Last night we drove up to the Independence, Missouri LDS Visitor Center so that Tyler could be set apart. This is a blessing the Stake President gives to a missionary to give them the authority to serve as a full time missionary. President Ortiz gave Tyler a wonderful blessing and we were glad to have been a part of it! We met President Ortiz there because right after setting Tyler apart he was giving a talk at the visitor center. Something cool is that President Ortiz is from the Dominican Republic, which is where I went on my mission almost 25 years ago.
After that we drove back home and finished packing, waited for Brandon to get back from his robotics tournament (which he is giving up the last day of to go on this trip) and we drove to Lincoln, Nebraska.
