Mission Call 1976
I received my call early September. I was called to serve in the Buenos Aires North Mission. The call was signed by President Spencer Kimball.
Because of the difficulty with getting visas, there was a period of several months between getting my call and my going to the LTM. In face so much time that I was able to attend an extra quarter of school. I wasn't planning on attending, but I got the call with time to enroll, and didn't leave until like a week before the end of the quarter. I just had to arrange to take my finals a week early. I remember taking a couple philosophy courses, and that is where I learned some visual jokes, and how to think so logically (that is satire about myself). I also took music theory, and embarrassed myself rewriting a Beatles song.
That bag didn't make the trip with me. I used my brief case.
Finally I headed for the LTM in December, between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
