In the beginning...

There are 84 days until my mission, and time couldn't have flown any faster. It also couldn't speed up enough. I am so excited.
I received my mission call on December 5th, 2012 and could not have been any more excited. Since then I perk up when I hear the word Chile, see a hispanic person, or hear spanish. This can sometimes be quite the dilemma  The night I received my call, everything was Chile! We were driving and drove past Chili's and I was so excited, the weather report said it was going to be chilly the next few days...I couldn't be more exstatic. I know that Chile is where I am supposed to go!  It makes me so excited to learn of the mannerisms of this culture or learn more spanish in school. Es perfecto para mi. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us and my call was issued in a different time frame than I expected, but it has been the best time frame for me. I know school this semester has done nothing but prepare me for my next 18 months. I am so excited to serve the Lord, the people of Chile and to bring blessings to the people, my family, and myself.
