The call was not to be opened until 9pm. An eternity for a man waiting to find his destiny. After a surprise delay of 20 more min due to ice skating practice, the time had finally come.
The words were read....
Dear Elder Lawson,
You are hearby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Honduras Tegucigalpa Mission!
Never had sweeter words been spoken in the Lawson household. Through the cheers and tears warm embraces were given and smiles didn't cease for the remainder of the night. I was to become a MISSIONARY.
