They spent some of Christmas Eve by going out to a Chinese restaurant. On Christmas Day, he did have 1 (mom's) package to open. Nobody else's reached him before Christmas. You can see below what he did with the dollar store duct tape for his new comps stocking and how he decorated their shelf. He expressed much gratitude for everything inside the box, even though it wasn't that much. "I would like to give an immense THANK YOU , with love for the package." he said. ( I am so grateful he received that package!) He didn't get even one Christmas card and I know at least a dozen were sent! Where do they GO? Hopefully they are just delayed.
WE SURE LOOK FORWARD TO AND LOVE HEARING FROM ELDER MARTIN. He again thanked everyone for emailing him prior to hanging up the phone with him. He says he is happy to be where he is.
*** Kade receives his emails about every Monday between 4-5 pm and has to read and respond to all of them in that short time frame. He loves getting emails. Please keep them coming! firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don't be discouraged if you don't hear from him for a couple weeks! I know him, he is methodical and is probably responding in the order they arrived to be fair, and, of course MOM is first... because.. well... there are severe consequences if she doesn't hear from him!
Check down a few posts for information about mailing packages and rules like 3 stamps for letters. There is also a pouch address for the Mexico Pachuca mission I will post next time.
