drew

After a long wait and much anticipation, my little brother Drew received his mission call. He opened his call at my brother Kirk's house, but all of my brothers and sisters were on the phone, as well as my parents (who woke up at 4:00 in the morning).

A few of you might know what this means to Drew, to my parents, and to my family in general. It's taken Drew a little bit longer to get here, but I know his experiences will make him a better missionary. We're so proud of him and his decision to serve a mission.

Congratulations to Drew! I am a big baby and have to admit that I got the beginnings of little tears in my eye when he was reading it. That is so exciting! Our thoughts and prayers will be with Drew.

A lot of people I know will swear that the best missions in the world are in Santiago. :) Personally, its my favorite city in all of South America. (And the only place where you can drink the water!) Congrats to Drew!!
