Kurt called at 7 a.m. this morning from the Salt Lake airport. They changed his original flight plans so he told us he was calling in the late afternoon, but with the changes he didn't know if he would have time, and this way he figured he could catch his dad at home. We visited about an hour. Cade, Casey & Nichole talked to him also. He told us he would try to call from Houston around noon...and he did, but only for about 15 minutes. It was good though because Neil was able to talk to him. He sounds great! He is ready to get to the Dominican Republic & learn some more. He met some lds teens at the Houston airport who had done service in the DR and told him how absolutely beautiful it is and that they would be able to see the ocean from the MTC there. He was traveling with about 27 other elders going to the DR MTC (18 of them going to his exact mission). He bought some pass along cards at the MTC bookstore before he left so he could pass them out to people on his trip there. The missionaries at their last American hamburgers at the Fudruckers at the Houston airport. Guess we won't get to hear his cute voice again until Christmas! Hopefully, he will email us before too long when he gets there.
