Being Set Apart as a Full-time Missionary

A member of the Stake Presidency (President Jim Gardner) and our bishop came over to our house at 8:00 pm. We had invited grandparents to be here with us as Hannah was set apart as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We first went around the room and gave Hannah advice or shared our feelings and thoughts about her and her decision to serve a mission. This was a very special and emotional time for everyone. Then, the priesthood holders put their hands on her head and President Gardner set her apart and gave her a blessing. When he was done she was no longer 'Hannah, the individual', she is now 'Sister Galli', a representative of Jesus Christ and His church here upon the earth. It was a really neat experience.
