dear sister horton


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 CANADA, TORONTO  mission | you will prepare to preach the Gospel in the Spanish Language you should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday June 4, 2014  


 CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? i am beyond excited. words can't express the joy i felt when i read where i will be serving the Lord for the next 18 months. I AM SO HAPPY! when i read the call, it just got better and better. i can't believe i am going somewhere so amazing, so soon, and speaking an entire new language. 

my heart is full of gratitude! these are just a few of the pictures... and boy was i filled with so much emotion. i couldn't even contain myself. my parents + family + everyone that was there were all SO happy for me as well... many tears were shed! OH, and yes, that is Tyler standing next to me. in a cardboard cut out :) is he not the cutest? i am cheesy and i love it. my love was basically right there with me!

the best part, was Tyler already knows where i am going and actually got to SEE me open it thanks to his ward mission leader and the advance technology we have {aka, filming it + uploading it to dropbox!} PLUS, his leader filmed his reaction and i got to see that too. above all, i am eager and giddy and OH SO EXCITED!! excited and thrilled to bless the people's lives in Toronto. it will be the greatest time of my life. i just know it!

oh, and here is a cute video my dad put together of the whole thing!



thank you so much to everyone that came and for all the love and support. i am truly blessed. 

TORONTO, CANADA HERE I COME!

  6. Congratulations! Two of my good friends are there right now! They're best friends and they're actually currently companions! In fact, here's a video of one of them getting his call read to him:

    We were in Disneyland when the call was read to him. The boy who hugged him afterwards is his best friend who got his call to Toronto a few months earlier.
