The Drop-off

The delivery of Sis. McRae to the Mission Training Center was definitley a bitter-sweet one; bitter in that we were only given what seemed like 30 seconds to say goodbye to our beloved sister and daughter for a year and a half, but sweet because we know she is going to do SO well in the MTC and in the mission field. It was definitely a hard and unforgettable day. If anyone would like to write to Sis. McRae while she is in the MTC, here is her address:

The "Farewell"

This post is being made by Emily herself. Feel privledged. It won't happen again.

Today Emily gave her talk in church with what seemed like a hundred of her closest friends and family. The support she had while giving her talk was amazing. There was such a great spirit in the room. Emily worked hard to make sure her talk was put together well and in the end she felt like everyone benefited from it.
Later at the house the people that came to support her made her feel like this tough decision to serve a mission may have just been worth it. Emily has never been close to her family but in recent years she feels that has changed drastically. Especially recently the support she has received from her family has given her a great sense of love and appreciation for her family. She is so glad to have that kind of love in her life.
Emily would like to just thank everyone so much for being there to support and for the advice given to help her through what is sure to be a difficult time in her life. Worth it, but very diffuclt.
