Dres was set apart by President Dan Frei last night. This morning we drove the whole family to Provo, ate at Cafe Zupas and walked around the temple. We then met Navy Dalton and his family at the Creamery and set off for the MTC drop off. It was really hard to say goodbye. We've dreamt of Dres serving a mission his whole life, but didn't want to see him leave. We are going to miss him like crazy, but are excited to watch him grow as he serves the people of France, Luxembourg, and Belgium.
I'll be in charge of updating this post, and try to post Elder Empey's letters and pictures weekly. Thank you all family and friends for your support and love to Elder Empey and our family!
