We haven't actually gotten a letter from Elder Gray in a couple of weeks. Last week both his dad and I were able to "email chat" with him a couple of times. We learned basically he is alive, has been sick with a cough, sore throat, headache. (YIKES), he thinks I jinxed him because I keep asking him to tell me details of how he's feeling. Lesson learned...what I don't know can't hurt him or me :)
He got the watch that Elder Lynch carried to Africa for us, and he is working hard and loves his mission.
He did send pictures last week and those have been added to the blog. Thanks for all of you who support Elder Gray with your letters, thoughts and prayers.
