My younger brother Jake, is currently serving a 2 year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Scotland/Ireland mission.
This is something that I admire greatly because I cannot even begin to imagine putting my entire life on hold for 2 years to teach and to serve others.
I am daily amazed at the strength of my 19 year old brother doing so out of his own free will.
Every week he sends us e-mails, talking about his adventures as the life of a missionary in the UK.
His letters are uplifting and inspiring.
If you are interested in reading his letters, I promise, they are super entertaining, you can do so on the following blog:
He has about a year and a half left, and I can guarantee you that his letters will never get boring!
