I'm in the health clinic waiting for Sister Anderson. But I just wanted to let ya'll know how much I love you. My heart is full of gratitude and love. I am so blessed to have my family as my best friends. I can't tell you how many sisters here tell me about how they aren't close to their siblings or even their parents. But that ain't us!!! We are birds of a feather.:) I want you to know that I am doing well. My testimony in the gospel of Jesus Christ has grown and I can feel the love of my Heavenly Father more than ever. There are times when I forget my purpose, but then I remember it's all about having that eternal perspective. It's about helping others come unto Christ, grow in their testimony, and having the faith that Jesus Christ will be with me every step of the way. Blake told me that having charity is one of the most important things to remember in my mission. (and in life) "Charity is the pure love of Christ. The highest, noblest, strongest kind of love." --Bible dictionary Moroni 7:47 "Charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever." I like that part, "and it endureth forever." Having charity will be the anchors to our souls. We can't live this life without seeking the help of Jesus Christ, humbling ourselves, and have a burning Faith. I love ya'll so much! I get emotional when I think about it!!! hahahaha But Sister Packard misses ya'll. What a blessing it is to know that families are forever! Being with ya'll for all time and eternity is an exciting thought.
