It FINALLY arrived!!!
Derek received his mission call on March 27, 2012 to the Sao Paulo East Brazil Mission. Family and friends gathered in the Heleman Halls lobby to watch him open that coveted white envelope.
Derek had several friends who had also received their mission calls, so we took a picture of them proudly displaying their calls. From right to left is Phil Condie (Colorado), Taylor Bassett (Ogden, UT), Derek (Sau Paulo East, Brazil), Sheldon, and Chance.
Derek's grandparents had also received their mission call a couple of weeks before Derek did. This is Grandpa Gale and Derek right after he opened it.
Derek's friend Sheldon made this video of the mission call opening. If you have a minute and have a tear to shed, check it out!
