And they did! Well, not my mission but Kolton's mission call arrived in the mail today! Before he opened his letter we wrote on the board where we thought he was going to be called. It was fun to see where people guessed.
Kacey, Kade, and Kody weren't home when we opened the call but Crystal called Kacey and had him on speaker phone, Megan called Kade and had him on speaker phone, and Nic had Kody on speaker phone. We were all so excited we could hardly stand it. Kolton was shaking - he had quite the adrenaline rush!
Kolton has been called to serve a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He will serve in:
Torreon is found near the topish-middle of Mexico. His mission boundaries are from Torreon to the West coast of Mexico (including Puerto Vallarta & Mazatlan - but it's not guaranteed he'll spend time in those areas).
We had so many family and friends at the house. After he opened his call and we all shouted for joy, we had a delicious dessert made by my mom. It was Angel Food Cake with vanilla pudding, cool whip, and fresh strawberries on top. My Grandma also made a delicious Pistachio cake. It may not sound the best but I'll tell you what! It's AMAZING!
I know Kolton will make an incredible missionary. He has a sensitive heart and such a genuine spirit. I know Kolton will fall in love with the people in Mexico. I know this mission will make Kolton a better (future) husband and father. I also know this will prepare him for a successful career.
My family is so excited to support Kolton in his desire to serve a mission. We are anxious to write to him, send him packages, hear of his experiences, and learn the gospel with him. I know he will come back a stronger, more determined man.
Congratulations, Kolton! We love you!!!
