Today is THE day that Alex enters the Missionary Training Center in Provo. Aunt Mary and Uncle Allen picked up Alex yesterday from the SLC Airport. Aunt Mary served her mission in Italy and has some amazing culinary skills. She invited another family over and they had a great big Italian meal. Alex got to take a nice walk with his "companion" after dinner. Since Alex was set apart and needs to have a companion with him at all times from that point to the end of his mission. We believe that there is safety in numbers. Missionaries always serve in companion-ships. Aunt Mary got to spend the morning with Alex. They went to the Provo Temple. And then she dropped him off at the curb of the Missionary Training Center. He will be staying here until July 16th when he leaves for Boston. How happy does he look!?!?!?
