I Hope They Call Me On A Mission

Last Thursday was quite a crazy day! J.J. and 4 of his roommates got their mission calls at the same day! After weeks of anticipation, the boys eagerly ripped open their envelopes and, with parents on the phone and their friends all around, found out where they would be serving for the next two years. Everyone was so excited! Here are some pictures of J.J., Nathan, and Luke opening their calls.

Opening the call...

California, Carlsbad Mission, Spanish-speaking!

A bit overwhelmed.

But still very excited!

"I have no clue where I'm going..."

"Mozambique, Maputo, Portuguese-speaking! No way! That's awesome! So... is that in South America or something?"


"This is exciting! LOL."

"Guatemala, Quetzaltenango, Spanish-speaking!"

"Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Say that three times fast."

Erick also got his call, and is going to the Utah, Salt Lake South Mission, Spanish-speaking. Tyler waited for his family to arrive on Sunday to open his call to the Texas, Houston South Mission, also speaking Spanish!

All of the boys report to the MTC in early May, and four of the five are speaking Spanish. This is such an exciting time for all of us Mormon kids! We're going to miss those boys a lot for the next two years, but we know that they are going to do some amazing work and be awesome missionaries! I guess Sarah, Becca, and I had better stock up on our stationary...
