Called to Serve

Seth received his call to serve in the Iowa Des Moines (Spanish Speaking) Mission on Friday June 8th, 2012.  He received his Endowment shortly thereafter at the Las Vegas, Nevada Temple on Saturday June 16th, 2012.   He also was able to visit multiple temples before heading into the MTC, including Las Vegas, NV, St. George, UT, Mount Timpanogos, UT, Provo, UT, and Salt Lake City, UT.

During the summer he enjoyed hanging out with friends and family, and working with President Tanner and the Dave Francis Law Firm.

Elder Seth McGinn was surrounded by friends and family to wish him farewell at an open house.  Tons of people came to show their support.

First, they made a pit stop to Mr. Mac.
Trying on the 3 in 1 coat to keep him nice and warm in Iowa.

Next, they visited the Conference Center and the Salt Lake Temple.

This is on the roof of the Conference Center.  Pretty fitting right!

Putting on the "Missionary Mom" pin.

Of course, had to stop at J Dawg's for his last meal before the MTC to get a polish dog with everything and an Apple Beer.

Visiting the Provo, Utah temple.

Last walk with dad before heading into the Missionary Training Center.

Elder Seth McGinn was able to be greeted by one of his best friends, Elder Dallas Teshima, as he arrived at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. 

We look forward to many more photos and hearing from Elder McGinn through many of his letters over the next two years.
