Called To Serve
When Pres. Monson announced that the mission age would be changed to 18 effective that day in last Octobers conference Braiden was both excited and terrified all in the same moment. He thought he had 6 more months to get "mentally" prepared. Once the news settled in he and his dad finished up the last things to get his papers ready to submit. It didn't hurt that his dad was the Bishop and was eager to get the papers started and had most of it already done. Braiden was able to get everything done and have his papers submitted 5 days after the announcement.
The call came on Halloween and we were all excited to find out where he was being called to serve.
