Such an exciting time. After waiting for weeks for his call to arrive, Sammy opens his mission call to serve in the Honolulu, Hawaii mission speaking Marshallese. Tons of great support from friends and family. Thanks to everyone who showed up. Some of the pics are in this awesome video of Sammy opening the call.

Ok, so I wanted to start a blog so that we can easily share some of the letters and experiences Sammy tells us about as he begins this great adventure.
As most of you know, he has been called to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He will serve in the Hawaii-Honolulu mission and will preach the gospel in the Marshallese language.
He entered the MTC on July 3, 2013, and will be there until August 13.
Anyone wishing to write him can send him letters or packages to:
Elder Samuel Glenn Merrill IX
2007 N 900 E Unit 13
Provo UT 84602
Note: emails can be sent and delivered for free while he is in the MTC at http://www.dearelder.com/ using his mission info above.
Should you have any questions about Sammy, please feel free to send me (Sammy's Dad, Sam) an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will try to keep regular updates and pictures coming.
