Your young 18 year old missionary is doing well! Fun Fact: The man who wrote "I Hope They Call Me On A Mission" is in our ward. It is funny I should meet him right as I begin my mission!
Today Elder Findlay has done some figuring and figured that today (8/24) is my one month day! Since I have been out a month I figured I'd write to y'all. I was doing some thinking myself and have determined that when I get home in 23 months the first thing I want to do is go with y'all to the beach and drink Bundaberg while watching the waves and the sunset. I will prepare a spiritual thought to share.
This thought will be a culmination of all I have learned and experienced on my mission. I don't know exactly what it will be yet, but after two years of learning and service for the kingdom of God, there WILL be something profound I will desire to share with you, my eternal family.
Note: Graham refers to watching the sunset and waves while drinking Bundaberg. Bundaberg ginger beer is a family favorite soft drink from Australia. The Bundaberg company is located in Graham's grandma's hometown in Australia.
