Grandma and Grandpa Easton, Grandma and Grandpa Schlappi, Mike and Easton Family toured the Provo Missionary Training Center Expansion on August 11th. Tender feelings/emotions were felt as my thoughts turned to Ridge/Costa Rica. Missing Ridge…Mom
“Hello Elder Easton….Your angel mother got tickets for the family to tour the new MTC (two 6-story buildings add the old MTC your knew….The huge windows looking out at the mountains, big rooms the can hold large groups of missionaries listening to the visiting general authorities and other guest speakers. More class room and misc. absolutely wonderful for the many many missionaries. The many missionaries that are presently in the MTC were serving as ushers to the many visiting these new facilities. How wonderful our church leaders have made this available for the public to be a part of. Mike joined us and afterward guess where we went?????Brick Oven Pizza….awesome. That very day your darling (used to be little sister) got her drivers license. Pretty amazing! She’s so beautiful but not only that as sweet as ever. It’s so fun to watch her develops and matures into such a beautiful, graceful, precious daughter of God. Love That Girl! Love this quote I found from Elder Neal A Maxwell…..”We tend to think of consecration only as yielding up, when divinely directed, our material possessions. But ultimate consecration is the yielding up of oneself to God.” Let me close with this quote….from President Hinckley…”I love the priesthood of this Church. It is a vital, living thing. It is the very heart and strength of this work. It is the power and authority by which God, our Eternal Father, accomplishes His work in the earth.” Have a good week…Be Happy, Love your Work….smile. We love you! Grandma and Grandpa Schlappi (Remember your pioneer ancestors, those that have gone before, their sacrifices, their Faith, and love of the gospel!) We are so blessed!!!!
Afterwards we hit Brick Oven for Pizza, Pasta and Salad. Friday Night Family Fun!!
