Entering the MTC

After a weekend of fun and emotions, Monday came way too fast and Ralynne had some packing to get done. It took a little longer than anticipated but we were glad to have a little extra time with her. She headed out with mom and dad late in the afternoon. She was due at the MTC on Wednesday, so luckily she had another day to get some last-minute things done. On Wednesday she met up with her cousin, Jaime, and made a very important last stop at Cafe Rio to savor one last chicken salad. When she arrived at the MTC she was greeted by a group of handsome young missionaries who were her personal escorts and bell hops. Here's what Mom said:
Sister Ralynne Riggs is officially a full-time missionary as of 1:50 pm, Wednesday June 20th! She is probably the light of the MTC by now with all her enthusiasm and bubbly excitement. She greeted the elders who welcomed her to the MTC and helped her with her luggage...which was not light by the way...with confidence and her usual flair! She had them at "Hello, I'm Sister Riggs!"
We look forward to hearing all about her adventures at the MTC. Go get 'em Sister Riggs!
