Sam Set Apart as a Full-Time Missionary

Tuesday night at 7:00 pm we went to the Grovecreek Stake Center for Sam to get set apart as an official missionary. We had a nice visit with President Gleason for a few minutes where he offered some advice and shared some personal experiences. In the president's office there is a giant white board hanging on the wall that is organized by ward and displays the photographs of all the missionaries out "in the field" and the number "71" written in the center. Down at the bottom of the white board were the photographs of those "with calls" and the number "7". Sam got to move his photo from the "with calls" to the "in the field" part of the board, then erase and change the numbers from "71" to "72" and "7" to "6". Very next photo in line to be moved from "with calls" to "in the field"? ........ Hilary's! How cool is that!
