Zach had been checking the mailbox daily for two weeks for his letter that would include the mission call. Guesses were made for the location of the mission, but in the end I was right! It finally arrived on Thursday, May 13th! He was thrilled to find out that he would be staying in the states (so was I), and would be speaking his native language, English. Zach's mission call was to Riverside, California, and he would be entering the Missionary Training Center (MTC) on July 21, 2010 (just a few months after turning 19 and graduating from high school). Family and friends were immediately notified and the day was cause for much celebration (see picture below). Then it set in, we had merely two months to plan and organize a 19 year old kid for his entry into the adult world and for two years on his own. Then the work really began, for me, his mom.
