He passed his Spanish test!

At the suggestion of his brother, Elder Kyle Denton, Cody called the MTC to set up an evaluation test of how well he speaks Spanish. He got the call this morning and a Sister quizzed him on his Spanish. 5 minutes later she determined that he was doing very well and would advance to the 3 week class, putting him in Nicaragua about July 7th (as long as his visa papers are in by then!)! Nice job Cody!

Cody spent time with his Mom on Saturday purchasing a new suit, which came with a couple pair of pants. They are getting hemmed up and hopefully he'll be sporting them to church on Sunday.
Last Monday Cody called Elder Kyle Denton's family that would allow the missionaries to use their phone on Mothers Day. Thank goodness he does speak Spanish...he made sure the number worked and spoke with the Grandmother of the house, who said he spoke Spanish very well, according to Kyle.
We came home from church yesterday and Cody made the call and we spoke to Kyle for about an hour. Kyle thinks that Cody will spend just 3 weeks in the MTC because he's so good with Spanish already. We have a number for Cody to call to see about taking a test (over the phone) that will help the MTC evaluate which class Cody should be assigned to. We'll see how that goes.

28 APR 2010 - Elder Cody Denton gets his mission call!

It's 7:55 am and I am already waiting for the mailman to arrive with Cody's mission call. I'm hoping he remains fast asleep on the couch so I can just go out and get it and hide it from him...just kidding!

We met at McDonalds at 4:30pm because that was the only place that everybody could be at the same time...it was a busy night for everyone (I had a court of honor, Connie needed to keep working because Women's conf starts tomorrow and she had to pick up Cyndi from the airport at 8:30pm and Chazz was working...at McDonalds!).

Lisa, Rebecca and Jaime were there. Nanette Davis came and so did Becky Jorgensen and her kids (and Kips kids, who played on the toys). Chantel came too, and she was excited because this was the first time she got to see somebody open their call live!

He is going to the Nicaragua, Managua North spanish speaking mission! What a relief that it was spanish speaking...he so wanted to go to that because he wants to become a spanish teacher and he speaks it all of the time via the internet to people in Columbia, Honduras, etc.
