In two days, Spencer will officially become Elder Fisher.
In four days, he will enter the Missionary Training Center. While he is there, he will learn to speak German (actually, remember his 3 years of high school German and then learn a lot more) and how to teach the gospel in German. He will spend about 6 weeks at the Missionary Training Center before he gets on a plane that will take him to Germany.
After he enters the MTC, he will write home once a week (either letters or e-mail) and call home twice a year (Mother's Day and Christmas).
We look forward to hearing about his companions, his teachers, the people he meets in his mission field, his struggles, and his triumphs. But most importantly, we look forward to hearing about his growth in the gospel and his increasing love for the people he serves.
