and she's off!

Today Sister Egbert officially headed to England to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!!!  Such a cool experience to send her off as a servant of the Lord.  She was so ready to leave and so excited to serve!  She was set apart as a full-time missionary last night by President Traveller.  What a beautiful blessing he gave her to start this wonderful adventure.  The spirit was so strong, it was tangible.  Grandma Jo, Brenda, Matt and Megan joined with our family.  We took her to the Salt Lake airport this morning.  She met up with Sister Katherine Hanks from North Logan.  She and Sister Hanks both graduated from Sky View in 2011.  It seemed to relieve the anxiety a bit as they met up with one another and felt that comfort of familiarity.  There were several other Elders and Sisters, all going to the MTC in Preston, England.  Some of them were going to the Scotland/Ireland mission and the others to England.  We will look forward to hearing from Sister Egbert next week.  May God be with her.
