Last week of MTC

We didn't get a letter today from Elder Cannon, but we got an early morning phone call from the airport as he was preparing to fly to North Carolina.

He was excited to be heading to the mission field again.  He said the last day at the MTC was a challenging one for him.  He was in charge of conducting and teaching his district about revelation through the Book of Mormon.  After doing that he was surprised when he was asked to speak in the Sacrament Meeting.  He wasn't really prepared since he had spent so much time preparing for his other meeting.  He was asked to speak about enduring to the end.  He said he shared the example of his Grandma Robinette taking care of Grandpa.

This morning he left the MTC at 3:30 a.m. and was traveling with 5 elders and 7 sisters to Charlotte.  We look forward to hearing from him next week.

We did get an email from his mission this morning that said they prefer postal mail and packages go directly to the apartment he is living in rather than the mission home.  However, they said they recommend you don't send packages the week before transfers in case he is moved.  We will keep you updated when we receive that information.

Here are a few pictures from his last few days at the MTC.
