Sister Annelise Record was set apart as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Tuesday, 22 July by President Steven Hill of the Maple Mountain Stake. This picture was taken right after she was set apart.
This morning Sister Record spent the time packing and getting ready. Our dog, "Poppy", seemed to know something was up and followed Sister Record around the house all day yesterday and today. Upstairs or downstairs, he followed. She got her bags packed and ready to go and just waited for while until it was time to leave. She got all her stuff into two suitcases. She only has one additional carry on bag.
Next we set out for lunch at Chuck-A-Rama in Provo. The boys really love that place, and Sister Record ate for free.
This picture was taken at the Provo Utah Temple, just east of the MTC. It was pretty hot. We happened to see Rebecca Rowley there and enjoyed saying good-bye to her too.
We arrived at the MTC and unpacked her bags. Hugs good-bye and a loving send off. May God watch over her and keep her safe as she serves Him.
Finally, she is off with her host. Her host will guide her through her first day at the MTC. It will be such an amazing, life changing experience for her.
