We retired early with plans to go on multiple missions. As we anticipate the completion of this mission (March 11th), we are looking forward to another one - somewhere. We just don't know where yet.
Our missionary application for our second mission is in Salt Lake City, awaiting assignment. So once again we are experiencing "the wait", "the anticipation", "the excitement" and "the wonder."
And this time, we are also experiencing - "the appreciation." Our deepest appreciation to our Heavenly Father for the opportunity in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for seniors to have this extremely rewarding experience to serve a mission - any kind. Just look at all these smiling faces!

So depending on when we are assigned to begin our next mission, we plan to have around 6 months in the United States in between missions - time to visit all our children, our grandbabies (!!!), other family members, have a family reunion or two, and help out where we can. We miss our family tons!
Our request was to serve again in the Asia Area, Member-Leadership Support. But there are no guarantees!
What is YOUR guess? Where do you think we will go?
