Exciting Mission Announcement

Profile PictureAt the October 2012 General Conference, President Monson announced that young men can now serve missions at the age of 18 and young women at 19. I have been preparing to serve a mission since my early teen years, and this means I can go sooner than I had anticipated. I submitted my mission papers and have been called to serve as a missionary in the Hungary, Budapest Mission! I am beyond excited and totally humbled to receive this calling. I leave in April of 2013 and will prepare to preach the Gospel in the Hungarian language. It is anticipated that I will receive training at the Provo MTC for nine weeks. Two of my roommates got their mission calls the same night as I did. Here’s the evidence… and we are headed to Lyon, France, Neuquen, Argentina, and Budapest, Hungary!
