"Confident, happy, and ready" are the three adjectives that Christopher's cousin Joey used to describe him as he embarked on the grand adventure of his missionary service. Chris has been in Utah since Friday, Feb. 6 visiting family and friends and skiing with his dad. He had the chance to visit the Salt Lake Temple (above) with Gordon and Grandma Pat, which was very cool. Apparently, while walking around the grounds, they saw a rainbow over Salt Lake City. It was like a sign, you know, with Chris being the "Rainbow" man, and all...haha. (CCHS alumni will understand this.)
During the trip, Chris was able to reconnect with cousins and friends, have a fun pizza party, and play a game or two of Killer UNO.
On a snowy Wednesday morning, February 11th, Christopher's cousin Kayla arranged for a special lunch in the Sky Room of the Wilkinson Center. There is a great view of the mountains and BYU campus from up there. Guess what they happened to be serving? Mexican buffet! As if Chris will not be eating enough Mexican food over the next two years.
Chris arrived at the Missionary Training Center (MTC) around 1pm with Dad, and cousins Joey and Kayla. Christopher's sister Heidi has decided that MTC should really stand for "My Terrific Christopher" and we all agree.
And off he went!
