Our Mission in Ethiopia

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Jamie bought these cute missionary bears for us and said, "These are from your mom" as she gave them to me at lunch.  My mom would have loved them for sure!! She collected bears and had over 100!! Ü

On TUESDAY April 9th (our daughter Jamie's birthday) the big, white envelope came in the mail! We were expecting it to come on Friday, 12th so I didn't even get the mail until almost 5:00 pm! What a surprise!!  ALL the family came over at 8:15 pm (after my RS meeting) and we opened it! Bob let me read it since I have waited over 40 years to serve a mission!! We got married just 4 days after I turned 21 in Dec. 1972! : /  Two of our grandkids, Maybree and Tanner guessed EGYPT and they were the closest!! We have been called to serve in the UGANDA KAMPALA MISSION for 18 months as CES and MLS missionaries in Ethiopia and Uganda!! We enter the MTC in Provo on August 5th!  We are SOOO excited!! Ü
