Dee became an official missionary on September 15th. Whoo hoo!!!Again, another surreal and yet wonderful experience for a parent! President Leavitt shared some scriptural insight that he feels is valuable for missionaries from the book of Jacob in the Book of Mormon that is referred to as the "Allegory of the Olive Tree". Then she was set apart as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by President Leavitt and with the loving hands of her Grandpa Alan, Brothers Crosby and Millett (from our bishopric- Bishop Leavitt was out of town), and several great (literally and figuratively) uncles upon her head. The Spirit could be felt so strongly that it filled the room with love and joy that penetrated every heart present! It was awesome!!! Then, of course, we had to take more pictures!
