When we arrived home from Utah, something very exciting was waiting... Kelly's mission call! I think we were all holding our breath while he opened the envelope.
"Dear Elder McClellan:
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 South Africa Johannesburg Mission..."
Kelly has been saying for the last couple of months that he wanted to go to Botswana. Unbelievable! That is the mission right below the one he will be serving in! He reports to the South Africa Missionary Training Center on Thursday, November 28, 2013. He is absolutely thrilled.
I want him to know how much I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to share his life. I am so happy for him, and proud of the challenges he has overcome. I will be praying for his success and baking cookies for the next two years!
