Michelle Pack had set up a system on the computer so that all of our children could watch us open the envelope so we set it up for 5:15 p.m. at Michelle and Bryan's home. Ronnie and Ferris also came and we contacted our 4 children (Kevin, Kirk, Heather, Kristina) and their spouses to go on line. However, when Michelle turned it on they could only see a black screen. So much for modern technology. So we got our cell phones out and put everyone on speaker phone and then Don and I opened the letter together. Imagine our excitement and joy when it read that we had been assigned to serve in the New Zealand Wellington Mission. We are to report to the MTC on August 22nd. Kristina was on the South Island of New Zealand for study abroad through Cal State Long Beach so Don and I went there before she came home. However, we have never been to the North Island so we are excited to serve the people of New Zealand. We will serve in the Family Records Preservation Department. We will work from 8 to 5 and then do whatever the Mission President wants us to do. We feel truly blessed.
