Au Revoir!

Just a quick post! I was so happy that I was able to go with Andy and her parents to drop her off at the MTC. Although it was just a few minutes really, it was what I needed to say goodbye and feel ok with not seeing her for so long. I'm so proud of her, and know that she will be an absolutely AMAZING missionary! I can't wait to get her letters and hear about all the fantastic work she is doing! Of course I'll miss her terribly, but somehow I'll make it through!! :)
Oh, and a few notes on the actual drop off process.
1. Because Wednesdays are the day all new missionaries go in, it is absolutely a madhouse over at the MTC. There were seriously lines to go and take a picture with your missionary infront of the gates! Crazy!
2. When you drop off your missionary you are giving a spot on the curb to pull up to and then the missionary is just supposed to get out and grab their luggage and go. And Andy was super nervous because she had two big suitcases and wasn't sure she'd be able to lug them around. But as we were driving in, we noticed that at each parking spot were two Elders with Host nametages, ready to help you with your luggage! It was seriously precious and it like made my day!


  1. oh how sweet! i love that there are Elders to help!! that process used to be so different, we truly were lucky with our 4! where is your friend going?? i hope she has a great experience!

  2. She's going to the Paris, France mission! Not gonna lie, I'm a little jealous of that one! :)
