MTC Drop Off Day

We took Elder Bahr to lunch at Olive Garden prior to dropping him off at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) today.  It was an emotional time, but we know that he is ready to teach those who are ready to hear about the gospel.  For those who are unaware of how MTC drop off works; you drive up, hug your missionary, take pictures, and drive away.  (Note to his friends' moms who may read this: hug your Elder lots at home because the MTC is a quick drive and drop).  He was lucky enough to be taken inside by an Elder from Washington which immediately made him more at ease.  Elder Bahr has a GREAT group of friends who have helped him and supported him through this transition.  He wishes that he could see his friends off to their missions, but he has lots of well wishes for them.

At the MTC: The host missionary was super nice and welcoming to Elder Bahr.

Walking away: see ya in 2 years Elder Bahr!

  1. I'm excited about your blog! And don't worry about not getting to help send off his friends to their missions, because he can be on the Welcoming Committee when his friends arrive back home. Go Ryan!
