At 5 am Utah time, Elder Hale and hs Band Of Brothers (MTC Batch) and other wonderful missionaries boarded the "Night Bus" to Manilla...He officially has left the Cauayan Mission but not the Philippines. Oh my goodness I am so emotional and cannot imagine how they all feel... I am so happy he is with those he started this journey with (except for Elder Farley, who bravely went first 2 weeks ago .. They will ALL travel now, overnight to their destination 10 -12 hours away... As I work through my day Elder Hale will be moving further away from the place he called home for some 2 years..This is heart wrenching. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is true, and ALL of it's truths can be found through the message of Missionary work of The Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. and it is only moments like this that you can feel the power and the glory of God's Plan for us.. Pure Joy and Happiness will abound as we can truly say "I have trusted and obeyed." I am so thankful for this knowledge that came to me via the LDS Missionary Program.
