Mission Call

After much waiting and anticipation, Alec finally got his mission call in the mail.  Both Devin and Tristan had received their call a couple of weeks earlier, despite the fact that Alec turned in his papers a couple of weeks before either one of them had. Alec and I were getting a little nervous, however Steve was not. He knew Alec would be called as soon as they knew where he should serve. Alec wanted to wait until 7:30 that night so that his Family Home Evening group, at BYU Idaho, could be present to watch him open it (this was tradition). Amy and I face timed from Stanford Hospital where Amy was getting her infusion, while Steve and Rachel were face timed from home. Alec commented that it "burned" in his hands as he opened it.  He showed self control by starting at the beginning of the letter instead of jumping down to the line where it announced his mission, which was...Honduras Comayaquella Mission. He was beaming, as you can see from this picture. I was shocked, Steve was elated, and Alec completed blown away. He is suppose to report January 7th to Mexico City MTC.
