The Long Awaited Delivery

This beautiful orange, white, and purple truck pulled up in front of our house today. Our daughter Kellie was visiting and yelled, "A Fed Ex truck just pulled up." Completely unbecoming of a future Mission President's wife, I started screaming and dancing as I held the letter in my hand. I'm positive the driver could hear Kellie and I as he walked up to the door.
Embarrassing? Yes! Exciting? Yes, Yes, Yes!
We waited until evening to open our letter. The wonderful news is that President Tye and I will preside over the
Philippines Cavite Mission.
What a thrill it was when we found out that we would be opening a new mission in the Philippines.
Immediately I was so calm - like the spirit was bearing witness to me that Cavite was exactly where we were supposed to be. We quickly checked out Google Earth to see where Cavite is located. President Tye served in the Philippines Manila Mission between the years of 1975 - 1977, but he spent most of those two years in the northern part of Luzon. Cavite is south of Manila and will be a new adventure for both of us.
Above all else, we are thankful to our Heavenly Father for the trust and confidence He has in us. We can't wait for the opportunity to witness and be a part of the hastening of the work. What a thrill it will be to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement.
We know we will love the Filipino people with all our heart and we are very anxious to meet the missionaries who will bring blessings upon this area.
