After checking in, we had a little time for one last group picture before we began saying good-bye to our missionary.
Goodbyes are always the worst. But after a few rounds of hugs, kisses and tears, Elder Mangum was on his way.
Prior to flying to Argentina, Michael will spend the next 6 weeks in a Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo, UT. Lucky for us, Michael has a couple aunts, uncles and cousins who live in Utah and were super excited to pick him up at the airport and spoil him with big hellos and a fun dinner before he reported to the MTC the next day.
