We received an email plus a letter from Elder Martin today,  He is doing great and is in really good spirits. He and his companion Elder Vang from Yuba City California were made Zone Leaders over 30 Elders and Sisters.  Elder Martin is enjoying  his MTC experience but knows the hard work is still ahead of him,  He has  seen Elder Myers from the Alpine Ward a few times and said it was neat how he always had a smile. Sunday they had a Fireside with President Allen, the Mission Commissioner and afterword they were able to watch Sister Monson's funeral,  he said "the spirit was so strong in the meeting it was insane!" It was neat to see that he is doing well and his letters and emails have helped to put his parents at ease, he said he would send some pictures as soon as he could get some time.

May 22 2013 Elder Zachary Martin entered into the MTC, his spirit was good,  was a lot harder on his dad.  I asked Zach if he would have liked if his Mother and I just flew him up instead of me driving him up.  He said he enjoyed the drive.  I'll be the first to say dropping him off at the curb at the MTC was pretty hard on the old guy, but I wouldn't have changed it for the world.  Loved my trip up with him.

Zach days prior to entering the MTC,  He is excited but nervous about the start of his Mission to Calgary Canada.
