The Call

After the application was submitted and the branch president and stake president and forwarded, we began the wait to see where we would be called. Our branch president told us after a few weeks that the application said "completed and call made" so we expected it that next week. It didn't come, though, or the week after that; we began to think it was lost, but of course, it finally came. Everyone was waiting anxiously including our kids and grandkids. The call finally arrived on August 26 and we went to Dan's house to open it that evening. The rest of the family all assembled via the Internet.
Frank let me open the envelope and I immediately turned it to the screen so everyone could see. We were all excited to read that we had been called to serve in South Africa in the Johannesburg mission.
