Larry's nephew, Dustin is going on a mission. He will be serving in the Florida, Tallahassee Mission and reports to the MTC next Wednesday.
Last week he and his parents flew to Los Angeles so he could receive his endowment in the Los Angeles Temple. His mother, Robin's family are mostly in So. Cal. and she wanted them to be able to participate. His dad's and Larry's parents flew in from Utah also. The session was small for a Saturday morning, only about 50 people. We were about half of that.
Whenever the Perkins and Jex family get together I can't help but think about how extended my family is. Growing up in the Church is like growing up in a small town where everybody knows everybody and we're all related.
Robin's dad, Bob was my bishop when I was in my mid-twenties. Her mom, Nancy was my visiting teaching companion during the same time period. Her sister, Karen is married to Steve Adams. His dad, Lloyd was my bishop when I was a teen-ager and Steve was in the very first Primary class that I taught.
My week-end and more friends and family in the next post.
