I Hope They Call Me On A Mission!!

It's official! Samuel's call came yesterday and he was so excited! He had been waiting for the mail every day since getting home from BYU! He waited until we were all together to open it.

Before watching the video be sure to turn off the music below.
If you can't hear the video, because of the crying baby, he has been called to the Paraguay Asuncion Mission. He enters the MTC on July 22. This is the same mission that his cousin returned from last year.

We are so happy and excited for him! I am also happy that he will be speaking Spanish. Where has the time gone? These next couple of months are going to fly by getting him ready to go and then the next two years will probably feel like forever for me. I am so proud of Samuel and the Man that he has become!

Congratulations to Samuel and all your family. That is so exciting. Did Samuel tell you he ran into Kyle and the kids on BYU campus in April?

Wow! That is so exciting! Paraguay! How cool that he will be totally immersed in the Spanish language and in a different culture! I look forward to hearing updates on all the important and awesome things that he is doing there!
