It's Official. I am Sister Elkins!

Well, the big day has finally arrived. Tomorrow I embark on a new adventure. All though, I believe half the adventure is packing everything you could possibly need in the next 18 months into two suitcases is no easy feat. Not only do I have to somehow get everything to fit, but it all has to weigh less than 50 pounds!! I kind of wished I had some clowns to help me pack; they seem to be the experts on how to fit things into small places. Sadly, I didn't know any clowns available to help me out.

Good thing I have years of practice playing Tetris, it all came down to what do I need the most and how to make it fit just so. By the time I was done packing, I couldn't help but jump in the air with one fist thrust into the air. I felt like I just defeated the packing dragon.

Things became very real for me that I was leaving when I saw the Stake President to be set apart to be a missionary. I couldn't decide if I should be nervous or excited.

I do know this. I was called to serve in the great land of Tulsa, Oklahoma for a reason. I know that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me. That I’m going out to Tulsa Mission, to find those lost sheep. I can’t wait to share my faith and bring hope to those who are in darkness and looking for the light of Christ.

 I couldn't be happier than I am right now. I know I’ll experience so many things on my mission. I can’t wait to get started!!!


  1. Rock on, sweet girl! You will be amazing and I'm looking forward to reading about your journey. I love you!

  2. You go Sister Elkins, blazing a trail of the gospel light wherever you go <3. Your impact there will affect the lives of others in an Eternal way. Not many get that privilege. I cannot wait to read the next chapters.
