I then opened my call. My heart was literally in my throat, and I felt like I couldn't breathe, but I could not WAIT ANY LONGER to open up that giant white envelope.
And so, without further ado, here is a clip of me opening my mission call:
There was so much excitement! Everyone was talking to me at once, which was kind of overwhelming but I was so happy that it didn't matter. Carson looked up pictures and maps of the Philippines and was showing my Dad the pictures.
I am so excited y'all! Honestly, the more I think on my mission and prepare, the more comfortable and at peace I become. I KNOW that I was called to the Philippines by a loving Heavenly Father, who knows me personally and knows the people that I will be serving personally. I could not have asked for a better call. I know that I will be helping others by bringing others unto Christ. I know that the peace I have to bear up my trials comes from having this gospel in my life. That is why I decided to serve a mission. I know that LASTING peace and LASTING happiness only comes through Jesus Christ.
Thank you for sharing in my adventures and excitement brothers and sisters! I cannot wait to get to work.
