The BIG day came on April 3, 2014. I was shocked to find his mission call in the mailbox. We were told that it wasn't assigned and would not becoming for a couple more weeks!! Hunter had a track meet that night and we quickly started to spread the word that he would open it that night after the race. His youngest sister was having a difficult time waiting!
The time was set for 8:00 PM at our house to open the envelope. We put up a large map of the world and had everyone who showed up make there guess. I lost count after over 40 teenagers piled into our home one after another. It was a great testament to what amazing friends our son has made over the years here in our hometown. With short notice, they all dropped what they were doing and came to support Hunter.
He leaves on July 9, 2014.
