And So It Begins...

September 27, 2011
Kimberly Allen was set apart as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by  (R to L) President Nobel, 
 Stake President,     Assisted by Lance Allen, father,   Kirtis Kennard & Bradley Mills, brothers-in-law

Also in attendance were:  (L to R)
Kari , sister;  Kelly , sister;  Kim;   Kathy , mother;  Maurine , grandmother;  Kenna , sister

Wednesday, September 28, 2011 was a bitterweet day!  After a brief "Good-bye" at the park across the street...a few tears and a lot of hugs and kisses....we all piled into the car and drove into the MTC.
When we got there we were assigned a number on the sidewalk to drive to....Open the door, missionaries surrounded the car...ask:  "Where's your luggage?"...Got girl and off they went.....
The Elders reassured her that she didn't have to carry a thing....Our last good-bye was more of a drive-by.
Of course she walked off all excited and happy while the parents were left in rubble....
Kimberly will be a fantastic missionary.  The words of King Benjamin seem to ring in our ears, "When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God."  And what better service can there be than share your testimony of Jesus Christ with the world.  Bahala Na!!
We love you Kimberly!  We'll always be with you!!!
