my brother is 19. today we said goodbye for 2 years so that he can serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. the reason that he's doing this is so awesome to me- knowing Christ has helped him and now he has the chance to help others learn about Him. missionary work isn't about converting people to the Church so that the Church grows and is glorified, it's about helping people find Christ. i love my brother and i'm proud of him. he is so good.. not in an irritating or brainwashed way, but he is solid through to his core and even putting religion aside, he is one of the best kids i know. whatever you may think about the LDS Church, i challenge you to find a better group of 19 year old boys anywhere other than the MTC (missionary training center). it can't be done.
we said goodbye and then he walked away without looking back. he was so confident and happy. i think he grew up about 5 years in that 20 yard walk. he's not a boy anymore.
