Lithuania

Photobucket

Sister Jessica opened her mission call on Saturday night to the Baltic mission - serving in Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia and speaking Lithuanian.

She was so shocked when she opened it that she laughed and cried all at the same time. All of us there kept screaming, "Lithuania?" "The Baltic?" and immediately opened our iPhones for a map of this place we had never heard of.

To say I am proud of her would be an understatement. I am so full of joy, in an indescribable way. If you want to see my cry in the near future, just ask me about Jessica leaving on her mission. It is foolproof and works anytime, anywhere. As of late: fast food drive through's, grocery store parking lots and the office. I love that girl so much.

congratulations to her! that is so exciting. i remember doing things like that with my brother before he left. nothing says quality time like michael scott on the tube and greasy food in the belly.

Okay, so so exciting! Congrats to Jessica.

And I know this feeling--it never quite goes away, but you become even more proud of them.

They go into the MTC the same day!
Alex Hansen and Jake Palmer both went on that mission. Also, the Bohems in our ward were there :)
Yay for such a great mission!
