Riley received his mission call to . . .

Riley received his mission call today!!!

We waited a whole hour to open it until Grandma Swensen could get home from Visiting Teaching in rural Paul, ID! She had it all figured out for us to use SKYPE so she could watch Riley open his call. (It was worth the wait).


Anticipation!


Posing with unopened envelope!


Opening the letter!


Reading the fine print! Then 'Googling' it!

"You are hereby called to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Albania Tirana Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 24 months. You should report to the . . . Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, October 21, 2009."


Grandma looking on as they look for the country on the globe. Riley & Austin trying to steady the globe and position it just right in front of the webcam for Grandma to see.


Riley taking a closer look himself at where he will be going.


Looking up more info on Albania!!! "WOW!!!" Those were Riley's exact words when we asked him what he thought.
