On August 11, 2013 Sean gave his Mission Farewell talk in Church (and yes I know officially there are not supposed to be farewells anymore). He had his Young Mens leader Adam Carpenter speak with him. Both Adam and Sean gave great talks.
Hearing Sean's talk, and hearing his testimony, shows the potential he has to be a great missionary. Here he is with the missionary plaque that will hang in the church hall with those others serving from the North Field 4th Ward.
After Sacrament meeting, we had Sean's friends and family over to the house for some food, visiting and wishing Sean good luck on his mission. Below are some pictures of those who were there.
