Called to Serve - Dec 2, 2017 - Jan 10, 2018

Rebecca received her mission call on Friday, December 2, 2017. It was an exciting day, and we met as family and friends to watch her open her mission call. She was called to serve in the California Rancho Cucamonga Mission and reported to the Provo MTC on Wednesday, January 8, 2017. It was a busy 5 1/2 weeks, finding clothes, shoes, sweaters, and the list goes on....

With so little time to get ready, her "farewell testimony" was on Sunday, January 8, 2017, which also happened to be Fast and Testimony Meeting. The bishop had her give a "special testimony" and then they opened it up for ward members to bear their testimonies. It was a wonderful meeting, and so tender to hear Rebecca's testimony. Many family and friends came over to our house to greet her and wish her well. Rochelle took some amazing photos of Rebecca and our family!

Preston and Rebecca are best friends!!!

Rebecca was set apart by Pres. Almquist on Monday evening, January 9th. What an amazing experience. He asked each of us to give her counsel about serving as a missionary, and many of us bore testimonies also. She also gave a pure and tender testimony. Rebecca is ready to serve the Lord! It was a beautiful setting apart and wonderful blessing!
