Mission Call Arrival



We were expecting Trent's mission call on April 1. Yes we understood that is April Fool's day, but we didn't believe anyone would really play a joke on us. A call did not come from the post office, the letter did not show up in the mail, and so we began to wonder if it truly was a joke. Ali, Trent's aunt, was not working the next day so no early morning call then either. The long anticipated envelope finally appeared in the regular mail April 2. It was a long wait until everyone was home and we were able to open it. Trent was even shaking as he tried opening the envelope. With a big grin on his face, Trent announced "Seattle Washington on July 8". We are all very excited!!
