The Mission Has Begun!

On Wed June 5th, we dropped Brian off at the MTC! His mission has begun! He was ready. The last month has really been a whirlwind! In a very short period of time we... helped get Brian done with school, got everything bought that he needed, Brian received the Melchizidek Priesthood, gave his farewell talk, graduated from High School, got his room and belongings packed up, got set apart as a missionary, and did a lot of last minute things. And a good portion of that list happened between graduation on Thursday May 30th and the following Wednesday morning, June 5th! Less than a week. Brian and Marcia did a phenomenal job to accomplish all that. We weren't even very rushed on the day he went into the MTC. We had enough time to have some time together as a family that morning and then go get some pizza at Pizza Pie Café before taking him to the MTC and doing the now famous missionary curb drop off. Very bitter sweet moment for us all.

I will now be posting Brian's letters that he sends to us each week throughout his mission. We very much look forward to hearing about his experiences as a missionary and have every confidence that he will be a fantastic missionary.
