Four days until my cousin, Elder Blaine Chadwick, returns from his mission. He has been serving in the Denver Colorado South mission - spanish speaking. Sixty-four days until my friend from high school, Elder Michael Hanson, returns from the Philippines Bacalod mission. I cannot believe how fast two years goes by (in retrospect of course). I am very proud of Elder Chadwick for his decision to serve and for doing so with excitement and dedication. Elder Hanson has overcome many trials during his mission and I hold him in the greatest respect. I have seen how serving a mission not only blesses the life of the missionary, but also the lives of the family members they left at home. I cannot think of a greater life experience I could ask for my brother to have. It is my hope that Nelson will choose to serve a mission and dedicate his life to serve the Lord for two years.
