This evening we were privileged to host dinner for the missionaries. I love these guys! They are seriously awesome and I am so happy they are here right now. I am especially excited about the sisters because when we arrived in Mississippi we found out that we did not have missionaries assigned to our town. When I heard that my heart sank. However, a couple of weeks ago our town got missionaries...and better yet sister missionaries...which is a very first for our town and our ward for a matter of fact! Our ward has never had sister missionaries! It is quite a change coming from a place where there are LDS people everywhere to being just a few of a small handful in our town. I still can't express my excitement when I found out we had missionaries!! Needless to say, being one of the only member families in town, we get to see a lot of these guys and I love to have them in my home!!
I brought up "blogging" because evidently blogging has become part of my personality;) Sister Costley and Elder Ballard both have relatives who blog...so this post is for them. I want their family to know that they have amazing missionaries out in the field right now! They are all doing so well. They are happy, healthy, and engrossed in the work. They are truly a delight! I have the utmost respect and admiration for these 4 people!....and Carter simply adores them and seems to cling to Elder Bird whenever he is around.
So...to those of you who might know one of these 4...send them a message and I will pass it along!
I always assume that most of my readers are LDS or know of the LDS faith because those are the only ones who comment....but if you are wondering about missionaries and what they do and what we believe please visit lds.org. Thank you and goodnight.
