Happy Anniversary, Elder Anderson!

I am happy to report that my brother, Taylor has now been on his mission for one year and he is doing great. He is serving in the Dominican Republic, Santiago Mission and I'm just so proud of him and the way he is serving the Lord. He's endured intense heat and humidity, recurring ingrown toenails, flooding, power outages everyday, and driving on the insane roads where no one obeys traffic laws! Right now he's serving in the mission office. He coordinates all the transfers and apartment moves and does all the driving and heavy lifting. This year has gone by pretty fast so I'm sure this last one will fly. I can't wait to see him again and introduce him to Justin! Congrats, Elder Anderson! We love you!

Check out these pics of the great work he's been doing.

Awesome pics! Although the umbrella seems a little pointless when the water is up to your thighs! I just keep thinking about those picture you showed me of his toe...yikes! I sure hope that is all better!

It's going by fast and it sounds like he's doing great!

WOW! I still can't get over Taylor being old enough to go on a mission. He looks JUST like your dad. I bet he is a great missionary. Hope this year does fly by. My parents come home in July and the time is just rushing by. YAY!!!

Amazing that he has been gone a year already. He looks so great and happy and that must make it easier on your family. Those photos sure brought back the memories for me. They were great to see, keep us posted.

Hopefully the second year will go faster! What a fun Easter. Oops, I put my other comment on a post from a while back. It was fun to get all caught up on your blog. I am slowly getting back into blogging.
