I have recieved my mission call! I recieved it on Nov. 5th, the day after my birthday! I have been called to serve in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission. I report to the MTC Feb.10th! I am really excited. I know some might want to hear the story, so here it goes:
I decided pretty swiftly that i wanted/need to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The day after i decided to go, i go the swine flu, so that gave me a LOT of free time. I got my papers done in FIVE days (which it ususally takes like two months to do...I'm just awesome that way) I got my call a week and a half later. A bunch of friends came over, and my sister's family and i web cammed with the parents so they could see me open it. Everyone told me that i COULD NOT read ahead! And i said, "I'll try my hardest not too, but i'm not making any promises!" And i did read aheadn, WHOOPS! I read it and i couldn't speeak. I became emotional and had an instant confirmation that that is where the Lord needed me. So i choked out the words, and there you go! I think i cried for the next two hours whenever i told anyone! The following are some pictures from me opening it....I am all red and splotchy from the tears, so excuse the mess! if you want my mission address, let me know and i will get it to you!
Looking at all the ugly clothes i get to wear for 18 months......
