We have had such a wonderful, spiritual time helping him to prepare for this incredible journey he is now embarking on as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He was so nervous these past few days but the moment we arrived on the MTC campus his face was beaming and he could not wait to get started.
Chase has a kind heart, an even temperament and a deep love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. We know that he has prepared himself thoroughly for the mission field but there is so much more that he will learn in the next 24-months that will truly bless his life forever.
We can't wait to hear from Chase. We are looking forward to his first communication. We will post his updates here just like we have for Kingston. Our sincere love and appreciation to all of you who have made it possible for Chase to fulfill this lifelong dream of serving a full-time mission. May our Father in Heaven bless you for your kindness and love.
Alofa tele, aloha nui loa and xie-xie
