Elder Mask

We got an e-mail from Trevor last Wed, Feb. 4th. He told us that Elder Clate Mask had come to speak to them the night before. I was so excited to hear this because Bro. Mask was my seminary teacher my 9th grade year. He was the best! That was definitely my favorite year of seminary. For our final, he brought out a stack of tests and then put them down. He told us that we would pass when we sent him an invitation to a mission farewell or to a temple wedding. I did send him my wedding announcement and he actually came to our reception. The really neat thing is that our reception was at the Rasmussen's house. I wish Trevor had known that. I'm sure he would have been even more excited to hear him speak.

He may be a little difficult to recognize. He's the one with the glasses and mustache. This was 1992.

Here he is today.

MTC - Week 1

When we saw the Missionary Training Center sign is started to become clear that Trevor really was leaving on his mission! We've waited 19 years for this day, but all of a sudden I wished I could start those 19 years over again. On the other hand, Trev was totally ready to get on with it!

This seemed like an appropriate place for a picture. In one year Trent will join Trevor in the mission field.

When you enter the MTC, parents go in one door, missionaries in the other. We were standing on the other side of the room. I wish I could hear what she was saying to him!
This is the spot where a sister clips their suit pocket so their badge will slide in.
