Marcus finally went on his mission. After 6 weeks of buying shoes, shirts pants, passports, immunizations, dentist appoint, doctor's appointment and packing, it was time to go!!! On October 12th, Marcus reported to the Provo Missionary Training Center. He will be there until December and then he will fly to Madagascar to serve his mission.
Even though he didn't want one, we had a farewell party for him. His parents and sister Michelle flew down to be with him his last week here and sent him off.
It was bitter-sweet. We knew and felt it was time but it was hard to say goodbye for 2 years. Bye Marcus, I hope you will grow to love giant spiders, no electricity and eclectic foods. Word of advice...don't ask what you are eating. Just smile, say thank you and swallow it like a good little missionary!
