February 22, 2010

We said our goodbyes to our family over french toast and tears at Magelby's Fresh in Orem. That was one of the hardest things we have ever done. We were so excited to start this Mission adventure, however, saying goodbye to all those you love was almost torture. It felt so final, I struggled more than I thought I would trying to leave home and family behind. Angie dropped us off at the MTC with all our luggage and there was no going back. We ended up being housed at the nearby Super 8 Motel because they were remodeling the apartments for Senior Couples at the MTC. The stay at the MTC was memorable for several reasons; the Spirit that permeated everything we did, Missionaries singing at the firesides, the amazing choice of food, the chance to testify of Jesus Christ in our training, the new friends we met there and the chance to gain some confidence in what we were about to embark on. The training was great but it was difficult to sit that long for that many days. Terry really had a hard time with the chairs, they were not soft! But all in all it was a wonderful experience that we will never forget!
