Today was a very busy day for me. It began with church at 9 to 12, mission interview at 2:30, mission prep class at 3:30, then seminary graduation at 6. Whew!!!
All of this mission prep is making my mission a real reality and it's starting to kick in that I will only be here for a few months more. I'll miss everybody, but it's time for me to experience the world and get to know myself better and gain valuable skills. I am extremely nervous that I will fail or that I won't be good enough, but I know that this mission is something that I need to do. I feel ready enough, if there is a 'ready'.
Waiting for my mission call is killing me! I can't wait to find out where I'm going. I already love the people and the land, if only I knew who they were and where it is. It's strange, how I already feel love for a people that I don't yet know, but I feel a longing to be with them, a willingness to serve them. I know it sounds silly, and I can't explain it. I just... love them.
Wish me luck!
