Happy 20th Birthday Nathan!!!

Nathan's 5th Birthday with his new puppy Hunter...I don't know who has the biggest feet!

Nathan holding Landon the day Landon was blessed. What a great brother he has always been!

Showing off His Big Cutthroat on his fishing trip with Dad & Grandpa to the Book Cliffs when he was three.

Playing Lacross for the Cottonwood Colts! He was the Team Captain his senior year.

Nathan and I at his Graduation. We couldn't have been prouder that day of his accomplishments! What a great student!

Here he is at the curb of the MTC ready to go and serve...this was the last time we saw him and you can tell just how happy and ready he was to go. What a great missionary he is! Only 388 more days to go until we are all together again!!!

Nathan in his first area Butteworth, Malaysia with Myra and her kids.

Serving now in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at Christine's Baptism.

Today is a day of very mixed emotions. For the last twenty years we have blessed with having Nathan in our life. We couldn't be prouder of his service to the Lord but, we miss him especially today on his Birthday! May the Lord watch over and protect him while he is in Singapore on his Visa Run and that he will return back to Kuala Lumpur safely so, that he can continue this amazing adventure he is on!

Happy Birthday Nathan you are always in our thoughts and prayers. We love you! Mom, Dad, Landon & Bridger :)
