the land of 10,000 lakes...



That's where my beautiful sister, Rachel, will be spending the next 18 months of her life, as a personal representative of our Saior, Jesus Christ. That's right, beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota! I couldn't be more proud of her for the choices she has made up to this point in her life. She has just what it takes to be an effective instrument in the hands of the Lord in preaching His gospel, and building His kingdom. I envy her.

That is so cool, so exciting! I bet you are so proud...and maybe a little bit reminiscent of your time spent serving the Lord. She is beautiful, you two look a lot alike.

Wow! Tell her congratulations! I've heard tons of good things about Minneapolis from friends from Michigan, and I've even been there several times ... OK, only on layovers, but hey! Whatever works, right?

I think that's the first time I've seen a blog about her. I think out of all your sisters, she looks the most like you. She's so beautiful!

Hooray!! I never went on a mission, but I am jealous of her and the wonderful experiences that are in store for her!!

She's lucky to have a big sis that went and can relate to all she will go though. I'm sure your letters and your postitive attitude will be such a huge help to her!
