Called to Serve

Scotty got his mission call to the, Catania, Italy mission! We just got off the phone with my family back in Utah. I was kind of bummed that his call came so fast. If only it would have come next week then I could have been there.
My Mom called today and told us his call was there and to have everyone guess where they thought Scott was going. I guessed Brazil or New Jersey, Drew guessed Chile or Texas and I pulled a map out for Mac and he pointed to Russia. We are so excited for Scott and a little jealous. While I know his mission will be A LOT of hard work, he gets to eat the most delicious food and is going to live in this beautiful place for the next 2 years...


After I got off the phone with Scotty, I googled Catania. 'Cause lets be honest I had no idea where it was. In 1996 the Catania mission was formed from the Rome mission. Catania is on the island of Sicily and the mission extends up to the Rome mission. Catania is a sea port at the base of Mt. Etna which is an active volcano. One blogger said at every corner there's a market and few people speak English there. After looking at all the pictures and reading about it, it makes me want to watch the God Father:)
When we visited Rome in June 2007 we all fell in love with Italy. Scott you'll be an awesome missionary!
