Going To...

Got a call at work today!

#1 Got his two year mission call for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.



He's. Going. To.


Independence, Missouri

Yes were are very excited!

He leaves May 19th.

I've been crying all day, for joy. Our sweet mail man made a special trip to bring it to the house early this morning. I of course ran out and told him where he was going and gave him a big thank you when he was delivering the rest of the mail. Doesn't every one chat up the mail man?

Thanks to a son who is willing to serve his Father in Heaven. Thanks to the Lord for his tender loving care. Thanks to a co-worker who exclaimed, "No way do you have a son old enough to serve a mission."

Nurse Boys, I'm sending my baby to your neck of the woods. I hope he gets to serve in an area where he'll meet you.

"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings; that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good; that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth(!)"

P.S. I want my sons to go to South America on missions like their dad and I did, but if they were to go US, Missouri is where I would want them to go.

I sent him a congrats message on FB but not sure how often he gets on. We're so proud down here but I was hoping for a San Antonio, Tx mission call. ;) He's going to do so well! I can't even imagine how awesome that mission is. And, I'm thinking I need to become bloggy friends with the nurse boys b/c they are so popular, everyone loves them, and I must be in the "in" crowd as well. haha :)

Wonderful...one of the best things he'll ever do in his life. Congrats to your whole family !!!

EXCITING NEWS. I am sure your postie loves being the bearer of good news, it can't be fun delivering bills all day long.

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I read this and I've been telling myself I must actually log on instead of using the reader and come and say hi properly. HI. I miss all the commenting on blogs but my blog reading is still having to happen during the late night feeds :-(
