Last night I had my farewell open house and this morning I gave my farewell talk. It's crazy to think how fast time has gone on and that in just 10 days I'm actually going to be a missionary. It's absolutely incredible. After I received my call, I received a link to the Missionary Portal, the site for future missionaries that has links to dress guidelines, Preach My Gospel, needed immunizations, etc. This site also has a countdown to when I report to the MTC. I've watched go from 84 to 61 to 25, and I thought that this day would never come, but now it's just around the corner. Ahhhhhh!!! I feel good though, things are feeling right, and I'm feeling ready enough.
These past few days have been filled with many goodbyes, and I have been so blessed with friends, family and neighbors who have been so, so supportive of my decision. None of you know how touched and thankful I am for this, but I would love to thank each and every one of you who have gone out of your way to make me feel welcome and let me into your lives.
I will post something every week (hopefully), and I hope all of you will follow me in this amazing journey! I love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
