This morning we received a phone call from Elder Dilling! He called from the Salt Lake airport. He and a number of other Elders and Sisters were on their way to the New York North Mission. It was exciting for our family to gather around the speakerphone and speak with Carson. He shared some Spanish with us, which sounded very good. He also shared an experience he had while at Temple Square last Friday. He told us that as he was leaving the Celestial Room in the temple, he ran into Elder Jeffrey R. Holland! Elder Holland is one of his two favorite apostles (his other favorite is Bednar). Elder Holland shook Carson's hand and chatted with him briefly about his mission. Carson said this was one of the highlights of his mission so far. We know Elder Dilling will be a great missionary. We are impressed by his testimony and love of the Gospel. He has really grown over these past two months. We appreciate that Elder Dilling has been blessed so abundantly by all the love, support and encouragement he has received from friends and family. We look forward to posting Elder Dilling's first email from NYC!
