My bro is going to Mexico!!

My brother, Stefen, just got his mission call this past week to Guadalajara Mexico! He is leaving on August 27th. He was in Moab last week when it came, and because the rest of us were going to be in Orderville when he got home my mom hid it. We got together last night when everyone got home and had dinner for my sister's birthday and when we finished eating my mom gave him his call. He was mad that we didn't tell him it came so he went in the other room and opened it and then came back in and told us where he was going. I think he was a little bit shocked that he was going to a Spanish speaking mission because he took Spanish in High School and wasn't a big fan of it. He will be great and I am excited for him to serve, but sad he will be gone for 2 years. It has been so awesome to see him get closer to the spirit and to be so excited about going out into the mission field. He has gone out on his own and bought shoes and a whole bunch of other stuff he will need. I think he's amazing and I know he will be a good example to others as he serves.
