When our call came, we were taken back again. The call gave us about 3 weeks before we were to enter the MTC on December 15th. Wow, we were to be there the week before Christmas. That meant we had to finish all Christmas plans prior to entering the MTC. We felt that we were being tried. Were we really willing to serve the Lord when and where he wanted us to? We recommitted ourselves and went to the MTC as instructed. The spirit told us that we would not be sorry if we served this mission

There was a smaller than usual amount of senior missionaries there that week.
Our mission requires lots of meetings and more and more training and role playing practice. These meetings started the first week day we were back home. So the 3 days prior to Christmas was spent in meetings.
We do have a testimony that this call is from the Lord and we will find success in helping "hasten the work" if we will humble ourselves and let the spirit direct us. We are grateful that the Lord has trusted us with this calling. We pray to be able to serve diligently as the Lord would have us do.

Notice the men with spears.
Their job is to keep the alligators away.
