Elder Harward departs for the Ghana, Cape Coast Mission!

And he's off! Yesterday we said goodbye to the youngest member of our family, as he boarded a plane for Ghana, Africa. Kendall Harward- now Elder Harward has been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Ghana Cape Coast Mission.

 While there, Elder Harward will be inviting others to come unto Christ by helping them receive his restored gospel, through faith, repentance,baptism, the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end. Elder Harward has as a strong testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ. In his farewell talk on Sunday, he spoke of the love he had for Heavenly father and his son Jesus Christ. He spoke of how we must center our testimonies upon his gospel and his atonement. He spoke his love and testimony of the scriptures and his family. We are grateful for all who attended to support Kendall on his last Sunday here in the states.

 Before he left on Wednesday afternoon, we were blessed to attend the temple together as a family. In the Church of Jesus Christ, we build temples. Temples are holy and sacred places where we can worship and learn more about God's plan for us. We learn especially about the great blessing that families can be together forever in the temple.
