I Love To See The Temple....I Went Today!

It's always special when someone goes to the temple of The Lord for the first time....but it's an incredibly spiritual experience when it's for a young man who is leaving his family and friends for two years to dedicate his time to serve a mission.  It was a beautiful, sunny day at the Oklahoma City Temple.  It was almost as bright as the light surrounding Greyson.  It was a beautiful day.

Then we were able to spend the rest of the evening with family to celebrate and say so long for a couple of years.


Saying Goodbye to Grandma was tough...

Manaus Brazil You Say?

Elder Link has been called to labor in the Manaus (Manous) Brazil Mission and will report on May 8th, 2013!
WoW!  That's really far away....  We have over 5 months to prepare before he actually leaves for the Missionary Training Center (The MTC).  We have suits to buy, short sleeve shirts, pants, shoes, ties and that's about it because Greyson is only allowed to have 43 lbs. of luggage.  43 pounds?  For 2 years?  So we are packing light...
The passport and visa paper work are in and now we wait and hope that everything comes in by the time he is to report to the MTC in Brazil.
His suitcase is packed and ready....but his momma is not....
