Best Mother's Day! Talked to Cody for 1 hr and 35 minutes.....It was so great to hear his voice and to be able to ask him tons of questions. He said that the President emailed them earlier this week and told them that the best Mother's Day gift they can give us would be for us to be able to see the person that they are becoming. Cody talked about how much he has changed and learned already on his mission and that he is excited to be able to show us how much he has changed and what he has become. He talked about the importance of following the mission rules since this seems to be a problem among many missionaries in his mission. Because of this, their President is getting stricter with following the rules and Cody is being very diligent about this. He is anxious to see what happens with transfers tomorrow...will him and his companion stay together or will he get a new companion that will still need to train him for 2 more weeks but yet this will make him the trainer of the area since he has been there and knows it well. Guess we will see since they will get a call tonight if there are any changes. Can't wait to get his email tomorrow....and pics....since he said he finally got his hair cut but it is too short. He feels good about his Spanish and says that many people are surprised that a "gringo" can talk so well since many of the missionaries that have been their longer are still struggling to pronounce things correctly. He thanked me for putting him in Spanish Immersion...I guess it pays off!
