Bright and early this morning, we sent Elder Berrett off on his epic two year adventure to serve in the Montana Billings mission, with a quick stopover at the Provo MTC.
We bid him a somewhat teary eyed goodbye this morning, even though we tried to keep it cheerful and upbeat.
He was fortunate to be able to fly out with a friend of his, Elder Logan Hendrix.
And then he was doubly fortunate enough to bump into our Stake President in the Salt Lake airport. (Not a total coincidence, President Layton had a layover and promised to look for them)
After they got their luggage, they were met by Elder Berrett's grandma who was kind enough to buy them lunch and drive them to the MTC. (and then she called me to thank me for the privilege of doing so, and had to choke back some tears in the process)
