You are assigned to labor in the...

“Dear Sister Hargrove:
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Brazil São Paulo South Mission…
You should report to the Brazil Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, April 24, 2013. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Portuguese language…”
Best. Day. EVER.
So, my mission call finally arrived today. And I will be serving the good people of Brazil! Who would have thought?! I am so, so, SO excited for this. I know that this is exactly where God needs me. Brazil. 
Here’s the video of me opening my mission call. Enjoy!

Mission Call arrival prediction.

I predict that my mission papers will arrive this Thursday, December 20. It has been exactly two weeks since I turned my mission papers in, so now, I’m just playing the waiting game until they get here. I’ll probably camp out by my mailbox on Wednesday night. Also, in the past week, I have moved back to my hometown of Cathlamet, WA, so I’ve been busy… but all I can think about is that letter in the mail! The anticipation is killing me! I’ve made a map and a Facebook group containing all of the guesses as to where I will be getting my call to. So far the United States, Germany, and the Philippines are trending. We’ll see!

My mission papers are turned in. Huzzah!

On Sunday, December 2, 2012, I turned in my mission papers. President Lee, my Stake President, told me that it usually takes about two weeks to have a decision made, and then almost a week for them to send it out. So if that is true, then I should be receiving my mission call on December 27. So, now it’s just a waiting game. Good grief. I’m so anxious, it’s not even funny! In the mean time I’ll be spending the next two weeks working like crazy, registering for classes, and moving back to our house in Cathlamet. Good times.
