Entering the MTC
On Wednesday, March 9th, Elder Parady entered the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. It was for sure bitter-sweet saying goodbye to him. I was happy that as we drove up and pulled at the curbside that a missionary opened my door as if to say "come on mom, you can get out and hug your son again." And I did just that, hugged him, told him I was so happy for him, and said farewell. I was very impressed how organized the whole "drop off" was. The missionary said to me as I got back in the car, "don't worry, we'll take good care of him." "I know you will," I said with a smile... and no tears! I tried hard not to cry. And there he goes!
