I have been called to serve in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission!
No, seriously! This isn’t a lame missionary joke! I really have the honor and privilege of serving the Lord’s flock in the heart of Zion.
People laugh when I tell them where I’m going. Heck, I laughed when I found out. But there is no place on earth I’d rather serve. Not Australia or France or Hawaii, because I know that this is where the Lord wants me to be. I firmly believe that the call was divinely oriented and that the Lord knows that the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission is where I will have the most influence for good for the 18 months that I am there.
And it’s such a fantastic fit for me, as well. I adore Salt Lake City. As I’m researching the mission and finding out about more the unique opportunities I’ll have, I can feel my testimony of the call grow. I know that this is where I’m supposed to be, and I am so unbelievably excited about it.
I’ve got a long way to go in the 4 months before I enter the MTC. I have a lot of weaknesses, but I know that in the Lord those weaknesses came become strengths.
