Elder Andrew Pulsipher has left to begin serving his mission. He flew out a week ago and landed in Salt Lake City, Utah. His twin sister Lauren and her husband Travis picked him up at the airport and drove to Provo where they met his other sister Nicole. They went to lunch at Tucanno's before dropping him off curb side at the MTC ( Missionary Training Center) He will be learning a new language along with many other missionary training. In 8-10 weeks he will fly to Jakarta, Indonesia to love the serve the people there.
Let the packing begin
With some of the boy cousins. Look at the excitement of his little brother Tyler. What a good example he is to him and to the rest of the boys.
The neighborhood kids came to say goodbye. They wanted Andrew to give each of them his old skate shoes while they gave him personal items as well, a hat and key chain. Chris the boy on the left gave Andrew his hat. Andrew told him that he wouldn't be able to wear it but he still wanted him to take it so that he would remember him. Chris wore that hat every day for years. Even though they didn't completely understand his decision to serve a mission for 2 years they do love and support him.
We waited for the plane to leave.
Tyler wanted to wear a white shirt and tie like his brother. The sun's coming up.
