I have been called to serve in the West Indies Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am super excited!! I received my call in the mail on Thursday April 21, 2011 and I was sure I was going somewhere cold, like Vermont or somewhere in Canada. When I opened the call and read: "You are assigned to labor in the West Indies Mission... You should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, August 17, 2011. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the English Language..." I think my jaw about hit the floor with astonishment.
Going somewhere warm, let alone in the Caribbean, had not even crossed my mind. From the day my mission papers were submitted, I could not get the song, "I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go" out of my head. I was so nervous waiting for the call to come!
