"Well here I go! I'm off to head to my gate.The next plane I get on will take me straight to the MTC. Thank you so much for coming down to Alabama. I really do appreciate it. This mission deal is freaking hard, and I haven't even been set apart yet! It is a good thing I decided when I was young to go on a mission. It is a choice, but if I am to be an example to my brothers, if I am to shake my Heavenly Father's hand and ask to live with Him again, there seems to be no choice. I'm in! I may have a name tag, but remember WE ARE ALL ENLISTED 'TIL THE CONFLICT IS OVER. And equally as important: HAPPY ARE WE!!!!! Write me! I will write back. Much love and prayers, Elder Jacob Dick"
I miss this boy so much already! I couldn't be more proud of my son and the choices he is making! Jacob, you are AMAZING!!
