EVERYONE! Take a guess

I happened to chat online today with my youngest brother, Bryce, and found out that his mission papers are in! He said he will probably know where he is going by the first week in December.

He gave me permission to get a poll going on here about where he is going to be called. I don't care if you normally don't comment here, you need to now! Everyone take a guess. Jeppson siblings, make sure you get Bryce's nieces and nephews to guess too and post it on here! Comment soon before someone else takes your guess!


If someone guesses correctly (specific mission, here is a link to all of them), I will buy you a $25 gift certificate to your favorite restaurant!

I guess London Manchester. Chad guesses Denver Colorado North.

Kari said...

Brazil Recife!

Jamie said...

I guess Japan Tokyo North.

Sandi said...

How exciting for Bryce!
My guess: Florida Tallahasee Mission

Ashley said...

That's no fair to have nieces and nephews guess - that means Levi and Audra get like 9 guesses and we only get 4! I better start having Blaise make his choice.

I say Canada Toronto West

Roy says Indiana Indianapolis

I'll ask Rae and Blaise their choices in the morning. :)

Jonelle said...

No idea why, but i'm gonna guess: Philippines, San Pablo

Aaron said...

Santiago East! Ashley, don't complain about lack of guesses. Sure, Levi and Audrea have 9 guesses, but $25 won't go very far if they do win.

Linda, Mom and Granny said...

Ecuador Quito

Bryce said...

well my guess is Ireland Dublin mission. No my papers haven't come yet so I don't know the answer.

Ashley said...

That is true Aaron! It'd be funny if you go called to Ireland you little redhead!

Ashley said...

Rae guesses Switzerland Geneva

Blaise guesses South Dakota Rapid City

They are pretty intelligent kids.

Is there a guessing deadline? You should have a guessing deadline. I'm way too competitive.

Linda, Mom and Granny said...

Ashley~ LITTLE redhead?

Olivia Carter said...

I'll guess Venezuela Caracas mission!

Audra and Levi said...

No guessing deadline - just when he gets his call.

That would be weird if he got called to Chad's old mission Aaron.

Audra and Levi said...

Oops. That last remark by Audra was Katie, as is this one. Hehe, now they KNOW I used their computer while watching their kids!

lindsey said...

Puerto Rico San Juan... I think this link is outdated because it only lists one PR mission and they just devided it into two. We know bryce has to go spanish speaking or he won't fit in ;)

lindsey said...

Lilys guess is columbus ohio

James said...

Plenty of Spanish speaking in the Texas missions...

Meredith said...

okay----I say Fort Worth Spanish speaking mission---yeah, I'm selfish

David says Mexico City---hmmm---needs to be more specifi on that one

Ace says Fiji (Jasmine's husband served there)

lindsey said...

Seth guesses Georgia Macon

Faas Fam said...

I was about to put Columbus Ohio, but looks like someone beat me to it. That'll probably be it, but I'll say Cincinnati Ohio.

Katie said...

Sorry Lindsey, only kids that can actually say the guess get a guess! Gosh people! I dunno, Blaise might be kinda questionable too.

It said on that page that some newly created missions might not be listed. I hope not too many are missing. Does anyone have a better link?

Ashley said...

Hey, you don't think Blaise said Switzerland?? Actually, we had them point on a map and chose the closest mission.

Bryce said...

yeah Ashley whats this about "little" redhead? i'm bigger than all y'all. you're right Lindsey, i better go spanish speaking or i won't fit in but if i go chinese then i'd be able to talk to a couple nephews. I said Ireland because I'm a pelirojo and i love the accent. A lot of places have spanish speaking missions cuz Austin Ulmer is going to Nashville Tennessee spanish speaking. i just wanna go out of the US. Well details about my mission call is that the First Presidentcy meet on thursdays and look over mission papers so today they might be looking over mine. if they don't look at mine today or make a decission today then the nxt time they meet will be the week after thanksgiving. technically the soonest i could recieve a call is this Saturday or so and if i do then i will wait until tuesday or wednesday before thanksgiving to open it when i'm in blythe. So it would be good to have your guesses in by then.

ray and brandie said...

Ok random with nothing to do with Bryces's mission......but I see a comment from a Faas family. We know Jason and Lacy from our Tustin ward, if that is them. We actually had their baby shower at our apt. And I think he said he knows chad. If you speak to them, tell them hello for us. I'll get back to you with our guess.

Christie said...

Oh, never doubt Amelia's ability to say anything she puts her mind too! Just ask Mom and Dad about "Cinderella!"
Actually, I was going to pull up the list and see which letter Elizabeth points out first. She's obsessed with letters and colors these days.

Chad Coleman said...

Well, let's hope you don't get sent to Santiago East - That means your on the hook for re-activating all of the 9 year olds I baptized...good luck with that. Bryce, I think your States-side buddy - Colin told me today Provo-Mission (Where he was born coincidentally).

Brandie - The "FAAS" family actually is Jason's brother, Matt.

27 Comments? This has to set some sort of blog record right?

Bryce said...

no chad! i am not going be go to the states, don't jynx me like that. just tell colin that he's wrong right now. tell him to pick somewhere different if you want any chance of winning. If i get sent to provo then i'll never leave hi alone about it and i will talk even more smack when i play mario kart. lol

Katie said...

Brandie - The Faas Family that commented here is Jason's brother Matt and his wife Jennifer. Matt is one of Chad's oldest and best friends, and he is friends with Jason as well. Their whole family is lovely. Small world, huh?

Katie said...

Oops, didn't notice that Chad already answered.

Ashley said...

I'm gonna write some cool blog and get 50 comments! Katie probably just did this poll so she could get a bunch of emails and feel important.

Bryce said...

well you can't write a blog thats cooler than this one unless you include me in it somehow.

BiggieKen said...

I choose the Honduras San Pedro Sula mission. For Bryce's sake, I hope it's not stateside. Good luck wherever you go, Bryce!

James said...

Elizabeth says Texas Lubbock

Amelia says Texas San Antonio

I say Texas Houston

and yes, Texas is a whole other country!

And yes, the girls can say these :)

Bob, Dad and Grandpa said...

I say Costa Rica San Jose. I don't know why.

Katie said...

Ashley - all I care about is the comment count. That's me! Oh lookie, one more.

Ashley said...

Katie, I just like getting a lot of comments so that I don't feel so dumb when I check my email 50 times a day. If there are emails then I think "wow, good thing i checked!"

mom and grandma of BOLTON BUNCH said...

Australia Brisbane

Linda, Mom and Granny said...

Wow! I just read that Dad guessed that Bryce was going to Costa Rica San Jose. I was going to guess Costa Rica San Jose! Then I changed to Ecuador Quito. Just weird....

Christie said...

Stateside isn't so bad, Bryce! I should have done my guess earlier...now I have to go through and make sure I don't pick somewhere someone else has already picked. Oh, I know! Washington Everett Mission! Pretty much everywhere I served is now in that mission.

Jonathan Conley said...

Oklahoma, Oklahoma City

Autumn said...

I guess Washington State, Spokane.

Sabina said...

I'm thinking Peru, Lima South. Bobby was going to guess Ohio, Columbus too but since it's already taken he'll go with New Hampshire, Manchester.

Uncle Buck said...

Brazil Campinas. I don't know anything about it but it sounds like a really cool place.

Uncle Buck said...

I have to say, however, that I hope your dad gets it right. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and you could send home pictures and make us all jealous.

mom and grandma of BOLTON BUNCH said...

Ray is picking Brazil Santa Maria and Ryan is going for Chile Santiago East

Audra and Levi said...

Alright, here is our last minute entry, considering Bryce could be calling us any minute now....
