On a Mission

He has left on his mission.  And I already miss him.  A lot.  During the several days of his sendoff, we've been busy.  Last Friday (6/19) was his party, Saturday was our family picture day and Sunday was his church "farewell" service during which he gave his lauga (spiritual talk).   Wednesday (6/24), we dropped him off at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Provo.  In a couple of weeks, he'll leave for his assigned mission.

It was just last year our son (the last of our children) came home from his mission, and now the new/next generation (grandchildren) of missionaries starts with Kalobe.  A trailblazer. A pioneer.  A forerunner.

Some pictures from these last few days/weeks.
