The Turketo boys have been called to serve!! They are going to the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo Missions – one to the East and the other to the West. They will be teaching in the Spanish language and report to the Provo, Utah Missionary Training Centre (MTC) on January 14th 2014 (which is about 12 weeks from now)!! I can’t tell you how proud I am of my babies – and just as equally I am overwhelmed with a profound sadness (a totally ‘nother blog) that they are leaving home and growing up!
As you do – the first thing we all did was look up where the Dominican Republic is and low and behold – we have almost been there!! What is sooo cool and extra special about their calling is that our family (with a group of friends) has just returned from a cruise in the Caribbean so the boys are already exposed to some of the weather and culture of those Islands and the people they may be meeting. To think we nearly never went on that cruise, but for some reason we went ahead and now we know why… Isn’t it awesome how Heavenly Father knows everything!
We know that our sons will have an awesome experience – and now the challenge is for Mum and Dad to learn Spanish - that is when this missionary Mama can stop crying long enough
Until the next time,
