My Acceptance Letter

Dear Brothern,
I gladly accept the call to the Lima Peru North mission with enormous enthusiasm. I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to serve the Lord in the great county of Peru. I will serve the Lord with all my heart, might, mind and strength, and I know that if I do so the Lord will see it fit to guide me with the spirit. I plan to prepare diligently by reading the Book of Mormon again and reading Jesus the Christ. After receiving my call I reread the conference talk given by Elder Ronald A. Rasband during the Priesthood session, the talk explains how missionaries are given their calls. That talk has helped me gain a greater understanding and love for members of the twelve, and you the First Presidency. Those men are truly inspired by God, just making my call all that more special to me. I have a strong testimony of the gospel and I will strive to let myself be a tool in the hands of God. Waiting with unbound anticipation and reverent excitement. Jaren

  5. I can see I'm not the only one who has benefited from this post but I thought I'd add my thanks anyway. It's nice to have people share not only their experiences but their knowledge and assistant to those of us going to serve. Thank you for your help.
