Here is our first letter from Austen, his final facebook status before he flew off bright and early this morning:
Is done with Facebook for two years! I am off tonight to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, or the Mormon Church, in Montréal Québec. Don't worry though, My sister will be posting a link to a blog she is doing for me, so you can all stay updated! Thank you so much, and I'll see you in two years!
And just so it doesn't get lost; here is Kaden's facebook status from today, the day he left:
My brother leaving has been kinda surreal up to this point. For any of you who may not know my brother has been called to serve a mission to Montreal Canada for two whole years serving for the lds church. He's been set apart, so he won't be able to see this for two years. Two years is a long time. I'll write you all the time. Keep you updated on my lady situations(if I ever have any), how the car is doing, and on all the little children our siblings are bound to have. I wish you all things good, good luck, be smart, and stay alive. I love you, Kaden :)
Good luck Auzzie! See you in a couple! We love you!
