I feel so great about receiving my mission call it is such a relief to know where the Lord wants me to serve for the next two years of my life!! So… as most of you know I got my call to the Cincinnati, Ohio Mission and I leave on July 10th. When the day came that I got my call my parents kept reminding me that I was going to get called to a place where the Lord wanted me to go. And when I opened my call and read Cincinnati I just knew that’s where I was supposed to go. I felt like such a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders and such a feeling of relief and peace. I feel so happy and excited about going to serve a mission but at the same time I am really nervous because at the same time I haven’t even graduated high school yet… it is all happening so fast it is CRAZY!! But I am most definitely excited to go out and serve. Another thing that means a lot to me about serving a mission is that I will be setting an example to my two younger brothers to also go and serve a mission I often think about if I had chosen not to go what they would think or what they would do when it was their time also. Good thing I don’t have to worry about setting a bad example for them by not serving. So yeah, I'm way excited I am going to serve a mission in Ohio I know that it is where I am supposed to be and I will bless a lot of people’s lives and I know that by this choice my life will be eternally blessed!!
