And she's off. . . . .
Bryan and I dropped Amber off at the Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, August 29th. She is now Sister Allison for the next 18 months. As you can see she was happy and smiling. What you don't see is all the tearful goodbyes which came the weeks before. It was hard saying goodbye to all her work associates, friends, and especially family, but she is excited for what's to come.
The goodbye at the MTC was like a bandaid being yanked off. It was so quick that I didn't have time to break down. I was on the verge, so it's a good thing. We will hear from her when she has a preparation day which will occur weekly, but I don't know yet which day. Thanks to all of you who have influenced her for good over the years. She's awesome and will be a great missionary!
