Missionary work is not easy - April 10, 2017 - Apple Valley

My dear sweet Mommy Mom,

Oh my goodness I miss the choir!! I think about it often. I miss the constant music we would hear for choir. Can you tell everyone that I miss them???

I'm so glad grandma is getting so much love and support especially from our family. I pray for her daily. Give her a hug for me!!

Oh mom! I hope this isn't too much of a favor to ask but if you can, can you go to Deseret Book and buy me some stickers? like some churchy ones? giving the little kids stickers during church and FHE is a good tactic to use to help them be good!!! Another thing, could you send some Mormon Tabernacle Choir cd's? I know I have the missionary collection but it would be nice to have some more variety!

Did you end up sending me a DVD of dad's funeral? It would be much less of a hassle if I could watch it at home on our little portable DVD player. That way I could watch it privately. 

Yes, I know the Boulters! Bro. Boulter is our vehicle coordinator. We have devices on our cars that monitors our every move. If we speed than it lets Bro. Boulter know and he gives us a call and asks why. Haha its awesome! They keep us so safe out here! I'm sure Ben and Spencer had those devices on their car too. Ask them if they know what TIWI is. Haha!

Thank you for sharing your testimony mom! You are so special and I love you so much! Feel free to share details to other people about what I share with you. Any of my experiences that I share I hope may help someone else down the road. The Lord works through people to answer His children's prayers! I trust you with what you talk to others about me. And I know if it doesn't feel appropriate to share a certain thing I know you won't share it. I just wanted to let you know to be open with others if you feel that they could benefit from it!

Okay so here's the scoop on last week! It was a verrrry slow week. We didn't see any of our investigators, we hardly saw any less-actives, we did a few service projects, UGH last week was kind of a blah. But good news is that it is getting much warmer out here and it makes me happy! Especially when we see kids playing in their yard. I love that! Sister Tate and I are trying to get our motivation to spike again. It's so hard not to get discouraged when we aren't seeing success in our work.

I love and miss you my dear mommy mom!!! Please know that I love being a missionary more than anything even when times get rough. Like Elder Holland says "I believe that missionary work is not easy because salvation is NOT a cheap experience. Why do we expect things to be easy when it was NEVER easy for Him?" It goes something like that. But I know that in order to have known of the good in things we need to know the bad. I love knowing that the Savior is helping me push through tough times and I also have angels round about me to bear me up 😄The church is true and the book is blue!

Much love,

Sister Allred

p.s. can you tell everyone that I didn't have much time today? also its super cold in here so it’s hard to type fast hahaha!!
