Yahoo! The big day has finally arrived!

June 28, 2010

We are really finally here. Our cute sister Pam ran us around getting our last minute errands completed and then took us to the MTC. (Note Ed showing his missionary socks.)

Here we have Ed showing the distance between Greece and the Congo....

And here we have Kriss and Ed doing the traditional MTC picture... and being excited to be going to the Congo!

This photo is of Ed trying to lift and weigh Kriss's 70 pound suitcase... before he carried it upstairs to our 2nd floor bedroom.

And now we are ready to check out our room.....

TA DA! A great room with our own bathroom! The paper I am holding is our immunization record. I can't believe how many shots we have had... and now they want us both to have 3 more. But that's ok. We don't want to get sick over there.

We had a great day being introduced to the other couples who are here for the week. There are 36 of us. 80% are going stateside. We are the only Africans, so we are getting lots of questions. We are looking forward to a great week!


  1. Oh this is just so exciting! I can't believe this day really is finally here!! I just really think it's so crazy that you guys are in the MTC finally and doing what you have always talked about. Love you mom and dad so much and I'm so proud of you.

  2. You two are so cute!!! I love the socks dad! I can't believe you are really there. It seems so...not real. It really hasn't sunk in to me yet that you are leaving. I love you so much and I am so proud of you. Have fun!
