JD farewell July 26th

What a special day... the spirit was so strong. JD talked about his two best friend...Andrew and Travis and what a example they have been to him. Talked about faith and how with faith anything is possible. Talked about the temple and his experience... on how he loves to go and feel the spirit, the peace when he is there. He shared his testimony of the gospel and how he can't wait to share that with others on his mission. His sisters sang "In the Hollow of thy Hand" they sounded like angels. We knew this was a older but when Kristy, Nacole and Jenny were young this was a song on a tape that we listen to every sunday morning getting ready for church. The girls would always say "we want to sing this for our brother when he goes on a mission" so it's a special song. JD is a special young man that we know will touch many lives...he has touch ours.
What a special day for our family...we love you JD ...so proud of you!

I love my missionary!!


Proud parents...need I say more


what would life be without friends...known eachother since they were in diapers

Hug of Excitiment from a sister

More Hugs

Where will JD Go?

Mission call in Hand

Proud moment with words from his dad...

"Proud of YOU Son"

As you can tell we aren't excited or nothing Ha we all couldn't wait to hear where and when. With Family and friends gather. Josh in Texas, Jenny in Flagstaff weren't able to be with us so Kristy and Nacole had them on the phone...testing...testing can you hear me now...we waited ...JD began to read "You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in theKentucky Louisville Mission." WOW its real my little boy is going on a mission, I can't believe it here time goes by so fast. How proud I am of JD for the good young man he is, for choosing to serve his Heavenly Father. I know that there are people that only JD will be able to touch, many that are waiting just for him. I love you JD thank you for being my son.
