Wow! Malta! I guess this is about as far south as my son can get from the mission head quarters in Rome!  First area was Sicily, second was Crotone, and now Malta. Donavon has just a little over a year to make his way north…..if that is where he is meant to go.  For now it’s marvelous Malta and a new language and people to fall in love with.  🙂

  1. Wow, Malta! We spent some time there when we were sailing and loved it. It’s goreous–the culture, the history, the people. You are going to have so much fun visiting him there.

  2. Deborah, thank you for your comment. I bet sailing was glorious. All the photos I have seen of this place are amazing. Judging by the number of exclamation marks, (something he used to criticize me openly about for using in texting and other social media) I think my son is pretty excited about his placement. I wish I were going to this place this summer instead of next summer. I can’t wait for the adventure to procede.
