My little brother received his mission call last night. He'll be going to the North Carolina Raleigh Mission, reporting to the MTC in November 2010! We're so excited. It was fun to have everyone in the family make guesses about where he would go and post it on a world map. We were there with him just a few weeks ago and hoped he would get his call while we were there. We missed it by a week and a half. We're grateful for modern technology. We were able to be there via webcam. Such a fun experience.

I'm so proud of him. He'll be a great missionary and it will be a wonderful two years of his life!

This is my family (my family, sisters families, brother and parents) right after my brother was ordained as an Elder (received the Melchizedek priesthood) , this summer.


  1. That's awesome. My grandparents served in the mission many years ago. I remember them really loving the fall season in N.C.

  2. That's crazy, I have an aunt and uncle that live in Raleigh, N.C. Their names are Phil and Beth Thomas and they aren't members of the there's his first missionary reference. I've never been there, but my mom has been there several times to visit (it's her sister) and she loves it there. She says it's very beautiful.
