Video: Missionary Surprised at MTC by the Brother She Thought She Wouldn't See for 3 Years

Sam Tams was already serving his mission when his sister Anna surprised her family with the news one fast Sunday that she wanted to serve a mission.

Interestingly enough, that next morning when they checked their missionary email from Sam, they discovered he had dedicated his fast for Anna that Sunday, wanting her to have the opportunity to “learn all the things a mission teaches you," LDS Smile reports.

But that news meant the siblings wouldn't see each other for three years as Anna would be leaving for her Spanish speaking mission in Denver, Colorado, just as Sam would be finishing his mission in Mexico City.

However, when Sam learned Anna would be going to the Mexico City MTC at the start of her mission, he asked his mission president if there was a way he could see his sister, and this sweet, hour-long reunion was arranged.
