Saturday (October 11, 2008) we held an open house at our home for friends and family. Nearly 80 people came. What a wonderful, loving show of support.
On Sunday afternoon, we went to Layton to see our oldest grandson receive the Aaronic Priesthood. Afterwards, our daughter took our picture in front of our home.
At 8:00 pm tonight (Sunday, October 12) we were set apart as full-time missionaries. This picture shows (from left to right) the first counselor Pres. Eric Vogel, our stake president, Pres. Brent Roberts, Beverly, and me.
All of our children came for our missionary farewell activities in July, but when our mission was delayed three months, those on the eastern seaboard couldn't make it. This pictures shows those who actually attended the setting apart. We thank those who came and those who stayed back at the house and babysat the younger grandkids.
