As most of you probably know I got my mission call on Friday. I'm going to Fukuoka Japan! It's a beautiful place and I'm so excited!
For some reason I always thought I'd be speaking some Asian language, but I actually didn't expect it to be Japanese. I had a cool experience that really testified though that this truly was the place that I'm supposed to go to.
After I opened my call, the friends and family had left and things had settled down I began trying to learn all I could about my field of labor for the next two years.
I stumbled upon the blog of some random missionary who was currently in my mission and began to scroll through the pictures of Japanese people on it.
And something really kind of amazing happened. A powerful feeling of love flowed into me. I almost was in tears for how much love I felt for those people. And that was when I knew that Fukuoka Japan is EXACTLY where I'm supposed to go, and that's where the Lord needs me most.
I'm so excited!
