I hope they call me on a mission...



On Sunday I took mission pictures! Well actually Meagan and Jordan took them.
It was alot of fun! Even though Ive been waiting for this time for so long, for some reason it only started to feel real just then, when I stepped out the door in crisp white collar. Most of the time life never feels real, and then sometimes just for second, you suddenly feel so AWAKE and its only then you become so aware of how asleep you just were. This was one of those moments!
I know that the spirit calls you where you need to go, but maybe putting a little visual out there might not hurt. My roomate Aly took her mission pictures in a bushier part of her front yard and then she was called to be a bushwoman in Vanuatu.

So we tried to take pictures with lots of foliage in the background so they know I can survive in the wild and live off the land. I want so badly to be called to Japan or Africa, or some developing nation.But in the end every place is one of learning, growing and loving. Wild and exotic in their own way I guess. Never hurts to try though. I cant wait!

Here are the choices:



I dont know how to make this smaller





I thought if I choose this last one it must be a full body shot. I dont know why im doing this stance.

Ok I was so not picturing such normal pictures I full on had you in some head dress with a sari and a pitchfork... You made it sound so much more random. You are hilarious.
I REALLY miss you. I don't know if I'll be able to handle just talking to you... Oh I think I'm having heart palapatations!

Wow! You're really going? You are so awesome! I like the first and last one. The last one makes you look more adventurous though because of the ocean in the background.
