My nephew is leaving to go on a LDS mission, to the Canada Calgary Mission. Tonight, Becky and I went to support him as he was set apart as a full-time missionary. It is a joy to listen to the blessing that is pronounced on the individual (Taylor in this case). I am so grateful that he is willing and able to go serve the people in the area of Calgary. It brings back very fond memories to me. How thankful I am that I was able to go and serve the people of the Netherlands.
I hope and pray that our boys will understand the importance of serving a mission and learning all that there is to learn. It literally changed my life and taught me some valuable lessons.
