Elder Heimuli bids a fond farewell to his bros at the Provo Temple grounds. They'll see each other in about 3 years!
Some family photos before we head down the hill to the MTC:
Then a few serious missionary poses...
And we're off to the MTC!
We've been in this familiar situation many times before and I must admit it doesn't get any easier. In fact, I think it's getting harder...at least it is for this missionary mom.
The nice man at the front asks whether we are bringing an elder or a sister, tags our car accordingly, and directs us to the stop.
Lucky #7 is our stop where a smiling Tongan elder from Oregon, Elder Kofe, becomes Elder Heimuli's Host to welcome him into the MTC.
Sixty quick seconds of pics, hugs and kisses, and Elder Heimuli walked away with a huge smile on his face. See you in two years, Elder! We love you.
