Saying Good Bye

Elder Ashcroft left for his mission on Wednesday Sept 16, 2015 at 7:30 AM from the St. George Municipal Airport. He had a few connecting flights but landed at the England MTC on Thursday September 17, 2015.

A few quotes from Addison on his way to the airport that morning.

"What if President Hinckley faked his own death and is a lunch lady at the MTC."
"Do you think Easy Eddie would fly first class."
"You know what? I am going to feel real sad for all those ladies that can't date me for two year."

Also in true Addison fashion he forgot his wallet at home. One wake up call later, to his Aunt and Uncle, it was rushed over from Hurricane and TSA ran it to him in time for the plane doors to close.

He was traveling with another Elder and Sister missionary from the area. When they got to Denver there was a nice man that gave them his cell phone to use so they could call home. So, thankful to that good Samaritan to help ease family worries.

We got out first, very short, email the very next morning.

Hey I just got to the MTC. It is pretty awesome! There's a lot of Elders from around England and they love American accents. I got my name tags and they are pretty cool but the Elders that have Greek ones are even cooler.

We are so proud of our missionary and the choice he has made to serve our Father in Heaven.
