Well, I attended the first of what will likely be many missionary farewells in my lifetime. Two of our friends from across the way, in Felt 32 are headed off to their 2-year missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our whole apartment could not be happier or more proud of them, but it is bitter-sweet to watch our friends leave.
So early Sunday morning, we all got ready to go up to Lehi (with the exception of E and C, who had to stay and teach a lesson). Our friend drove us down and we were able to sit through both of the boys’ farewells with a long and very interesting intermission in between. Overall, it was fun to listen to them speak in Church and catch a little glimpse of the wonderful missionaries that those two will become.
