Jamie Enters the MTC

Jamie flew to Utah on January 10th to spend the evening with family there.  Kieth and Grandma picked hime up from the airport in the morning and spent all day getting him the last minute things he needed.  They also made sure he had some fun before he left.  The family got together that evening for dinner and had Cafe Rio salads at Rich and Kristin's house.  Goodbye's were hard but everyone is excited for Jamie and all the wonderful things he will experience these next 2 years.  

Jamie wanted to make sure he got his last favorite meal so Grandpa Kieth and Grandma took him to the Creamery on 9th.  He ordered a kids meal because it was the "perfect amount of food for a stomach with a little anxiety"! He was a little nervous about the unknown but excited to get started.

Jamie barely remembered to call me before he left!  Luckily he did and I got to say goodbye and tell him how much I love him!  He looks a little cold!  At least he will only be at the Provo MTC for 3 weeks so he won't freeze to death.

He was greeted by a host missionary that was also going to the Dominican Republic.  It was a warm welcome.  He said his goodbyes to Grandma and Grandpa and off he went!  Good luck James-- we sure love you!!

  1. Thank you for this post, Ana. The pictures are especially nice. I was just writing Jamie that it was hard for me to imagine what it was like for him since I had no frame of reference. This is exactly what I needed to fully see what he's experiencing. I've been using the dearelder.com site to write to him this first week and it's such an awesome tool! Anyway.. thanks again.
