The First Day

Thank you all for coming on Sunday. What a great crowd! Taylor certainly felt loved--he truly appreciates each of you for your love and concern. It is always wonderful to see so many friends. Thank you!

Today we took Taylor to the MTC in Provo. He was supposed to head straight to Brazil yesterday, but his visa had not arrived, so he was off to Provo. That's okay. He'll have wonderful experiences there.
His address is:

Elder Taylor Cotton Richardson
MTC Mailbox # 360
BRA-RIB 0427
2005 N 900 E
Provo, UT 84604-1793

Taylor was very ready and excited to go. He's planned for this mission for 19 years--yes, even as a newborn! When he was 3 months old, his grandparents left for their first mission together (first of four). And then the other set of grandparents when on a mission, too. He's had cousins and aunts and uncles serve missions all over the world, so being a missionary is in his blood!

Tuesday night we had his final interview with the Stake President and then was set apart as a full-time missionary. What a wonderful blessing and sweet experience.

Thank you to all of his friends for being his friends. You have been good examples and helped him stay on this missionary path. Thank you!
