Missions are GRRRREAT!

Ok, so a lot of you already know that I'm going on a mission...well if you didn't, here's the news!!

I'm going on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I will be teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Peru in their native tongue, Spanish. My mission is the Peru Trujillo Mission. I report to the Provo Missionary Training Center in Utah August 3, 2011 and will be there for approximately 3 weeks. After those 3 weeks I will move to the Missionary Training Center in Peru to further my learning of both the Spanish language and of the gospel for 6 more weeks. I am so excited to go and serve the Lord there and to bless the lives of those that I get to serve.

I have always wanted to go on a humanitarian service rendezvous to Peru, and now I really get to go! I am so excited that I can hardly contain myself. I have a lot to do to get ready for the mission, but I know that I'm in good hands and that I will be able to do all that I am supposed to do!

I will get both the coastal weather and atmosphere of Peru and the mountainous weather and atmosphere. It will be a great experience and I am very blessed to have this opportunity. Here are a few pictures of Trujillo.

Ahhhh, Missionaries.

You know how 'Mormons' always go on those things called missions? You know how they go around and knock on doors and tell people about Jesus Christ and the Plan of Salvation? You know how boys can go when they're 19 and girls can go when they're 21? Finally, did you know that they can submit their 'application' to go on a mission (aka their mission papers) 120 days before their mission?


My birthday is June 26th, and I was born in 1990.
That makes me 20 years old right now...annnnnd it is 
117 days before my birthday!!!

So, you may be asking? What the heck is she talking about? (or not..)

I submitted my mission papers last week!!! :)

That is all. I'll hear back soon (I hope) and I am wayyyyy excited! 
(but nervous for sure...a bit at least)
