On July 24, 2013, the family met at the Salt Lake City airport to say goodbye to Poo. While the mission that lay ahead of him was calling and saying hello to Elder Martinez. He would leave on a flight with another elder who would meet him at the airport, and the two would fly to Georgia. There they would meet a couple other missionaries and the group would fly to Manchester, England. Missionaries would be there to pick them up and drive them to the Preston England, MTC. Anthony was so excited, he couldn't wait for the flight to take off.
