Called to Serve

Tonight was a great night for our family. My little brother Drew received is mission call. It was a blast to have family and friends over for dinner and as Drew opened his call. We were sad that my Dad wasn't able to join us ( he was listening over the phone) because he is on a 3 week business trip in Europe. It was a great experience to see Drew open his call. Drew is called to serve in the Louisville, Kentucky mission. He reports to the MTC on January 23rd, 2013. He will be speaking English. We are thrilled for Drew, and a little bit surprised! We thought he would be called to a foreign mission, but we know his call is inspired and he will be an amazing missionary to the people of Kentucky, and the surrounding areas. We are so proud of you Drew!

The rest of the night was having fun with cousins. Gavin liked playing with his cousins and they would crawl around with him.


  1. The picture of yours and Gavins excited faces is the cutest! I laughed so hard at your caption. Haha. Love it. That is so exciting! We both have brothers on missions. It's so fun. It's probably easier on us cause we live away, but it really is so great and fun to talk to them and get to know them through writing.
