WHAT?? Holy Cow, am I really called to go to the Philippines? I am so excited for this beautiful blessing and opportunity to serve the Lord, and the wonderful people in the Philippines! I report to the Provo MTC on Wednesday, October 9th 2013, and I will be out for the next 18 months. I am so thankful for my mission, and I want to make it the best 18 months of my life so far. :D Well, keep looking at my blog so you can read my letters and look at my pictures. Last of all, I want to thank my parents and my siblings for everything they have done for me, to help me prepare for my mission. I also want to thank all of my friends and other relatives that have influenced me, and have encouraged me to serve the Lord! THANK YOU!!!

The Call and Preparation
It was Thursday, June 13th when we got a big envelope in the mail. What could it be?? Could it be Johannah's mission call that we have eagerly waited for, for the past month? It was!! Well, I came home from work, we quickly ate dinner, got everyone on the phone and skype, made the predictions, and then....the big moment came, and I opened the letter and started reading it. After almost a few tears, I read, "Sister Coleman, 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 Philippines Legaspi Mission... You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Tagalog language."
