(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,
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.
