After a very calm morning of packing, I headed to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) with my mom and dad.
First stop: Chuck a Rama for a FREE missionary meal!
Second stop: K-Mart to pick up a few "forgotten" items.
Third stop: Near the Provo LDS Temple to take a picture.
Fourth, and final, stop: The MTC! As we approached the security gates, I exclaimed, "Oh, my goodness! This is REALLY happening!" After unloading my two suitcases, and giving Mom and Dad a hug, I followed two elders up the sidewalk to start my service as a full-time missionary! There was a lot of EXCITEMENT, and believe it or not...no tears from anyone, EVEN MOM!
See you in eighteen months!
