We got word last night that Elder K's mission mom, the Mission President's wife, passed away. We haven't heard yet what happened, but we are praying hard for her husband, family and all the missionaries who will be affected by this. I hadn't written my email before I heard the news, so I was able to address it when I wrote last night. I actually woke up to an email this morning.
Yeah we got word this morning (about Sister Hill). We will be getting a new Mission President. It had an really big effect on Elder Barfuss and Kaelin because they got to know her really well. But it's God's plan, not ours. He will do the best for us.Thank you all so much for the birthday money. I have some very interesting things that I will bring home.
I am so grateful that these missionaries have each other during difficult times. Sister Hill's death will give them all an opportunity to learn how to support each other and will be a real experience for growth and learning. It sounds like he will be a good strong support for those sweet missionaries.
We love that boy (and wish that the snakes would just stay way!) and are grateful for all that he is learning and the man he is becoming!
