an update on chris! (Elder Stott..)

For those of you who haven't met him, this is Elder Chris Stott:

Elder Stott has been on his mission in Phoenix, Arizona for almost 6 months now, and he LOVES it (despite the unpleasant mix of wickedly hot temperatures and fair skin).

He loves the people he's meeting and teaching, he loves his new companion (and shows his love by cooking for him every day..jealous) and the other day he told me that, at this point, he really doesn't want to leave Glendale.

Most importantly, he is absolutely happy.


I'll tell you more about him..

through pictures!

One of his favorite hobbies is writing me sweet letters on P-Days.

We haven't missed a single week!

He recently discovered he enjoys panning for gold.. who woulda guessed.

(He found a spec of gold a few weeks ago, and sent it my way ~ *romantic sigh*)

Oh, and he is a little bit obsessed with his ties. These aren't even all of them...

(His mom and I speculate that he sent this picture to hint that he wants more ties...instead of sending him more ties, though, we figured he didn't need anymore.. backfiiiired.)

some more photos that I don't feel like captioning at this moment:


My favorite quote that pertains to this situation:

You will come to know that what appears today to be a sacrifice will prove instead to be the greatest investment that you will ever make"
-Gordan B. Hinckley 

And, why I believe what I believe:
