He is prepared. He is all of the other Boy Scout qualities too! He is the Lord's missionary. We pulled into the MTC and a host approached the car and said, "You have about one minute to say goodbye." All four of us jumped out, got the suitcases out, he hugged his mom and dad for the last time for two years, grabbed a suitcase (the host grabbed the other), and off he went, never looking back. He was SO excited to get this thing started!
I heard the host ask, "Where you going, Elder?" He said, "Korea Seoul South." All business. The eight year old who asked me to speak at his baptism is now an eighteen year old missionary!
He did say, "Love you, Aunty Jo," as he strode right past me toward the MTC. Love him.
