Opening the call....

Blake's Mission Call came on July 3, 2013. The Post office actually called Corey at work at about 6:45 in the morning  and told him that they had it there and we could come down and pick it up, or they would just deliver it with the mail. Blake was just walking out the door for a busy day at work, so we decided to just have the mailman deliver it. We had our family and a few friends come over at 7:30 that evening to watch him open it. There was so much excitement in the air with everyone making their guesses as to where Blake would serve. "Dear Elder Laing, You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Washington DC South Mission! There were lot's of cheers. I Love this picture of Blake and his cousin Spencer. They will be serving at the same time, Spencer is going to Lima Peru. They were going through Blake's mission book of things that he needs to take with him . What an exciting time for these to valiant young men!
