Yesterday was a beautiful and emotional day as we dropped Mallory off at the MTC in Provo where she will spend the next two months preparing to serve in the Adriatic North Mission. We took pictures at the Provo Temple before taking her to the MTC. We had heard that the drop off is a quick experience. We were impressed with the organization of the drop off and it was exciting to see all of the reporting missionaries both on the Temple grounds and at the MTC. The volunteers at the MTC were gracious and welcoming as we left her curb side. We could see that they were trying to accommodate the arrival of many new missionaries, but they still gave me the opportunity for one last quick hug. She would want me to encourage everyone reading this post to send her a letter, many letters if possible and you are willing. And as always please keep her in your prayers.
