I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go

(Written by Mom)
When my husband and I heard where Victor was going, we went right to Google to search everything we could about the country. After we searched all of the information that we could possibly find , we started to get a little nervous. Excited but nervous. Our first thoughts were BUGS, HEAT and DISEASE. Yikes! The thought of sending our first Missionary off to a foreign country was a little nerve wrecking.  I was secretly hoping he would serve stateside :) But after a while, we got several confirmations that this is where our son is supposed to be.

Our first experience with this was....watching the Mormon channel and seeing a video of the dedication of the El Salvador Temple. When I (Mom) watched it, I cried. Seeing all of the Hispanic people and the cultures they were celebrating, reminded me of my husband's family in Mexico. I knew for sure that this is where Victor was supposed to be serving.

Later, I saw this picture of the entrance of the El Salvador Temple. Right away I noticed the Savior with the Latino children and it made me think of my sweet Latino kids. Once again, a sweet confirmation. I know that the Lord not only gives peace and comfort to our Missionaries as they prepare to leave, but also to their parents. What a blessing!

The Moment of Truth

                              No one was getting past the gatekeeper until the time was right.
                                                  Grandma D was so happy and proud!
                                                         Even Diego was excited!
                                  Great family and friends and most of the Cross Country team.

This was the day Victor opened his mission call. It was actually the first week of June when he opened it. We didn't have the blog up and going until then.

It's Here!

                                                                      So excited!
                                    We hid his calling from him while we all took pictures

Where Will He Go?

So many guesses
