We leave in about 10 hours to Provo to drop Ben off at the MTC. President Manwaring and Bishop Landers came to our house and President Manwaring set Ben apart as a full-time missionary. It was a wonderful, powerful blessing with great promises and blessings. We are going to miss Benjamin, but know that he is doing what he has prepared for and wants to do with all his heart. So we'll take some pictures tomorrow. Apparently they give you about a minute, literally, to drop him off with his luggage. We will undoubtedly stop somewhere and say our goodbyes. There will be lots of tears, but we feel peaceful and know he is in God's hands.
