Elder Tipton

On October 22 something very special happened...

My brother Cole received a fancy envelope in the mail which contained the information of where he would spend 2 years of his life preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ... 
Some of us gathered at the hospital, where my mom was working, to hear him announce where he would be going. We were all very excited and maybe a little nervous... especially Cole.


R. Cole Tipton has been called to serve in the Fukuoka, Japan Mission!
Now, we are learning that being called to serve a mission in Asia is a typical thing for the Tipton men. In our family we have a grandfather, and two uncles who served in China and a father who also served in Japan.
We are beyond excited for this kid to get out there and preach the word.
He leaves Jan. 26th, just after the baby will be here. Good timing right?

    1. I think that it is suuuuper freakin awesome that Cole got is mission call! Japan! Its like a whammmy..

  2. Congrats to Cole!!! What an exciting time for your family. He is going to make such a great missionary...and Japan? Who could have guessed. haha. Hope you're doing well Ms. Emily. You are an adorable pregnant soon to be mom!

  3. That is so great! I guess he'll have to shave that beard of his, huh? :)

  4. Yeah. I guess he is just living up the facial hair while he still can... Or maybe he is just being lazy? We are not really sure...

  5. That is so awesome! My brother just called to serve in Africa and there is just so much excitement when they read that letter. They have a definite change in attitude! Congrats to you brother! He will do amazing things!
