Once we received the call, our lives became CRAZY! We were assigned to report to the Missionary Training Center on June 9, 2014. We thought we were ready, but there is a great deal to do once you know where you are going.
We knew that the time would even be short for the Mission President to know we were coming, so we called him. What a wonderful man! He was surprised to hear that we were coming and indicated he had not requested a Senior couple. That just reinforced our testimony that we were going when and where the Lord needed us.
Our children organized a sweet Mother's Day dinner. It made me reflect about family. There will be many changes in the 23 months until we return home. The first will be the addition of another grandchild. We hate to miss such an choice event, but we will be able to stay in touch and see pictures.
