" ordain evangelical ministers." (D&C 107:39)

It's official! Last night we had the remarkable opportunity of being in the office of an Apostle, Elder Dallin H. Oaks who, along with Elder Whitney Clayton, set us apart for our mission. It was really tender to have our entire family there (...except for Madison, Tagg and Zach :<) and to be taught by Elder Oaks. Among other things he told us that our mission and Perth, Australia are the two missions in the church that are the furthest from church headquarters (...obviously so we can do as little damage as possible!!!) He also spoke of his high regard for the peoples of South Africa. He marveled at their "...dignity and grace..." and confirmed that we are going to a very special place. We completed our evening with a visit to the temple and dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (...Miso Salmon...unreal).

We attended the temple as a family after the setting apart. It's a sweet memory we will hold forever ; having everyone together in such a sacred place.
