Mission Call

My cousin, David, got his mission call yesterday! He's going to the Chile Concepcion Mission!! His dad went to Chile Santiago and Jed went to Chile Osorno. Isn't that interesting?

We walked to David's dorm from our house in the rain. A mile and a half both ways! We were soaked by the time we got there. :\

David, with his unopened mission call.

Getting his parents on the line.

He opened the envelope with a huge knife...

***FYI: As soon as he says Chile Concepcion, it gets RIDICULOUSLY loud. So plug your ears or turn the volume down real quick***

David was shaking, he was so happy and excited!!

We're so proud of you, David! You're going to love Chile and the people down there. And you're going to make an excellent missionary!! You're awesome. We love you so much!

Actually the bitter herbs were horseradish. The RS makes them and they'll either make them really harsh or light-cause I think they add something to it. Ours were really bad-I went with someone thats gone before and she said they were a 9.5 out of 10. But if you just tell him horseradish, he won't think much of it...;)It was really great-you'll have a good time! Just the atmosphere is really festive and fun!
