Dropping Sister Bullock off at the MTC

Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Kelsey was set apart as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!  Our Stake President, Bishop, Kelsey's Branch President, and Rick all took part.  It was a beautiful and spiritual experience.  The hard part for me was being asked to say a prayer before her setting apart.  Those who know me well, will know that I started crying before I started praying!  This being a "missionary mom" thing is a very emotional journey!  Shortly after she was set apart we left for Provo about a four hour drive.

We decided to go take some photos around the Missionary Training Center (MTC) and the Provo Temple that morning, as we knew there would not be time to take any photos when we dropped her off at the MTC.

There is no longer a "Welcome to the Missionary Training Center" sign, but I believe this is where it used to be.

The Family - well, all that could be there

The anticipation builds

After our "photo shoot" we had a fabulous lunch at P.F. Chang's. We finished lunch just in time to get Sister Bullock to the MTC at her appointed drop-off time.  Enjoy these picture of the drop-off process....

Feeling a bit nervous!

Wow, it's really here!

And she's gone!  Good Luck Sister Bullock - We will miss you!

  1. I almost started crying just watching her leave! I don't know if I could have left my family for 18 months. Can't wait to get more updates!
