Happy Mother's Day 2013

We were blessed that Elder Ellis was able to find an open Internet cafe on Mother's Day, which is Monday in the Philippines and a holiday because of elections.  They had to be off the streets by 4 p.m., so that gave us a little time to catch up! 
Elder Ellis is great and looks great!  Missing him tons, but he will celebrate 8 months in the field next Sunday.  He is blessed with a new companion, Elder Edem, who is from Cebu.  Elder Ellis is grateful to be a Senior companion, but also grateful that he can now practice his Cebuano even more. 
He did not write a letter this week, because we spent all of our time Skyping!  Thank heaven for technology.  Mother's Day was the best ever!
