The Farewell - 9 Sept 2012

Though a little nervous this morning, Jacob arose early bearing that confident mantle that seems to overcome him every time he is about to do something remarkable.

He and his dad journeyed very early to LuDean Barnes' house to haul the unbelievable amount of food she had prepared for the luncheon. Between being blessed by LuDean as party planner and the beautiful setting of Bill & Margo's "secret garden", sprinkled with additional "tasty creations" from Grandma Kirk, Aunt Wendi, Aunt Margo, Polly Spencer, Derrilee Thomas and others . . . surely there has never been a mission luncheon of such beauty and magnitude!

Jacob's talk in sacrament meeting was truly after the manner by which he does everything. . . with all his heart.  I overheard someone saying, "When you see the Bishop and the Stake President wiping their eyes, you know it's a good talk."

There are many more photos taken that day, but they will wait for another time, so please check back!
