So I have my call. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was when I opened my mailbox and the letter was sitting there. I have to let you know, I am honored to have been found worthy to serve a mission for the Lord. Honored to see "Sister Ellen Rose Ervin" on the very front of the call. I don't think anything has ever made me more proud in my life. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt I know this is the right place for me. I can feel it.
"Dear Sister Ervin:
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Italy Milan Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months.
You should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Italian language.
