It was a Friday... most mission calls came on Wednesdays or Thursdays, but the family was all coming to Utah Friday evening and I woke up at 6am that morning and knew it was coming that day! Anyway, I went over to grandma's house at about 11:30am and the mail hadn't come yet. I had to leave at 12:45pm to get to class, but on the way out I saw the mail man. He said he hadn't seen any mission calls, but he checked anyway and found it. I went home and grandma and I began to feel very nervous. I hid the call upstairs so neither of us would look at it until mom, Missy and dad got there that night. I was nervous... Grandma was even more than I was. She was worried I was going to get called far away to Ghana, Ethiopia, or somewhere too far away and different. Before I opened it, I had everyone write down on a paper their top 3 guesses... Dad, Missy, Mom, Grandma, Norman, and Cyndi were at the opening. Right before I opened it, "Idaho" flashed in my head, which made me even more nervous. When I opened it, I immediately read it quietly instead of out loud and said "well... we've been there before." Mom shouted out "San Diego, Las Vegas???" Dad started to look worried. Then I said think furniture... and then they said "North Carolina" and dad said I got a good call and grandma looked relieved. North Carolina Raleigh Mission. It felt unreal, so I want upstairs to think about it. Brittany came over a few minutes later and I "re-opened" it. I felt surprised that it wasn't somewhere "Crazy", but I was HAPPY! Brittany met the family and they all got along really well. She hugged mom and dad before she left and everything was GREAT!
