I Hope They Call Me on a Mission...

Every few months, I get the opportunity to do a shoot that I feel is really special.

This shoot, was one of those.

Young men and women, around the ages of 18-25, spend years preparing themselves to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Once prepared and ready, they submit their papers to church headquarters, where the leaders of the church assign them a specific mission.  Some are overseas, some are stateside, some are service missions in their own county.  But all require a sacrifice of a significant amount of time and dedication- 18 months to 2 years, to be exact.

This young man is no exception.  He submitted his papers and was called to serve in the Bahia Blanca Argentina mission.  He reported to the MTC (mission training center) to begin learning the language and prepare himself for a life of service for 2 full years.

He is also number 2 in the line-up of my lovely Mother of 40 Somethin' from yesterday.  His older brother is also out serving a mission.

Without further ado, here is Elder Kleinman:

Best of luck, Elder Kleinman!!  

So, what did you think?!  Could you give up 2 years of your life to help others?  Especially at 18??  I am always so amazed by these young people!!  

Thank you for stopping by!!
