September 7, 2015: PDay change?

We thought his P-Days were on Thursdays, still. Guess not. That is good for us. Our family can email him on Sunday nights! Yay! I think he still is wanting to hear from home more often. I can do that. I just keep thinking that I should wait until I hear from him, so that I don't interrupt his work.

9.5.15 3:30pm Temps
So in the supposed "lost letters home" I gave each person a scripture
to read, one that I felt each needed, some I don't know why... But the
gifts of the spirit I guess XD I invite each of you to study these
selections and ponder and pray about them as much as you can
Wallgren family- D&C 101, find out what will happen to you while I am gone
Mills family- D&C 33, work hard as member missionaries
Alex- Moroni 10, idk why I has prompted, but apparently you need it
Chuck- alma 32, see above
Carson- 2 Nephi 31, one of the most important sections to know as a missionary
Ethan- Ephesians 6, stand strong
Jonah- ether 12, weaknesses v. Strengths
Mom and dad- D&C 76, remember what we are working towards as a family!!!!

Elder Braden R Wallgren
Montana Billings Mission
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
9.5.15 New Training Companion: Elder Potter

I'm glad he told us. We've all been kinda waiting around for this. I hope it comes via snail-mail, still. Maybe he added the wrong address. He also sent another note of just stuff he needs: non-logoed tshirts (per Pres Wadsworth) for service days, emergency money and MORE LETTERS! He says,"I love you so much and can't wait to hear from you again!"

We miss him tons. Both Steve and I had different moments of missing him this weekend. We couldn't be more blessed than we are to have such an amazing kid in our lives. It's hard to believe Heavenly Father loaned him to us for this short time. I'm not done learning from him. I, too, can't wait to hear from him again!

I wish I were a fly on the wall to see and hear every detail. What's for dinner? What did you read about today? Who was the funniest character you've met this week? I know. Mom is learning patience!


  1. Love it! We will send him out something this week!

  2. Is that Elder Harry Potter (just kidding) I should have guess he would have known how to stitch a photo together for that first one. It's pretty awesome of the landscape! Can't wait to see it, in oh say a month or so. Snow everywhere and him bundled up like a snowman! Glad he's sounding like a missionary already! But then it is Elder Wallgren, what was I expecting. Can't wait till the next installment.
