The Mission Call --April 2008


On April 1st, Austin received the biggest April Fools joke ever when his sister and brother in law dummied up a fake mission call packet and sent it in the mail. Austin had been waiting for weeks in anxious anticipation to know where he would be called for the next 2 years of his life. So when he opened up this packet, believing it was the real thing and read that he was going to Bangladore India speaking Hindi and leaving in just 4 weeks from then he was absolutely giddy with excitement.....that was until he read the next paper which read, "You're the fool Austin!" OOOOH was he mad or what! Thankfully the real mission call came shortly thereafter and with many cell phones gathered around him so that all the family members who were not there could hear where he was going, he read to all of that he had been called to the Argentina, Buenos Aires South Mission speaking Spanish. It was a very happy moment indeed! Mom was in St. George with tears streaming down her face, Brad was also in St. George at his college apt, Dan and Natalie were in Indiana. All of us were thrilled. Austin said he had guessed it right that day coming home from work when Aaron asked him where he was going to be going and also in a dream that he had the night before.
