I Hope They Call Me On A Mission - The Time Starts Now

Seth's Senior Picture

The process of going on a two year full time mission starts long before the actual day the missionary is dropped off at the MTC.  I decided to start this missionary blog from the very beginning.  I am the mom who will be updating all of Elder Hackleman's life for the next two and a half years.  On Sunday, April 13th Seth turned in the final portion of his mission papers to the stake president.  He is officially finished and now the waiting begins.

The papers will now be sent to Salt Lake City to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints headquarters.  Within the next two weeks or so, members from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will look over his application and through inspiration, determine the destination as well as the departure date.  This is a time filled with so much wonder and anxiety.  Where and when is on everyone's mind.

Since there is so much anxiety and anticipation swirling around, we have decided to make a fun little game out of it.  We have all of our friends and family submitting their guesses on where they think Seth will go on his mission.  Everyone gets to pick two places, one in the United States and one foreign.
