Charlestson, West Virginia!!! That's where Michael is going to serve the Lord for 2 years. He enters the Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT on Aug. 22.
We had a house FULL of people tonight. It was nice, noisy at times, and extremely gratifying to see all the people who came to support Mike in this. I felt amazingly calm as this day approached. Only in the few minutes before did I get a little bit antsy. He seems to be really excited about the location. He'll love the mission, I know he will. I just keep thinking "Appalachia" and "Coal Mining". I drove through West Virginia in 1994 on an LDS Church History tour. What I saw of it was really beautiful.
It's going to be very busy for us and Micheal as he gets ready to go. But, it will be a good busy.
