I remember this day vividly. I cannot help but be overwhelmed with gratitude to my Heavenly Father. I know that he does with a surety hear and answer your prayers. He hears my prayers, he answers them, and he knows me personally. I know that I am supposed to serve a mission and have know since my early teens, I am so excited that I am able to serve at a younger age now. Because of my desire to serve not only will effect those whom I will teach on my mission but also my future family. I know that serving a mission will prepare me for those sacred responsibilities as a mother as well as a wife. 18 months is nothing in comparison to eternity. I am ready! I am so excited to receive my call to serve.
