Called to Serve

After patiently waiting...Haley's call came on Friday, November 2nd.

She greeted the mail man at the mail box, with his delivery in hand.
She screamed and jumped up and down as she recognized the big white envelope.
The mail man continued down the street shaking his head and laughing!

Clark had a football game at 7 PM, so we sent out word that Haley would be
opening her call at 10:30 PM at our house after the game.

We scrambled to get donuts, set out the guessing map and to gather chairs,
all before Mountain View's first big playoff game.
(Sadly, we lost to Desert Mountain)

 Just minutes after receiving her special delivery!

Haley was too excited to remember to look at the postage,
 so Cassidy made sure to cover it up with white duct tape.
(supposedly, if the postage is $1.90, it means a foreign call, which held true for Haley)

 Friends and family took turns guessing where Haley would serve!

 The house was PACKED with awesome friends, family, church leaders and co-workers

 Thanks to Bennett for video-taping, Kristin for the pictures,
and Cassidy for holding all the cell phones connecting out of town friends and family.

The pictures tell the rest of the story...!!!!!!!!

 Peru Lima West Mission
 Spanish speaking
Reports directly to the Peru MTC on April 10, 2013

 Bishop and Sister Wright of the YSA 3rd Ward

 It was an unexpected blessing that BFF Makaylee just happened to be flying home
 this weekend from BYU and arrived minutes before Haley was to open her call!

  3 people guessed she would serve in Peru!

Life is good and we are so grateful for Haley's choice to serve a mission!
We know that she will be blessed as she serves and loves the people of Peru!
