Missionary Farewell

Today we spoke in our Ward --
MB on Elder Holland's "Ensign to the Nations" and
Howard on Elder Perry's "God's Hand in the Founding of America"

My former college roommate,
one of the first people I met at BYU,
 came to support me/us.

Former CTR6 Primary students serenade me
with "I Hope They Call Me on a Mission"
and a special portrait.
