Called to Serve

We have loved traveling and being with family for the past two years but we felt the call to serve another mission so here we are in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for the next year.

It's Getting Closer

We gave our talks in Sacrament Meeting today. That makes it feel more real. I was asked to talk about how I have prepared for this mission. Wayne was asked to tell a little about where we are going and to talk about the sacrifices of serving a mission. Wayne had talked to a CES person in Salt Lake on Friday who had indicated that we were probably going to be assigned to Palau and would be training seminary teachers and teaching an Institute class. He included all of this information in his talk and then this afternoon the Mission President in Guam called and talked to him. We are back on Guam now and our assignment is going to be working in the mission office. I was a little disappointed that we would not be going to Palau. Wayne had made it sound so good. But we are now going to have the opportunity to visit all the islands in the mission. There are quite a few so we are going to get a lot more exposure to Micronesia this way. It is all sounding so exciting and we are really ready to go.

OH boy, no more pulau. I'll have to keep reading! visiting all the islands does sound really exciting. I'll be living vicariously through the two of you!

That's a GREAT picture of you two! Real missionary looking!

Visiting all the islands, sounds pretty cool. Do you get seasick? ;-)
