Yay! We were able to speak to Braken this morning from the Salt Lake International Airport before he boarded his plane for Indiana. He called around 5:20 am. That was the best way to wake up ever!
He said the MTC was good, but will be glad not to go through it again, haha. He learned a lot and is very ready to be in Indiana. He sounded soooo good, just what we needed to hear! He said he really didn't get homesick, just when he talks to us on the phone, lol :) No, but he did have a couple of times where he felt a little homesick, but it wasn't bad. They kept him busy enough that he didn't have time to think about it, I guess. He said he is flying out on Delta Airlines with 60 other missionaries at 7:30 am. I guess they'll be flying with angels then :) Could you imagine what that flight looks like and Feels like?? Ahhh, wish I could be there . . .
We hope we'll get an e-mail from the mission home soon stating that he has arrived safely and all is well.
