You Guessed It...He's Gone!


Yesterday, Sept 3rd, Bryant reported to the Missionary Training Center! I can't believe it! He will be there until Sept 24th and then will spend 2 years in the Lansing, MI mission. We are so proud of him and know he will be an excellent missionary. Reed and I were able to go to the MTC with him and my parents to say the final good byes. It was my first time at the MTC-it is a horrible place! Everyone is just so sad and your missionary disappears through some door for 2 years! Mom did ok, Reed got mistaken for the new missionary, and the old lady thought I looked great in blue.

Yesterday I was driving by the MTC around 3:30 thinking, "today is Wednesday, so hundreds of families said goodbye to their missionaries today". I didn't know your brother was one of them! Good luck! You've done it before, so you know the drill. It can't be any easier, though. I hope his mission goes well!

Joel has worked at the MTC for four years and still gets mistaken for an elder ALL the time. So I hope that didn't hurt Reed's feelings too much :)

That's funny about Reed! Now I'm kinda glad that we went down to CA instead of the MTC. We miss Bryant anyways without that scene!

great picture. We were glad you could come with us. I know it helped Bryant to have some smiling faces there. I think he would have been glad to have Reed stay and serve another mission with him.

I so wish we could have been there. I heard Laurie showed up for like a minute because she got lost. Haha, that is very typical of her. I hope everyone had fun.

He is going to be a great missionary, can't wait to hear all his great stories.
