I applaud Ivy's ability to choose prompt words. Once again, I could draw on personal experience to come up with a Six Sentence Story. This week's prompt: Letter.
Our family gathered around the telephone in the living room, and assured the oldest son on the other end of the line that he was on speakerphone.
He read, "Dear Elder_______, You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Japan Tokyo mission."
Cheers erupted, and emotions ran high, as we realized that our son would be serving his mission in the same country where John had served.
Though both oldest son and John have completed their missions now, remembering the opening of the mission call letter still brings a thrill.
Thanks for missions, no matter where served.
