You thought Belgium would be the safest place in Europe haha. Just wait until you come over here and I tell you what has happened and what I have done in these scary nooks and crannies here. It makes our Mexico trip and all the places there look like Disneyland. But it is a lot prettier here.
So Braden should have his call in 2 weeks or so? COOL. I think he is going to Thailand.
A good friend of mine here that serves in Bruxelles has a brother named Braden who just got his last week going to Frankfurt Germany. Our neighbor mission. Who knows, he could follow the pattern.
The pictures posted on MormonNewsroom of the sister missionaries were while we were there giving her a blessing. We were there with the Liege senior couple and sisters. Those pictures were taken right after we got there with them.
The ones of Elder Wells are really crazy to see with his parents. We just set up schools thing a few weeks ago because he gets home just after me. Now his parents are with him but they can´t truly see him yet. We were at that hospital to visit him too but they didn´t allow visitors, understandably. Elder Hirsch is good friends with him.
3 1/2 months and I will be back on the other side of the war it seems. You might think it´s crazy, but I am going to ask president to remain in Belgium for the rest of my mission. I have too much heart and soul here it seems. We will see what happens at the end of April though.
I feel so bad Belgium has become the victim to so many countries ridiculing them for security and attacks while in deep mourning and rehab. This country is wonderful. Incredible. It´s split in language and government but they have come together across all boundaries this week.
Things are good here, getting better. mostly schedule changes are what is hard. It sounds like Elder Empey really really wants to stay out for his last 3 months, and I agree. His parents don´t of course, so we will have to see about it. He could touch countless lives here staying for a little bit. I don´t think Wells will be able to which is heartbreaking. But I don´t know his thoughts on it either. Hopefully Sis Clain can get out to her mission and the MTC still. She would touch so many with her story and what just happened.
Anyway, dont want to bore you with writing more.
Love you, Trev
