Palmyra Temple, here we come!

We finally recieved our mission call and we are going to the Palmyra Temple for 18 months. Bill has found us housing already so we don't have to worry about that. We have started packing up the things we won't be taking with us so that the bedrooms downstairs will be free for my sister,Karen, to use while we are gone.

We are now waiting for the packet to come from the Temple Department giving us further instructions about what we will need to take with us. This morning we started using the suggested mission daily schedule and had an hour of personal study time and an hour of companion study time and have started studying the "Preach My Gospel" manual. It was a very productive two hours and got the day off to a great start. I look forward to doing it every day until we go into the mission home on August 23.

We have the option of living at home while we attend the MTC which will save us a few dollars each day. They are re-doing the Senior Missionary residence and all of the couples are going to a motel each night so we figured we might as well stay at home and save the expense.
