Dear Sister Wilson,
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the México Mérida Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months.
You should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, September 17, 2014. You will prepare to teach the gospel in the Spanish language...
I can't really explain how I felt when I read those words.
The words that I kept saying over and over again (and I'm still saying it) was:
I didn't really have a place that I wanted to go before I opened my call
But if I could have picked for myself
That would be it.
It's so perfect for me:
I wanted to speak Spanish
And go foreign
And I love spicy food
And I didn't want to be cold all the time
And it's surrounded by Book of Mormon history.
And I cannot wait to go serve the Lord!
|I was lucky enough to have my friends and family there.|
That made it so much better. :)
|This is probably my favorite picture of the day. |
They're staring at my call so intently. :)
Or a toy... probably a toy.
|Also I didn't cry!! Be impressed.|
|Yeah, I had no idea where it was.|
Mérida here I come.
