Elder Tibbitts Update

Elder Tibbitts has been out one year now. He loves his mission. He loves teaching people and seeing their lives change. He rides a bike most of the time and has tried many new foods. He has had good health without any problems with his diabetes.   It is so neat to read his emails and letters to see how much he has grown.  (His mom forwards emails to me.) His writings sound just like him talking, and he always expresses such great love and appreciation to his family.  What a blessing that would be to be the mother of a missionary.  He's still quite a character, just more spiritual.  This picture is one of their recent baptisms. 

He is currently living with members in a mansion in Goldsboro. Here is a glimpse of the movie room.  I'm sure he would have loved to watch Ironman, but The Testament will do for now. (He's very well taken care of.)  He and Whitney still write on a regular basis and no one has come even close to winning Whit's heart over.  We shall see what the next year brings!  Nearly all of her close friends are either engaged or already married.  Crazy!  She's only 20, so I keep telling her she's smart and she'll never regret getting her education completed before marriage!!  By the time Trent's home, she'll be student-teaching!  So....if things work out, she'll be nearly done and ready for the working world and a wedding.  Time will tell.
