K. So, I just started this blog and decided it looked blan so I figured I would write about what has happened so far.
K.. don't hurt me. I am starting all the way back in Oct. of 2012. I love those days in life that sneak up on you and change your life forever-in a good way haha. October 6, 2012 was one of those days for me. It was General Conference and not gonna lie... I usually didn't pay attention very well.. especially for a Saturday Session but for some reason I was up that morning watching. I remember this day a little to well. I was watching with my mom and this is what I saw:
I had been up what? maybe 2-3 hours. How had I ended up here? I was lying on my bed reading these entries about how I really wanted to go on a mission some day. How I just felt it. Being a 14 year old I didn't get to deep but I recognized the feeling. I wondered over and over again, will that be something I can do when I am 21 cause I really don't know how life can be put on pause.
Wow. Well I feel I should take a second and thank 14 year old Kelsy for keeping a journal. and well 14 year old Kelsy, this is current Kelsy. You got your answer!
This was not the only decision that made me want to serve but it is definitely a day I will not forget in the process of everything. I felt it should be documented.
K. I am skipping to the Call. Almost a year later. August 14, 2013. It came. It finally CAME! I know every missionary has had THAT feeling. Overwhelmed with excitement, anxiousness, nervousness, happiness, all of it!
But then the best happens. You open that call and know that it was just for you. then the only thing that I was feeling was love. It's funny to me that a place that I had never, ever heard of was suddenly the thing I loved the most in life. I knew nothing about it and then within a matter of moments my heart was wanting to give Reynosa everything it had! I had a familiar feeling, like the one I had when I was 14.
