After 3 (yes THREE) loooong weeks of looking in the mail box only to find that my heart was crushed with disappointment, IT FINALLY CAME!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes. Unfortunately my parents were in a movie so I couldn't open it until they got back. I was forced to do nothing but stare hopelessly at this envelope for 3 hours! Torture I tell you!
I was shaking real bad when it was time to open my call. I must admit that I jumped ahead and saw where I was called to before I read it out loud. This was my reaction to it before anyone else knew.
Dear Sister Alston:
You are hereby called to serve as a full time missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Guatemala Retalhuleu Mission!!
Your primary assignment is to labor as a Mission Nurse Specialist!!!!! You should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, October 20, 2010. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Spanish language.
In case you couldn't tell, I am VERY excited!! I can't even wait to leave! No, I'm not quite sure what being a "mission nurse specialist" includes but I guess I will find out in 3 and 1/2 weeks. GUATEMALA HERE I COME!!!!
