TYLER WILLDEN, 18, will be our first grandchild to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He is the oldest child and only son of Rick and Cherillyn Willden (our oldest daughter). Tyler will leave his home, friends and family in Chandler, Arizona, next Tuesday, November 4. He will fly to Colombia, where he will report to the Mission Training Center. He will spend six to eight weeks in total language immersion, as he learns to speak fluent Spanish. He will then serve in the BOLIVIA COCHABAMBA MISSION for two years. We are very proud of you, Tyler, and wish you the very best experiences of your life so far! We hope you include us on your email list. Here are two huge Brazilian abraços from Grandma and Grandpa Thomas!!!!
