Anyway, I wish that I could blog about all the festivities of this weekend, but they were just much too joyful to even put into words. 37 people sleeping in the Haynie hotel, 70 plus people at my house on Sunday for the luncheon and so many more in sacrament meeting supporting this new adventure I am about to embark on! I have the BEST family and friends in the whole entire world and I would not be where I am today without them. My mom is a rockstar and we cooked all week to feed the masses yesterday. I love that lady.
Tomorrow at 9 pm I will be set apart by my stake president as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. Whoa. How am I feeling? I don't really know. :) Ecstatic, mostly. Hormonally emotional about leaving people and crying way too frequently. I get really nervous sometimes, and then remember, It is true. I have a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that is what I need. Heavenly Father qualifies those he calls, and he will help me to be the best missionary I can be if I put my trust in him.
Also, for those of you wanting to be forwarded my emails, comment with your email on this blog or on my FB and my adorable and extremely delightful sister, Brianna, will forward them to you. For now, here is my MTC address if you want to write. Hopefully my FB will be updated with my current address depending on what area I am in. :) Love you all and see you in 18 months!!! Over and out.
Good bye Utah and Hello Texas/Louisiana!
