The Public Announcement!

Two days ago we opened Jon's Mission call letter from Salt Lake. The only people who knew at this point were family in Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming and a very small select few.

We , Heidi and I, really wanted to have a special get together for Jonathan so he could make his announcement in front of a lot of people and have some fun with this.

We had 30 or more people show up to hear Jonathan read his call. Even my close friend Pat and his family showed up. It was great to see him and their new baby PJ!

Before Jon read his call, we had everyone guess where he might be going. I heard Brazil, Rome, San Diego, Europe, Germany, and a few others. Gary Johnson (Jon's Scoutmaster) changed his guess after betting Jonathan that it was outside the US and Jonathan said, I'll take that bet! lol  Gary then thought for a moment and said South Dakota! lol   Jon not acknowledging he was right then read his call. Just watch the video hahaha!

That was some look Jonathan gave Bro. Johnson.  lol

Thank you to all those who came and supported Jonathan on his call. We so appreciate the YM and YW organizations and our ward family and how much everyone supports each other. And thankyou Pat, babylyn, and PJ for coming to support Jonathan as well!

Congratulations again to Jonathan on his mission call to South Dakota and surrounding areas.  April 16th is right around the corner.
