2 days...to Utah!!
Well, here we are! Welcome to Elder Timothy Gunnell's blog! I, his mother, will be posting pertinent info, emails of interest, pictures, and any other special words to share with all of our ward family and friends. We just had our Farewell Party for him at the church and soooo many people showed up. It truly shows us how blessed we are to be part of such a wonderful ward. We honestly feel that this ward, the leaders, have helped raise both of our boys. They are as much a part of the success of Morgan and Timothy's decisions to serve missions as those boys by themselves are. We hold all of those leaders in such high esteem and can never thank you for all of the love and care you have shown them. We love each and every one of you. So, Timothy is assigned to labor in the Monterrey East area of Mexico. This is an area close to the Texas state line. However, Monterrey East has been divided into three additional areas and, for the time being, we are not sure exactly what area he will be finally assigned to. We will know this by the time he receives his flight plans to leave to Mexico, hopefully sooner. Obviously, we will share this as soon as we know. So for now, 2 wake ups from now, we are almost ready to send him off! I will put addresses on here for you to write to him. Receiving letters are the highlight of a missionary's day, so let's keep them coming! I know two years is a long time, but he will do so well, and let's not forget him while he is busy. Until later, respectfully, I am.... Momma Wilcox, mother to Elder Timothy Gunnell
