My Niece and Nephew are expecting to get their Mission Call in the mail in the next day or two. I have been thinking about them and receiving their call and should i be happy and congratulate them? Knowing what i know now and regretting waisting 2 years of my life when i could have done something different. Like get done with school sooner or joining the Military.
My other thought has been about receiving the Mission Call altogether and the process it happens. What i was taught growing up in the Church was, a group of the 12 Apostles and the Prophet himself sit around a table in the top of temple with a big projection screen on the wall. As the Photo and Name of the future missionary appears on the screen and ALL of the people present unanimously say where the missionary will go. Now knowing what i know now cant fathom this being true and it is probably more like a business decision.
So my Qustion is, has anyone heard or read anywhere how this process of getting a mission call really happens? I am just curious.
Thanks and have a great holiday
(My uncle asked me what i am going to tell my kids what Christmas is about if they ask. I said it is about Santa and Presents)
