Dateline: April 3, 2017, Reporting at the Mission Training Center in Provo, Utah

I never imagined traveling with so much luggage - count them, six large suitcases and two briefcases. We will spend 11 days here training on missionary service and a mission office software system.

Dateline: March 24, 2017, It's Official

President Horsley came to our home and set us apart as full time missionaries of the Church. Being set apart is a formal action by the local ecclesiastical leader and includes a blessing of spiritual guidance.  Despite our intent to do so, we neglected to get a picture with him.  We left the next morning for Salt Lake. There we spent time with Shauna's mother and traveled to Kemmerer, Wyoming to witness the blessing of our youngest grandchild, Tiffany & Geoff's Katelyn (born January 1st, 2017).
