His companion is Elder Jesus Juarez from Rosenburg, Texas. He and his family were baptized when he was 18 and he is now 22. He served a "mini-mission" in Houston before being called to Merida, Mexico. He and Taylor are the only two in their district headed to Merida. Others are going to serve in Mexico City, Columbia, Peru, Tempe-Arizona and Canada. Taylor says that Elder Juarez is really quiet and easy going but that he must shake his head at the 19-year-old missionaries at times.
One of their MTC teachers is Bro. Galan from Quito, Ecuador. He says that Bro. Galan reminds him of his Spanish teacher in high school, right down to his manerisms and accent.
Taylor says that he has run into several missionaries that he knows from Riverton and BYU. It must be great to be surrounded by so many friends at the MTC.
Taylor's MTC address is:
Elder Taylor C. Jaussi
MTC Mailbox #359
2005 N. 900 E.
Provo, UT 84604-1793
