I hoped...

...and they called!!!

On July 9, 2010, I received my mission call to serve as a full-time missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!!! I will be serving and sharing the joy of the gospel with the wonderful people in the Georgia Atlanta Mission!!!!! I am super excited!!! I report to the Provo MTC on August 18...exactly one month from today!!! Holy gravy, the day is going to be here before we know it!

My family will be keeping up this blog while I'm serving in the Peach State. They'll be posting my weekly e-mails and any pictures I send them. Feel free to follow along with my missionary adventures Down South!
