On Monday, my birthday no less, I had to say goodbye to a dear friend. Marcus Shepherd left for his mission early Tuesday morning (but I said goodbye on Monday). He is serving in the Brazil Belem Mission and will be gone for two whole years!! For the past two or three months we have been together almost every day. I really got to know him, and now he's gone. I will of course write him often, and definitely hope he does the same. I will miss Marcus but of course I am very excited for him. I know he's where he should be and I know he will be a great missionary!
