The Mission Call!!!!

Papers were a difficult story I eventually got everything together saw Bishop, same week saw President (Wednesday) and then I waited...

Turns out President only sent it 3 weeks later (busy man)... then they were waiting for official police clearance (cause I got another police clearance through a company - the process is the same but they didnt want it) - I thought that might be the case so went to Police station on 14/02/2013 and applied. Area Office then only sent my Bishop an email two weeks after saying they cant send it in, asked president to phone them about it - they said they just needed proof that I applied for it. So I had to go back to police station and get a letter saying I applied...... GASP.

BUT.... I Got My call on Tuesday 2 April - I went to Area Office to fetch it cause I couldn't wait any longer!!!

I got back from JHB at 5pm and had to wait another hour for family and friends to arrive... ok had to wait 1 Hr 45min!! (Which is an eternity when you have to wait for something like this!)

Close Friends which I like to call Family =D

Opening the Call

It's Definitely going to be a change of scenery!! Used to Mountains covered in veld or trees. Houses on hills. African Sunrises and Sunsets. Driving on the Left Side of the Road :| Haha.

But I am excited to meet these people I have been called to serve! I know this is where I am supposed to be. I Love this Gospel! 

Anxiously waiting for the next 5 Months to pass!
