3x5=15 days ...

my little brother got his mission call on friday and waited to open it until the 50 people that he invited were assembled - on saturday. i was not able to wait that long ... and i didn't invite as many people to be at the 'opening' ... but listening to him read his call has me thinking of when i was a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ and bearing my testimony on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. it was a humbling and challenging time in my life ... but, by far, the most spiritual.
goal # 19 - in conjunction with my 'preach my gospel' reading, scripture reading, daily prayer, religious picture posting and all the other goals that pertain to being a better Christian ... i am going to share my testimony with my family during family night ... and at every opportunity. i know that this will help my testimony to grow and teach my children at the same time!

by the way ... he's going to LasVegas West -
reporting to the MTC on June 10th.

I'll have to check with my relatives to see if they are in the same mission or if they live in the "other" LV Mission. If they are in the West Mission, I'll have to hook him up with some FABULOUS dinners!!!

How fun! John went to Las Vegas for his mission, but I think way back then it was only one large mission. Congrats!

Hey Emily - It's been a while. How exciting for your brother.
I will have to check but I think my in-laws are in the LV West mission. They live in Henderson and I believe that falls in this mission.
