Marty's Mission -- Fukuoka, Japan

Everybody is blogging again and in order for me to check out their posts, I come to my blog to link to theirs. And the photo of all of us in green is a constant reminder that St. Patrick's Day was a long time ago. 

And since we are still on cloud 9 from last week, it's a good time to update news and photos.

Marty got his mission call. I get teary every time I watch this video.

And we found out that Papa Marty spent 18 months in Sosebo, Japan while serving in the US Navy on a submarine during the Korean War.

Marty's call came a week earlier than we expected (because several people told us they don't assign calls the week of Conference. Apparently they do). So we did some last minute shuffling of flights to enjoy and celebrate opening the call and still make our trip to Albuquerque to spend time with Gram and Papa Shaeffer and go to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.
