Guess what came in the mail...

So this post is a little late, I should have posted last week.  Tuesday, August 11th, the mail man brought Bethany's mission call.  We had been waiting and wondering ever since she turned in her papers.  The mail came about 3:00 in the afternoon.  Neil wasn't home so we had to wait.  He actually got home about 10 minutes after the call came, but Bethany decided she wanted to wait until Rebecca was home from work and we could call her.  We called Rebecca at 6:00 her time and 8:00 our time.  Rebecca didn't answer, but called us back shortly.  She was home waiting when we called, but her phone didn't ring.  Bethany opened the call and read it over the phone and to all of us.  She will be serving in the Houston Texas South mission.  She will be speaking english and reports to the MTC on November 18th. 

I can't even begin to say how much I will miss her.  I get a little teary just thinking about it.  But, we are so excited for her to serve the Lord and know that blessings will come in her life as she serves.  I love seeing our children learn and grow. I know serving a mission will help her learn and grow.

  1. Just remember she has a cousin, okay 2nd cousin living in the Houston area. We love to take her and her companion out for a meal several times. I know we are outside her area or we would cook for them. ; )
