I got my mission call!!! I have been waiting for this practically my whole life. I will be serving from November 2013 to May 2015.
Little by little, and sometimes through big experiences, I have to come to know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true, and Heavenly Father loves me. I set goals for myself while I was young that would lead me to a mission. I came to know that I am a daughter of God. I came to know that God has not stopped speaking to His children, and that He speaks to me personally. I know and love these truths!
I am happy to announce I am called to serve. I have been waiting for this day for so long. I have prayed and felt that it is right. I am called to serve a mission! I am called to SERVE!! Chihuahua, Mexico, here I come!!!!
You can watch my ridiculous opening of my mission call here (if you insist):
Seriously. It's embarrassing. But the good news is--my niece Emma will fit in my suitcase and will pass the 50 pound weight limit!
