Nathan has been called to serve in the Arizona Phoenix Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! He enters the Missionary Training Center on August 29th – that is in one week and one day, but who is counting? We thought that a blog would be a great way to keep friends and family informed about his mission.
Young Latter-day Saint men have the opportunity to choose to serve a mission for our church. It is a decision that is not made easily as it means putting school and life on hold for two years while they serve God’s children. About a year ago, Nathan decided to start attending a Mission Prep class. He knew for sure that serving a mission was what he wanted to do and so submitted papers in the spring. It was a awesome experience to watch Nathan open a letter from a prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson, calling him to serve in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. And so our journey begins.
