This is just a quick post to let you know Elder Moore received his email address. It is: firstname.lastname@example.org
His p-day is Friday so if anyone can send him off a quick email I think he would love to see some waiting for him. He is technically only suppose to email back to family and write letters to everyone else, so don't be disappointed if he follows this rule!
I have received a couple of more letters from him. He is picking up the Spanish language fast. They were able to answer phone calls from people calling in to learn more about the church or request Books of Mormon. He said this really made him feel like a missionary. Also, they have members who pose as investigators and ask them questions to give them better preparation. He said that made him a little nervous but all went well. He continues to stay very busy with 10 hours a day spent in class - and for an active boy like Brandon, this is hard! Being a District Leader also carries additional responsibilities like conducting meetings, doing interviews, and of course picking up the mail for the nine other elders.
One of his best friends, Eric Lee, enters the MTC tomorrow (December 17) and I am excited they will be there for Christmas together. I am sure Christmas in the MTC will be very spiritual but also quite different.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and will remember all the missionaries throughout the world as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, of whom they testify daily.
