Guess what just arrived?

This is Clark’s mission call!

The location of my son’s whereabouts for the next two years is contained inside this envelope. If you’re not familiar with missions and missionaries, you can learn more here.

I’ve not been able to make much time for blogging lately, but I have to hop on and share what is a rather monumental experience if your a 19-year old Mormon boy!

We’ll be opening this envelope tomorrow night at 6:00pm. I’ve set up a conference call, so that my parents and extended family can call and listen in. I’ve also invited the aunts, uncles and cousins to submit a guess as to where they think Clark might serve. I’ve posted these guesses on our big map downstairs …

A complete list of all 340 missions is here. I served my mission in Frankfurt, Germany and Geoff served in Boise, Idaho.

If while Clark contemplates his future, you are interested in joining in the fun, leave a guess in the comments …

I’ll send anyone who guesses correctly happy mail with some of the NEW CHA goodies that have arrived at my house in the last two days!

Naturally, I’ll be reporting back on the contents of Clark’s happy mail — hopefully, he can stand the wait!

  86. I will guess Ventura, California… I wish him luck and an awesome life experience.

    Ventura is gorgeous and would be an awesome experience!

  118. Stacy,

    Thanks for sharing this exciting news. I have family who are Mormons, but they have not shared their faith with us. I sincerely appreciate learning from you and through your family expereinces. Being directed to information on Missions and Missionaries was very helpful and will allow me to ask more questions and be more open.

    I wouldn’t presume to guess, but I could hope that he ends up in Santa Rosa, CA so I could me him.

    My well wishes for Clark and all the family as you anticipate this adventure in faith.

  133. I’m guessing GA, because we have missionaries here all the time. Some are renting an apartment from my father in law right now and they are such nice boys! If he does make it here, I’ll make sure he has home cooked food and treats when needed! :) I always feel so maternal when I see the missionaries around town grocery shopping or at the library.

  134. I will guess Japan! If I have to choose a city, I think Fukuoka.

    I have heard some radio broadcasts about the needs in Japan, so I think God could use him there.

  135. I will guess a Spain mission. My son is at the MTC as I type this. We dropped him off last Wednesday. He will be going to Calgary Canada on 3/6. Talk about an adjustment, our last child, and gone for 2 years. My heart hurts…

  165. Carrie Alexander says:

    Pusan Korea. Two of my cousins served there…it’s where they learned to wear white socks with their dress shoes! LOL!!!

  166. My guess is Brazil. . . they send a lot of boys from WA and OR there because the VISA’s are more easily expedited for some reason through your consulate.

  167. We’re biased toward Russia, West Africa, Brazil and Okland Ca!
    but whatever people he is called to serve will become a huge part of his heart!

  168. Karen Cummins says:

  237. I guess Korea. It would be perfect.

  238. Lynsee Womble says:

    I’m going to guess Lubbock, TX just because that is the closest mission to my town. It’s so interesting to learn about your faith through your blog and I would love to know more about how they choose where to send each person. Does every single person in the Mormon Church do a mission or do some opt out?

  239. My guess is Kingston, Jamaica. It would be an interesting place for a mission!! My friend’s son ended up in Denver (we live in Alberta) and he will be home around the end of the summer. She is over-the-top excited to have her oldest home!! Best wishes to Clark and to your whole family!

  240. Although I think Korea would be so awesome for your family, I’m going with Guatemala Quetzaltenango!

  241. Anchorage AK ~

  242. I put my mouse down and it picked Papua New Guinea. If he goes there, it will be a dramatic experience. In truth, all missions will be dramatic experiences. I love how you made this a family experience. I hope that this evening was amazing.

  243. I am going to guess Billings, Montana……where my mouse landed when I closed my eyes and moved the mouse! Awesome journeys for Clark!

  254. Nigeria, Port Harcourt – didn’t know you guys had a mission post there, but that’d be interesting

  255. I’m going to guess Sweden!

  256. I’m amazed that it’s this time already. Where does it go?

    Amazing enough, there’s a mission site here in my area, but I do hope he gets an overseas adventure! I think it’d be awesome for him to visit Japan since you and Geoff got to do so together . . . I think he has the personality for success in completely foreign areas.

  257. Im gonna say Haiti!

  258. I’m gonna say Haiti!

  259. Athens, Greece! Wherever it is, I know he’ll do a spectacular job. What a handsome guy he is too!

  260. I would say he would be successful were ever he went, but if I had to take a guess, then I’d say Norway.
    Have a great time!

  261. Maybe he will be sent up Little Rock, Arkansas. If he was I would only ne 45 minutes away and I could iron an eye on him and report back to you. LOL

  262. I am going to guess the West Indies. What an exciting time! You all are showing quite the restraint not tearing into that envelope! Can’t wait to hear!

  295. I am going to take a wild guess and say Calgary, Canada…or rather Calgary, Alberta, Canada is how it should be actually. It’s cold out here right now… less than stellar weather sometimes but oh-so-close to the beautiful Rocky Mountains!!

  296. Finland! Wherever it is I hope it is a wonderful experience :)

    So exciting! I can’t wait to find out where he is going!

    -Jenny

  305. Hi Stacy, So I am guessing Brazil Rio de Janeiro.. that way he might be able to take in a World Cup game… My initial reaction would for him to serve close to home… but then thought that might be harder to know he is so close and not be able to spend time together… (forgive me for not knowing knowing the “rules” for missionaries… I in no way mean to offend… ) Hugs! Jackie

  306. I’m guessing…Southern California.
