So my little sister decided to serve an LDS mission.
She told me about it one night in the kitchen after she surprised us all and drove home from St. George without telling any of us.
She submitted her papers in just over a month,
and before we knew it, this pretty white envelope was in her hands.
It was a little miracle that her call came the week that it did,
because getting two busy daughters to have the same weekend free is really tough in this family.
It came the week after conference, and I excitedly headed home after my shift Saturday morning.
The second I got home it was prep for the mission-call-opeining party,
people started showing up around 7,
and Dana opened the envelope at 8:30.
Yup! My beautiful little sister is going to serve her mission in PERÚ!
Best part? She's reporting to the Peru MTC!
So on February 26, 2014,
Dana Emily Brown
will board a plane at the Salt Lake International Airport
and she will go serve the Lord for 18 months.
(Though she's already talking about extending)
I'm so proud of my little sister!
