Goodbye Utah! See you in 2...

Elder Larsen Brooks & Elder Jacob Higginson on departure day at the Salt Lake International Airport.

This morning, Jacob flew out from the Salt Lake International Airport  to Washington, where he will spend the next 2 years.  I got a phone call from him just before he boarded his plane, which completely made my day!  He sounds amazing...so happy...so much more mature than he was two "long" weeks ago!  I miss him...but I wouldn't take the experiences he is going have over the next couple of years away from him for anything! 
A good friend of Jacob & Nairn, Larsen Brooks, was also flying out this morning to Italy!  His dad, Michael Brooks, was at the airport and got a great shot of these to amazing young men.  What a great looking pair!  Good luck, boys!  We couldn't be more proud of you both!

  1. It was the most exciting phone call ever! I was at work and was so surprised to hear Jacob's voice. He sounded so happy and was so excited to start this new adventure. So neat that he was able to see Larson Brooks at the airport. What a great pic of these two handsome missionaries! We miss you Jake, so proud of you! Love you!
