Setting Apart

Today has been a special day. At 8:30 this morning a neighbor that used to live in Hawaii came by and brought us each a flower lei. They were real flowers. They said that it means farewell not good bye. If you throw the lei in the water it will always come back. That was such a special thing for us.

We spoke in church and Andrea surprised us by being the musical number. She played a hymn medley of "More Holiness Give Me", "I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go", and "How Great Thou Art". It was nice to have several family members there. We had Steve and Lisa, Richard and Virginia, Jericho, Garrett and Emilie, and Ken and Kate. Then there were many other friends.

My topic was on the divine signatures of the Lord in my life and Paul's was why he was thankful to have me for a companion. A newly returned missionary from Brazil was the first speaker.

We were set apart in the afternoon by President Wallis and many of the family members were able to stay for it.

We have felt such a wonderful spirit all day. We are now offically Elder and Sister Wheeler. We report to the MTC in the morning between 10 and 11 a.m.
