I have officially been given my reassignment. Before I tell everyone where I will be headed I just wanna saw how overly excited I am for this. I know that God is fully aware of my situation and He knew this would happen for a long time. I know He would have not called me to Brazil at this time ifHe didn't want me to get a reassignment as well. I believe there are people in both places that I can help. People that need the knowledge of the gospel. People who want to know who their Savior is and how they can get back to live with Him. How they can live with their families forever. They want answers to the big questions of life. Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? I just feel overwhelmingly blessed to be that person. I love being a missionary. Where ever he wants me to be.
I will be leaving on Tuesday Morning at 4 AM! Two other missionaries from my district are going to come with me. Sister Peterson (the one with the looonnng blonde hair) and Elder Crapo (the one with the short blonde hair) I am so happy that I will have travel buddies. Leaving the district is going to be so hard. Leaving my family was sorta hard... but I know I will see ya'll again. My district is sorta a toss up. I could see them again.. but I don't know for sure! So I am a little sad. Elder Wyatt (the elder from Ellensburg) is leaving TOMORROW! He is going to Montana. Then some more missionaries leave on Monday.. I just have to watch everyone leave me! haah I know this is how it is meant to be, but it will be sorta sad.
This is my flight schedule
Tuesday May 21st
1st flight leaving from Salt Lake at 7:15AM and landing in Phoenix at 7:53AM
THen I have an hour where I will be talking to you, family!! So be ready for me! I think I will actually call moms cell this time. haah :P Let me know if you would rather me call a different one. I will have quarters to call and make sure some one answers but then I will hang up and use my calling card.
I leave the Phoenix airport at 8 55AM and then touch down in Houston at 1:38PM. THen the adventure continues... :D (I am so excited)
Anyway, if anyone has time I would love to know more about that mission! If you could look it up and then dearelder it to me I would be overly grateful! All I know is it is by the border and it is 90% humidity! wooo! (getting me pumped for Brazil ya?) Just anything you can find out about it. Thanks!
I ran into my cousin Ben Baker a few times and we got to talk. It was great seeing him. He is serving in Arizona.
As a district we have been doing Crossfit. It is a workout system that works so well, but it also hurts so bad! haah I did a bunch of squats and push-ups so I am super sore, but that will be good for me. :)OH! I almost forgot. The other day Janice Kat Perry came to Relief Society. THat is the lady who wrote "As sisters in Zion" "A childs prayer" "Love is spoken here" "The armies of Helaman" and a bunch of other great ones. (Dylan she wrote "I belong to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well ;) ) Anyway, she came and she had written a new verse to "As sisters in Zion!" It is called "The sisters in Zion" and it is so awesome! Look for the new CD to come out! I don't know when it will come out but it is such a powerful song. The sisters at the MTC were the first ones to sing it!! I feel so blessed!
