My Son is Going to the Philippines Manila Mission
Today, my son went into the Provo MTC (Missionary Training Center) to prepare for an LDS mission to the Philippines. I am both excited and nervous for him. Here is a picture of him with his wonderful paternal grandparents. I served an LDS mission in the Japan Sapporo Mission, and while leaving the MTC, (we said goodbye to him at the gate going in) I saw two elders with Japanese nametags. I greeted them in Japanese and spoke to them for about a minute. They'd been in the MTC for four weeks, and understood me! I will miss my son, but I am confident that he will do great things in the Philippines.
