Another story that he wanted me to put it. The day they were to fly to Guatemala Race's alarm didn't go off. He was the flight leader and had set his alarm for 4:30 AM. It didn't go off and so when he woke up at 5:30 to his name being called over the loud speaker at the MTC he had to RUSH to say the least. Anyway, he said he was up dressed and sprinting down the MTC hall in like 10 seconds. He woke his companion (Elder Mobley) with "HOLY SH#$%^ Elder we are late." Needless to say they made their flight without any problems. So later that day at his layover in Dallas my phone rings. I almost don't answer because I don't recognize the number on my caller ID. But when I do I am surpised with a voice saying "I need to speak with Kathleen Davis". Me: This is her. Voice: We have your son Race Davis detained because of items found in his suitcase and also for his behavoir". Well I figured Race had put Elder Mobley up to calling me but then I realized I had Race on the phone. It was awesome. I got to chat with him for a while before his plane left for Guatemala. He sounded awesome and excited. I hope that excitement stays with him for the next 23 months. Okay, so enough rambling on. Here is his latest email received today July 20th, 2009.
Familly.Sorry about this email its written on a spanish keyborad. muy dificil. Also we have very little time for email here so i have to hurry. Life is good. My firsst though upon walking through the guatemala city airport was holy sh33 everyone speaks spanish here. The MTC here is very small but about a thousand times better than the one in porov. the buildings are way nicer, the food is AMAZING and only about 100 elders. The showers were made by guats. The water hits my stomach.
