Our farewell to Elder Ben Adamson this morning at Salt Lake Int'l Airport

Well... the day has finally arrived...all too quickly. Ben has had many wonderful days of sweet goodbyes from all his friends and family. This has taken place in person--over the phone and internet--and with cards--expressing your heart felt love and concern. This is a bitter-sweet moment for us. We are sad to see him go...but happy knowing how he will grow. 

Today the two female clerks at the airport who assisted Elder Adamson were very sweet to him.  They reminded him to write home often and wished him well on his mission.  He was reminded to stick close to his mom until they had to part. I'll bet they were the mothers of missionaries. 

We left him in God's hands for the next two years and are excited for the GREAT work he will do by being about his Fathers business. 

A special thanks to all of you who have had a hand in Ben's becoming.... It is a tender mercy for Ben to serve with his good friend Dallin Farrell. His family has been a great support to Ben. 

These two new Elders have been great companions this past year! As we have come to learn...there are no coincidences in the Gospel...these two Elders will bless our brothers and sisters in Spain. 

We anxiously await hearing about Elder Adamson's experiences. We will keep you posted....
