Ohio Prophecy

Three years ago our family went to Ohio to visit the Layton clan East of the Rocky Mountains. It was in the middle of our Church History Trip. That was a great time! While we were there, Brysha had Chris and Sean pose under these signs. They were at a time in their lives when they knew they were serving and were preparing to serve, but the time seemed to be far off in the future.

Now Sean is only about three weeks from beginning his mission that will bring him to Lima, Peru, and Chris is close to being ready to submit his paperwork to receive his call.

I'm assuming that Elder Road heads South. Perhaps Brysha can confirm that for us. But it must head South since that's the closest path to Peru. But if that's true, where does Elder Lane (Chris) head? Canada? Michigan? Can you imagine if Chris went to Michigan and came home a Wolverine? Could the Ohio-Layton family survive that? Or would Steve be forced to reconcile Chris to his yellow and blue basement?

Well...it's probably going to be Canada for Chris. But in the event that he is called somewhere else, my disclaimer is simply that Elder Lane leads to another road somewhere!

I'm sorry for everyone that had to read that. I barely understood the complexity of this post.

Update! I checked Google Earth and it turns out that Elder Road heads off to the West...but a couple of blocks down the road it takes a turn. Guess where? It turns due South, continues South into 188, and then continues to merge on Highways/Freeways that head - you guessed it - South! Pretty Cool!

In response to Sean's comment, I'd like to say that if he lived in Ohio, he'd understand much better.
