The GREAT and DREADFUL day ( :
It was August 20tu at 1:15pm in Provo Utah.
That was the GREAT and DREADFUL day when Elder Lohberg entered the Provo MTC leaving behind the life he once knew to embrace a new life serving as a full time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A day that was long awaited with much anticipation by not only him but those who know and love him. It was GREAT day as Elder Lohberg embarked in the service of God, yet a DREADFUL day as we his family had to turn him over to the Lord - entrusting him to HIS care, knowing full well that the young man we were sending off would not be returning the same. He will return a man. He will grow up these next 2 years as he serves the people in Costa Rica. You could say it was the best of times it was the worst of times. Yep. That pretty much sums it up. We had Aaron's "last meal" at In-N-Out Burger (YUM!) and then drove to the MTC. You get a total of 2 1/2 minutes to unload your luggage and say your goodbyes. We did it in like 30 seconds and then Aaron turned and head off as Elder Lohberg.
