Off to the MTC

Yesterday was a beautiful day!  Excitement filled the air as now Mike was ELDER Michael Russell.  The setting apart was such a special and spiritual event for us all. What a great blessing to be apart of the Gospel plan.  This truly is the Lords work and now Michael will spread his word to all who will listen!  His testimony  of the Savior is powerful.  He is well prepared to teach.

After the setting apart was family time!  Goodbyes were exchanged and a fun time together at the Olive Garden, at Mike's request!  After, when we arrived home my heart was especially touched when Mike tucked in his little brothers and sisters telling them goodbye again.  He sang Emmie's favorite song to her..."I am a Child of God" and spent time talking with each of them.  He made Addi a huge dollhouse valentine box that she kept on her bed that night. Mike and his brothers are best of friends and they are super excited to send him their continuing comic strip of life's events.  The girls plan to help me in the kitchen with goodies to send off in packages!  It will be a great two years! Thanks for everyone's support!

So here's his address in the MTC:  He will be there for 10 days!
