This morning we took Robert to the MTC. Can I just say that it was hard! Harder than I thought it would be!
What a special experience last night when he was set apart as a missionary by President Warner. He gave him a beautiful blessing with some amazing promises. Robert has a great work to do in Italy! He really will be a great missionary.
I feel like a small piece of my heart has been ripped out of me. But I know that he will be okay. The Lord will watch over him.
I sure love that boy. I think that I speak for Giovanni and myself when we say that we have never felt prouder as parents as we do today!
We will miss him, but wouldn't want him to be in any other place.
I have set up a blog for Robert so that family and friends can go there to follow his mission. It is on the link list...Anziano Robert Bona.
Here are a few photos from the past week.
We love you Robert! You will be in our thoughts, hearts, and prayers every day for the next 2 years!
