Austin's mission call!
On December 23 we received the letter in the mail we had been waiting for!!!! It was a large white envelope addressed to Elder Austin Michael Lynn...we had only been waiting 2 weeks since we had submitted his papers so we were a little surprised to have received his call so quickly! We waited until that evening for him to open the envelope and find out where he had been called to. There was a lot of anticipation building up to it. He opened the envelope and read his call to Korea Seoul South Mission! To report to the MTC in Provo, Utah on February 26! What???!!! That is only 8 weeks away and Korea! Wow! We were surprised and thrilled and a bit overwhelmed. Austin will be an amazing missionary. He is ready to give the Lord his all and I know it won't be easy for him or us (esp. his poor mom who is going to miss him tons!) but, I know 100% that this is what he should be doing. I can't think of a better way for my 18 year old son to spend the next 2 years of his life than dedicating to the Lord. We are so proud of the young man Austin has become.
