Moving Forward

Sunday TJ was ordained an Elder! What a neat day. We invited family up, and everyone came! What amazing support. TJ is the oldest boy cousin to 11 future missionaries! ( think there is pressure to set a good example or what? sheez!) Family is very important to TJ, so I was so thankful he could see that he is important to them too! Bishop said some very touching things and Rich did a wonderful job with the blessing.
A mission is right around the corner, we have some work to do still, but he is moving in the right direction! FORWARD! I am so proud of him. He has been through some "stuff" that not a lot of kids know about, and is going to be stronger because of it.
I love ya TJ~ way to go!

Congrats TJ!! Can't wait to see where else you're going besides forward....will it be Russia, Italy, Japan, or Casper Wyoming?!! Either way....you'll be a great missionary! Keep up the good work....and attending Mission Prep! :) Sorry for the shameless plug!

What a wonderful experience for all! He has 11 lucky cousins to have him to look up to! Just keep moving forward and pretty soon you'll be right where you need to be! Lots of love!
