The moment finally arrived. Griffin reported at the MTC at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, June 30, 2010. Rather than the departure meeting we all attended when Mason began his mission to Bulgaria, missionaries are now simply "dropped off" at the curb. We found it to be a much less painful experience and it lasted less than five minutes.
Because MTC policy is no picture taking during drop off, we stopped by the Provo Temple to take a few final pictures.
