He'll Be Home Soon!

Two years ago we said goodbye to our youngest son as he left to serve a two-year full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was called to serve in the Arizona Tempe Mission.

We took him to the airport and hugged him.

And then we watched him as he went through airport security. We wanted to be with him and see him as long as we could.

As he left airport security, he turned and waved at us before he walked away.

We stayed and watched him on the big screen in the airport. 

We stayed until we couldn't see him anymore.

This Friday we will be taking pictures of our youngest son at the airport again. Only this time they will be pictures of him walking towards us. Friday, July 17th, our son officially completes his two-year mission. We are so excited to see him again!

We are happy that he chose to serve a two-year full-time LDS mission. It's been wonderful these last two years to read his emails about his experiences serving as a missionary in Arizona. He was already a wonderful young man before he left. He has grown into an even more wonderful young man because of his missionary service.

This is a picture of him when he arrived at the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo, Utah on the day he began his mission. Our daughter sent this picture to us two years ago. She, her husband, and one of our other sons, were able to pick him up from the Salt Lake City Airport and drop him off at the MTC.

I love this picture of him and have it up on our refrigerator. Our son loved his mission and has served honorably and well.

I'll share photos of the happy reunion with our son in a future post.

Thanks for stopping by!
