I Hope They Call Me on A Mission

We had some very exciting news in our family tonight...in fact, it might be the thing I've been most excited about in a while (although Anna's wedding is close). Grammy and Grampy Shaver received their mission call!  We're so proud of them, and are so grateful for their example.  We're all going to learn so much from their time in...

the Caribbean Area in the Dominican Republic
 
We all gathered via various electronic forms (landline, cellphone, conference call, and video chat!) for the opening and reading of their call.  I took a video from our end, so I'll share that...


It's pretty unbearable to watch, being on a cellphone and of a computer screen and all =)  There is an official video from their end, so hopefully we'll all get to see that soon.  In case you didn't make it all the way through the video, they report to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT on September 12, 2011.  

I'm certain I've never been more proud of my parents and I can't wait to see all they accomplish.  I know there is going to be a void in Eagle, ID for a while, but I am definitely looking forward to a trip to the Dominican Republic!

Congratulations on their mission call. That must be so exciting for the entire family. That would be a proud moment for a child. I hope they have wonderful experiences!
