On Thursday, August 2nd, Colin received his Mission Call. He didn't open the call (or tell anyone else he had it) until Saturday. Needless to say, he was very happy with the call when he finally opened it.
Colin has been called to serve in the Australia Adelaide Mission. He will enter the MTC on December 19, 2012.
The Australia Adelaide Mission is located in the center of Australia, covering the middle 1/3 of the continent (from Darwin in the Northern Territory to Mount Gambier at the far bottom of South Australia, a distance equivalent to that of Detroit to Mexico City), and is one of the largest (geographically) missions in the world. The upper portion of the Adelaide Mission is adjacent to the Australia Brisbane Mission (Kiefer’s mission).
