All who know Elder Coffman will agree that he has a constant positive attitude and can find happiness and the good in all situations and places. After just a few days in Fort Worth, where he is temporarily assigned before heading to Merida, Mexico, Elder C has taught several investigators, shared his testimony, expressed gratitude for all of his blessings, asked all of us to read the Book of Mormon, has fallen in love with Texas and would consider retiring there! Upon arrival, the Mission President's wife, Sister Sagers, served Elder C's favorite -- brisket with none other than Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce; which happens to be the Mission President's favorite also. It's great that in the midst of working so hard, learning a new language and proclaiming the Gospel, Elder C has found bits and pieces of joy in the little things like this.
His new P-Day is Monday and hopefully, he will send news that he's on his way to Mexico this week; apparently the visas are becoming available again. Regardless of when he departs, Elder C will continue to work diligently and joyfully. To say that he is happy is an understatement.
For now, you may send Dear Elders to the Fort Worth mission home or mail things to:
