The Night Before...
Tonight was a great experience to sit with the family and have out Stake President come into our home to set Katherine apart as a missionary. Mom was hiding upstairs so no one saw her cry. Having five girls I don't think my mom was ever really planning on having to send out a missionary. I suppose she always knew there was a possibility, but the reality hit hard today. Paul being the amazing Brother/Son-in-Law that he is sat and told mom stories to comfort her, and then a bunch of funny ones to the family while we waited for Kat and President Rossell to finish their final interview. We as a family sending someone out for the first time had a few questions answered, and once all were answered President Rossell, Dad, and Paul set Katherine apart as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints to serve as a full time missionary in Brazil, Brasilia.
Katherine and mom are finishing last minute packing and paperwork right now but Katherine just told me she will post something before bed. Good luck Sister Wardle
