It's Official, Con's an Elder

Monday. Aug 4th at 8:30 our kind stake president came and set Connor apart as a missionary.  It was the most awesome blessing.  We then had all day Tuesday before he flew out.  To be honest we weren't sure what to do....He had a father's blessing from Mike.
 Then Mike's dad called and said he had tickets to the Ogden Temple open house.  What a blessing.  We were able to go to that with Mike's parents.  It was awesome, other than my dare eyes were leaking all day.
 Mike's parents also had a bar-be-que at their house.  They fed Connor some steak for his last U.S. meal and let him say good bye to his cousins.
 By the time he got to the airport, he was just ready to go.  It was hard to watch him walk through security
 but he was excited and ready and had already met some other Elders going to his mission.

Here's Connor's first official email.  Hopefully from now on the blog will be all him.  Not sure what to think about this.....real Guatemalan experience?

I made it here safely. Its been the longest day of my life. The guy who pick us up at the airport told us if we ever see anyone get shot to not worry, it happens all the time...Elder Wallace
