Off to the Mexico City Missionary Training Center

This morning Jacob went with his family to the Salt Lake City airport.  We took one last family photo together and then said goodbye. He boarded a plane for Mexico City. The rest of the family went back home. Our hearts are heavy, but we are also happy that Jacob is serving as a missionary and following Jesus Christ.
Jacob told us at the airport that he wrote the family a letter which he posted on his other blog early this morning, so we got to read a letter from our missionary as soon as we got back from the airport.  He also left his mom some flowers on the kitchen table, which where there to greet her as a surprise when we got back from the airport.  He is a very thoughtful son. We look forward to his first letter home from Mexico.
