Then came the waiting....
We were both freaking out. So he opened his call first... and DUN DUN DUN... he is going to Santiago Chili! Awesome!
And then it was my turn.
(Somewhere there is a video, but heck if I know how to upload it)
Mom and Dad trying to figure out their fancy technology :) Well... mainly Mom.
Luckily my dad cut open the envelope, because had I done it, it would have been a big, sloppy, skiwampis mess (I think he knew that, which is why he did it :).
Then I read it and I have been called to serve in the...
Honduras San Pedro Sula West Mission Spanish speaking. I will report to the Mexico MTC.
(Here is the video, I couldn't figure out how to upload it)
Wait what? South America... Not what I was expecting, or what anybody was guessing, but I didn't care! I was so excited (and am so excited).
San Pedro Sula is the dot with the red box around it near the top left.
There are also lots of other cool places in Honduras like Las Vegas and Santa Barbara. Yep. That is right.
It is official!!
The cool college kids :)
Ahhhhh.... definitely my paradise. It has been a joke in my family that I turn the heater on when it is 70 degrees outside. Oh wait... it isn't actually a joke. That is actually what I do. There is also about 90% humidity. I think I will absolutely love it.
I am also addicted to the ocean; I am very excited to be so near it. Although I won't be able to get in it, just knowing I am so close to it will give me warmth and comfort.
After doing some other quick google searches, this is what else I found out.
1. It has been given the title of the most dangerous city in the world (http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2013/04/most_dangerous_city_san_pedro.html)
2. It is the murder capital of the world
3. Originally the Mayans lived there
4. The currency is Lempira
5. It produces a lot of bananas, coffee, sugar cane, tobacco, and forestry.
6. The majority of people are "mestizo," or of African descent
So yep! This is where I will be spending 18 months. I am super duper excited :)
