And We're Off!

Last night Derek was set apart as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He's ready.

 Missionary haircut

Missionary shirts, washed and ready to pack


Grandma and Grandpa came down for his setting apart.

Love these boys!

He will be watched over and protected because he is on the Lord's errand. Derek is His representative. 

We will just miss having him around. A lot.


  1. Luke just got to CA last Saturday..June 2nd...he is supposed to be in Brazil but due to visa problems...he'll spend some time in Bret's neck of the woods.
    Good luck to Derek...and to all the missionaries serving with him.
    We love you guys...take care.
    Love, Teri & Greg

  2. Tear 'em up Derek! Take their lunch money! Uncle Mike

  3. I am so excited. I'm really looking forward to two years of hearing all about Derek's experiences. You are going to give us weekly summaries of his letters I hope.
