The Call

Alright everybody, here it is.

I have been called to serve as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the....

Washington Vancouver Mission!

I report to the Provo MTC on January 22, 2014, and I am STOKED! It's amazing how the Lord works. Obviously, He knew where I was supposed to be going, and He knew that I needed to know quickly. He also knew that I hate hot weather. ;) He is sending me somewhere cool and rainy. Two of my favorite things! I love knowing that there is someone in Washington that can only be reached by me. Someone I am destined to help. I already love the people of Washington, and I am so eager to get there and teach the Gospel!

It Has Arrived!

My name is Nicole Guilott, and my mission call is here! I just barely had my Stake President interview this past Tuesday and my Stake Pres officially submitted my papers on Thursday. How great is this: My call was ASSIGNED on Friday!!! The day after my papers were submitted! I have been so excited all week long, while also nervous that maybe the speed of things was a mistake and my Bishop was just reading my status wrong. However, today my call arrived in the mail! It was no mistake!

I will be opening my call this evening and I can not wait to find out where it is I will be serving the Lord for the next 18 months! I know that wherever it is the Lord is sending me is exactly where I am supposed to be. I had to post a preface right now, because it's all I've been thinking about all day long and I have to talk about it for a minute. I want to let you know that I know without a shadow of a doubt that this church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the true church. Jesus Christ atoned for my sins and I know that because of Him and because of my faith, I can return to live with him and my Heavenly Father again someday. I am overjoyed to have the opportunity to serve a mission and bring people to the knowledge of Christ, overall bringing them to happiness. I love this Gospel, and I am so excited to open my call tonight!
