Sister Grant

Brooklyn opened her mission call a couple days ago and I've been meaning to post about it but better late than never. Brooklyn opened her call and will be serving in the Bacolod Philippines Mission and will be speaking Tagolog. She leaves 3 days after her birthday on January 14th. Lets just say everyone was shocked when she read the Philippines, and I think we are all still a little shocked. Her mission area is a couple different little islands and 2 bigger ones, so she'll be island hopping during her mission. Her missions main city of Bacolod means the city of smiles, which is so perfect for her. Brooklyn is going to be a better missionary than I ever thought about being and I'm so excited for her and proud of her. She is definitely going to be missed. I've shed a tear already.....(I blame it on the pregnancy hormones lol) and my mom has the days counted down, I think we're at 72 now. Anyway here are some pictures that I found real quick of what it'll look like and the map of where she's going.








I just hope Brooklyn gets crammed in a car like this lol

My parents just got back from there!
Tell her to enjoy, it will be cultural shock, the church is still very new there (irreverent) and to be prepared for the feminine hygene in a whole new way....a ditch could very well be her bathroom while proselyting...3rd world country for sure. good luck!

Yeah for Brooklyn, how exciting. Holly (Heap) and Boyd Lee (jeniffer's husband) went to the Philipeans(spelling?) and they both speak Tagolog. And congrats to you on having another baby!
