Jamison's Mission Call

Larry's brother Jamison received his mission call in the mail today. He has been called to serve in the Thailand Bangkok Mission. The mission also covers all of Laos and Burma (Patricia's home county). Jamison reports to the MTC on March 24th.

As a sixth-grader, Jamison played Prince Chulalongkorn in a high school production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I. However, this tidbit of information is unlikely to win Jamison any friends in Thailand as apparently most Thai find the musical's portrayal of their revered King Mongkut to be highly offensive and historically inaccurate.

There's a certain little girl and a little boy that are going to really miss their Uncle Jamison while he's on his mission.

Congrats Jamison on your mission call!

CONGRATULATIONS! It sounds like an exciting place. Last time I saw Jamison, he wasn't even in Primary yet. Man - time flies. Best wishes!
