A note from Mom:
We have a post office box and I am known to not check my mail for a week or so at a time. And, besides -- the guy that always checks the mail is out of town for 2 years. : o ) But, yesterday a sweet friend who works in my school cafeteria (she also works part time at our post office) said, "Hey - have you checked your box lately? You have something sweet from Elder Mayberry." So, today I went to the mailbox and there were 4 - yes four letters from him. The first one was dated Sat. Oct. 16th. Boy that would have been good to get instead of me freaking out not hearing from him for 9 days !!
So - he is doing well. Pretty homesick. REALLY WANTING LETTERS !!!!. Struggling with the Spanish and pretty down on himself that he is "the worst one in the class." (Boy, does that sound like Chad ...) His companion is from Wacco, Texas. He says that he hates Blink 182. Then he says, "So we don't bond much". He is feeling the Spirit so strongly and getting into the routine of things a bit. He has only been there for 2 weeks. It takes time. He gave me a list of things to send to him. Can't wait 'til Thursday for another e-mail. Man - can't get enough can I????
VERY IMPORTANT: For all of you who got his address before .... that is not correct. Please see the address listed on the blog. SORRY about that !!
