My purpose as a missionary - April 17, 2017 - Apple Valley

Dear Sister Allred, my sweetie girl!

I got a cute message from Sister Osborn, letting me know that your p-day was on Thursday this week. She said you're a great missionary! So, how was the temple? Did you go to the Redlands Temple? How wonderful that you were able to go to the temple!

We had another Easter Concert on Sunday night. It was absolutely beautiful. I love Easter music as much as I love Christmas music, and I also feel so blessed to be part of the Heritage Choir. And yes, I watched the "prince of peace." I love all the church videos so much.

Grandma came home yesterday! Hooray! We are all so happy! She still has a long road ahead, but she has made so much progress lately. WE do have to be with her 24/7, so that will be interesting. Vickie is here this week, and is helping Grandma so much. Preston and I will be watching her a lot this summer! Preston is such a good boy, and he really does help Grandma. We are blessed to have each other.


How is the work going? I'm praying for you all the time. Remember the Lord loves you, and knows you personally. He cares about your well-being. Please know that I love you, and pray for you. Be strong and of a good courage. May the angels be round about you to bear you up.

I love you so much!

Hi mom!! 

Quick email today because I have 10 minutes and then we will leave for the temple. It takes a while to get there so we are leaving super early in case of traffic! I’m really excited! It has been a really tough week. I won’t go into details. My migraines have been really bad. A couple of days ago I called the mission nurse to seek help. Our conversation gradually transitioned to her being concerned about my emotional/mental health. She had me take a survey about anxiety and depression and yes, they both have come back. I have an appointment with the mission counselor on Friday in rancho Cucamonga. He will help me! So yes, a trip to the temple is much needed!!

don’t want to scare you but all of that is important to know! Please know that I’m being taken care of! My faith will not shake because I know my purpose as a missionary. Sometimes the Lord just lets us go through hard things! You of all people know what I mean!! 

Hopefully I can email more after we get back. We should have time. I will give you all the details about the good things of this week.

I LOVE YOU MOM!!!

Love,
Sister Allred
