More like Him November Update
I have been learning this lesson for years, it manifests itself in different ways, this time it is waiting on mission papers to be submitted.
Crazy things happen to my Kota when he was getting ready to file his papers. The state of Minnesota lost his papers for his driver's license. We had to wait on his driver's license before we were able to send the papers on to the bishop. We were all set up to send the papers to Kota's Minnesota Bishop.
Kota got his driver's license two days before he moved back to Ohio. When he moved back, the papers that we filled out online did not automatically get transferred to our Ohio bishop. When we submitted the papers a few weeks ago they went to the Minnesota bishop. We had to wait for him to release them to the Ohio bishop.
It seems like a lot of waiting on our part. I would normally be upset by all the delays, but I knew all of this things will happen on the Lord's time. Maybe all the previous tests helped me endure this one better.
Now the stake has his papers and we are waiting on people to get back from vacation to get an interview with President Talley. Then we will wait again for the apostles in SLC to review his papers. This has been a month of waiting. We do look forward to the call so we know what kind of stuff to buy the kid.
I can't believe this day is here. It seems like just yesterday he was singing in Primary, "I Hope They Call Me on a Mission."
