After completing a mini series in the Philippines, recording an OPM and and international album, it's bye-bye for David Archuleta as he finally starts his Mormon mission.
As a proper goodbye for his fans, he uploaded a final video blog (VLOG) entitled, "It's not Goodbye". Two years is a long time but David really appreciates all the messages from fans, especially those that were very understanding of his decision to be away for two years as part of his duties as a devout Mormon.
"It's a decision everyone knows about but it's a very personal thing and I wanted to keep it that way. So I hope you guys respect that, and you guys have so I appreciate that."
Archie admits that he has gone through a very emotional week, spending some quality time with family, friends and neighbors before he leaves for an undisclosed location in South America.
David is still going to keep in touch while doing the mission with his once a week Internet privileges. But it may be limited.
All the fans can do is wait until he comes back. True enough, they will be waiting and hoping for another visit in the Philippines too.
