Elder Price has left the country!
The day finally came, Elder Price finished up at the MTC and has departed for El Salvador. He had a 2 1/2 hour lay over at LAX on Monday night, ( yes LAX!!! but per missionary rules, we did not go see him, even though the thought did cross our minds:-)) and was allowed to call his family during this time. What a joy it was to hear his voice. Colin was upbeat, and excited, and sounded like a real missionary. He loved the MTC, but after 8 weeks was very anxious to get out and start the real work. Colin was able to call Lindsey, Mike, us and of course Grandma Collene and Grandpa Mike. The flight lasted through the night, leaving LA at midnight and landing in San Salvador at 5 am. We are certain he arrived safely (no calls from the mission President!) and are anxiously awaiting word about his first assignment. We will let you know as soon as we hear from him.
