Anchorage Alaska Mission

The Anchorage Alaska mission covers a large mass of land, including the entire state of Alaska (in white) and also the Canadian province of Yukon Territory, directly to the east.

I love this beautiful photo of the Anchorage Temple. It's exciting to know that Mat will have the opportunity to go to this temple.

Waiting for the Call

Mat's letter arrived Thursday, February 19. The mail was half an hour later than usual so I was getting really anxious. As soon as it arrived I called Mat and told him it was here. His answer: "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Then I had to text everyone I knew so now everybody is anxious for him to get here to open it, including me. This is what I have been looking at all day as I wait for Mat, Ryan, Valerie and Tyler to drive down from Utah for the big letter opening event.
