And, so, I'm serving a mission! Now that I made the decision, I am so excited to serve! I know that it is exactly what Heavenly Father wants me to do and I'm going to give it my everything. The mission application process was kind of long and tedious. There is lots of paperwork to fill out, a couple doctor/dentist appointments, and a few interviews.
I met with my stake president (the area church leader) for my final interview. I was kind of nervous going in, praying to Heavenly Father that I would receive confirmation that serving a mission is the right thing to do. I received exactly the confirmation that I was looking for! My stake president said a lot of things I needed to hear to ease some of my worries. He encouraged me to do my very best then put it in God's hands. It was really a great interview and a very spiritual experience. My papers are all submitted and I should receive my mission call within a few weeks.
