After receiving my call to Arkansas I started to do a little research. I found out that apparently Arkansas can get a lot of rain. I was thrilled because that meant I didn't have to leave behind my favorite pair of shoes...my rain boots! I pretty much based my entire mission wardrobe around these red boots. So Arkansas better get some serious rain these next 18 months!
Many of you are checking in on me and asking how I am feeling. I can assure you all I am doing just fine. This isn't the easiest thing for me to do , and naturally there are a lot of nerves that come from embarking on such a journey as this, but I know this is the right thing for me to do.

I get to go preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Arkansas, and I absolutely can't wait.
