Well, we are now celebrating the next 100 day mark!
My parents FINALLY got a letter from the Baltic Mission Office to say that my brother will be returning home from the land of Lithuania on March 3rd. I think my mom is much relieved to finally have a date and I'm sure she cried when she read the e-mail.
We are so excited to talk to him on Christmas and then it will only be another 70 or so days until we get to see him in person.
I'm a little worried that he's not going to like any of us and that we won't be "spiritual" enough for him. Hopefully within a short amount of time we can corrupt him back to the goofy brother we once knew (while he somehow manages to keep the good attributes of a missionary, as well).
His letters have been consistently excellent throughout his two years. He seems to be serving his heart out. I told him I'd tried to read the Book of Mormon before he gets home. It's going slow, so I must be gettin' on with that.
Here's to the LAST 100 days!
