Veloma, from Cajun Country!

My nephew Matthew reports to the MTC day after tomorrow. He's been called to serve a mission in Antananarivo, Madagascar. He will teach the gospel in their native language, Malagasy. We're so excited for him!!! Here's his Mission Blog for those who want to follow:

He and Lou Ellen came to Louisiana a few weeks ago and we tried to have as much fun as we could....lots of delicious food was involved, including: cracklins, boudin, strawberry cake, and Andouille Chicken. Any more fun and we'd have ended up in the ER. :)

One thing Matt did that weekend was to sing in church on Sunday. I was so happy that he finally got to do that. He sang a beautiful rendition of "Whole Again" and it was awesome!!

I wish our whole family had been there, but it was still wonderful. Our group:
Don, me, Matt, Lou Ellen.

We love you Matt, we'll miss you!!!
Aunt Susan and Uncle Don ~

(fyi to readers: Veloma means "goodbye" in Malagasy)

The Best Day
