Argentina, Here Comes Elder Horrocks

Nathan is busy preparing for his departure the the Argentina Resistencia Mission. (Resistencia is in the northernmost pink section on the map.) He reports to the MTC in Provo on October 14. Because of General Conference and fast sunday, Nathan will be giving his farewell talk this coming Sunday, September 27. Although this seems a bit early, it will actually be wonderful to be able to focus the last couple of weeks on final preparations.

Cary and I cannot believe that 19 years have come and gone so quickly. We have always known that this day would come, but now that it has, it is too soon. We love Nathan and are so proud of his decision to serve a mission. He is a remarkable young man. We will miss him terribly, but wouldn't want him to be anywhere else.

I will do my best to keep this blog updated so that all Nate's interested family and friends can share his mission experiences with us. I will post his letters and pictures.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us raise our incredible son. We appreciate all of the family members, friends, and the parents of friends who have been such great influences on Nathan.
