HE'S COMING HOME!!
YES, HE'S COMMING HOME!!! December 11th at 3:15 pm we will be reaching for, and holding our son in our arms once again!! I am such a proud momma of this wonderful young man.....through diversity and challenges he has served the Lord with all his courage and strength.....a mission is not the easiest thing a young man will do in his lifetime, but it is the most rewarding and memorable experience he will EVER do....we have watched our son grow in leaps and bounds not only in the Gospel and his Testimony, but within himself....I think he now knows his own strengths and abilities, and especially patience and love for others....he went out as a timid young 19 yr old boy and is coming home a strong courageous Man. This has proven to be such a great experience not only for him, but for our family.....in his words....this was an EPIC experience. We are so proud of him. He is finishing this mission in the Vancouver area....La Center to be exact. He has made some wonderful memories, and we are going back with him to meet some of those memories....we are also going to do a session in his favorite temple...the Portland Temple....this should be a great experience. Lots of logistic things to work out....one being, we need to get his bike home....get his registration completed for LDS business College etc.....his life will take off so to speak when he gets home....but keeping busy is a good thing after a mission. I just can't wait to see him come down the escalator ..... It will be an EPIC day! Our family has been so blessed by his service, and I am so grateful for him and the sacrifice he has made to serve those in the Kennewick Washington Mission....love you Rob.
