I feel as though I have always understood that missionary calls are divinely inspired. I understand that each missionary is assigned to the mission that they are truly meant to be in. In a talk given in the 2010 General Conference Priesthood session, Elder Rasband spoke on the process in which calls are made.
From others of the Twelve, I have learned that this general method is typical each week as Apostles of the Lord assign scores of missionaries to serve throughout the world." (The Divine Call of a Missionary Ronald A. Rasband)
This quote only served to reiterate what I have always known: Each and every call is divinely inspired from God.
Now having said that, I was completely caught off guard by my own emotions towards my mission call. Don't get me wrong, I felt the spirit so strong and I know that my assignment to serve in New Zealand is truly from God. However, I have to ask myself "Why am I supposed to go to New Zealand?" and "What do I have to offer to the people of Auckland?". I guess its not that I am questioning whether or not this call is from God, but I am trying to figure out the reason behind it. There is a reason or a person that is responsible for my assignment to New Zealand, I just need to be prepared so when the moment comes I can fulfill my purpose. Wow that is a lot of pressure! It's a good thing I guess that I have FOREVER to prepare. :)
