Mother's Day

         It was so wonderful to talk to Jacob for Mother's Day.  Unlike Kaber and Christopher, he only had exactly one hour.  He was great.  Every one got to talk to him for a minute but we never got past that- intense it is so great to hear you voice stage- to really just talking.  He was so conscientious about the time he was winding up with 4 minutes left and I told him I get all 60 minutes, not 56.  He does live right on the coast.  He said that the New Englanders don't really want to hear the gospel but his is in an area that has lots of navy folks from all over so they have some success.  His area has a population of about 50,000 people but their branch/ward only has 150 people.  He stressed over and over that it is so different from Orderville and he was so glad he was raised in the gospel and in a small town.  Before he got off the phone we got to have family prayer together.  It was great.  I got to talk to him for the longest.  I had about 30 minutes and the rest of the family shared the other 30 minutes. It was the best Mother's Day present.  I was a little sad that his president is against Skype or Facetime.  He sounded great though.  I can't wait until Christmas.
