Our "Missionary Weekend" started off driving down to Provo on Thursday night to be there while my sister opened her call. Her little tiny apartment at BYU was PACKED with all of her friends, but it was fun to be there. She got her call and is going to Brazil! She reports to the Sao Paulo MTC (in Brazil) on May 20th. It was super exciting to be there and take part in that special event. The funny thing about her call is I got my mission call to Brazil too! That was before Jared decided he couldn't live without me and I got married instead, but it's cool that we got the same call. Different missions, but same country. Weird!! I know she's excited and she is going to be great!
Th rest of the weekend was spent in TX welcoming home Jared's sister, Jessie, from serving an honorable mission in Argentina. We, along with Alicia (Jared's sister) flew up the day before to surprise her at the airport. She thought that since we were just there for Christmas we weren't going to be able to come and boy was she surprised to see us there! It was so fun to welcome her home and be there for her momentous occasion. She loved her mission and has funky tan lines to prove it! She was released on Saturday afternoon and we spent the afternoon after that looking at pictures and opening up our presents. She gave a great talk in church on Sunday and it's always so amazing to see the spiritual growth of a return missionary. She spent a lot of time in poor areas of her mission, and so it was pretty funny to see her adjust back into the American life. Anyway, we had a great weekend and even though it was too short we're so glad that Audrey (my sister) is making such a good decision to serve the Lord and Jessie is coming home from that.
