The letter arrived today with our mission assignment. We wanted all our children to be around so we decided to meet at Jared's home. Jared's family and Ashley was there. Christian was at work but on the phone, Jason and his family skyped in, Allison was also on the phone from work and Gary was at home on the phone. We were so surprised. That wasn't even on our radar. We got to see what the mission home looked like and where we would live. I learned that Wisconsin has a heavy German influence. We also learned they have very cold winters. What an adventure we are about to begin.
