Just weeks before Chase received his mission call, our family moved to Gilbert after living in Mesa for Chase’s entire life. Chase decided that he wanted to leave for his mission from our Mesa ward so he left his records there. Today, we had the opportunity to go back to the Highland Ward as Chase was advanced to the office of an Elder and received the authority of the Melchizedek Priesthood from his father.
A few of Chase’s leaders (Bishop Anderson, Brother Willis and Brother LeSueur), Brother Hiatt from the Stake and our rowdy little family were able to hear the sweet blessing that Jason gave to Chase as he received the Priesthood. Each day we become a few steps closer to Chase’s leave date. We are so proud of him and the choices he is making. Today was a sweet moment for our family.
