An Exciting Text!!

I just received message passed down from President Park.

My mission was assigned this morning :):):)

That is all.

I open my call a week from tomorrow!

People keep asking me "Where do you want to go??" And I have a very hard time answering it. Of course I want to go somewhere completely awesome, where everyone will be so shocked and say "That's the coolest mission!". I would love to serve foreign and learn a language and receive that intense culture shock. But I'm not choosing. I know that when I open that envelope a week from tomorrow, that whichever geographic location is written in the letter, that it will feel exactly right. And I won't be able to picture myself anywhere else.
It's just so hard waiting! Each day gets slower and slower. 
Almost there!!

It may not be on the mountain height
Or over the stormy sea,
It may not be at the battle's front
My Lord will have need of me.
But if, by a still, small voice he calls
To paths that I do not know,
I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in thine:
I'll go where you want me to go.
Perhaps today there are loving words
Which Jesus would have me speak;
There may be now in the paths of sin
Some wand'rer whom I should seek.
O Savior, if thou wilt be my guide,
Tho dark and rugged the way,
My voice shall echo the message sweet:
I'll say what you want me to say.
There's surely somewhere a lowly place
In earth's harvest fields so wide
Where I may labor through life's short day
For Jesus, the Crucified.
So trusting my all to thy tender care,
And knowing thou lovest me,
I'll do thy will with a heart sincere:
I'll be what you want me to be.
I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord,
Over mountain or plain or sea;
I'll say what you want me to say, dear Lord;
I'll be what you want me to be.

The Papers Are In!

Hey There!!!

My mission papers have been submitted.....

I'm just a little excited.....

And got WAY too into taking pictures. I apologize.. haha

But this is biggggg news!

I can't stay focused on anything... school just keeps getting put father and farther on the back burner.

Sometime in the next week, leaders of the church will see my picture and information flashed up on a big screen right next to a map of the world, and they will choose and be inspired about a destination to where I will be spending the next 18 months of my life.

I repeat, I can't stay focused on anything.

Read it... do it! I bawl every time I do.

This is the real deal. And I can't express how excited I am. 

My bishop and others have warned me of all the crap that i'll be going through from now until it's time for me to leave. Satan sure works hard - and he's good at what he does, which can be a little nerve wracking. 

But the Lord is stronger. 

And I am stronger, with the Lord. So have I no doubt in my mind that I will make it. 

Especially with my support group. I have so many people standing behind me who are prepared to fight and cheer me on. It's overwhelming! But a good overwhelming.

I am so loved. And I only hope that I can spread even a portion of that love with the people of this mysterious destination. 

Soooo excited!

God Bless.
