Dropping off Shea--oops Elder Smart--at the MTC was difficult, but we wouldn't have it any other way. He will undoubtedly be a great missionary. We are so proud of him and know that he will do well. His first letter was upbeat. He has a great companion and was made District Leader. I look forward to his letters from North Carolina, after he has had a chance to work with investigators and bear testimony of the restored gospel--his testimony will really blossom then. l

Two very proud parents and most handsome and worthy son!
