Christopher should be safe and sound now in Mexico. We don't expect to hear from him for a few weeks or so. We did, however, get to talk to him on the phone on Monday while he was at the airport waiting for his flight to leave. It was so wonderful to hear his voice and to hear how upbeat and positive he was. All the kids got to talk to him, and I think he enjoyed that more than talking to anyone else. He is giong to make a great missionary of himself.
Christopher's good friend, Mike, left for the MTC today, which means that they just missed seeing each other by a few days. Christopher will always be number one in the eyes of his nieces and nephews, but Mike came in a close second.
