On December 10, 2016 the mail that we had been waiting for so long finally arrived. It was a most welcome early Christmas present. After months of obstacles and delays we would know where Skyler would be serving his Heavenly Father and his fellow men for the next two years.
Conveniently, this was also the day of the annual Hunsaker Family Christmas Party - and many of our extended family was already gathered and able to participate in this exciting event with us. Skyler also had many special friends drop what they were doing to come and participate in this moment as well.
Skyler was so excited as he read the words from our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, to him - calling him to the Arkansas, Little Rock Mission, serving in the English language. This mission is also right next door to the Arkansas, Bentonville mission, that his cousin, Sister Kailey Caldwell is currently serving in.
Skyler is set to enter the MTC on January 25, 2017 and then arrive in Little Rock on February 14, 2017. As a family we are so excited to embark on this journey with Skyler as he fulfills this important calling.
