Newport, Maine, trying my first experience with real maple syrup
with my sweet companion/ trainer, Sister Jenaya Roberts.
I love this girl. She broke me into the mission life,
and taught me that you can work hard as well as have fun as a missionary.
You need both!
The Neas Family- John, Jackie, Brittany, and Mandi,
and Stephanie on their baptism day in Newport Maine!
Sister Mecham and I were so excited for this day!
One of the scariest times on my mission....
Sister Mecham's bed caught on fire and it was terrifying!
The firemen came along with tons of others,
and we were famous because we made the local Maine newspaper.
Learning how to make our own maple syrup from real maple trees!
Thanks Joe and Laura! I miss you guys!One of my favorite families-The Dows.
Sister Ross and I at the Joseph Smith Memorial in Sharon Vermont. This is where Joseph Smith was born. Every Christmas they put Christmas lights all over and have a little nativity scene and Christmas program. We got to go and it was a ton of fun.
Sister Pace and I, soaked after getting caught in a rain storm! It was on my birthday too, but I have to say, it was one of my favorite birthdays I have ever had.Scott and Jean DelPorte from Lebanon, NH. Such a rock solid golden couple. Sister Ross and I found them while tracting, and then Sister Abbot and I were able to be there for their baptism. One of my most memorable highlights from my mission!
This is me very very very excited! This is about 10 minutes before my plane landed in Salt Lake City airport. It was such an exciting feeling to know that in just a short time, I will get to see my family that I haven't seen in 18 months! There were also some sad feelings knowing that you are leaving your mission and all the people and memories there. But, nothing beats knowing that you did your best and worked your hardest, and now it is finished and you get to come home.
If you are reading this, and have thought about serving a mission, do it!
It will be the best thing that you could ever do!
