We have been called to serve a CES (Church Education System) mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the England Birmingham Mission. Our assignment is to work with the Young Single Adults - ages 18 to 30 years - teaching religion classes, supporting their activities, assisting in the day to day running of the institute, and anything else as directed by our Mission President. Our 18 month mission begins on December 27, 2010.

Two weeks left for preparations. Our Sacrament Meeting talks are over and yesterday was my last day at work. We have been blessed to work with some pretty amazing people who will always hold a special place in our hearts. So many changes - sleep is hard. Our calendar is full with Christmas activities, Grandkids' programs, goodbye time with friends and family, putting home affairs in order, finishing projects (quilts for grandkids), final medical appointments; and at some point we need to start packing. It is a wonderful life!
