Jon's Mission Farewell

Jon gave a wonderful talk today at his mission farewell.  He is so ready and excited to serve his mission and to serve it in El Salvador.  Emma and Emily performed a musical number, "Armies of Helaman" while Zac accompanied them on the piano.  Everything was wonderful!

Jon got to baptize and confirm Emma for the dead today at the Draper Temple.  He just needed a little practice before he leaves to go to El Salvador to preach the gospel!!
