September 2010 Here are a couple of neat pictures from Elder Mayle’s day to day life.
26 August 2010 Elder Anderson went to training for three days so Elder Mayle spent that time in Bamburg with Elder Consentino from France. Apparently he and Konrad became instant friends.
25 August 2010 Elder Mayle was assigned to his first area – Coburg, Germany. His companion is Elder Anderson from California.
24 August 2010 Elder Mayle arrived in Frankfurt, Germany and was greeted by his mission President and his wife.
After traveling all day, an 8 hour time boost forward and a day of missionary work the elders were very tired. Elder Vail was having a very difficult time staying awake. Therefore, he was instructed to hold his tie above his head and if his hand fell below his head, the others slugged him. Sounds like fun to me~!

Tyler entered the MTC with the expectation of 9 weeks of preparation prior to transferring to Germany. With studying four years of the German language in high school he was already well prepared. The language coordinator interviewed Elder Mayle and informed him that he was being put on “Fast Track” and would be leaving the MTC ahead of schedule. He was transferred to the International District for the remaining time. The total time at the MTC was 18 days.
I should introduce you to Konrad. I won’t attempt to tell the story of how he became Elder Mayle’s mission mascot. That is between those who work at the engine repair shop where Tyler worked for the past four summers. However, I get the feeling that Konrad may be the “Where’s Waldo” throughout the next two years.
Elder Mayle’s district leader saw this picture and thought he may be related to Konrad. Does anyone see the resemblance?

Before Tyler left on his mission, I (his mom) had requested a picture of him by the Missionary Training Center sign. Well, this is what I ended up with. I’m not sure who his companion is.

This is Elder Mayle’s first district at the MTC. You can see the Provo Temple in the background.
21 July 2010 Mom wanted a nice photo of Tyler before he left on his mission. We also had a family picture taken as well.
Before Tyler left on his mission he decided to not cut his hair for awhile. Why? “Because I can…” was his answer.
