It came!!! I could not be more excited to serve the Lord and the people of UTICA, NEW YORK! I cannot contain my excitement! As I was holding the unopened call in my hands, I prayed to the Lord to bless me with comfort and knowledge to know that this call was meant just for me. I was not comforted immediately and as I stood there trying to open my call in front of close family and friends, I started shaking like crazy! I have never been so nervous in my life. Then as I read "you are hereby called to serve as a missionary in the New York Utica Mission" I was instantly comforted and more excited then I have ever been in my life. I love the people of New York so much already and I don't even know them yet! I know without a doubt, I am supposed to go to New York and I can't wait to get out there.
Love, Sister Bailey Tate DeVries
