Today at about 1:15 pm, Kim entered the MTC to begin an eighteen month LDS mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the France, Paris Mission.
What a wonderful privilege it has been to be with her as she has prepared for this mission. A few months ago, Kimberly had no intention of serving a mission, but through a number of very significant noncoincidental experiences and answers to prayers, she is on her way to serving the Lord and the people of France.
Over the next eighteen months, Kim has asked that we post her letters and pictures to keep friends and loved ones updated on how things are going. So we'll do our best and hope you enjoy the ride with us in sharing this wonderful experience with Kimberly.
In addition and as a side note, we would like to thank everyone who has had such a profound impact upon Kim and the rest of us in the family. We are so honored and blessed to have such a wonderful, supportive and loving extended family and friends. Thank you so very much. Words are inadequate in expressing our love and gratitude to you.
