|A green light going into the MTC (8/21/13)|
|Curbside drop off at the MTC. A very happy Ashlyn!|
A beautiful Sister Missionary met us as our car pulled up to the curb. (She had Chinese or Japanese on her name tag and we never asked where she was going, unfortunately.) She welcomed us to the MTC and as the bags were unloaded, she asked who each person in our car was & where Ashlyn was going to serve. She was so very kind & gentle & her spirit was a calming influence on all of our nervous stomachs. Ashlyn gave each us a big hug. Jeremy told Ash to give me (the teary mom) an extra hug. Ashlyn grabbed one of her 50+ lb. suitcases, the Sister missionary took the other 50+ lb. suitcase & they walked away, chatting the whole time. We watched Ashlyn for as long as we could, in the sea of missionaries. And she never looked back.
