Congratulations, Colby!

That brought tears to my eyes! You'll be able to spend time with him at the airport before he leaves to go to the MTC. Much better than dropping off at the Provo MTC and waving goodbye at the curb!

Good luck to all of you! Congratulations Colby (Elder)

What a great blessing. We are excited and proud and you will still have a lot of time to help convert many people in our ward before you go. The people of Brazil will be so blessed as you go with a humble heart and testimony.

Colby Chambers said...

Thanks for the congrats everyone! I can't wait to serve the lord for two years and I know its the right thing for me to do. I can't wait to learn the culture of the people in Brazil and bring happiness into many life's! I have prepared my whole life to be the best missionary I can be and I have worked so hard to be the person I am today. If anyone wants to make me some Brazilian food or teach me a little Portuguese and about Brazil that would be pretty sick :) ha ha. Thanks again everyone for your support and knowledge that I have got from you my whole life pretty much I love you all and Tenha um bom dia!
