3-17-15 Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hey friends!!

Happy St Patrick's Day! How are all of y'all celebrating? I've started the day with my shamrock socks/chacos combination, a shamrock necklace, and a nice bowl of Lucky Charms! It's been a great day so far! Quite a difference from last week when I was sick all day long! Prayer is a very powerful thing and can help with even the sickest of stomachs! That and ginger ale! Haha!
I'm allowed to wear Chacos in my mission once I reach Brazil. 
For fun, I likes to wear them with colorful socks on P-day and during physical activity time.

This week has been a great one! On Tuesday we had a visit for Elder Cook of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles! He gave a really great devotional about missionary work and how the Holy Ghost guides us through lessons! He was really inspiring and gave a great talk!

We've been doing a lot of really good progress in Portuguese! It's so cool to go into a practice lesson and to teach things we prepared in English in Portuguese. I've been really enjoying the times we have with Irmã Cowan and Irmão Buttars! They're so inspiring and fun to learn from! I really love getting to learn this language and thinking about how great it will be to teach the people of Brazil about the Gospel of Jesus Christ! It's so exciting!

I'm so excited for the next couple of weeks! We all get reassignments soon (except for Sister Holdsworth, who got her visa to Brazil) so we basically get a second mission call! I can't wait to see what happens in the next few weeks to see what the Lord has in plan for us and for His children around the world!

Have a blessed week, and always remember our Lord, Jesus Christ! Because of Him, we can do all things!

  1. You are lookin SO good Lady! By this time next week you should have receive a box from Alabama. I hope you enjoyed the goodies inside. I had fun thinking of you while I was putting it together. I have been making a bunch of those lambs and chicks to give to people I know a church. I think they are so cute. I still need to make more of them,I'm putting Pom-Poms on some of them cause I ran out of feathers.
    We are going to Chattanooga for a couple days,the end of the month. One of the ladies Ralph worked with is retiring and we are going for her retirement. She also lived down the street from us for a while. It will be great to see them. Their son is the same age as Kasey.
    I'm so happy you are doing so well. I'm really excited to see where you will go. But I really wish your Visa would come so it could be BRAZIL. I KNOW you do too. May Heavenly Father Bless you richly. I love you beyond measure. Gram
