“Don’t count your days—make your days count.” Elder Jay Jensen

Hey y’all! I have been home from my mission for over a month and I am going to now be posting my mission updates for all to read. They don’t start from the beginning because I didn’t do them at the beginning so….they will be funny, sad, upsetting, and joyous at different times. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya. And I hope you are ready for a ton of mission talk 🙂 I loved the 18 months I was gone and I wouldn’t trade those 18 months for anything in the world…no amount of money could’ve convinced me to not go. I was called by God and that was who I did it for. Because I love Him, I put everything on hold for 18 months.

Enjoy your reading! And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask at any time. I can get you answers. If I can’t I know who do. I will help you any way that I can.

“South Carolina Low Country” -Josh Turner

If you don’t know what the title of this blog is from than you probably don’t listen to country. But there is a reason why I picked those song lyrics for my title of the blog and the reason is this: I GOT MY MISSION CALL!!!! It came Saturday, January 26, 2013.

Here is my call letter :) there was nothing better than being surrounded by friends and family when I read where I was going.

As you can probably see, I’m called to the South Carolina Columbia mission. It’s pretty exciting! I leave March 6, 2013 for the Missionary Training Center and I will be there for a couple of weeks before I head out to my mission. I have been doing a lot of research about the State and I have learned a lot! For example, Josh Turner is from South Carolina. Now you know why I chose the title.

Now that it’s been almost a week since I opened my call, I have made a list of things I need to buy, here are some of the things on my list:

  1. Notebooks
  2. Shoulder bag
  3. Bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths
  4. Shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, etc.
  5. First-aid kit supplies: multi-vitamins, cold & allergy medicine, decongestants, fever reducer, anti-diarrhea, anti-biotic ointment, anti-itch cream, anti-fugal cream or spray, band-aids, 25-35% DEET
  6. Sunscreen and Lip Balm with at least SPF 30
  7. Small sewing kit
  8. Battery clock
  9. Laundry bag
  10. Batteries
  11. Watch
  12. Moleskin
  13. Skirts
  14. Shirts
  15. Shoes
  16. Water Bottle
  17. Eyeliner
  18. Stamps
  19. Envelopes

That’s not everything I have to buy but that gives you an idea of every day things that I’ll need. All of that and more has to fit in two checked suitcases and one carry-on, hope it’ll all fit lol.

Anyone who wants me to have their address or email, send it to me somehow. You can message it to me on Facebook, it’s the easiest thing to do. I’ll be leaving in 5 weeks so if anyone wants to keep up my blog, comment because I’ll need someone to update my blog while I’m on my mission.

Thanks everyone who has been supporting me in my decision to go on a mission, I can’t believe that in a little over a month I’ll be in South Carolina doing the Lord’s work 🙂 I love all of you guys!
