Currently, it is less than a month until my mission begins and I am still in the state of mind that this is not really happening. However, I am in the midst of preparations for my mission. Not to long ago I got a text from my mother asking me what my favorite scripture is. My favorite scripture happens to be a scripture mastery - Doctrine and Covenants 25:12.
Doctrine and Covenants 25:12
"For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads."
Right after she received my text, she called me. She wanted me to know that I would be giving a talk on April 21st on that very scripture. She said I would be giving my talk on the day after I get my endowments taken out. At that point, we weren't even sure where I would be getting my endowments taken out. Everything was in pencil, ready to be erased to put in something else or for it to be written in ink. However, today my mom called me yet again to let me know that the Salt Lake City Temple sent confirmation for my endowment session. She also let me know that my mission president sent mom a letter talking about how excited that I was coming. Earlier on in this night, I saw that my dad had one as well.
