A Monday Surprise.

I hadn't expected to get an email from Matt so soon but apparently he will have access to email more than just on his P-day. Yipee! Here is the latest from Elder Edwards (with a few personal things removed for protection of the author/reader):

"Tell nora I love the imaginary friend drawing that i got from you guys! I sent you guys a letter in the mail on Saturday so i image you'll be recieving that soon. My email time is super short which is way lame so I never end up being able to say everything i want to tell you guys. And if ever you wonder what im doing im either A. reading the scriptures B. butchering the portugeuse language C. Sleeping or D. hitting on sister missionaries haha Everyone is soo jealous of me becasue of you guys! I'm getting way more letters, packages and emails then them ha. I only have thirty seconds left so I'll continue to write you guys and i hope to hear back from you soon. Tchau!"

Gotta love our Matt, always making time for the ladies. Love you!

I Have Never Been So Excited For An Email!

We got this email from Matt today so I am assuming that his P-day is Fridays. Apparently he will have access to email at least while in the MTC. I am giddy with excitement. Can you believe this is now in the MTC serving the Lord!?! What an inspiration. Love you Beaver!
"Ola meu Amigos! So far I've been in the MTC a total of 48 hours and things are going pretty good. My campanion is from Ethiopia and is the first Ethiopian ever to come to the Provo, MTC! He speaks 4 languages and is excited to make portuguese his 5th! I've been learning a lot so far and I'm actually meeting with an investigator today that only speaks Portuguese! I miss you all at and can't wait to hear back! Love Elder Edwards (p.s. I couldnt remember heathers email so please forward this message to her. Obrigando!)"

Day 1.

Hello friends and family. We put this blog together so we can all keep track of Matt and his journey over the next two years. He entered the MTC today and we couldn't be more proud of him. He was nervous but excited and we can't wait to hear from him with in the next week or two to see how he is adjusting to the world of a missionary. We will post letters and pictures he sends to us and if any of you receive letters or pictures or have any content you would like added to this blog please contact us at We love you Matt and are so proud of your decision to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! XOXO  -Nicole and Heather

Below are the email address and snail mail address for Elder Edwards. We don't know yet if he will have access to email in the MTC or in Cape Verde so until we update further snail mail is the safest bet.
