|President Stolworthy and Elder Mikesell|
After a favorite meal Monday night from BJ's Restaurant consisting of pepperoni pizza, french fries and a chocolate chip pizookie, Justin went to the home of President Stolworthy to be set apart as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A funny story about this... Justin's little brother, Brandon, was in attendance and was deeply disturbed that Jay was no longer "a part" of our family. He drew this conclusion after the blessing by insisting that Jay was "set a part" from our family and "set apart as a missionary". Much clarification was necessary on the car ride home to convince him that Jay was very much, indeed, still "a part" of our family and what it meant to be "set apart" as a missionary... Justin is officially Elder Mikesell now!

Goodbye, Elder Mikesell! We will see you in two years! We know great things will come from you.
