The Drive to Take Paul to the MTC!

It was a big day. From this point forward, I (Elder Bezas' mom) will be posting as I receive information from my awesome son. :0)

We left this morning around 7 a.m. to make the drive to Provo, Utah. The Lord blessed us with clear roads as we'd been worried about the projected snow flurries for today. But they never came and the trip was perfect. We had fun on the way down and I interviewed Paul. Here are a few of the questions I asked him, along with his responses. Have fun getting to know him a bit better!
