May 11, 2015
How's it going y'all? Thank you so much for the awesome Skype time. I'm sorry that I cried a bit. I didn't mean to get so teary-eyed, but please know that this just shows how much I love and miss you all. As much as I enjoy reading your letters and e-mails, I really miss hearing your voices and seeing your faces. To be honest, knowing that serving a mission would require me to have a limited communication with you all was the main reason why I hesitated to go serve a mission. This kind of sacrifice is neither easy or fun. However, I believe that if I didn't make this kind of sacrifice then I would never have known how much my family means to me. So if you think about it, it is a blessing disguised as a hardship.
Anyway, just wanted to send you a quick shout out that I love you all and miss you all. I also want to give you a heads up and let you know that next week is transfer week, so my next e-mail will come in on Wednesday. Take care y'all.
Hurrah for Israel!
