ever since I have been thinking a lot about serving a mission! It
became so much more real to me since, and I can turn in my papers in
about a year.. craaazy"
Well here's the thing. A LOT can change in a month. And for me it sure has.
I am going on a mission! Nothing has ever been more clear to me. My papers are in. IN FOLKS. I am waiting (ever so patiently HA) for my call. And I could not be happier. I am dedicating 18 months of my life to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our brothers and sisters. I know it won't be easy but I have no doubt in my mind that this is what Heavenly Father had in store for me. I was sooo incredibly frustrated that nothing was working out for me for next semester. And then bam. The Big Man Upstairs gave me an answer so strong I could never deny it. It is the craziest feeling because guys in the church grow up with the mentality of serving a mission at 19. For girls, at least for me, it was always a "well yeah if I'm not married or we will see where I'm at in school when I'm 21!" Yeah that always seemed so far into the future. Well now, it is reality and it is here.
I am going on a mission.
