Sounds like @rational isn't so rational. If not in school (already
graduated) then ineligible.
How come these guys aren't ever called to serve in Bakersfield, Boise, or
All of these young men mentioned are ambassadors of good will and wonderful role
models for many that they don't even know. Congratulations to them on
pursuing things of loftier goals before taking care of the earthly ones. Good
luck to you and God speed!Go Cougars!
Can't play sports unless you are enrolled in school or online school. That
is according to UHSAA handbook. Football players who graduate early have already
finished their season while they were in school.
Early graduation, friends. The same way some football players go from high
school to spring practice, or kids graduate high school with Associates Degrees.
Take actual classes instead of elective fluff.
Haws is leaving in April? How does that work?
Maybe the DNews can clarify something.TJ Haws has been called to
serve in Lyon, France and will leave on April 16. Has TJ already graduated and
is he just sticking around to go for a HS championship? I always thought HS
graduation was around the end of May. I also thought that the church said that
young men could leave after their 18th birthday if they have graduated high
school. Sounds to me like there is another story in this.
Congratulations to those young men! Missionary work is very hard and
challenging for any young person but also definitely the most rewarding. When
you're on the Lord's errand and give it your all, great things will
happen. To play a part in the hastening of the Lord's work is obviously
much more important than making the cut or even going further in the NCAA
tourney to those young men. I'm sure many don't see it that way but
kudos to those kids for recognizing what's more important. Looking forward
to see them together in the future at BYU.Go Cougars!
A mission is one experience in a young mans life that can not ever be
duplicated. I applaud these young men for taking time off to do a work that few
get to do. Good luck to all.
@AZgrandmaWhat a coincidence, my neighbors cousins little brothers teacher
has been to Rome.
Mika will be in Rome when the temple there is completed. Two of my
husband's cousins(brothers) are the project managers for the Rome Italy
Temple and Cordoba Argentine Temple.
Eric and T.J. congratulations on your mission calls! Missions are hard work,
but the two of you are used to working hard. Missions are also very
rewarding...you will love the people you serve and they will love you in turn.
Congratulations Eric and TJ. Wishing you great success in Italy and France.
Can't wait to see you in BYU uniforms in 2016-17.
