This one, our foster son (#8),

got his mission call.

Spokane, Washington!

Woo Hoo!

We're all proud of him, Adorable Hubby and I, his Mom, and many friends and acquaintances.

He'll be serving a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints teaching about Jesus Christ, eternal families, the Bible, Book of Mormon and joyful living. He'll also serve in the local community and hopefully get to put his first language, American Sign Language, to good use.

Way to go #8!

Congrats #8!
Two missionaries out! I guess that's what you get with a house of boys.

I'm going to need a job when my start heading out.

Good for him! I have family out there on the military bases. If he's ever around there, let me know and maybe they can make him dinner:)

That is awesome! When does he leave? Washington is a great place to spread the gospel!

That is awesome! That's where my husband served.

We are so proud of you #8. So happy to have you be part of our family. :)

I hadn't thought about the sign language thing, that will be great!

Cool! My in-laws live in Kettle Falls, a bit over an hour North of there, so if he ever serves in the Collville ward he will meet them! My father in law is the Bishop there currently.

YAY... another one on his mission! So excited for him! You know, if you keep this up, you're going to be empty nesters before you know it! Ok, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I take it back....stop the sniffling (or partying).
