Called to Serve...
This girl has been called to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Jacksonville, Florida mission! So excited for the opportunity she has to share the gospel and her talents with those waiting for her. She is going to be a great missionary, and will touch the lives of those she serves. I can't wait for this adventure and am proud of her. You will be awesome Sister K!
On a side note, this conniving sister, would have kept this a secret until she received her mission call, but she needed some insurance information to fill out the application. She told me on Mother's day when I asked, "anything I need to know about" "I am going on a mission," she said in her sweet little voice. So she finished her papers, did physicals, and dental, and met with her Bishop and Stake president one last time, and things were submitted.
We hoped for her call to arrive on Wednesday. Her roommates did. We hoped again for Thursday, nope. We were sure it would arrive on Friday June 14, and it did...that was a long 3days of waiting. Now we just have to get her ready to go. She will enter the MTC on the same day as her cousin Challis who will be serving in Columbus Ohio. B's cousin Austin will be serving in the Macon, Georgia mission which borders her mission. About a third of her mission is in Georgia.
Congrats Sister K!
