My Grandnephew just received his Mission call to Billings; Montana.

 

That is good news... I hope he isn't disappointed he wasn't called somewhere overseas... or a larger city, etc.

He's happy at being called. Though not looking forwards to how cold it gets there. He's a real southern California hot house flower like me.

 

I'm glad... he'll be in my prayers when I ask blessings on our missionaries as they serve, wherever called...

When the going gets tough, the tough go to Billings, or maybe Havre a bit further north.

May I suggest getting a set of polypropylene underwear for winter to be layered over his garments. The summers can be hot so cotton is better than nylon then. A quick look at Wikipedia will show that Billings is full of real western history.

That's where I'm from!

 

Yes, he is going to be cold (and hot) but it's a great place.  On the down side, he's going to have to get every vaccination available (the ones that they usually only make overseas missionaries get) but he'll get to see a lot of nature and serve around some wonderful people.  :D

Heh!  Reminds me of a story from President Monson's biography (I should say up-front that I think the guidelines about working in cold weather have changed: if it gets cold enough, missionaries don't go out, period. [Of course, I never had to worry about that in Sunny San Diego :D ... but ... I digress!]  This is still a funny story.)  Two missionaries sent [then-Mission] President Monson a telegram: "President, Thermometer reads thirty below.  Please advise." President Monson cabled back: "Dress warm, work hard, and don't look at the thermometer!" :D

 

Congratulations to you and yours! :)

:huh::unsure:  Seriously?! :huh::unsure:

 

Huh.  Whodathunk?!  Not to derail the thread, but what's the thinking behind that?  (Just curious ...)
