This past week I received contact from people other than Elder Eldredge. They sent pictures and a few words. Here's what we received.

A text from Sister Annie Braithwaite to Wendy:
"Your sweet son and his companion, Elder Curtis, came for dinner tonight. He left an insightful spiritual thought before leaving. Thank you so much for sharing him with us! He is a remarkable example."
Our cousins the Dunyons were driving through Idaho Falls and got permission from the Mission President to pay Elder Eldredge a visit. This has got to be one of my favorite pictures ever of them on their bikes.
Sharlyn Dunyon wrote: "The visit was great! We met him at a member's home and then they rode with us to Walmart and back. They had two dinner appointments that night and so we didn't get to take them out for food. Also we tried to get them some groceries and they kindly declined.
"He looks great, is happy, and a joy to be with! Just what you would expect! It was a pleasure to be able to make that stop! His companion is very nice and he and Scott talked a lot about Texas.
"It's like looking at you (Mikel) when we look at him. You have done a great job. Scott got to see him for the first time since he was five."
