Ian's Setting Apart to be a Missionary May 26th, 2015
with President Zemp and Bishop Alleman

Sending him off at the Phoenix Airport May 27th, 2015

He met a couple missionaries that were going to the same mission

Ian called to say he arrived safely in Salt Lake City, UT later that morning. He was laughing and already having a good time with other missionaries. He said there were a lot of missionaries from all over waiting for the shuttle to the MTC in Provo, UT.

He is off!! Ian will be serving his mission in the Florida Tallahassee Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and will be returning May 2017. We will be updating this blog weekly as he writes home and sends pictures of his experiences in Florida. He reported May 27th and will be in the Provo MTC for 10 days before arriving to his mission field in Tallahassee. His addresses are to the right of this page for mailing purposes. He would love to hear from all of you! As he serves in different areas the address will change so be sure to stay updated with where he is at.(If you are ever unsure, please contact Kristy for the latest address). He received tremendous support from all of his extended family and friends while he was preparing to serve and we are very grateful for that, and we know he will be forever grateful. Elder Baldwin will be an amazing missionary and we know that he will touch many lives with his great personality and character. See you in 2 Elder!
