Which brings me to the topic of this entry: that specific Skype experience where I will hear the location and language of my little brother's mission. And more exactly WHEN I will be hearing it. The answer is...sooner than expected!
Today I got a call from Christian informing me that President Hall decided to try to turn our papers in today, just for fun I suppose! And guess what. It worked. He sent them in. The General Authorities will be deciding in which missions Christian and I will serve next Thursday!
So for some reason that I don't understand, our papers could go in six days before we thought they could. Clearly I do NOT understand the time constraints and logistics that coincide with turning in one's papers; however, I am grateful they are in, and our calls are being assigned SOON (we hope).
What a day it's been, haha. I cried for most of it. A good cry, but I am talking a good thirty minutes while on campus. Haha. Just crying and crying...I was in a little secluded grassy area where the only people I bothered were a seemingly newly engaged couple cuddling between classes. I looked ridiculous. Nay, I AM ridiculous. Needless to say, they found a new location. And if they are reading this (it could happen--it's a small world, small Provo): I apologize. And I hope your wedding is beautiful. ANYway, what a day. :)
Well, as Christian and I were talking on the phone I asked, "Christian, you ready to be a missionary?" And I'll just answer the question for the both of us on this post:
We're excited, we're really humbled, and we'll be sure to keep you posted on any news over the next few weeks. Love you :)
