Farewell Elder Lee!

This week has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster and its only Wednesday! Justin's farewell was on Sunday and it was an amazing day! Justin gave a great talk on the restoration of the Preisthood. His testimony was so strong and he did such a great job. Afterwards we were able to gather with amazing family and fabulous friends to celebrate. We are so thankful to everyone who came and supported Justin on that special day. We know it meant the world to him to have everyone there. We appreciate everyone's love and support! Last night Justin was set apart as a missionary. He bore his testimony to everyone and the spirit in the room was very strong. Today, we as a family were able to take Justin to the MTC. Having only taken a missionary to the airport this was a new experience for all of us. We met in Provo, had lunch and were able to say our goodbye's at the Provo temple. The temple grounds were packed with people getting ready to drop off their missionaries and you could feel the excitement in the air. As we pulled up to the MTC without a second thought he jumped out of the car, grabbed his luggage and a quick picture and walked away without looking back. We are so proud of Justin and his decision to serve. We look forward to the new and exciting things ahead for Elder Lee. We appreciate all of you and your love and support of him! Justin would love to hear from you and if you would like to write him, his email address and mailing address are posted here on the blog.
