Embarking on an Adventure!

             The clock is winding down. Moments, days, now months have passed since I opened my call and found out that I would be serving in the England London South Mission. It's crazy to think how fast time has passed and that tomorrow I will be getting set apart to become a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The day after, on Wednesday, I'll fly out to the Preston England MTC. I am so excited to be able to go serve the people of England and I could not be more happier to embark on this new adventure. I know it's not going to be easy. There are days that I'm sure I'll question why I went on a mission, trials that I'll have to push through, and moments I'll feel like there's no hope but that is the great thing about a mission. I'll learn so much more than I have ever learned before and grow from the trials that I will come across. I'm grateful for the Lord for giving me this opportunity. I know He loves me and I know that not only may the people of England become truly converted but so will I. I'm thankful for all the many wonderful influences in my life that got me here today. I'll miss everyone-friends, family, and leaders but I know that it's only for a short period of time that I'll be gone so that others may be with their families for time and for all eternity. God be with you till we meet again!
With Love,
Sister Anya Michelle Burtis
