Preface: An Unexpected Journey

     In a dorm at BYU, Provo there lived a girl. It was not a dirty, unfriendly kind of dorm: it was a freshman dorm, and that meant fun! Although this is not a story of Middle-Earth, it is a story of a young women answering the call to serve. In October 2012, when President Monson announced the lowering of the missionary age, Krissie knew what she would do. Within minutes of his talk's end, she had called her parents to tell them she was headed on a mission. Before the session was through she had also called her bishop, and then began her mission papers. She decided to finish fall and winter semester before leaving on her epic journey.
     On January 25, 2013-a day before her birthday- she received her mission call. She was headed to the Misty Mountains of the Alpine German Speaking Mission. She began her quest on May 1st, when we dropped her off at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.
