On June 2, 1972, we never imagined we would be so blessed with such wonderful children and grandchildren.  We hope we can help Chilean families become "families forever." (Los Angeles Temple grounds).

MTC to LAX to Lancaster (ordain Adam a High Priest) to LAX to Santiago to Concepcion and finally to Talca where we will live.

LAX, December 1968 (blurry).  Doug Pulsipher, Elder Howard W. Hunter (Apostle), Lee Pulsipher.
This Sunday, September 23 we leave for the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.  A week later we will fly to LAX and drive to Lancaster so I can ordain Adam a High Priest.  We will spend Sunday night near LAX and then on Monday join up with the other 7 young missionaries (including 2 cadets on a 2 year leave from the Naval Academy) going to the Chile Concepcion Mission.  On my way to Chile 44 years ago I ran into Elder Howard W. Hunter at LAX.  He became President of the Church in 1994 until his death in 1995. He was my stake president when I was a young boy and was our family's bishop before I was born.  My oldest brother Lee (+20 years) was at the airport in 1968 to see me on my way to Chile.
