Her training begins. As of 12:30 Mountain Time today, she is in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. She is learning how to teach the fundamental principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. And she’ll be learning how to do that in a new language: Cantonese. These next nine weeks are going to be packed! We can’t wait for her first email to hear all about it!
Leah was set apart yesterday as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by her stake president, Pres. Mark Cluff. Her mom, dad, her brother Emerson and sister Annalise were there. We loved it.
She got up early to go to the airport to fly to Salt Lake City…only to have the plane delayed for maintenance. The maintenance eventually led to her flight being cancelled. She still made it to see her sister Lauren in Salt Lake City, and it was a long day.
