Elder Gridley is set apart and on his way to the MTC

"Ciao" - Elder Gridley
Last night Austin was set apart by our Stake President and received an awesome blessing.  All the kids lined up along the table to witness this wonderful experience.  Austin shared his testimony and all the kids were able to give a little advice.  Some of which were "Be nice".

After being set apart we got home and Isaac was excited to be his "companion" and slept last night in his room with Elder Gridley.  It sure is neat to see the little guys look up to the older brother setting a beautiful example.

When Austin arrives to the MTC, the format I've heard is totally different from 1991 where family went in, and attended a short meeting and made their teary farewells in the building.  Now it's a quick drop off your son with his bags at the curb, get a hug and get on your way.  We'll find out in just a few hours.  Cathi is taking all the kids out of school this morning so they can witness Austin making his first step into the field.

If you would like to email Elder Gridley his email is:

His MTC mailing address is:
