New Chapter


Its official, Im now Elder Flickinger. I'll report to the Missionary Training Center tomorrow night after a full day of flying. I gave my farewell talk last Sunday about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My father gave a great talk on why we serve missions and because it was Mothers Day my mother gave a talk on moms. It was sad to say goodbye to so many friends, both from the Church and the School, however I know that they are all supporting me on this new adventure. 

For those of you who don't know Ill be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Frankfurt Germany for two years. I leave tomorrow and cant wait to get started. 

It was also great to talk to my sister yesterday for mothers day. She is serving in the Alpine German Speaking Mission. I think she has about one more year left in her mission. It was nice to talk to her again after almost six months of just emails. (Missionaries can only call home twice a year but we can write home every week). She is having a great time in Switzerland.
