A Letter from the Stake President

(Okay, it is actually an e-mail, but letter sounds better)

“Dear Sister Markland,
Your application is in Salt Lake at the missionary department. I enjoyed and appreciated our interview. Thanks for your desire to serve, and your worthiness and preparation that will make you a very effective missionary.
All the best,
President Olson”

I am so glad that everything worked out and that this was finally, FINALLY able to get sent off. Mashallah! Now, there’s just the waiting. Also, I just had a feeling, perhaps akin to impending doom: I am so scared to go on a mission! Holy cow, this is actually happening. I’ve been waiting and waiting and because of all that waiting, I didn’t have time to really pause and process the implications. . . now that I have, I am scared. I know that I need to go and that it is the right thing, but I am not sure that I have ever been so scared in my life. It is time for some serious praying.


About gwenogjones

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving for 18 months in the Korea Busan Mission (as of September 7, 2011). I have a fanatical obsession with Snape and the Harry Potter series (in that order), I recently graduated from university majoring in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations (Arabic). Prior to this major, I was working towards a degree in Jazz Saxophone performance; ergo, I love music. I also love reading, writing, painting, spending time with my friends, playing soccer, watching movies...the usual types of things early 20-somethings enjoy.
