As most of you know I am going to be serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! (If you didn't know that...well... SURPRISE! haha)
I will be living away from my friends and family for a year and a half where in the only contact I will have with them will be via email once a week and snail mail. Crazy right?
If I cant do all the new trendy things such as play on my iPad, watch TV, go to the movies, hang with friends, then what WILL I be doing you may ask? Well, in short, I will be helping others know God's love, teach of Christ and his doctrines, serve people, and anything else I am called to do.
Your next question is probably where am I going? And you know what, I wish I knew! Luckily, I will be finding out any day now. Iowa? Alaska? New York? Idaho? Germany? Russia? France? Mexico? The list is endless.
For 18 months I will be somewhere else in the WORLD.. speaking English? Spanish? Khmer? Russian? ... I have no idea. All I do know is that it is exactly what I need to be doing with my life at this time.
My mind is going crazy trying to guess where I will be spending the next years of my life. I am scared outta my mind but I know that wherever I go I will be blessed. I know that God will protect me and my friends/family while I am away. I know this gospel is true and I cant wait to help it bless others as much as it has blessed me.
Wish me luck! Please keep me in your prayers these next few days as I wait for my call. I might just go crazy with all the anticipation! Seeya next time folks.
P.s.... If any of this "Mission" stuff was confusing to any of you or if you want to know more about the message I will be teaching feel free to ask me questions. Also, clicking the "I'm a Mormon" button on the side of my blog will direct you to an information site.
