Oh - I almost forgot! I have a "PREVIEW" picture to show you what is to come soon. This is one of the pictures that Colton sent. This is Elder Ewards and a member that he works with. The member is 7 foot 2 inches tall, and as seen, towers over Colton making him look like a Munchkin.

October 06, 2012

He's been spotted!!!  News of Colton just minutes after the afternoon session of Saturday's Genneral Conference closed .....  Badger's mother recieved a phone call from Colton and Chesley's friend Drake! He and the single's ward ran into Elder Edwards and his companion! The word is he is doing well, and he seems to get along well with his new companion. They had an investigator with them, which makes my family proud. We are so proud of him for serving our Lord and Savior and for furthering His work. We love you Colton, but next time ..... Please send a special word to your mother! She is sadend since she feels she is the only one who doesnt get to "run into you" at conference.  (Also - we have recieved pictures from Colton! Finally! We are working on getting those posted to the blog).
