A mission call!

Eric has been called to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is going to the Russia St Petersburg Mission!!!  How exciting is that!!!  He didn't go Spanish speaking like all three of his brothers.  Pat went to Venezuela, Rick to Mexico, and Brian to Costa Rica, (I went to Chile).  So what a new deal to be headed to Russia!!!  Yea for Eric!!!!!  We're so happy for you because we know what an amazing experience this will be.  If you truly love the people, which I know you will, you will be happier than you ever thought possible.  It is so hard, but it is so worth it!!!!   I love you!

It was neat for my boys to hear you read that letter from the prophet, President Thomas S. Monson.  What a blessing.  Good job choosing the right, Eric.  You have no idea right now how many people this affects.  Imagine the people in Russia who you will touch.  You don't know them, and they don't know you, but God is preparing it all to come together.  Your actions have a ripple effect all around you, even reaching to those not yet born on this Earth.  It brings me to tears just thinking it!  God bless you!

(And you better do a good job!) *smile*
