Missionary Daughter

It's been an exciting experience...... waiting...... waiting........ and waiting..... for the missionary call but it finally arrived.  It's fun to see the guesses about where she would go so many places to go spread the gospel, so many cultures, languages people.  Jessica is going to Barcelona Spain.  She leaves the 24th of July to the MTC in Madrid Spain.  I  know I am a little slow in writing about this exciting news so everyone knows already but for posterity I needed to express my Joy, my gratefulness and my feelings.
   Jessy has wanted to go on a mission for as long as I can remember.  She has always had a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  In school she has stood for the right.  She always asked to be excused if a teacher was showing a R rated movie in class.  She found friends who had high standards.  She invited friends to youth activities and shared the gospel with them.  She loved that Virginia-Rose went on trek one summer.  Jessy has always had the light of Christ so many people would stop me and tell me what a special little girl I had and that there is something different about her.  This was told to me by her great grandma Ward at a few different occasions.   She will be a wonderful missionary.  I'm glad to be her mom!
