We received our big white envelope from Salt Lake City on Monday, May 23, 2016. We drove to the Denver Temple and sat on a bench there where we nervously opened the envelope up together.
We spotted California Bakersfield Mission, July 4th, and Office Specialists. We were pleasantly surprised and felt peaceful and calm about it! We emailed Janel and family in London with the news. Then at 8:30 pm most of the family came over. Delane, Cesar, and Gaby joined us through FaceTime. Everyone was anxious. We decided to go around the room and let each person ask a "yes" or "no" question. We didn't get very far when Cesar asked, "Is it California?". Then they asked questions to narrow it down, and James finally read the letter. Everyone was excited! There were some questions and discussion. We had ice cream treats and everyone said goodbye.
