Today Sam spoke in church before leaving on his mission, it was a such a special day. We had a "Farewell Dinner" at the house for family and friends. It was so nice to spend time with so many who have been a part of Sam's life throughout the years. His talk was wonderful and so was the food. All except for those darn bees! They wanted to join us! Argh! :)

Elder Barker took out his endowments at the Bountiful Temple this afternoon. His good friend Elder Williams was able to join us. He leaves in a few weeks for Manchester, England on his mission. He's been a great example to Sam. What a wonderful experience for all of us. We are so thankful for temple covenants.
