So often we think we have life all figured out. We believe that we know what will happen next in our story line but more often then not what ends up coming next is actually a plot twist. That's exactly how my life has always proven to be. But these plot twists always are for the better. They never cease to amaze me as I look back at them and see how I have learned new things and grown as a person. It's amazing how one choice can change our lives forever. And for me I just made one of the biggest decisions of my life. To serve a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Just a few weeks ago I received my mission call to serve in the Guatemala Guatemala City Central Mission. I report to the Guatemala Missionary Training Center (MTC) on September 2nd and I could not be more excited about this opportunity. And as part of my preparation and to keep people updated on it and my mission itself I have decided to start this blog. Up until I leave I will be posting things about why and how I made my decision to serve, what a mission really is, and why the Gospel means so much to me. When I leave my mom will be posting weekly updates that I will send via email so that you can follow me in this next chapter of my life.
