It's time

Well it's time for me to head for the MTC. My bags are packed and in the car, all my things boxed up, and all that's left is for the clock to strike 4:00 am so I can head off to the airport. As I wait for the next hour to slowly pass I can feel the anticipation and excitement build. I'm not at all scared of the task before me. I know that I will be doing God's errand and if I do it faithfully I will be protected from harm. I love this church and I know this gospel is true. I love the fact that I have a chance to serve the Lord for two short years. I know my mission area was chosen for a reason and not by chance. I know true happiness can only be found in this gospel. I leave that testimony in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, Amen. I love you all, and am thankful for your support.

Scripture for this post is:
Alma 34:32

As I sit and watch the minutes tick by I can't help to think of who I am and how far I've come. I have less than 6 days remaining till I fly out of here. I still can remember being a little kid and thinking how far away my mission was. It feels like yesterday I got my mission call. Not to long ago my mind was filled with girls, cars, movies, and video games. Now it is filled with something much different. Scriptures run through my head, a to do list a mile wide circles ominously over the head, and memories of past associations tear my eyes. It's amazing. I can barely sleep at night in anticipation. I pace the house trying to stay occupied and not think of the time left. It's amazing how fast we grow up. Well, I'm off to bed. Goodnight and I'll update you in a week.

Welcome to my Missionary blog. I don't think I can update this myself while on my mission but I will have my family do it. It will be an easy way for me to keep everyone up to date without writing 600 letters a week. So please subscribe and watch for updates. I'll try to get it updated at least once a week. Thanks and have a wonderful life. :)
