The Farewell

Austin spoke in sacrament on the Sunday before he left for the MTC.  He also sang "A Window to His Love" with his friend Caroline as a part of the meeting.  (His first ever music solo!)  He was a little anxious and got up to speak before it was his turn :)  Austin spoke about member missionary work and indicated that it was important to be an example and not afraid of who you are.  He said that something as simple as wearing a CTR ring can turn into a missionary moment if we are open to sharing with others.

Family and friends gathered after the meeting to celebrate and say goodbye.
