Today is a day we've waited for, since Jeffrey's birth 18 years ago. Our church takes the commandment given by Jesus in Mark very seriously. Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. My husband went and served for 2 years in Germany when he was 19. Our oldest son went to Louisiana when he was 19. Jeffrey is going to Portland, Oregon.
First he has 11 days in the Mission Training Center in Provo, UT. He arrives there at noon today. He has been visiting his Grandparents in Provo for a couple of days and they will take him up to the MTC.
