June 22, 2014  My First Post

Today is my final day to attend church in my Ward.  This week will be full of decisions on what to take to Australia and packing my suitcase.  There were times in the last couple of months that I thought this day was never going to get here.  I report to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) a week from tomorrow and it will be a whirlwind from there on.  I am excited to begin this next 18 months.  I look forward to meeting all the missionaries in the Australia Brisbane Mission and the people of Australia.  Not so excited about the spiders.  I understand one of the deadliest spiders lives in Australia but hopefully not in the city.  I will be shaking my closed toed shoes out before I put them on.

I will miss my family, friends and ward members.  I am so grateful for all the support I have been given these last five years since I returned from Poland.

I am not sure just how often I will be posting but at least monthly and hopefully more often.  I hope those of you who pull it up will be able to enjoy my experiences with

Next update will be from the MTC......
