After learning that Elder Beach hadn't received is Birthday Package, Momma and Poppa Beach were devastated.
Always a little emotional on Sundays and after hearing news of a friends' dog being hit by a car just outside the church (he survived), Momma Beach pulled the car into the garage and noticed that she had been tagged in a Facebook post and burst into tears!
Jena Salazar, made this Missionary Momma’s week!!!
Elder Beach at church today. Since his package didn't get to him in time for his birthday on Friday, I thought a picture of him would soothe his Mommas broken heart!— with Tasha Worthington Beach.
- Jena Mendoza Salazar My family was leaving church after our block and I saw three Elders together greeting people as thy entered the Chapel for the other ward. I told my husband, "I have to see if they are Elder Beach". My husband, looking confused, followed along. I walked up and said "Are one of you Elder Beach?" Before they said a word, I saw his name tag, I saw which one was Elder Beach, and then I recognized him from his picture. I told him that I know his Momma from the MM FB page. I asked him if he received his birthday package, which he said he hadn't I wished him a happy birthday and asked him if I could take his picture. He said, "sure". I said, "Oh, your Momma is going to be so happy to see you" and he said, "I'm sure". There were also sister missionaries standing near by and I heard them say that their moms were on MM. I was so excited to see Elder Beach that I didn't think to get their picture too. He looked great and happy. After my 17 year old, soon to be missionary, said to me, "Mother you're so weird" hahaha I love it
