Entering the Provo MTC

Elder Perry entered the Provo MTC on Wednesday, January 21st.
His address, until Feb. 11th, is:
Elder Tanner Gardner Perry
MTC Mailbox #273
PER-TRU 0211
2005 N. 900 E.
Provo, Utah 84604
Dropping off a missionary at the MTC was everything that I
had heard it would be---wonderful and torturous at the same time. We definitely sat too close to the exit door. And one should never drop off a missionary with an emotional pregnant women who is expecting twins (Tanner's older sister Nicole)--even though she was incredibly restrained --she started us all off weeping as we prepared to give Tanner hugs and loves before he walked through that EXIT door.I am finding it difficult to transition from a mother who loved being an active participant in her son's life to one who must mail packages and letters--and then WAIT for letters!!

Tanner would love to hear from you--write him at the above address.
After the 11th of February he will be in the Lima, Peru MTC for 6 weeks.

Hello to all of Tanner's friends. This is his mother, Kathryn. I wanted to keep you informed of Tanner's missionary activities while he is serving in Peru. I thought this blog would be a good way to do that. I'll share experiences that Tanner is having and post pictures that he sends our way, as well as keeping you current on his whereabouts- including addresses and emails. I'm sure he'll want to hear from all of you!!!

Tanner will be entering the MTC on January 21st. His farewell is Sunday, 18th at 9:00a.m. at the Edgemont Stake Center ( 303 West 3700 North-the church west of Will's Pit Stop).Come celebrate with us on SATURDAY, January 17th beginning at 6:30p.m. at Tanner's home 3174 N. Cottonwood Lane.
