On June 8th I met family and friends at the Brick Over in Provo and opened my mission call! It was so fun having everyone there and I couldn't have been more excited when I opened my call and read that I would be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, laboring in the PHILIPPINES, MANILA MISSION!!!:) This summer, although a fun one, seems like it has dragged on forever because I've been so excited to get out in the mission field but it's finally time!! I enter the Provo MTC on September 28th and will spend 9 weeks there learning to speak Tagalog and how to preach the gospel to the Filipino people!:) Then before I know it I will be over in the beautiful islands of the Philippines!!
