Amazing how soon your little ones grow up and have their own little ones. My youngest son Jeff who will be 27 in Dec is a very serious, dedicated and faithful young man who served a two year mission for our church in Japan. Married to Rachel also a returned missionary who served in Alaska they are expecting a baby girl in December. Jeff was ordained as a High Priest in our church today. What an unexpected blessing. He will be responsible for temple work and genealogy in his ward working with the older men. (Photo above of new Draper Utah temple.) In his patriarchal blessing he was told that he would help "set in order the affairs of the church" but this new calling was a surprise to us all but an inspired decision by his leaders who appreciate his enthusiastic service to the church.
It was delightful to have so many of my FAMILY together today to celebrate this milestone in Jeff's life. His in laws and brother in law were there as well as his brother Dan, sister in law Tina and their children. I am so pleased and proud to be his mother. He will carry on the family legacy of genealogy. (Here's some photos taken at church and the party afterwards at Dan's home-he's the one in the apron with the camera below.) We CONNECTED!
A day to remember always...(l-r: me, Jeff and Rachel)
