Called to Serve in the Washington Spokane Mission
"Come, Thou fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace, Streams of mercy, never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise. While the hope of endless glory Fills my heart with joy and love, Teach me ever to adore Thee, May I still Thy goodness prove."

Off To The MTC!

Well, Taya is off on her Mission.  On Wednesday, our family all went down to Provo to take her to the Missionary Training Center.  It was a beautiful day and we left early so we would have some time to visit a bit before we needed to be there at her scheduled reporting time of 1:45.  We found a Zupas Cafe there to have some lunch, and it was cool to see several other missionaries and their families all gathered there with the same idea.  After lunch, we drove up to the Provo Temple grounds to spend some time, take some pictures, and say our goodbyes.  Then it was time to drop her off at the MTC. This is the first of our children to serve a mission, and as a father, I have to say I was not prepared for how hard it was to let my baby girl go.  But I know that she is now in the Lord's hands and will do a great job serving as she shares the gospel message.

Big hugs from her brother!
With her sister.

The whole crew!

One last hug!

Goodbye for 18 months!

Note:  Angie and I (Taya's parents) will be updating this blog with letters, pictures, etc. for family and friends to keep up to date with her missionary service.  We're looking forward to her first letter! - Brad
