A lot has happened since my mission call and It's been a wonderful adventure. Somehow it has already dwindled down to my last week before I enter the MTC! I'm very excited to finally be off, it's been a long time coming! This past week has been spent watching movies, spending time with family and packing packing packing! It's a miracle that somehow the majority of my closet was able to fit into 2 1/2 suitcases! I don't know how they expect me to pack 18 months worth of clothes into 2 suitcases plus everything else, but with a little bit of faith it all worked out! I get to spend my last couple of days in Provo visiting friends and family before my parents kick me to the curb Wednesday! I've had my mission call for 115 days and now it's 3 days away, I couldn't be more nervous but I couldn't be more excited either to finally be a missionary and teach people about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!
Today was a beautiful day! Going through the temple with my parents was amazing. I'm so grateful that the temple is a 5min drive so I can go as much as possible in the time I have left. I'm almost down to two months before I leave for Canada and today just made me all the more excited to go teach the gospel so others can experience the joy and blessings of the temple.
This is the blog I will be using and updating through out my mission. I still don't leave for a few months, but I wanted to make this early on to if this is going to work well.
I will post the link to this blog on my Facebook page. My Facebook page will be run by my mother and my sister Emily while I'm on my mission, unless my mission receives access to Facebook.
Hopefully each Monday there will be awesome new updates and pictures posted by me if time allows!
I'll also be posting on here before I leave for my mission on January 22, 2014. I'll post all the mission related stuff that happens to me before I leave.
Hope this works!
