RJ's Mission Call Opening~ Where in the World Will RJ Serve?

Family and Friends gathered with anticipation and excitement for RJ to open his Mission call.  We filled a World Map with everyone's predictions.  It ranged from Idaho all the way to Russia.  We had a table full of treats and desserts from around the world.  When RJ read the words,  "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 Uganda Kampala Mission, which also includes the countries of Ethiopia and Rwanda."  I gasped with my mouth open.  Africa???!!!  That country never was even on my radar.  RJ just had a big smile on his face and embraced Rob and I.  We were all in shock the rest of the night.  We all met on our bed right before we went to sleep and tried to find out as much as we could about Uganda, the Internet was our best friend offering a wealth of much needed information.  I don't think any of us slept that night!  He is excited and ready to serve the Lord and the good people of Africa.
