Finally the time arrived, everyone was there and gathered around and we were ready to hear where he would be going and when.
First Mikel read a scripture.
And then he opened the call and read it...
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the South Africa Durban Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 24 months.
You should report to the South Africa Missionary Training Center on Thursday, June 25, 2015. You will prepare to preach the gospel int he English language. Your assignment may be modified according to the needs of the mission president.
He was so happy!
Trying to find where South Africa is.
As his mom I was most surprised by the date. All his friends were getting their calls and they were all in July so I really expected he would leave in July but his call was for June. A week before his brother gets home from his mission.
After the opening everyone enjoyed talking and looking things up and having some food.
