Mitch returned from his mission to Texas, McAllen Mission on November 6, 2008.
It is sooooo exciting to have him back with us. He reported his mission on Sunday and did a wonderful job, though it was a bit of a culture shock for him - he said there were tooooo many people and there wasn't enough "brown" in the building! He'll stay around Tucson for a little while. He's already helping coach wrestling at Marana High School. I think he'll be a good wrestling partner for Rhett! He'll also start school at Pima College in January and hopefully help at the Middle School with their wrestling season as well. And in his spare time, he'll work for Joel's Mobile Service washing cars.
Mitch had a good mission and it was very hard for him to come home. He spent most of his mission on his bike and went thousands of miles. His Spanish is quite good - he rarely spoke English as he was on the Southern border for 23/24 of his mission.
Somethings about Mitch remain the same (noisy, breaks things, etc.) some things have changed - he realizes what life is all about and that some things are very important. It's just been a delight to chat with him and get brief glimpses of his life during the past 2 years.
Welcome home Mitch!
