On the same day Olivia was blessed, Seth returned home from his third semester (plus one half term) at BYU-H on the island of Oahu in the Hawaiian islands. Having graduated from high school a semester early, he will be almost a junior when he returns to college, but he will not be returning soon. While he was there, Seth received a call to serve for two years in the Tahiti Papeete Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Seth has a special feeling for serving the Lord as a missionary and a strong belief in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ being on the earth in these latter days and led by a prophet of God. He also has a special feeling for island peoples and had a great desire to be a missionary in island lands, but was very willing to serve wherever he was called, knowing that was probably a remote possibility.. He was thrilled when he opened his call and found it was to the islands of French Polynesia! About 119 islands are in the mission! Seth made good friends during his time at BYU-H, and enjoyed the delights of island living. Now he has the promise of seeing more beautiful tropical island scenery, but he will not be surfing! We do not have any pictures of him studying at school, but now he will be learning two new languages: French and Tahitian (he took Latin in high school). A whole new world of learning is waiting for Seth, and as soon as got home from BYU-H he was launching into that!
