I'd like to say that I can't believe it's already been a year ... but I can believe it. It goes by so fast when it's not your own child. Matt has officially been gone for one year now preaching the Gospel over in Florida. As we pray that the hurricanes will steer clear of him, he is hoping that he'll get to experience one. He will be baptizing a Hindu woman on September 2nd. This woman started out not even believing in Christ and now has a very strong testimony that she knows is true. Matt has been working hard and as you can see from these pictures, he is making it fun too. We love you, miss you and are very proud of you Elder Shaker!

Hey! That's great! Fun to see pictures of him... We're glad he is happy in his (His) work and doing well. I'm with YOU, however. No hurricanes near Matt!

Tell Matt to put down the crack pipe and quit wishing for a hurricane! It'll only take ONE to change his mind LOL!

He looks great, I can't believe how he's grown up.

You did good girl!

A year already? You must be so proud of him! One more to go?

Yep Brandi! One more to go. They typically serve for two years, so next August is going to be one great reunion!
