Mission Presidents Training

A few surprises when we arrived in Utah. Our dear friends the Walkers and their kids surprised us. I saw them at the bottom of the escalator and almost took a dive. Thanks for coming Walkers, we love you.
Then we arrived in our Hotel and a beautiful box with a ribbon was on the table. We thought, oh how sweet, Mission presidents get a treat. We opened it and WOW, it was our PURPLE MAN! Thank you Tim and Audrey.

We got to go with our kids and grandkids and some of the cousins to dinner one night.

The setting apart was really special because my parents came and my sisters, Beth and Julie and spouses, my children and grandchildren and a few nephews. Elder D. Todd Christofferson set us apart. It was beautiful. Elder Uceda is from Peru and will be in our Area Presidency.

These are a few of our missionaries that will join us after they go to the Lima MTC for another six weeks. They are so darling. I cried in the elevator after I left them... It's going to be a long 3 years of goodbyes.
This week we were taught by all of the twelve apostles and the first presidency. Tomorrow we have sacrament meeting with the prophet. It has been a glorious week. We leave on monday for Peru. We have training in Lima for a couple of days and then we are off to Trujillo!
