Hi, I'm Amanda, and I'm a Mormon missionary!

Oh hey look, I have a mission blog and stuff...

Yay for mission blogs! In case you can't tell by the title of the blog, I'm going to the California Carlsbad mission! I swear, by the time I'm done with Carl's Bad, the city will be renamed Carl's Good. Seriously, I'm going to make that joke for the rest of my life now. When I opened my call, all I saw was the word California... and what I thought was the word "CarlsbaNd." In case you can't tell by my mispronunciation, I had NO idea where that was. When I looked on the map and saw that it was near San Diego, I just about FREAKED OUT. Why, you ask?


This, ladies and gents, is the greatest place on earth. The San Diego Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I found out I would be serving 8 miles away from it, I just about died. My roommate can attest. HOWEVER, I realize that the purpose of serving a mission isn't to redeem the dead. I need to focus on the other 2 missions of the church. Perfect the saints and proclaim the gospel. Hey, I can do that! Hey, I WILL do that! And it will be AWESOMEEE.
Anyway, this is my first blog post! Fun stuff! Many more to come :)
