Once upon a time I was very excited to receive my mission call. I had sent in my papers and I knew that it would take approximately 2 weeks for my call to arrive. One day, I got out of class and checked my phone and saw this from two of my lovely roommates:
(Molly and Hailey holding my mission call)
I had never seen a mission call, but I knew what this was. I screamed, causing an Auntie that was in my class to ask what was wrong. As I started running as I yelled back, "My mission call is here! I need to get home!" I literally ran home.
I had already warned my 9 roomies that whenever and whatever date it arrived I'd give them 5 minutes to get there before I opened it. Once I gathered all that could be get there in the 5 minute time limit, I opened it up!
My wonderful roomie, Tiffany, helped by covering the letter, so that I could only read one sentence at a time, and not just skip to where I was going. I could not even comprehend what I was reading (I for real read the words 'Dominican Republic' 3 times in my head before I actually read it out loud). I did not know where the DR was. Regardless, I sure was excited!
