I opened my mission call last January, so I have known that I would be going to the California Carlsbad Mission for quite awhile. It was pretty exciting for some of my friends who were there, who are from Carlsbad. They have promised to visit me once in a while.
As soon as my call came, I took a little road trip down to Southern California to check out the mission and talk to some of the missionaries. I think I'll have a great time. If the time would only go a little bit faster for the start of my mission.
