I am so excited to be finally able to serve a mission. It's like I have been waiting all my life for this time to come. I can barely wait, the excitement is overwhelming. I have submitted my online visa application, and am just waiting for my real visa to come. I am so glad that I am able to serve the people in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When I leave on my mission, I will be leaving my sister, Amber Salmon, in charge of updating and maintaining my mission blog. There will be pictures and emails to come.
