As Vera mentioned on her blog, on February 10, 2010 Neal entered the Provo MTC (Missionary Taining Center) to begin his service as missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is always an emotional time. Neal has planned for this for most of his life. Neal was to report to the Brazil MTC, however he did not receive his Visa so he was reassigned to the Provo MTC. It is anticipated that as soon has his Visa comes through he will travel to the Brazil MTC.
Ann, Neal and I traveled to Salt Lake on Tuesday, had dinner and visited with our Son Alma and daughter Jeanette and their families that evening. On Wednesday we finished some last minute things, and drove to Provo. We were to drop him off at the MTC at 1:30 pm. We arrived a little early so we walked around the Provo Temple grounds for a few minutes.
We are pleased with Neals desire to serve. We miss him, but know his is doing the work of our Heavenly Father. We wish him success in his sevice.
