September 2002. It was exactly after the world-rocking devastation of 9-11. Nature’s Sunshine Conference was being held in Salt Lake City that year. We had booked our flights months in advance. Then Son #2 got word that he had been accepted to serve a two-year mission for our church. He would need to report to the Missionary Training Center in Utah just two days before our NSP conference in Salt Lake City. That was serendipitous.
