Today we were able to talk with Elder Cody Johnson on the phone for about 45 minutes. He had a lot of fun stories and is excited to be out of the MTC and head to California and then onto Ukraine.
About an hour after we had hung up I received this picture via text from a random Utah phone number. It read "On a flight with your missionary! Cute kid"
After I thanked her she wrote this : "You're welcome! We love the Ukrainian missionaries! My husband was in the first group of missionaries to go over to Ukraine and open the mission many years ago, so he's been sharing some stories with them. It's a great mission with great people that will love your son for their whole life."
What a tender mercy. :)
