The evening Elder Kremer arrived in South Jordan I received a text from a missionary mom saying, "I just fed your son his first meal in the field." Of course I burst into tears because I was so thankful for modern technology. When Howard served in Texas . . . many moons ago there was only "snail" mail so mission moms didn't have the opportunity to send photos so readily because photos were all paper- not digital. While technology can be harmful if used incorrectly I am so grateful for the righteous way in which it is being used to keep missionary moms and families informed of their "stippling warriors," as Helaman speaks of the young men in the Book of Mormon, who are serving our Heavenly Father willingly.
His first assignment was actually a tripanionship. It was like that for several weeks.
Here are a few other photos that were sent to me in the first few weeks of Elder Kremer being in South Jordan.
Two days after the above photo was taken - at the same members house.
In West Jordan on a split with a different companion for the day.
Do some service for a member a few days after he went on the split in West Jordan.
