It finally came! Tim is going to the Denver Colorado South Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He reports to the MTC on Sept. 2, 2009, so we’ll be heading back to the States for our next “home leave” towards the end of August.
We tried to have Kim and John on the phone when he opened it, but only got Kim’s voice mail. So we called my parents in Oregon, and they got to hear him rip the envelope open. (Sorry, K & J, but he was bouncing from foot to foot waiting the hour-and-a-half for Dad to come home, and he couldn’t wait any longer.) Anyway, Blaik says he was grinning ear to ear. I couldn’t see it–my eyes were closed with yet another attack of vertigo–but I could certainly hear it.
The Denver South mission includes the southern part of the city (and the Denver Temple), and goes out into the mountains: Grand Junction, Aspen, Vale, Montrose, Steamboat Springs, etc. And no, I don’t think he gets to go skiing! Parker (where the Ure family is), and Colorado Springs are in a different mission.
You’re welcome to say “hi” here, but Tim’s Facebook page will get to him directly. If you don’t have it, e-mail me and I’ll send it to you. (Not posting it here for unknown public consumption, sorry.)
