550 missionaries arrived at the MTC today. It was powerful to see all these young men dedicate their lives and sacrifice so much to the service of the Lord.
Above is our Grandson Jonathan arriving at the MTC. Each new Elder that arrives is hosted by an 'experienced' Elder (one who has been there a couple weeks already) so that the new arriving Elders don't feel lost and are well taken care of. The Elders with jackets are the newbies and the ones with white shirts are the hosts.

Erick Garlock, Jordon Overstreet and Jonathan Nat Hoopes all friends from Mesa flew into Salt Lake together. They were picked up at the airport by our other grandsons TJ, Garret, Colin, and Chandler, who brought the Elders to the MTC.
