My heart is so full right now. We are just about 39 hours away from picking Abby up at the airport.
I am pretty much a puddle of emotions.
Abby's mission has been such a blessing to our family. We have loved reading her e mails and sharing in her experiences.
I am so proud of her for so many reasons. I know the sacrifice she has made over the past 18+ months will bless the rest of her life.
She has learned how to do hard things and she has learned to trust her Heavenly Father when things get rough. She has experienced some of life's highest highs and lowest lows and yet she comes out smiling and thankful for the experience.
She has constantly borne testimony of the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. She has also repeatedly testified that when things get tough, just hang on because you never know what Heavenly Father has waiting right around the corner for you. So just hang on! --She has lived this time and time again on her mission.
If anyone reading this would like to attend her mission report, she will be speaking THIS Sunday, September 10th in our ward in Paradise at 9 a.m. The church address is 155 East 9400 South in Paradise, Utah 84328
David and I thank everyone that has supported her in so many ways over these past 18 months so that she could serve this mission. We appreciate your love and concern for her and the many prayers that have been offered in her behalf.
You DID it Abby!!
We are proud of you and love you so much. It's going to be so great to have you back under the same roof with us and in our arms again.
Well Done Thou Good and Faithful Servant
Mission Accomplished !!
