On Friday, November 18, 2011 we received our call from Thomas S. Monson, the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Texas McAllen Mission. We were very excited to know that we would be serving the Lord in McAllen, Texas in the Mission Office. We were also excited to know that we would be serving near our daughter Emily and her family. We had been waiting since the first part of October for our call to come. We were also relieved that the wait was over and to know that we would be entering the Mission Training Center in Provo, Utah on January 9, 2012.
