Paraguay {Favorite Day 3/22/14}

With a surprise knee surgery on Thursday, I have been a little behind, but I feel like I may be able to catch up. Chris took Thursday and Friday off to help with Owen and that has been the greatest blessing.

I am finally doing my first Favorite Day post- So here it is!

On Friday of last week my brothers mission call came in. We had so many friends come over and give their guesses. We had dear friends (our second parents) on Skype awaiting the announcement. As soon as he read-

"Elder Jeffrey Petersen..you have been called to serve in the Paraguay, Asuncion mission".

I started bawling, mom and dad were crying, there was not a dry eye in the room. I felt so proud and I know my parents did too. This is the first missionary to go out of our family so it's a pretty big deal. Neither of my grandpas nor my dad served a mission.

It was such a great day, full of love and joy. We are so proud of you Jeff.
