After way too many experiences of humiliation and failure over the past 4 months I have finally passed my driving test. One of the things about being an alien is that even the most little of things, like a drivers license, or opening a bank account seem to be so much harder.

I am not going to say, “I deserved to pass,” I still can’t believe I did. All I do want to say is a special thank you to all of you who through taunting and laughing helped to produce added humility in this heart of mine.

Also, a special “shout out” to Andy Ashworth for the long hours of patient instruction and the use of your car– “Above and Beyond, Bro.”

I also want to thank the optimistic faith of my father who wrote this card over 6 months ago in anticipation of me, one day, passing the British driving test.

PS. Those who are wanting to phone us, we continue to be without a home phone line and may be for a couple weeks yet. It is like we are real missionaries now:-)

I am just as proud of you today as I was when you got your 1st drivers license @ 16! However, you did pass the 1st time around then, but as we grow older…our brains just take a little longer to process things :) . I love you all!! Can’t wait till you get a phone!! (Is Scotland into the 22ns century yet?)
