The Last U.S. Epistle

Taylor's last e-mail from the MTC came on Saturday.  He will depart from there on Monday, Sept. 3.  He will fly to Mexico City first and from there to Merida.  There are several other missionaries that will be on that first leg.  We are hoping to be able to speak with him from the airport before he leaves.

He had an "in-field" orientation where he received instruction on what things will be like in the field.  The meeting focused a lot on working with the members and Taylor said that he will work hard to make sure that he becomes really good at that.

Taylor received several packages this week and was very grateful for them and for all those who remember him and have written to him. It has been a blessing.

 Taylor is pictured here with one of his teachers.  We're not sure which one.  His native teachers have been so helpful in his learning of the language.

This is where Taylor has spent many an hour and day learning the language and teaching skills.

Taylor had the opportunity to serve as a missionary Host.  Here he is pictured with a friend he met at BYU, Elder Seth Bohman 
 Taylor's great Aunt Karen and Uncle Floyd Tarbet were at the MTC preparing to serve their next mission in North Carolina.
 Here he comes, Merida, Mexico!!
Letters can now be sent to the mission address.  Stamps are 85 cents to Mexico for a regular letter.  DearElder.com will be free or a pouch letter can be sent to SLC for a first-class stamp.  Thanks, everyone for all of your support for Elder Jaussi!!
