Last Wednesday, my sister entered The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, MTC (Missionary Training Center). She will be there for 3 weeks before going to her area, which is Salt Lake City, Temple Square.
I still can't believe my "baby" sister is on a mission. Where has the time gone? She was just 5...and now..21?! It was such a sweet experience to see her so happy to be starting a 18 month dream/goal she had. The twinkle in her eye and the grin on her face continued until we said goodbye (it was described as a "band aid" effect...ouch it was)! Being with my family did help with the sting (and maybe going to Brick Oven Pizza..hehe).
Her work began quickly and with no time to spare.
Training for 3 weeks and then off to share,
for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints,
a message for all to hear.
Now she is "Green," a newbie, as they say,
Full of love for the gospel...to be talked about everyday.
Her desire, motivation, and love for the Lord,
Inspired her in every way!
My tribute to a beautiful, and sweet sister. How proud and grateful I am to have her example in my life. I Love you Alexis.
