Over the weekend, we had a chance to go to Gilbert and see my brothers "un-farewell". I call it that because now instead of devoting a whole Sacrament meeting to the missionary and his family, they just have the future missionary speak and the rest of the meeting is the same. Probably a good idea. My mom said that she made sure when they called her about the bulletin, that they would spell his last name right, and not list him as "Youth Speaker".. So as we sat in our pew and opened up the bulliten it said "Youth Speaker-- Ryan Weimer". He! He!
My brother spoke about ways that we can prepare for a mission and it was a WONDERFUL talk. Some people were commenting that they had never heard him speak so much as two words and then, this!--- a wonderful, eliquent speaker stands at the podium. It was a Latterday Miracle!!! He!!! He!! We all knew he had it in him, hiding under his "cool exterior".
Tomorrow my parents will drop him off in Provo at the MTC where he will study Spanish for two months or so and then off to Washington DC to spread La Gospel. We are soooooooooooo proud of him!!!!!
