These are a few things that have happened lately in preparation for Joseph's mission:
1. Dec. 2009, Ordained an Elder
2. Dec. 23, 2009 entered the temple to receive his endowment.
3. Feb. 7, 2010, set apart as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In addition, Joseph has had to get his passport andt police clearance, get immunizations, and buy his clothing and luggage. He has also been attending the "Missionary Preparation" class offered by the church. We leave tomorrow to take him to the Missionary Training Center!
