In the Beginning

The Time is quickly approaching!!!!

We received our call to the Micronesia Guam Mission last October and have been preparing since that time.  It has been a long wait, but there has been much to accomplish!!  We had to make sure we were "physically" capable, had to get a number of shots, get numerous documents ready for visas, etc. and now the waiting is nearly over and we are excited!!  

In early March, we received a phone call from our Mission President, President Mecham, telling us that he is assigning us to the Island State of Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia.  We had been communicating with a couple, Elder and Sister Tiffany, and they gave us some great insight into the mission and Chuuk. 

There has been so much activity in the ward with so many missionaries coming home and new ones leaving that our "farewell" was in mid March, but now we are about to embark upon a great adventure in the service of our Father in Heaven.  We will spend 10 days at the MTC in Provo and then it is off to Chuuk!

We will update you again while we are in the MTC!
