Elder Jordan Hanni

The Deed is done..Elder Jordan Hanni entered the MTC today May 18th at 1:00pm!! I don't think anyone has any idea how proud of him I am!!! These last two days with him have been awesome. He is one AMAZING young man who will be one STELLAR Missionary. The people of the Tucson Arizona Mission are so lucky to have him!! I will surely miss him!! Surprisingly enough Jordan seemed very calm and collected..not nervous at all..more excited!! This boy is ready to Serve the Lord!! I can't wait to get his first email to see how things are going.. I am already curious as to how the first hour went!! I LOVE YOU Jordan..See ya in Two Years!!

I know there are many pictures...I don't care..I want the family to see the whole day..

Too bad the last two days have felt like Washington weather..very rainy..little, if none at all, sun!!

Had to take him to one last meal before he entered the MTC...He chose JDawgs..fitting!! It is Delicious!!

Jordan in front of the MTC field, hopefully the weather gets nice so he can get some exercise..the MTC is the building in the background!

The nicest man offered to take our picture in the rain..he had just dropped his son off at the MTC he was going to El Salvador!! We also saw him jumping out of his van to take other families pictures, cuz this was apparently the spot to take them!! What a great act of service..I see many blessings in his future!

You can tell how great the weather was! You can barely see the mountains. I love the Provo temple!! I am sure he will be able to go there once or twice!!

So apparently we did not get the memo that the MTC sign that everyone takes their picture in front of was gone!! That would be why everyone was taking pictures bY the field and temple.

If the sign was there it would say MISSIONARY TRAINING CENTER!!

On the way to drop him off we were driving through the MTC..they did not see our sticker indicating that we had a they were sending us through..all the way through..luckily ang asked a guy who had us just pull into the parking lot..then two elders came to help us!! One was from Arizona and he was excited for Jordan!!

Jord taking his bags out of the trunk!!

Ang attempting to help..put a stop to that real quick..she has a hurt back doesn't need to hurt it anymore!!

That nice elder was actually covering mE with the umbrella while Jordan unloaded. Then I stepped away to get him shaking his hand. He is the one from Arizona!!

One last look before he left!!

After Hugs and No Tears!! The Elders took our Elder into the MTC!!

Ready to be a Missionary!! Go Luck Elder Hanni!!

PS...I will in no way shape or form lie to you, I really wanted to scream............


Fun with Jordan...

The couple days with spent with our missionary were full of last minutes errands, games and good food!! We have to fill him up before he hit the MTC!! We took him to Tucanos which he instantly fell in love with and went into a food coma!! He also loves his In and Out burger and Angela made us some homemade Cafe Rio!! Needless to say the boy did not go Hungry..An old missionary that served in Seattle came over and took him Texas Road House!! He played with the kiddos!! Most importantly Jordan and I were able to go to Mt. Timpanogos Temple to do a session....Best part of his trip!!

This is Jordan outside the Temple..too bad the weather is just like Washington!!

Jordan and I after the session...look at all the pretty tulips!!

Jordan apparently did not get much sleep before he flew in...that boy can sleep anywhere!

I know it is a little blurry, but this picture cracked me up...Gotta love the jumping pictures!!

Elder Hanni Arrives is Utah

Jordan flew in Monday, so we had a couple of days with him before he entered the MTC!! We were so excited!! We made this great sign, then got to the airport to see a million people waiting for a million missionaries to come home..the just happen to be on Jordan's flight!!
