Welcome Home Elder Belnap

Djaevlen means "Devil" hahaha

Despite of all that has happened and is happening right now, and the events that are turing our world upside-down...there is a bright light shining today.

My brother, Devin, will arrive home today from his 2 year mission in Denmark. He flies into the Pocatello, Idaho airport at 6:00pm.

I am so excited to talk to him, I can hardly stand it. He is one of those people that makes friends with anyone in about 2 seconds. He is so outgoing and so incredibly friendly. His friends have been calling my mom non-stop all month to see when he will be home. And he has A TON of friends. I seriously think 1/2 the town is going to be there at the airport to welcome him home. Devin's positive outlook on life and his never-ending energy are so contagious. We have missed him so much the past two years. He is just so fun to be around. You always walk away from Devin feeling refreshed and uplifted. He knows how to make you feel good. He is just so nice. He served a faithful mission and worked as hard as he could. He touched a lot of lives. I know he will miss it there and he will be missed as well. I can't wait to see him in two weeks, it seems like forever.

I am so homesick today. I don't even know if homesick can describe it. My mind is in Idaho at the moment, and will probably be there the rest of the day. I wish I could be there holding up some dorky sign and bawling my eyes out as he steps off the plane. But we will be there soon enough. Until then....

WELCOME HOME ELDER BELNAP, WE LOVE YOU!!!!! (and we can't wait to have some serious tube wars, poke your food, and blow some things up when we get there)

I felt the same way when Drew came home. I wasn't there and wanted to be so badly. I cried too. Maybe he'll come visit you!
