I'm going on a mission-

I got my call and I'm going to the Guatemala Guatemala City North Mission. I'm speaking Spanish. WOWEE! I had no idea where I was going. And that's where I'm going. I immediately associated it with the Oliphant's grandparents because they went on two Guatemala missions and they had these sweet jackets from there they wore to school in elementary.

And I'm not reporting to the MTC until March 24, so I'm going to Vancouver from Jan 14 to Mar 4, then I'll be back in MO to prep for another couple weeks. That's the plan. Exciting.

Congratulations! You're going to be a Spanish speaker (I'm so jealous) and the best missionary in the world! What fun w/the olympics & then out to the mission field! I love it. I love you. You're going to thrive there!
