It's been really interesting watching so many of my friends report to the MTC... I counted recently and I have upwards of 20 friends out on missions, though the number is steadily rising and will likely hit 30 really soon. I am so incredibly proud of all the elders and sisters I know who are out serving or preparing to serve. And I can't wait to serve the Lord just as they are!
As I prepare to leave in just 14 days, people ask me all the time if I am nervous, excited, or both. The truth is, it depends on the day. I am ridiculously excited to go and pin that name tag on my chest and serve the Lord and tell people all about the gospel!
