Called to Serve!

Mike's Mom and Dad decided last year to serve a mission for our Church. So in there papers went, but during the time of preparing all the necessary information for all the papers, Pam found out she had breast cancer! Much to their dismay, this postponed their plans to serve as soon as they wanted to. Pam was seriously amazing, as she always is! She was so positive and put her strength and faith in the Lord that everything would work out for the best! She did everything she was told and had some pretty awesome experiences with her family and knew that the treatments she chose were the right ones for her! As to all of our surprise--(but not really) she fought that cancer right out of her body in 3 months, got the approval of her doctors to serve a mission and still got those papers in only a couple months behind schedule!
We had about 50 people over to our house to open the anxiously awaited "mission call." Everybody had put in their guess, but nobody guessed this one!! Check out Pam's face as she opened it to find out she was called to serve in the Fresno, CA mission! They report to the MTC on the 4th of July! Gotta love that expression--priceless!!
The dreaded MTC---Luke had an especially hard time saying good-bye to his Mom and Dad!!!

They made it!! Here's Pam and Wes in front of the Fresno, CA temple.
Good Luck!! We Love you and miss you Elder and Sister Jones!
