So I have some rather exciting news to relate, although most of you have already heard through other sources. Anyways, the point is that about a month ago I decided to put my mission papers in, and last week I received a big white envelope in the mail telling me where I would be spending the next 18 months of my life. Imagine my surprise when I ripped it open to find that I have been assigned to the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC SANTO DOMINGO EAST MISSION!!!!!! Yes those are all in capital letters because I am yelling aloud inside my head. I cannot believe after all of the crazy life experiences I have been blessed with, I am being given the ultimate experience to go and serve the Lord. I am excited, terrified, overwhelmed, giddy, worried, anxious, and most of all grateful. I know that it will change my life, and I am so happy I will get to share the wonderful message of this gospel with the amazing people of the Dominican Republic. So although it was a long and rather detoured road to get here, I am ready to start this new adventure.
