After 1 week and 5 days at the Provo Utah Missionary Training Center, we got in the car and headed for Detroit. After 4 days of traveling across the country, we rested for a day outside of Akron with our daughter Laura and her husband Brian. They live just 3.5 hours away from our Detroit Mission, so we are happy to have them so close (and they are even more excited to have us so close)!
We've said goodbye and then goodbye all over again with many of our children, but now we are finally headed to do the mission field to do the Lord's work. We can't wait!
