Once the young missionary has that envelope in his/her hands, the real fun begins. Family is rounded up and the moment of anticipation comes to a head with the tearing open of the thick white envelope.
We are so stinkin' excited we can hardly contain ourselves. Part of that excitement stems from the fact that my husband also served his mission in Taiwan. He was in a different area than Josh will be serving in, but he learned Mandarin Chinese so they will be able to share that language with each other. (My hope is that the girls and I can also learn some Mandarin over the next two years. Fingers crossed that it will actually happen.)
All of this leads me to my song choice for today because ultimately, it did not matter where Josh was called to serve. We knew that he would go wherever the Lord needs him most. I am grateful that he will have this opportunity to share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with the Taiwanese people. It makes my heart do a little happy dance every time I think about it.
