Here's whats up!

K, so breaking news! (drum roll please).....I got my itinerary! I leave from the Idaho Falls Airport on December 29 at 9:10. Everyone's welcome to come see me for one last time before I turn into one hott RM.
I have sooo much to do.
*apply for vista*
*take a long hot shower for the last time in 2 years*
*flush toilet paper all I want*
*get immunizations*
*go to the temple!*
*get all my clothes (are you aware of how darn hard it is to get a short sleeve white shirt)*
*tell Courtney how amazing she is*
By the way, does anyone have any suggestions for fleas and deadly mosquitoes?
Also, is ring worm really as bad as people say?
Peace out! (P.S. yes, this is Courtney writing!)

Where's a Map?

On Thursday August 10 I got my mission call in the mail. Unfortunately this was the same day as my Great Grandma's funeral, who passed away at the age of 95. She was an awesome lady and I will remember her for great sense of humor and her joyful attitude.
One good thing about this was that all my siblings and some of my cousins were there to see me open my mission call letter. I was certain I would be sent stateside so when I saw the word "Brazil" I was flabbergasted.
We had a world map up on the kitchen wall to put all our guesses. Max won so we were supposed to buy him a milkshake, but I don't really think he ever believed I would actually buy him a milkshake :-P. Instead we went to Rupe's and each payed for our own.
Welll there is tons of stuff to do before December 30 so I have to go!

I have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the BRAZIL FORTALEZA MISSION. I depart for the MTC in Sao Paulo, Brazil on December 30.
