Elder Albright is HOME!!

After honorably serving a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission, Elder John Albright returned home to his family in Maryland! John's sister, Emily, who returned from the Alabama Birmingham Mission in December, is getting married next week, so there is understandably a LOT of excitement at the Albright house.
Happy Parents!

next week in the Washington DC Temple!

All the Albright kids, two years apart! The first picture was taken right before Emily and John reported to the
Missionary Training Center in June 2011. The second picture was taken exactly two years later when John returned
from two years in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission.

John's mom said John was like the Pied Piper,
walking through the airport with lots of little children
trailing behind him (his nieces and nephews!).

With his parents, all his siblings, his nieces and nephews, and lots of friends to greet him at the airport, John made quite a stir. There was another guy at the baggage claim with them, signing a few autographs. It's not everyday that rapper, Ice Cube, is out shown in popularity haha!

Now John begins the steady acclimation back into "real life." Word is that he's already getting handy with the new iPhone 5, AND he has a new set of wheels. By the end of summer, he will be back at Brigham Young University to continue his schooling. Welcome home, Elder Albright! Well done!!!
