To the MTC!

Yesterday, McKay and I had the privilege of dropping my brother off at the Missionary Training Center (MTC). I don't think I can describe how excited he was to start this adventure. The next two years are sure to be amazing.


On the phone with his family in China.

Ready to serve.

Brett and me. I'm going to miss this kid.

Brett's niece wore a Cavaliers bib in his honor.

My husband with the new missionary!

He's ready! (For the record: his favorite color is green.)

And he's off...

We're so excited for Brett- from now on Elder Whitney!- as he goes forth to serve the Lord. I look forward to hearing from him and updating you all with pictures and stories. I encourage you all to write to him as often as you can. I know I will.
