Dropped off at the MTC.

Last night Jen was set apart by our Stake President.  She was given a wonderful blessing where she was officially set apart as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and made an ambassador for Jesus Christ.  She was blessed to have the holy spirit with her to help her during her mission.  After which our family went to Leatherby's for Jen's favorite hot fudge.  When we returned home Rich was able to give her a father's blessing and he blessed her to be safe and to be able to learn the Spanish language,

Today was a bitter sweet day.  We didn't need to be to the MTC until 1:15, so we had some time to chill at the house for a little while.  We then went to Zupas in Orem for lunch which is one of Jen's favorite restaurants.  We weren't the only ones with that idea as the restaurant was crowded and many were missionaries reporting to the MTC today as well.  

We had a little time to kill after eating lunch and so we went to the Provo temple and took some pictures there. Jen's sister-in-law, Katie was not able to make it today because of some class conflicts, but they were able to say their good bye's last night.

It was difficult to say goodbye, but we know Jen will be a wonderful missionary and will touch the lives of many while she is gone.  After all...18 months is not really that long anyway, right?
