I love having a missionary out serving. My daughter has been out for more than a year now and will be home in December. I hear other missionary moms saying how hard it is to have a missionary out. I love it.
Our family has been so blessed since she’s been out serving. We have prayed for missionary experiences ourselves–not necessarily an easy thing in northern Utah county. We put together a music blog with some songs we recorded about missionary work. It was fun to work on and sing together, but probably no one will ever see it. I feel like it has been a missionary experience for my children anyway. I have one more song I would really like to get recorded and up there.
Bruce has been accepted into the Mormon Tabernacle Choir which is a great missionary opportunity as we promote the choir on facebook. We love to hear the choir sing and look for Bruce in the loft. He will get set apart this Thursday.
In less than two weeks we leave to go to Nauvoo to participate in the Nauvoo Pageant. We are thrilled (which is a huge blessing in itself.) We got into the same cast as Bruce’s brother’s family–which is extremely exciting. The girls were not so excited at first, but now they are very excited. We’re working to learn the songs and we’ve had several Family Home Evening lessons in preparation. We will be set apart as kind of temporary missionaries. We’ve been practicing how to share the gospel and answer questions. We’ll see how it goes.
Those are just a few of the blessings we have received since Sam started her mission. I have a great testimony of the power of missionary work and the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to change lives.
I’m glad to be a missionary mom.
Sam gets to try some exciting things on her mission in Florida, like redneck cheesecake. Yes, that’s an Oreo with squeeze cheese on it.
