Setting Apart

Mike and I were set apart for our mission in the Canada Toronto Mission on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 by President David Litchfield.  We were given great blessings.  We will be working hard with the young elders and sisters in the mission.  We will work closely with our Mission President and his wife.  Our family will be blessed as we serve.

Present that night were:  Heather and Bryan Andrews, Melodie and Chris Krawchuk, Evan Swendsen, Carma and Leon Florence, John and Cathy Swendsen, Carole and Harlan Sundal, President David Litchfield, President Al Copithorne, and Bishop Bryce Tingle.  We were able to Skype with Barrett and Kari Swendsen and Tara Swendsen.  The wonders of technology made it possible for more of our family to witness our setting apart.

We have been called to serve in the Canada Toronto Mission for a period of 18 months.  We will be serving in the mission office.  Mike will be the Vehicle Chieftain and I will be the mission secretary.  The mission office is in Brampton, Ontario,  We leave Calgary on Friday, January 13th and will be driving to Provo.  We report to the MTC in Provo, Utah on Monday, January 16, 2017.  We finish training on Thursday, January 26, 2017.  We will leave Provo on January 27th and start the drive to Brampton - about five days.
