It official! Elder Jones is in the MTC and will be there for aprox. 9 weeks before he heads to the Czech Prauge Mission. I can't believe that he made it. I am filled with so many emotions right now I needed to get them out. I am so proud of my little(okay maybe not so little) brother for the choices he has made this past year to change his life around and serve the Lord. There was a time that I didn't think he would ever serve but I know that through the prayers and fasting of those that love him he felt the spirit and knew what he had to do. I am grateful for Erica for the influence that her testimony and friendship had on him. I will be forever grateful that she came into his life. I am grateful for the Temple and the comfort that can be founf in its sacred walls. Last spring I went to the temple with Chris' family as they did the work for an uncle that has passed away, I was just going as a support and for no other reason. While in the temple a prayer was said that asked to bless the missionaries of the church and I was overcome with a feeling that Kein would be okay in his troubles at the time and that one day he would be out serving. I ignored it at first tinking yeah right he does't even go to church right now, but the feeling came again this time even stronger that kevin would serve and that I needed to stop worrying about him. I believed it that time and a few weeks later my mom said that kevin was moving home to sort some stuff out, then I founf out that he would be able to participate in Coopers blessing. Then He went off to BYU-Idaho and a week or so into it started his mission papers Now he is In the MTC. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church I know the Book of Mormon is true and the words we read are a blessing to us from Prophets of the past. I love my Brother so much and I pray that he will be able to serve the Lord with his whole heart. I already miss him but I know that he is soing the right thing and we will be blessed as we support him and continue to chose the right in our own lives.

I feel much better being able to get that out. If you would like to write to Kevin you can find his addresses on his blog. there is a link on the right side of mine KEVINS MISSION BLOG. I know that he would enjoy letters from family and friends.
