Kevin's Excellent Adventure

Lucky Kevin--it has lasted from August 2010 until now. Yes, it's his Freshman year at BYU and that's why it's been such a good adventure. He has enjoyed his classes. He has enjoyed living in the dorm. He has enjoyed the friends he's met. He has enjoyed the . . . folk dance club? I'm pretty sure he has enjoyed living AWAY from home. He told me it has been a great year.

If you are an LDS reader, you will know from this picture what is next. Last week Kevin sent in his application to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Right now it seems like from the time the mission call is received in the mail until the day the missionary reports, about 4-5 months is elapsing. If that is true for Kevin, that means he'll leave in about August or September. He says if he could choose his own mission, he'd like to go to an English-speaking mission outside the United States.

He's making good decisions. He has changed his major and likes his new one. He's going to get a job this summer and see how much mission money he can earn before he leaves. He has nice friends. He's put himself in a good position.
