Eric Heaton was set apart today by President David T. Warner. Tim, Judy, Sara, Jack, Eric, Emily, and Ben Heaton and Ethan Ozment were present. President Warner blessed Eric to be a successful missionary and that his efforts to share the gospel would not be hindered by the language. He was blessed to open like a flower to the sun. He will now stand alone and there will be no impediment to who he is. His life is to be now focused on the gospel, the mantle is his; it is bestowed upon him. After his mission he was blessed with a felling of coming home. He was blessed against feelings of homesickness.
We look forward to hearing from Eric as he enters the MTC and then onto the mission field.
