Dallin's Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

I am Dallin's mom and I have decided to make a blog of his mission, a sort of journal if you will...

Anyway... here goes...

My husband served his mission in Austria from Aug 1975 - Aug 1977. Brad was blessed to be born under the covenant (meaning his parents were members of the church and had been sealed in the temple. Therefore they, and their children born to them, would be sealed as a family throughout all of eternity, if they live worthy). Thank goodness for missionaries that served in Plainview, Texas, my parents heard about the gospel and were baptized and then sealed for eternity too! Brad and I met at BYU and we were sealed in the St. George temple. Ever since our first son was born we have prayed that our boys would have the desire to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When we taught them to pray that is one thing that we taught them to say in their prayers... We realize how blessed we are to know that families can be together forever!!! AND, how blessed we are to know of the atonement, so that we can repent and return home to our Father in Heaven!!! So, we want our boys to go and serve and teach others of the great plan of Salvation so that they too can partake of these wonderful blessings too!

We are very happy that Dallin has chosen to go and serve the Lord! Dallin is the fourth of our five sons. Here is a picture of him with his 4 bothers shortly before he left!
