The Bird Has Landed

First thought I had when I woke up~ It feels like Christmas morning.
Today may have just been even better than Christmas. Kevin's brother Kelly, the youngest in his family, came home from a 2 year church mission in Cordoba, Argentina. He is finally home after sacrificing all that most 19 year-olds hold dear, in order to teach people about their Savior Jesus Christ.

Our first glimpse of Elder Bird:
What a happy and emotional reunion.

 Cory has prayed for Kelly EVERY DAY. He always says, "Bless Kelly on his mission and bless President Monson on his mission."
 The 5 siblings
 Is it just me, or does Cory look like his Uncle Kelly?

We were able to be there when Kelly's Stake President released him from his calling to serve as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We were able to listen to Kelly bare his testimony in Spanish, and although I did not understand the words, I felt the power of what he said. It was very special and spiritual.
