Emily got back from her horsey ride just in time to head out for her soccer game.
And......the most exciting news of the weekend happened Saturday evening when Jordan received and opened his mission call!!
¡Me han llamado para servir en el Cuernavaca, misión de México!
(I've been called to serve in the Cuernavaca, Mexico mission!")
Departure Date: January 21, 2009
Jordan is super excited, to say the least. He's been working hard and waiting for this time for awhile now. Cuernavaca is in southern Mexico, about 1 hour southwest of Mexico City. The mission is quite large and extends out to the coast, including 350 miles of coastline. The city's name means City of Eternal Spring. We've already started reading all about it, and the average temperature year round is 77 - 86 degrees. If he serves right in this city, sounds like it could be really rough. :)
I'm so proud of Jordan, though, and know he is going to be a great instrument in the Lord's hands.
