We took "Elder Baker" to the airport this morning
bright and early to catch his flight to Salt Lake City.
From there, he was picked up by Tyler (his companion for the next hour)
and they had lunch at J-Dawgs before Tyler dropped our
newest Elder off at the Provo MTC to start his MISSION!
This was not the easiest of days for this momma.
Or for his dad, or his sisters for that matter.
We will miss his smiling face and his funny
sense of humor, but we are so very proud of
him and know that this is exactly where he should
be right at this exact moment. We, as his parents and
his family have done our part. We are handing him
over to the Lord for two years, The Lord will now do His.
He will help him to learn and grow into the man that
Dillon can and should be. His own faith and his testimony
will grow and he will help so many people in the Philippines
and will change so many lives there for the better.
How can I be sad about that? I cannot.
He left with a HUGE smile on his face and
he was ready to GO!
The MTC drop-off with Tyler after a good ole fashioned
pump up speech about how awesome missions are!
That's a couple of happy handsome guys right there,
proud of my new missionary and my returned missionary.
We have been saved for these latter-days
To build the kingdom in righteous ways.
We hear the words our prophet declared;
"Let each who's worthy go forth and share."
