To track the wanderings of Elder Bubba, I have set-up a Bubba Blog. Visit anytime at http://www.elderericgarlock.blogspot.com/ The 3 Garlock elders--Nate, Chris, and Eric--arrived at the MTC on July 28th, and we are all anxiously awaiting news and pictures. That jibberish on the blog header is Russian for Called to Serve---how do you learn to read that?! The gift of tongues will surely be needed! .
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."-Marjorie Hinckley
