Set Apart

Nathan's last day as a "civilian" was very busy, with cleaning out the jeep Ethan had let him use, purchasing and packing the last few items, eating his last few meals out with Jessica. Finally, he put on his suit, went to Jessica's for their last goodbye, and met us at church to be set apart. The setting apart of a full time missionary is a very sacred, special blessing, performed by President Martin, our stake president. He says a prayer which officially makes you a full time missionary. Then, he pronounces a special blessing, as the Spirit dictates. It was very sacred: a message from our Heavenly Father to Nathan. It was especially wonderful to have Ethan, Cameo and Kayty be able to share it. (Amber had become ill so Doran wasn't able to be there.)
