On July 3rd, 2014 we were set apart and authorized to be Representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, by President Barney Lewis by assignment from a Prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson. It was such an honor. All of our children were present to witness this great event.
Most of our material belongings are now packed in this 8'x8'x20' Pod, with room to spare.  Just a reminder that our material belongings are not the most important things in life.The 2013 Toyota Highlander is packed to the brim with the few things we are taking with us.....including the bread machine (but not the heater..boohoo). 
Our 1st Selfie, taken just as we are about to get in the car to leave.  Elvis has left the building.
If we look bad, it's because we have been sleeping on a blow-up mattress for the last 3 nights while loading the Pod.  Thank you to all those who came to help us load up!


  1. I love your first selfie! I'm so proud of you for getting everything into that teeny, tiny box on your driveway. That may turn out to be the biggest accomplishment of your mission. ;-)

  2. Love you guys. So glad you are blogging so i can peek in on you a little better and more often. <3
