On Nephi, and Lehi, and Enos and Omni . . .
Okay everybody, it's official. Aaron received his mission call yesterday, Thursday. Angie texted him to let him know that the 'big white envelope' had arrived. I think he was pretty wired or wigged out by the time he got home from work. He decided to torture himself further by waiting until 8 pm to open it so that everyone could be here. We called Jaci and Jake so they could hear along with the rest of us. His call is to Anchorage Alaska - English speaking, and he leaves on Feb. 25th 2009. We had everyone write down their guesses on where he was going; 'officially' there was no winner, no one was even close. But the unofficial winner was Dad, he said he was going to Twoboobs, Alaska. Lucky guess! About the only comment A.J. made was "I'm going to freeze to death!" We are really excited for him, what a exciting place to go. And we are extra proud of his decision to serve a mission. He's a great example for his friends here and I know those friends who are already serving will be excited to know he is joining them in the field. hummmm, this puts a new twist on 'the field is WHITE, already to harvest.' We love you A.J.
