last week my youngest sister entered the Provo MTC
i have a lot of feelings about this:
first and foremost, i am thrilled for her. the decision to serve a mission is such a selfless and mature choice. and in discussing this decision with hannah my respect for this girl grew immensely. she has such a strong testimony and desire to serve our Lord, Jesus Christ. she also is just really excited to teach people the gospel. it just makes me so proud of the woman she is.
in addition, i am so sad because the last time i saw hannah was in may. living across the country definitely makes it difficult when it comes to big events. it was so hard not to be there when hannah when to the temple, spoke in Sacrament meeting, was set apart as a missionary and representative of the Lord, or when she entered the MTC.
i am just grateful for technology and that i was able to talk to hannah many times before, facetime a few times, and listen to her awesome talk.
i love having a missionary out!
it's so exciting and it definitely makes me want to be a better missionary myself.
i really just can't believe this girl is now a missionary.
but i really couldn't be happier about it.
this was when we said our final goodbyes to hannah way back in may.
