The Call . . .

What an awesome day to receive that big white envelope in the mail! Elder Garrett Bradley McEwan received such an envelope on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 (Mom's birthday!).
Many family and friends anxiously waited ALL DAY for the call to be opened. When the time finally arrived, our home was overflowing with love and support for Garrett and his upcoming experience. There were also many on the speaker phone to hear where he had been called.

Elder Garrett Bradley McEwan had been called to serve in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo West Mission. He will report to the Dominican Republic MTC on Thursday, August 1, 2013. The letter was signed by President Thomas S. Monson, President of the Church! What amazing adventures are in the future of Garrett and our whole family.
As Garrett read his call, he shouted to his great friend, Jake Curtis, "Hey, dude! We're gonna be companions (Jake has been called to serve in the Dominican Republic Santiago Mission). Now we begin the next step in preparing . . . passport, immunizations, VISA, shopping, shopping, and more shopping!
