Elder Denton II has left the MTC and is on his way to Nicaragua. We were blessed with an early phone call this morning and were able to speak with him for about 20 minutes. He did have the chance to meet about 10 other missionaries who are also going to Nicaragua when they all had a chance to formally meet their Mission President and wife. The other Elders/Sisters going to Nicaragua are flying out tomorrow to go to Guatamala for the next 6 weeks to practice contacting people with their newly acquired language and in a spanish speaking country to help them get used to the culture. They are only allowed to speak spanish there.
Elder Denton II is the only one of the group that is on the expedited course, so he is traveling alone today. He mentioned that the MTC was never quite on track with him that he was in this expedited course and they were trying to tell him he would be going to Guatamala too. He explained what he was doing and he was happy to see that his ticket this morning was to Nicaragua! He's got a little mexi-accent (no disrespect meant) like his brother, Elder Kyle Denton, who is in Argentina. It's kind of funny. He loved the MTC and everybody in his class, even as crowded as it was...he wouldn't have had it any other way.
We don't know when his p-day will be. Because he is coming in at an odd time he doesn't know if he'll get hooked up with a companion, or just work in the office until the other's catch up. So many unanswered questions and we'll just have to wait until he contacts us, or his mission president contacts us to let us know he has arrived.
