Taylor's visa has been finalized and he will be departing on schedule from the Provo MTC on Monday, Sept. 3. He is so happy that he won't have to wait to go to Mexico. He said in his last e-mail, "On Monday night Elder Jaurez and I got called down to the travel office and they told us that we were going to be driving up to SLC the next day to sign for our visas at the Mexico Consulate. First of all, we were excited to get out of the MTC bubble and everyday routine but mostly because our prayers were answered! Austin Emch rode up in the bus with us too along with Riley Sanderson. A good time was had by all for sure!" They will be leaving the MTC at 6 a.m. on the 3rd and we hope to be able to visit with him for a bit by phone when he gets to the airport.
Taylor and his group have been working hard to speak their language (Hablar Su Idioma) and he said, "This
week with the HSI, I feel like my Spanish really took off. I feel like I'll be able to hold my own in
Mexico but the listening is rough! They talk so fast."
Letters written to the MTC should arrive before Sept. 3. After that, they are to be sent to the mission address or sent through the pouch system. See sidebar for options. Thanks to everyone for writing to him. He has enjoyed hearing from so many people.
