On Halloween I received my mission call to serve in the Illinois Nauvoo mission! It came as a total surprise, and I couldn’t contain my excitement. I feel honored and blessed to be able to have the opportunity to serve as a representative for Jesus Christ, to bring people to Him. The church is true, I promise!

“No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited ever clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.”                 ~Joseph Smith
