Today the Elder officially joined the army of God. We dropped the Elder off at the MTC and it sucked! The flu bug hit the MTC hard--17 Elders down and only 5 beds--so we got the phone call that we were only allowed to drop off and basically get out! The MTC was being quarantined so there was no devotional, no long goodbyes--which maybe was a good thing, no watching the old school video, and no one but missionaries even allowed to touch the MTC grounds! Did I mention it sucked! Well the Elder was sooo excited and smiled the whole time while we wallowed in our tears. Devyn was in primary children's ER last night from swallowing two coins--that's a post in itself--I'm just so grateful she was good to go before Vini entered the MTC and we were able to be there. I couldn't stop thinking of my brother today but I came across these pictures and they put a big smile on my face. I LOVE YOU Elder Purcell!
