Thankful For Sierra, & A Mission Call Update.
Just wanted to give y'all a quick update on Sierra's mission call. Apparently there was some mixup in her paperwork, and due to a tiny medical condition it didn't get approved by the mission department. Now that the doctor approved it, and all has been rectified, her paperwork will be resubmitted, hence getting her mission call a little later. So for those of you who have been wondering about what's going on, and why it's taking so long, well there you have it. So because of that she probably won't get her mission call until after the holidays, or even well into the new year. That's okay because we get to hear her voice more often, and because we can't get enough of talking to her via FaceTime we'll definitely be overusing that until the day she leaves. Luckily we get to have her home in time for the holidays, but because she does have a job in Utah, and deferred her college plans she will be working around the holiday, but will be visiting us for a short time in December in time to take a family photo.
We are so proud of her, and for whatever reason the Lord has caused this delay I know it's all for a good reason. I am grateful to her, and for her patience in understanding why these things happen. Maybe it could have been a test to see if she was fully prepared, or really wanting to serve. Whatever it may be, she is anxiously waiting as patiently as possible to serve the Lord. She is an amazing young lady born at the right time, and for that I am eternally grateful. The Lord blessed us with an extraordinary daughter with a beautiful personality, and we are so thankful to have her in our life. She truly is one of a kind!
I'm just happy that her medical condition is nothing too serious, and as soon as she hears something I'm sure she'll post it on her blog before I do. So have a great holiday season, and we'll keep you updated as the weeks fly by. So looking forward to seeing her in a few weeks!
