Mothers Day!

Yesterday we all got to talk to Elder Fraley on skype! We had a 3 way call going on so that Emily could be a part of it too! It was great to see him. He looked so happy! He's having a great time. He sounded amazing to us when he spoke French, but he says its still pretty tough at times. He loves his companion, Elder Dayton. They get along really well! He took time to talk to each one of us. One of the things I thought was neat, is that Emily has been doing a lot of missionary work in St. Martin. Apparantly some Sisters and Elders that have met her, have talked to Aaron about her. One Sister even told him that she had one of her most spiritual experiences on her mission with Emily when they were teaching one of Emily's friends. Aaron said that pres. Mehr has even told him that he would send him there if Emily found some people to baptize! Pretty neat. Aaron said that they would make a great team! 

Elder Fraley was pretty emotional at the end of the call and said that he's been emotional lately. He said that there is a family that recently was sealed in the Temple. Last time they went over there though, the couple was fighting and are talking about divorce. It was hard for him to see that and made him sad. He expressed how thankful he was for parents that have a loving marriage and love their kids! He is grateful for the example of our parents! 

Anyways, this email is short since we got to speak with him yesterday, but he did send a bunch of pics. Martinique is beautiful...Enjoy! 

It was really good to see and talk to you too! I apologize for getting so emotional myself! I've become a baby on my mission! haha. Real men cry, right? 

Our Heavenly Father is molding and shaping me out here. Definitely the hardest thing I've done. But definitely the most rewarding. 

I'm so very grateful for each and every one of you; for all of the support and all your prayers. 

We went on an adventure last Monday, so I'll send a bunch of pictures! 

I love you all! Cross your fingers for the 24th! and 7th! (that's when they have baptisms scheduled!)

Love you Mom! Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

So this is the town of St. Pierre, The whole town was destroyed by the volcano eruption in 1902. Lots of cool ruins.

Mont Pelé
