Preparing to Go

Hello Dear Reader,
After Grandpa (Wesley) and Grandma (Mary) Carter spoke with Brother Mendenhall they were sent to the office of Dyke Walton where the building missionary program was explained and the wheels put in motion for the Carter family to depart for England.

The next few weeks were very busy. The family had to obtain passports, get vaccinations, and rent their home. Grandpa had to finish the Oakhills building, get the new Provo Stake Center started and turn its construction over to Uncle Ed and Ralph Burk. There were also other odds and ends that needed to be taken care of.

Grandpa and his brothers had invested in a geiger-counter and had staked a claim out on the west desert. Grandpa asked his brothers to please work the claim while he was gone so no one could jump it. There were also other business matters to attend to. And there were things to sort through and store or give away, clothes to buy, callings to be released from, and many, many people to say good-bye to. It was a busy time but one full of anticipation and excitement.

Were you sad, worried, excited? What did you think it would be like?
