Our Missionary

Chad recently took part in his first baptism. It was a really great spiritual experience for him, as you can imagine. This lady's name is Luz. She was very open and accepting of the truths of the Gospel from the first lesson on. She has a family that she hopes will also join the Church. A couple from the mission office and Chad's ward emailed me this wonderful letter. It is a great compliment to how well he is doing there, serving the Lord.
"Dear Brother and Sister Carey,
My husband and I have been called to serve a mission in the Chile Rancagua Mission. We will be serving as the office couple. We have also been assigned to attend church in the Manzanal Ward with your son, Elder Carey. This afternoon he was one "radiant" young missionary as he performed his first baptism here in Chile. He did a great job. He looked pretty handsome all dressed in white. His cheeks were rosy and his smile beaming as he stepped down into the baptismal font. You should be proud of him. He's working hard and making great progress in espaƱol.
Love, Hermana Mason"

Local cuisine Chad's companion, Elder Jenson. You can't quite see the name tag, but he is wearing Chad's. Looks like they really like to give each other a bad time! They got to go to the zoo one P-day.Chad found his soulmate...

Hi Loralee,
I found you on Tanner and Andreas blog and wanted
to say Hi. So glad to see that you got your blog going!
It is fun and addicting. I have to keep myself off of it sometimes or I don't get anything done! Anyways, your family is getting so big, and I can't believe how big your Tanner is. I can't believe how fast the time goes, I still remember when you had him and named him Tanner!! It sounds like your missionary is doing good. Landry is preparing now to go. He will probably leave around Dec. or Jan. Our third...I can't believe it! Well, I hope to keep in
touch better now. Thanks for being such a big part of Tanners mission. Someday we will have to get up
there. I would love to meet you all. Love ya, Kathy
