My Heart is in Provo!

Today was the day that our grandson, Marc, entered the MTC. I'm not sure how many times I can say that we are so proud of him, what he's doing, and that he's worthy to serve, but I've just said it again. It's also wonderful to have the oldest grandchild set an example for his siblings and cousins. He always has and always will. So go forth and serve, Anziano Blocker, and know that we love you and that our prayers will be with you continually. Prepare well in the MTC and be obedient, and your mission will be a success!

I love this quote by Elder Russell M. Nelson that was on the MTC website.
"As the work expands at a rate that many have described as 'unbelievable,' we should recall a remarkable admonition give by the Lord through the Prophet Joseph Smith on 11 September 1831 to the elders of the Church assembled at the Morley Farm near Kirtland, Ohio. There the Master simply said: 'Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.'" (D&C 64:33)

To end a quiet evening by myself, because Elder L and the Office Elders are on a loooong road trip, the STL's from the two New Orleans Zones dropped in for a visit after their day of meetings in Baton Rouge. How lucky can I be?
