These are our cute MTC trainers and other senior couples who will be serving, as we are, in a mission office. Some will be in the USA, some in far-away lands. We're in classes all day, with wonderful devotionals and firesides and spiritual highlights mixed in everywhere. We're loving it, and being scared to death all at the same time. Study time each morning and evening and meeting so many wonderful missionaries. What a choice experience the MTC is!

The Adventure Begins!

At the Stake Center prior to being set apart as full time missionaries.

At home the evening of our mission farewell.

Study group friends at our last gathering before we leave.

Today we said goodbye to our beautiful children and grandchildren for 23 months as we embark on a new adventure as senior missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We're headed to Michigan...but first, learning at the Missionary Training Center for the next 11 days. We're excited, sad, nervous, happy...and a ton of other emotions all wrapped up together. Day one as missionaries!
