Tuesday night after Bret was set apart we came home and enjoyed our last night with him. Bret and Doug played one last chess game.
|Bret was the winner!|
Following chess we packed up Bret's Title of Liberty. He plans to have all of his companions sign it!
After he was packed up, and it was time for all of us to go to bed I heard Joey and Bret quietly talking and laughing. Just like when they were little boys in their bunk beds. Made me want to cry!
I got up early and made Bret his favorite breakfast. (Extra Bacon) Bret requested these sandwiches most mornings before seminary.
Then it was time to say goodbye to his favorite friend.
|Frost will miss Bret.|
|The long walk!|
Bret's plane to SLC was on time and he was ready to go! He said a final good bye to Joey, Jenna, Susan's husband Mike and I before going through security. Susan and Doug were able to go to the gate to see him off. Bret was very calm and didn't seem the least bit nervous. At 10:20 he arrived in SLC where Millie was waiting to take him to the MTC. Originally Bret had been scheduled to fly directly to the Guatemala CCM (MTC) but because of some visa issues he will spend some time in Provo. This gave Millie the unique opportunity to be able to drive her brother to the MTC. When they got there she said Bret was all smiles. The host Elder who came out to greet Bret asked if he could snap a few photos. As Millie and bret flung their arms around each other, the host Elder said, "Wait! She is your sister, right?" Millie said they all had a good laugh as he snapped this photo.
|Final family hug!|
If you care to write to Bret you can use dearelder.com. His mailbox/unit at the Provo MTC is 842. The mission is GUA- REU.
We are not sure how long he will be there so as soon as we get a more permanent address I will post it in the sidebar.
