SEPT 29, 2012 - It's been a grueling and emotional week. While both excited and nervous to serve the Lord, both DJ and Jordon managed to pack all their takeable belongings into two suitcases and a backpack. Of course, their rooms are anything but clean! We took the trip out to Utah with all the excitement of a long-awaited vacation. We stayed with friends in Pleasant Grove while getting the last few things the guys needed. On Tuesday we went up to the MTC (Missionary Training Center) to take pictures there and at the temple. These are two of the photos we took. Wednesday was the hardest. We pulled into the parking lot across from the MTC around 12:30. Reporting time: 12:45. That gave us 15 minutes for joking, hugging, good-byes, etc. At 12:46 we pulled into a parking spot at the MTC where two young men came over to help our guys with their things. One was going to the same mission as DJ, the other was from the city Jordon will be going to. Awesome! With last hugs, we watched our two young men heading up the walk to begin their very own adventures. This will be a log of those adventures.
