President Wilson Goes to Washington

We have some sweet news to share today. . .

My Dad has been called to serve as mission president of the Washington Everett Mission. We are so excited for Dad, Mom and Nathan and Emily who get to go too! They will begin their service on July 1. Dad will be responsible for nearly 200 missionaries. (A LOT more than I had guessed!)

The 2010-2013 missionaries of the Washington Everett Mission are pretty lucky! My Dad has so much wisdom, and my Mom is so compassionate; they will certainly do an amazing job. I am excited to learn from their example and experiences from afar.

My family will be living just a few miles from Kelly's brother's family, so we will get to visit both at once for the next few years. I certainly can't complain about visiting the Seattle area more often!

Wow!!! Great news. What a beautiful state to serve in. I can't believe it. Well, yes, I actually can. :) Your parents have so much love and wisdom and just so many things that will make their service unforgettable to the missionaries and members and people yet to become members...of that region. I'm thrilled!

My brother-in-law is also from Everette! It was so exciting when we found out. It's close enough to go visit a few times. :) Yipee!

I am really looking forward to getting Wilson missionary letters again. :) I can hardly wait to read about their wonderful experiences. The missionaries serving in the Everett Washington area are so fortunate.
