And now he is off to Gilbert AZ. He called me from the airport to reassure me that he had packed everything well and was doing fine. He also said that he was excited and happy to finally go to his field of labor. Goodbye, Elder Mitchell Bailey! Bike long and Prosper!

Bike Long and Prosper in Gilbert Arizona, Elder Bailey!
Elder Mitchell Alan Bailey was called to the Gilbert Arizona Mission and was to report to the MTC on July 9th, 2014. More than thirty of his family members came to hear his farewell talk in Sacrament Meeting on June 29th. He gave a wonderful talk on "Being My Brother's Keeper" which made his mother cry, and then we all sang "I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go, Dear Lord." After Church, we gathered to have refreshments and this cake. The wish is inscribed on his cake along with the Arizona Flag: "Bike Long and Prosper, Elder Bailey!" He will certainly be biking long and hard on his mission.
