In February, 2012, Rachel gave us a call one evening. We were sitting on the couch in the living room and were watching tv. It was a rare evening when neither one of us had anything to do. We had a casual conversation, asking how things were going, then Rachel said, "Okay, I am just going to say it...I want to serve a mission!, What do you guys think?"
There was a long pause, mainly because we are both big babies. Rachel wasn't sure if we were still there or if we had lost the connection. "Hello?"
"That would be great! You would make a great missionary!"
