"Hey Mom, this is your son, Rudy" About 5:45pm

I received an unexpected, but approved, 1 minute phone call from Elder Wright at about 5:45pm tonight saying that his Visa really hasn't arrived and that what he sent me in the mail was only his flight plans. Apparently, the ambassador to India is holding up the missionary visas so their wait is indefinite. In the meantime, he and his companion will be serving in the Salt Lake City South mission which incorporates Sandy and Draper, Utah until their visas are approved. Two of the elders in his district, also going to Bangalore, were sent to Washington state to wait it out since they are both from Utah. He mentioned that he sees cousin, Riley Harper, every day. And that he really doesn't need anything, he's still working on the candy we sent him. He sounded very upbeat despite the news and told me numerous times that the call was about to end. I just ignored him and kept talking. So, I will update the blog with his next address as soon as he sends it to us. Thanks for all your support and keep the letters coming through
