jeffy got called on a mission!

My little brother Jeff opened his mission call this morning, right when the mailman delivered it (little fricker, didn't even wait for a mass of people to congregate around him for a dramatic opening!) And he is going to be spending the next two years of his life preaching the Gospel to the people of.....

drumroll please.....

PARIS, FRANCE!!!!!!

We are so, so, so, so, so, so excited for him! Paris is where my mom served her mission back in the day, so it's pretty cool that my brother gets to go to the same place. Plus we all know I'm a major francophile, so I couldn't be happier for him. When he gets back we'll have to have a triple French conversation of me + my mom + Jeff! Except by that time I will have forgotten everything while Jeff will be completely fluent. Oh well, c'est la vie, n'est-ce pas? Anyway, happy feelings all around here. He is going to be an awesome missionary!

how exciting! You'll have to teach him all about how to behave :)

Ooh, plus he's going to get to serve under a French mission president, I am so excited for them to come in! The Posnanskis were in my home ward when I was a kid and they are AMAZING. He'll love them.

SWEET! I bet you're all super duper excited! And Cameron didn't wait for anyone either, he just opened it right when it came, in front of my parents. Then my mom called me at work and told me. I was upset. Haha.

Elder Jeffrey George! That's so cool. And as soon as I read it I thought "that's where Diane went!" I remember when Jeff was blessed in the Arlington Ward.
