Well, he’s off! Jeremiah flew out from Sacramento early today, leaving behind a tearful family. Happy tears, we call them.
He was greeted in Salt Lake City by his Grandma and Grandpa Brown and his Aunts Estela, Sabrina and Caisa and Uncle Adrian. They had breakfast at IHOP, then headed down to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT where he will be taught what mission life is all about.
This photo was texted to me (Heather) by an unknown sender shortly after he arrived. I later learned it was from a lady who had just sent out a missionary son a few months earlier. She knew what it was like to want to know that your son had made it safely and was kind enough to provide that for me. It was such a kind gesture!
