It was a privilege and an honor to walk with over 30 missionaries currently serving a full-time.mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Cache Valley.
I told everyone the parade started at 10 a.m. and to be there at 9:45 a.m. to line up when, in fact, it started at noon. I had to admit my mistake and ask the missionaries for forgiveness. Even when I told them they could “hit me first and then forgive me”, no one took me up on the offer and they were extremely gracious and kind!
The parade route was crowded all along the way and as we walked it was fun to hear and see the crowd react with loud cheers, clapping, rising to their feet, while others yelled out, “There’s the missionaries”. It was inspiring to watch the missionaries giving out “high fives”, hugs and vigorous handshakes.
We live in a special place with wonderful people who are will to help and serve in every way possible.
It's truly been a privilege to be a part of this great cause.
We Love You! David & Mary
