My mission application photo.

I served my mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ten years ago. In thinking back on those life-changing two years that I spent in the Philippines, I have thought that it will be a fun way to remember my experience by reviewing my journals, letters, and other materials from that experience over the next two years. I’ll be reviewing them “as they happen,” and I’ll post at least weekly about what I’m remembering and share some of my journal entries and letters with you.

My goal in this is to help others learn about what a mission is like, why I served one, how this experience shaped me as a person, and why the Church and more importantly the Gospel of Jesus Christ means so much to me.
