This is a blog that I have set up so that you all can see what life will be like for a missionary of the LDS Church (Official name: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)! I have been called to serve in the France Lyon Mission starting on February 20th, 2013, so I will begin in two days! Here is a peek at the mission boundaries if you would like to know:
From February 20th to April 2nd, I’ll be in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT. While I am there, I will be immersed in French, study the scriptures, and basically be studying and learning from the example of Christ the whole time. I am definitely looking forward to it!
After April 2nd, I will be amongst the people of France (I don’t know what city until I get there), conversing with them, teaching them, serving them, and loving them. Just like Christ would do.
In the description of the blog, I’ll put the addresses by which you can reach me while I am gone! I get one day a week to write letters and emails (Personal Days.. “P Days” for short). I plan on sending my mom emails, from which the content of this blog will come, so she can put them up on this blog. Occasionally there will be pictures, too!
I love you guys!
