Missions are the bomb. I have wanted to serve a mission for as long as I could remember. I didn't talk about it much until the end of my high school years because I had other things to worry about.
I have always had the desire to serve a mission! I knew I would regret not going. I always found myself to be a pretty happy person, some people have even told me they have never seen me not smiling (yikes.) I wanted to go out and share my true joy with all of those within the reach of my voice!
I am STOKED to leave my friends, family, schooling, cat, and America for 18 months and travel to Bolivia. Why? Because I cannot think of a better way to spend some of the best years of my life than to be completely dedicated to the service of Heavenly Father!
Hurrah for Israel!
