matt's mission

Elder Loper has hereby been called to the Massachusetts Boston mission, Haitian Creole speaking.


I originally wrote a very lengthy blog based on Matt's mission call. Then I realized...people probably don't want to read a long blog about what I was feeling when Matt opened his call. Suffice it to say...I can't remember ever being more excited about anything. And now that the shock has worn off for Matt...I'm not sure he's ever been more excited about anything.

The upcoming months are going to be some of the most difficult he has ever experienced, I believe. But I feel confident that they will also be some of the most rewarding, the most exciting, and the most spiritual of his life. They will be months (and years) that he will never forget for the rest of his life. He will reflect on them every day as his love for the people and for the Lord grows greater than he ever thought it could.

I am so proud of Matt, his life, and his decisions, and I support him with my whole heart. :)
