We had a nice call with Elder Ball on Mother's Day. His brother, Thomas, Skyped in as well from the University of Oregon. We received the happy news that Thomas has been called to the Maryland Baltimore Mission, Spanish speaking and he shared it with his brother Casey. One Elder Ball is coming home and one Elder Ball is leaving. We are so happy for their service to the Lord and dedication to helping our brothers and sisters in the world.
Casey is doing well. He is a little frustrated that he will be leaving beloved investigators not yet married and baptized as he had hoped. He loves the people so much and wants them to experience all the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives.
I'm not sure if we'll get another email from him before he is home (in 9 days!). I'm sure he will provide a last blog entry and testimony when he returns.
For those who are local, he will report on his mission at the following place at 9 am on May 24th:
875 Quince AveSanta Clara, CA
Thanks everyone for your love and support to Elder Ball!
From his mother, Beth
