like drinking life from a fire hose

That's what it's felt like around here lately.
It's all good, none of it bad.
We got a phone call from our good Stake President last night, telling us that Yonder's mission call HAS BEEN ISSUED.  Friday May 21st.  There are people who already know where he will serve.  That important assignment will surely be winging its way toward our mailbox in the next few days.  Now we're all just waiting for the magic envelope to arrive.  CRAZY!!, I tell you!  It's a feeling I can't put into words.  If my camera was functioning properly, I'd post a picture of the gigantic map hanging on our kitchen wall, with post-it tabs on it representing the guesses of where we all think he might be serving his mission for the next TWO YEARS.  Get your guesses in... the time for speculation is coming to a close.
Where do YOU think he might go?

Hmm, I think I'm in a statistically good position if I say Brazil. I'll also throw out Sacramento.

I think he will get called to Ghana like my brother-in-law. They will be companions! :)

Germany, maybe.

Another comment--When we were in Germany in 2002, we met a group of missionaries and their President and his wife. Can't remember where they were from. They had a very hard time with the German language. It was fun to meet them.

I'm voting for Micronesia but I don't even know where it is.

I think it's dumb they (not specifically President A.) tell you it's in the mail. Isn't it more fun to find it in the mailbox? I'm old fashioned that way.

He'll be blessed above all measure if he goes to Australia Sydney North. But I'm a little biased.

Did you hear the talk during Priesthood session about how the calls are issued? It was awesome.

Canada Montreal Mission??? That's part of our mission and then he'd get a true taste of the Great White North :)

I told him last week during our lesson that if he goes outside the US it will be to either Germany or England.
In the US? I choose Texas.

My guess is Mexico and to go one step further I'm guessing that he'll have to report to the MTC at the end of July or early August.
