"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Hello Friends and Family:
Our son was set apart last night as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our Stake President, Bishop of the Single's Ward and his father were in the circle to bestow this great honor and blessing upon him. From this point on and for the next two years, he will be called "Elder Molnar" by all.
We pulled up curbside at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, at 1:15 pm MST today. There, we were greeted by senior missionaries to turn Elder Molnar over from the care of his parents into the hollow of His hands.
Elder Molnar will spend the next two months learning Tagalog, and preparing himself for the mission field where he will serve until his return in July, 2014. He will sacrifice much, leaving behind his family, friends, all his worldly goods, putting his education on hold, and forgetting himself. He will focus on serving the Lord and the great people of the Philippines, Quezon City North Mission, with all his might, mind and strength.
We would like to express our sincere love and appreciation to our family, especially those in Utah and those recently visited in California, who have shown Christlike love and support.
Our thanks also to great leaders in the Church and Seminary teachers who have assisted us in teaching him Gospel principles, and being amazing examples of solid family values.
To Elder Molnar's friends, we thank you. We know that he could not have done this without you. What an incredible bond of brotherhood you all have, and what amazing parents to have raised such wonderful young men. To you all, GO FORTH AND SERVE, AND RETURN WITH HONOR!
We love you,
