It's Here

Yessssss! We finally received our long anticipated large white envelope from the church in our mailbox on Thursday, May 26th. We went to our son & daughter-in-law's home to open it, together with all the rest of the family that we could get on multiple phones.

We are going to the Baltics Mission, as office specialists, headquartered in Riga, Latvia. My daughter-in-law, Amanada is so happy and excited. That is where she went on her mission, and she loved it. Also, we are to go into the MTC on November 7th, the same day she reported to the MTC. Hmmmm. what are the chances.

We are so honored and happy to be able to serve the Lord on a mission.

Still Waiting

It's been three weeks since the Stake President submitted our missionary papers on-line. Today is Thursday, the day mission call often arrive in the Pacific NW. Hoping when I get home today it will be in the mailbox. Telling myself, remember, patience is a virtue. I've been practicing patience for years and haven't perfected that attribute yet, but I'm better.

Waiting For The Call

Our papers have been in for two week. We are now just waiting for our letter telling where we will serve for the next two years. We are so excited to start, but still have at least 6 month and a lot of work to do getting all our personal affairs in order before we can leave.

Where we go should be a complete surprise. We didn't request any certain area or job.

Just waiting .....waiting
