We said our final goodbye to this guy tonight. He flies out tomorrow morning to the Mexico MTC before heading to the New York, New York South mission, (Spanish speaking) in a couple weeks.
Its never fun or easy saying goodbye to these nephews we’ve sent out. But it will be a fairly easy transition for our kids who have prayed for Paxton every night for two years – they’ll continue to pray and switch the name to Smith! And now his parents and family are already used to writing letters every week so they can continue with their routine as well. I suppose there are a couple of perks having back-to-back missionaries.
Smith is going to do great work and we’re excited to hear about his experiences.
See you in two, Elder Pothier.
