Mother's Day & Skype Pics!

We had a wonderful time last Sunday talking/seeing Tyler! Thanks to Michelle's diligence in learning modern technology, we got to talk with him and see him through SKYPE!  It was a real treat!  He looked great, and sounded great too!  One of the highlights was when Michelle told him that the baby was supposed to be able to hear voices and that he should talk to her... so he started talking to her and jokingly told her to "kick mom!"... Then she did!  We all enjoyed a good laugh! He is really enjoying his companion and loves teaching.  They have been getting busy and are actually having a tough time fitting everyone into their schedule!  One of the highlights they get to do is play basketball and then teach english to college students! They have started a program of 50/50, where they teach english for half of the time and the gospel discussions the other half of the time! When he first got there the work of sharing the gospel had been tough due to inaccurate rumors spread by other churches, however due to Tyler and his previous companion meeting with leaders of local churches many hearts had been softened.  Aside from the regular missionary responsibilities of teaching and preaching, he is the assistant zone leader, and is primarily responsible for teaching, training, and all-round helping the Jr. companions in his zone.  He is loving the Korean people and particularly many of the ward members where he is serving! He is even loving the food... even a few things I wasn't all that fond of! :) All-in-all he is doing well, and loving the opportunity to serve The Lord and the Korean people.  We're so thankful for him and his faithful service, and are grateful for the wonderful blessings that it brings to our family!  His only request was to remember him in our prayers and keep the letters comin'!
