Saying goodbye to friends and getting ready to go



 I was sad to see I forgot to take pictures of all who came to Bracken's open house. He has lots more friends and loved ones who came by to see him before he left including:
Elise made this sign for Bracken's open house
The Nidays, Doyles, Stroups, Georges, Solomons, Lowes, Montgomerys, Lees (drove down from Jacksonville), Holtoms, Wallaces, Hutchinsons, Mckinneys, the Deyos, Kirk Stokes, Nancy Fleming and Jon Sullivan. Bracken was so excited to see you all and a BIG Thank You for coming!!

Last Twistee Treat (6th trip in a week) with the Cooksons
The Smithsons came from Cincinnati! 


Surprise party from his Band friends!


Bracken's Farewell Sunday at Church
With us and Bishop Damewood, Jace Cookson and Andrew Opificus (Picture taken right after he got set apart as a missionary by President Shill)
He received big hugs from the Correas, the Baird-Dolans, and the Keoppel's and many more. Bracken was honored and noticed all of his Seminary teachers where there to hear him speak in church. Bracken spoke on how preparing for his mission strengthened his relationship with Jesus Christ.
Garrett Lowe, Ian Allison, Elder Reyes also spoke on the Atonement and Brother Boyd and Brother Correa performed a muscial number. There was not a dry eye in the room.

 Learning packing tricks from the master!
I think he has enough ties! Said no missionary EVER!
