The Call....

"Adam Robert Bushman is called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is assigned to labor in the Chile Santiago East Mission. He should report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. He will prepare to preach the gospel in the Spanish language. Your assignment may be modified according to the needs of the mission president..." President Thomas S. Monson
Wow! What blessings and adventures await him. He was so excited, so shocked. Adam is thrilled to continue in his Spanish studies and serve in the same place that his Grandma did, just a few years ago. Chile, here comes Elder Bushman!
Family and friends gathered together at 7PM last night for the big announcement. Dad gave a spiritual thought and Uncle Stephen gave the prayer. Adam smiled so big as he opened the envelope and didn't even use his letter opener! I cried when I heard the call...Santiago Chile East! So far away! Here are some photo moments...

"I'm going there!"
 "I have often said that one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work! If a missionary works, he will get the Spirit; if he gets the Spirit, he will teach by the Spirit; and if he teaches by the Spirit, he will touch the hearts of the people and he will be happy. Work, work, work-there is no satisfactory substitute, especially in missionary work." - Ezra Taft Benson
