We started the paperwork for this mission back in February, 2011. We thought this would give us a little more time to prepare than we had for our previous missions (less than a month). Well, what with medical issues, communication problems, and misunderstandings, our application didn't go to Salt Lake until about the 10th of May. After problems with the mail, we received our call on the 11th of July, asking us to report to the Mission Training Center on August 1! So we still have less than a month. At least we still have our winter coats and boots from our Sendai mission. So, we're leaving the 28th of July for Utah, planning to spend a few days visiting family. We are starting to get excited!
