Officially A Missionary
Tonight Bryan was set apart as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. What an amazing experience for our family!! We gathered together with the ones we love and listened as Bryan was given council & advice from the Stake Presidency and then set apart as an official missionary. The blessing that President Eddington gave him was so beautiful and said so much about the incredible young man Bryan is. We were all very teary and I don't think Bryan ever stopped crying from the moment he walked in until the moment he left as a missionary. One of his best friends, Luke, was just made an Elder in preparation for leaving on his mission and was able to stand in the circle at Bryan was set apart. Just a few days before this, Bryan was given the honor of being Luke's escort as he went through the temple for the first time. The spirit was very strong in that room and I will never forget the sweet feelings shared between those I love most. We wish Garrick could have been there, but he was there in spirit!
