New Mission Assignment!

Hello all,                                                                                               Sept 9, 2014

Well we finally got our temporary reassignments! So without further adieu, drum roll please!

I have been called to serve in the Nebraska Omaha Mission!!!!! Not at all what I was expecting! I am so stoked!! Elder's Perkins, Humphries, Nielson, Johnson, myself and Sister Strong are  all going together! Some of the other call's are California Carlsbad, where Elder Casper is going. And also Pocatello Idaho, SLC South, St. George! So crazy! I leave next Wednesday at 4:30 AM and the Flight leaves SLC at 8:10 AM then we fly to Dallas and that flight leaves at 1:50 PM. So Yeah it says that our baggage fee's are $25 for the first checked bag and $35 for the Second....whatever that means... well I will try to let you know more soon. I love you all!
Not headed here quite yet! Detour to Nebraska!

Well sorry everybody, this email has to be a quick one. I know that you are all probably super grateful for that!

 So this Wednesday I will be leaving to Omaha Nebraska! Super stoked, we will be there for a few week's until our visas come through! I know that we are called all over the world because everyone needs to hear this message. Whether it is in Taiwan or if it is in Nebraska! I am super excited to teach where ever I am called to go.
Can't believe my kid sis is gonna be 16!Happy Birthday Boos!

 The message this week is just love everyone. I am stoked to talk to you all on Wednesday! We read this week in Alma where it talks about there souls were greived at the thought of one soul being lost. A mission is such a cultural thing in Utah. You get your call and the whole reason you have everyone over is so that you can show them where you are going. Which really isn't the point. It was a little disappointing to not be able to go to the place I was called immediatley. But when we read this I was reminded of the question.

 Why are you really here?

 The reason I chose to come on a mission was to serve the Lord and teach his people! Not to just go experience another culture. It was a great and humbling experience for me. All 31 of us realize that there is something we have to do out there in this new area and I can't wait to see what it is! Sorry again for the short email! love you all

  1. Great place - my daughter Cindy and her husband Tyler lived at Offett Airbase where he was stationed a number of years ago - so a military base is there, and Winter Quarters, and a lot of church history! Enjoy!
