Spring has Sprung!

This is my favorite tree in our front yard. So beautiful in the spring!
 I know warmer weather is just around the corner when I see this tree in full bloom! Love it!

Missionary update

We received a letter from Austin's Mission President today with this picture of Elder Passey with President and Sister Yue-Sang Chan.

Austin is serving in the Sha Tin district. His first companion is Elder Wu, who is from New Zealand.

He's Off!

Well, the time finally came for Elder Passey to leave the MTC...much to his delight! Steve always flies out to Vegas on Mondays on the 8:30 am flight and usually when I am dropping him off we see bus loads of missionaries being dropped off, too. We knew that the chances of Steve seeing Austin were pretty good and sure enough, they found each other.Austin looks great! He was so surprised to see his Dad. Steve gave him his cell phone to use to call me. I'd like to think that the big smile on his face in the picture below is because he is talking to his Mom!
He called again from LA. They had met up with a woman and her little son who were going all the way to Hong Kong with them. She was a member of the Church, too so she had taken them under her wing which they all thought was great! They also talked to a Catholic man on the plane from SLC to LA and asked him to read the Book of Mormon. They certainly aren't wasting any time!!
