A little note from me, MOM!
The most wonderful thing happened Sunday, April 23 at 8:15 am. I got a wonderful text from Cami Ellis from Idaho. She said that she and her husband were in Bayonne France and loved running into our missionary Nicholas at church while they were on vacation and as a bonus he was giving a talk 😊. She said that her husband was a missionary in France 20 years ago and they were there visiting areas he served and touring and ending in Versailles for the Paris Temple Open House. She said Nicholas looked so very happy giving his talk (because she had no idea what he said because he was speaking in French) ha ha She said her husband said that he had a very good accent and is speaking the language very good, and she said they were hoping to take them to breakfast the next morning. She didn't know this but Saturday night less than 12 hours prior I was on my knees asking Heavenly Father to send someone to our Son and his Companion to feed them. Monday she texted me again telling me that they ended up getting together for lunch and they loved spending time with Nicholas and his companion Elder Duffy, and that he is amazing and has a tenderness about him that is noticeable. She said they could have easily spent the rest of the day with those 2 young men. She said that it might be the highlight of her vacation so far. I am so grateful for Cami giving them love, buying them food, and taking the time out of her day to contact me and send me pictures and above all answering my prayer. I will never forget her. I love these tender mercies that we receive! In his letter he also told me that a Peruvian family had asked them to dinner also! The blessings keep pouring in!
I had a really touching moment this week that i really noticed
out of any other! I dont know the whole situation it was at home when
we lived in the White House in hurricane when we lived there but i
know that we were poor. I know that cause one time i saw you putting
the powdered milk in the half used milk container. And grandma would
give me milk containers and food to bring over to our house. But i
remember one time i saw you putting the powdered milk in or something
and i never really thought about it again, but now i think about it
has touched me so much more that we didnt even have enough money for
milk and you were always willing to pay your tithing and our lives
were just normal as ever. The memory came back and i felt inspired to
share it with our investigator who might have problems with it and
doesn't see the importance cause they are not as well off. But I was
just crying telling it and the spirit was so strong and he looked me
in the eyes after and he said i will and i have felt your testimony of
the things you have just said! It was something i will never forget!
Im so thankful for this mission. We went out again with the American
family from Idaho the ellis family, they were so cool and nice
and he was telling us that the
mission doesn't always seem like the easiest thing
but i know that for me it has made me so
greatful for my family more than anything in the whole world. I love
you so much mom! I love you and the family so much more than you know.
I know i was a fart growing up and it was hard for me sometimes,
but i am greatful for the family that we do have and that we were
sealed for time and all eternity as a family.
I love you so much and thanks for all you do for me. Love you
Wigity wigity wigity!
