Half of Ryan's district left Monday morning. Most if not all of these elders were going to Texas.
He said they gathered Sunday night to say goodbye. He also said that he cried like a baby. It was very difficult to say goodbye as they have become such great friends. He also said that they sang "God Be With You Till We Meet Again" and at that point they all started crying.
A few highlights from his letters this past week
*Ryan had some heartfelt prayers answered and miracles happen, his reply,
"I love Heavenly Father!"
*He wants everyone to know that he loves them! He wishes he would have had time to call all of his family and friends Tuesday morning, but there just wasn't enough time so he wanted me to tell of you that he loves you!
*He is encouraging his sisters and brother to teach their children the stories in the Book of Mormon. He said to make sure that they are learning one story a week. He cannot stress enough how important it is to learn the doctrines of Christ.
* a final message to Richard and I...
mom! dad! do not worry about me!! go and do! what Jesus needs you to do!!
And now for some pictures...
