Amid the celebrations and traditions of this time of year, we take a break for a most special young man, and a tradition of righteousness....Cody's great friend Taylor Roberts opened his mission call tonight. He was found wearing some silly lense-less glasses. The Robert's home was bulging with family and friends all so excited to find out where Taylor would be called to serve the Lord. Of course there was Peng Hua, a young man who joined the church after meeting Taylor on the High School basketball team. He just returned from his first semester at BYU Idaho with Taylor as well....great young man!The Olivas sisters were there as beautiful as ever, Rebecca and Bionca!Bishop Rowe came to support this young man, who is also his basketball playing buddy!Good friend Aaron McCammon, fellow ward member and BYU Idaho bud. After a sweet prayer by Taylor's grandpa, and a few emotional words of thanks by his dad, Brother Ed... he even thanked Cody and our friend Trevor Westover who are out there serving now! Then we listened to a tearful and sweet reading of a call to serve the Lord and the people of Leon, Mexico!
A big hug from Taylor one to Taylor two! They have been dating for a few years, and Taylor Behrens has been a great girl to support Taylor's choices to be where he is today!
As we said our goodbyes, I saw the old bishopric, and told the guys to turn around for a photo op...We sure miss seeing you all regularly!
Congratulations Taylor! Now you and Cody will be speaking Spanish to each other in a few years! Pretty Cool!! Go Forward with Faith!
