Got our misson call

We had always talked about that someday....that day far off when we would join the ranks as a senior missionary couple.  But, hey, no worry... that day was forever away.  Then the years scooted by and that time came closer and closer and just like retirement,, extra weight, and white hair, it was upon us.  The  time had come to put up or shut up.   Sooooo, we finally took the giant step and sent in our mission papers...Where will we go?  We had mentioned to the Stake Pres. that we would love to go to a church historical site.  Well the call came and it was historical for us all right....we are going to the Adriatic North mission with focus on Serbia.  Serbia?? Yes, we had heard of it but exactly where is it?  We have since found out much more about this country and many people tell us how much they love Serbia.  We still have much to learn and still have some trepidation about the unknown.  That's a lie, we have ALOT of trepidation but we have placed it in the Lord's hands and will 'go forward in faith'.
