I'll go where you want me to go

Dear Sister Madsen,

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint. You are assigned to labor in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission

You should report to the MTC on Wednesday, July 13th 2011. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the English language.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I'm going to Minneapolis!!! I'm gonna freeze my hiney off! haha. I'm so so so so excited to serve the Lord in Minnesota! There's people there waiting for ME to teach them! I can't wait to get out there and share my testimony with my brothers and sisters!

It was like a kid at Christmas time, twice! the first time was when I got my call and the second time was waiting to see where I'm going. I came home from work and had to wait like 20 min for Mike to get there. I swear it was the longest 20 min OF MY LIFE!!! We had my brother (Steven), sister (Andrea), and two of my good friends (Josh and Megan) on the phones. When it came time to actually break the seal and read my call, my nerves were all over the place! I was shaking so bad! I got a little choked up and slightly teary eyed when I read where I was goin. Oh my goodness I'm just so dang darn excited now!!! I'm still kind of like "what the crap, what am I doing! this is crazy!" but it's a good crazy and I'm so happy that I'm doing it.


  1. im sure you will totally love it! make sure to use your blog let everyone know how your doing. we do that with ashley so everyone can read her stuff. congrats! your going to love it!

  2. Congrats! If you weren't called to Canada then Minneapolis is close enough!

    One of my favorite companions lives just outside of Minneapolis but still within that mission. I'll have his family watch out for you! (They tend to spoil the missionaries with awesome dinners).

  3. Well, you are definitely a light unto the world, dear young sister! Your enthusiasm to share the Gospel brings me hope for our younger generation. You are a beautiful Child of God, and I hope you won't get too cold in Minnesota!! Be sure to investigate the "culture" it'll be like being in a different country, to be sure, and there will probably be times when you'll ask, "Are you SURE that's English???" I love you, and look forward to many reports about your mission, so assign a good admin to your FB page to keep us all updated while you're gone! Congratulations Sister Madsen!!!!!
    Love -Sha
