Called to serve!!

I'm going on a mission!

"Dear Sister Roeller,

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 Philippines Bacolod Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months.

You should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, June 2, 2010. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Tagalog language."

These few sentences have and will change my life in ways that I cannot even imagine.

This is me, opening my mission call. This was the smallest I could get this image and it still won't fit on the page, so if you feel the need to watch it in all its glory, click HERE. The video is kind of long, beginning with waiting for David Neilsen to get there (which I'm still mad about, by the way :P ) and ends with me ending conversations with my family on the phone and learning how to say the name of my mission. The middle part is the best, though. The part where I read it.

Enjoy! :)
