The “official mission call” arrives Wed Nov 12th but we were not home to accept the delivery from Fed Ex. (Then we were away in Oregon for a few days.) Monday November 17 we were home and the envelope was in our hands. Finally, we were able to make the official announcement that we are called to be service in the Hawaii Honolulu Mission as service missionaries starting January 2015. We will be serving as the Directors of The Center for Academic Success at BYU-Hawaii.
On Friday November 28th we were set apart by Abbotsford Stake President Neil McKenzie; we met him in the small meeting room at the Vancouver BC Temple. Our friends Orleta June (Blaine WA) and Louise Joneson (Abbotsford BC) joined us.
We enter the Missionary Training Center, Provo Utah on December 29th, and fly to Oahu, Hawaii January 3, 2015.
We are excited to serve.
Elder and Sister McCollum
