Dear Sister Ballif:
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
You are assigned to labor in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission.
Minnesota was so unexpected… and it’s so right for me.
I could not be more stoked!
Also, after some extensive Googling, it appears I will be joining the magical land of cabins, lakes, flannel, historical buildings, Paul Bunyan folklore, stunning scenery, vintage Americano lovin’, no cell phone service, and guess what? Alllll kinds of immigrants from Southeast Asia, called the Hmong.
My mission extends up into Canada, and branches over into Wisconsin.
I get to pack thermal underwear and I’m already doing all kinds of perfecting on the accent, doon-cha knowwww. Imagine the dance party possibilities with hymns in hand and thermal underwear about my bod.
BUT HI MY MISSION HAS A SPOON BRIDGE THIS IS NOT A DRILL
Hahahaha, I LOVE spooning. Minnesota and I have sooooo much in common.
I have NEVER been happier. I leave May 15. I am so eager to help and love people, in any way they need. I know anything I am able to do will be because of Him, and not because of me. I am just so lucky to be a part of it. Let’s do this thing! Youuuu betcha. (I already speak fluuuuent Minnesotian. THANKS.)
