August 23, 2016 - This was our first note from Elder Paulson:
Hey Mom, just wanted to let you know my first day in the MTC went well. My companion is great, his name is Elder Hall and he is 21 years old, he is awesome. Hope you guys are good, I love you guys and things are good here! Love you
Elder Brady Atkin was there when we stopped for the drop off. I don't know how he knew to be there but I can't imagine it was just an accident, I think divine intervention or a tender mercy. What a crazy place it was. The minute Max saw Brady's face he was ready to head out. Thanks Elder Atkin for following the spirit! Love these new Elders!
