12 Hours

It's finally September 14th. I've waited for this exact day for over 2 months. But I've waited for the day that I would go on my Mission for a lot longer. At 12:55pm today I will of started my mission. I enter the MTC so soon, I don't know how Im going to Sleep tonight.
I'm so grateful for the opportunity I've been given to serve as a Missionary. I know Ive been given such a great opportunity. I'm thankful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and to have the Holy Ghost in my life to help guide me and to teach me. Im grateful to be able to share this blessing with people in Arizona.
I'll be serving in The Arizona Tempe Mission, if you dont already know. I will be in the MTC for two months learning Spanish. And I'll enter the Mission Field in Arziona on November 15, 2011. Ill serve there for a period of Two years.
Im grateful for the blessing of social networking. I really am so that Im able to share whats going on on my Mission with my friends and family. Please share my blog on your facebook with your friends if you would like.

Like I said I'd love for anyone to write me.

I want my friends and family to know how much I love them! And that I know that I am going to do the work of The Lord. 
We all have a loving Heavenly Father who loves us so much. His son Jesus Christ is our Savior and Knows us. He has made it possible to return to live with our Heavenly Father and to be happy in this life by following him. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is his church, and that through the Prophet Joseph Smith he restored it to the Earth. I know that we have a prophet today that is lead by God for our benefit. That Prophet is Thomas S. Monson. I know that if we follow Jesus Christ we will be happy and grow so much.
I love the Lord and am EXCITED to do his work! Keep me in your prayers please. Love all of you so much!

Elder Jonathan Harder
