Hey everyone it's Taylor and from now on I'll be updating Elder Diaz's blog.
On Monday August 5th Aaron was able to attend a farewell gathering in his home ward prior to him being officially set apart as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After this Aaron become Elder Diaz. He was able to return to the church to say goodbye to everyone and enjoy the delicious food prepared by members of the ward. Elder Diaz would like to thank all of his friends and family who were able to attend, it meant a lot to him to see you all before he left.
The next morning we all loaded up in the truck and made the drive to Utah where we spent the night in Salt Lake before taking Elder Diaz to the Missionary Training Center in Provo. It was a quick goodbye filled with laughter (and some tears), but Elder Diaz was more than ready to go out to share the gospel with the wonderful people of Denver, Colorado. He walked away with a huge smile on his face and we could all see the spirit in him as he proudly made his way into the MTC to start his journey as a missionary.
This blog will be updated as often as I hear from Elder Diaz. He would love to hear from everyone! Please keep Elder Diaz and his family in your prayers!
Elder Diaz ready to enter the MTC after saying goodbye to his family! He will be an amazing missionary!
