Homecoming Report & Celebration

Elder King came over on Saturday and stayed the night with Braxton. These two are such good friends and had such a great time together on their missions. Braxton took Brandon to Kamp Kaboom.

Braxton reported today about his mission. His topic was "The influence of the Holy Ghost in our lives". He did a wonderful job. He shared some neat experiences that happened on his mission. The Holy Ghost is a wonderful gift and will guide us and protect us if we will just listen. The primary answers are what we need to concentrate on.....praying and reading our scriptures. When we do those things we will be more in tune to the spirit and be able to recognize the promptings.

Braxton had a lot of support from our wonderful family and dear friends. The church was full. We really do have great families and friends. (some of our friends that always support us are: The Coys (and kids)~they really are family, the Rodees, the Hardys, the Toomers, the Jones, the Hunters, the Monsons, the Miles, the Hodsons, and the Baileys) We sure are blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives!
We had a celebration at our house afterwards. It's always fun to be able to visit with those we care about and love. It was a bit cold and instead of setting the tables up outside we put them in our dirty garage. John and LaDawn Hunters little grandson went out there and was excited as he looked around at all the stuff and said...."this is awesome". I loved it and I'm glad I was there to hear it. So, it was awesome to have the tables in our garage...dirty as it was.
Braxton had a lot of visiting to do. He ate a few hours later. Actually Braxton hasn't ate that much since he has gotten home. He forgets. (I don't understand)
A bunch of Braxton's friends came by to celebrate too. Braxton has great friends. Even the ones that got married or are engaged least those that were good friends. It was so fun having them over again. They kept coming throughout the night.

Elder King and Elder Cook were there too. I think it is great how great friendships are developed on missions.

So after today....I believe Braxton's mission is wrapped up and that door closes. Now on to many more doors and opportunities...

Braxton you served a great mission. Your testimony is so much stronger and you have learned many good and important lessons, It was nice to hear that you got along with all your comps and that you have no regrets. You were the kind of missionary that your mom thought you were. Good Job!
