This is Cache's mom. I just had a 5 minute phone conversation with the self-proclaimed Elder Big Deal. He will fly out next Tuesday, July 26th, to Eugene Oregon. He'll serve there (speaking English unless he just happens upon some Portuguese-speaking person) until his visa for Brazil arrives. The other "stray " elder in his district whose visa also hasn't arrived, will be going to Nashville TN.
Cache sounded great and positive and upbeat as ever. Still, I know he'd really like to get to Brazil asap. Let's all pray his visa clears very soon. On another note, my favorite missionary companion was from Eugene OR....... I love missions and the way they bless everyone involved :)
