hey mom! i wish i could be in sf with you guys, but things are great here, its starting to get really fun because im more used to the schedule and the daily routine of things. i am making a bunch of friends here, its so easy to talk to people and make good friends with them. im looking forward to two years from now too hahaha im mostly looking forward to two months from now when ill be out in the field!! i cant wait to find out where my first assignment is. also tell dad this, i just found out that mindoro (the small island included in the mission area) is a non anglo area, meaning they only send native philippinos (Filipinos) to that area :( looks like i wont get out to the ocean on my mission but im excited to be in the city and in the mountains! i love you guys and miss you all. tell everyone i say hi!!

The mission call...

video

It all started with the call.  Received mission papers on November 6, 2014 and opened the letter on November 7 to give time for Sammy to come home.  In forty days Henry would be reporting to the Provo MTC to start his 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in the Philippines Quezon City mission.
