Almost there

Franklin heads out September 15th. He’s ready but very nervous, hoping for a good trainer and hoping that all goes smoothly at the airport. He wrote in his latest letter about how he wonders how his family came to join the church. Ancestors were once his age making the same decisions he’s making. The parallel is so close.

One other concern of Franklin’s is his ties! Worried that they won’t hold up, he’s scrambling to trade his silk ties with other ones from around the world that foreign missionaries have carried in. “I want a Tongan or Marshallese tie for sure, but I think I might have waited too long.”

One of his last lines: “One thing I’m very blessed to see as a missionary living the way I do is that nothing in this world lasts, only us.”
