We met with President Henry B Eyring via video conference, first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints.
It was an amazing, powerful, humbling, sacred experience and something we will forever cherish. After 45 min of instruction and powerful counsel, President Eyring extended the call to Rodney A Ames and asked him "to serve as a Mission President for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for the period of 3 years, English speaking" He then extended the call to Kimberlee Nicole Jensen Ames "to serve as a full time missionary for a period of 3 years in the mission in which your husband presides" We accepted. Afterwards, we tried to write down everything we could remember while it was all fresh in in our minds of the experience, the counsel, but mostly the feelings and impressions that we had. This picture was taken just seconds before we were to begin our meeting.
