The Good Ol' Days

It is so fun seeing old friends. The other day a dear friend showed me this old photo. Every year while my family lived in Japan we would have an 'Easter Party' for friends with little kids. I was the oldest, so I would take the plastic Easter Eggs to the local park and hide them for everyone to come hunt. Those were the days! Now all the kids in the photo are 16-18 years old!

Missionary work is hard and I have to work hard to not get discouraged, but the rewards are so worth it. It is so wonderful to see the gospel bring peace and joy into the lives of those we care about.
I know that God cares and answers prayer and that the Book of Mormon specifically answers the questions of the soul.
We are so blessed!

Happy New Year!

2015 Year of the Sheep
This is going to be a great year. It is off to a great start with hard work in a great part of the world!
It is a whole new experience for me to be searching out foreigners in the city. 
We also get to attend the Japanese ward to help with the language, but are assigned to find and teach English speakers.
We have found some wonderful people and the members here are just terrific!
Skyping home for Christmas!
