Erin and I submitted our mission papers together on Sunday, February 8, 2015. I had my interview with my stake president that afternoon and while I was still in his office he got on his computer and submitted my papers! As soon as both of our papers were submitted, Erin and I ran outside while the sun was still up to take some pictures announcing the news!
We accidentally matched that day – black and denim 🙂
At this point in the process I had my heart set on Portuguese-speaking Africa – Africa because it’s my dream and Portuguese because I already had a background in the language from living in Brazil (plus my dad spoke Portuguese on his mission, so I thought it would be cool to be able to speak fluently with him). Little did I know what was in store for me!
