Mission Preparation

This is our first attempt at a blog so be patient with us.  It will get better as we go along.

Five weeks from today (September 23) we will check into the Missionary Training Center. That will be exactly 44 years to the day when I went into the old mission home on Main Street in Salt Lake City in 1968 when I was called to serve in the Chilean Mission.  We have been cleaning out, organizing, automating, and studying Spanish.  When Sally and I go on our 5 mile walks we work on verb conjugations and some simple dialogues in Spanish.  It sure makes the time fly!

44 years sure makes a difference!
(Ok, a little more than 44 years for Sally)
We'll be in the MTC for 6 days before flying to Concepcion, Chile.  We will be living in Talca, Chile.  Our assignment is "member and leadership support."  To be able to serve the people that I love is an incredible blessing.


  1. We are so excited for you.
    We will actually have our last day at the MTC on the 23rd and leave for Montreal on the 24th. It will be fun to follow each others missions.

  2. Excited for you guys! I'll be checking your posts! Buena suerte y que dios les bendiga!
