So much has happened over the last few weeks. We had a great Christmas. I saved my energy for the important things, and tried to let the little things go without feeling to guilty.
My granddaughter Tabitha
on Christmas Eve.
My best Christmas present came a week early when a large envelope came in the mail from “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.” It was addressed to my son. We knew it would be coming, and gathered all the family and a few friends together as he opened it. It was a mission call. Jace has been sent on an LDS mission to the San Juan, Puerto Rico mission. He will be leaving March 23rd. He will be gone for two years!
(He went on a mission to Guam)
and Jace reading his mission call.
There was some intense suspense!
This is a blessing and a sacrifice. To understand more about an LDS mission go here.
Jace, as well as our family, are in for an incredible experience. It will be really hard for me to let him go! It is a leap of faith for me. But I know it is the right thing. He will be sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the people of Puerto Rico. He will be learning spanish. We all have a lot of growing to do in the next couple years.
Happy New Year to all, and may good things come your way.
