I received my mission call on October 17 2014 on a Friday . I didn’t expect it to come on this day the whole week I was checking and checking since my bishop said they where sent to salt lake on Oct 1st I knew they come around two weeks so it was two weeks and everyone says that they come in Thursday so I thought I receive it on a Thursday so I check on that Thursday and nothing I was super upset I had to wait another week perhaps but I knew my call was assign since I could log on my ldsmail .well anyways That Friday Morning I woke up didn’t have class since it was fall break I told myself “Kim you should get ready and look nice to go get the mail what if your call is here? “so I did and well I went outside didn’t tell anyone I was going to check plus I was not expecting it to come on a Friday ..well I open the mail box what did I see ..I stood there looking at the white big envelope In shock

I couldn’t wait to open it and know ..but I had made plans before that the only person I would have to wait for was my uncle vince in California who I had to wait to Skype with after he got of work …so I had to wait until 3pm to open it .so questions began where could I sent be sent ?
