Stake Conference came around and the Bishop told me to make sure to check the mail on Wednesday or Thursday (you typically get it on Wednesday's) because I will be getting my call. First of all, I was super nervous that day because I was saying the opening prayer in front of tons of people. Then he tells me this? Nervous wreck. I could not sleep until I got my call. I ended up having to take a trip to Wal-Mart to get Melatonin to be able to sleep.Wednesday came and I could not pay attention in school until I knew I had it. Turns out I didn't get. Heavier the envelope is and the price of the postage sometimes determines where you're going. I was almost positive I was going abroad. The next day I get a call from Coralee saying it was in the mail. I freaked out! I made sure everyone was at my house by 6:30 p.m for the opening.
I was called to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Eugene, Oregon. Right when everyone was gone, I made sure to look up Eugene. It's gorgeous. Funny side note, before everyone got there, I was telling my roommate how it would be fun to serve in Oregon. Well, I got it! I report to the MTC on June 6th (wednesday). I'm so excited. I wish it would just come now! My former Bishops son actually served in the same mission so I went over for Sunday Dinner and we sat down for a good couple hours and just talked about it. First things first, I better not go to any city in the "valley of sickness." If you get allergies- which I do- you will pretty much be miserable. Let's pray that it's not as bad as I've heard.
Here are some pictures I found on Google Images:
|This is Crater Lake. It was originally a Volcano. It's also the|
deepest lake in the United States.
|This is the coast in Oregon. Breath taking, right?|
|This is downtown Eugene. I can't wait to see all the green and|
the big trees.
|I'll be coming home and die hard Duck fan, I'm sure.|
|My mission is the read area. I was telling everybody that I|
better not be sent to Montana, Nevada or Idaho. I think it's funny how it
covers a tiny part of Nevada. It sweeps down in the most beautiful
area of California, too!
