This is my first Mother's Day without my dear, sweet mom! She is with Dad now and I am happy for her, and I know I will see her again. She is still cheering for me, and I always feel her love and support!
With the Lord there is always a light at the end of the tunnel! We love working with the church members teaching them about the Light of Christ and how they can repent and find great hope and light through obedience and commitment to the commandments!
We enjoyed some golf time with the missionaries in our District on their P-day. Elder Martin loves giving them some pointers and having a little competition. Not sure who won but they all had a great time!
I bought the candles and didn't realize they were the trick ones that reignite, so we had a lot of smoke and some laughs over that! We love these boys and the whole family!
I started having issues with pain in my right knee, trying to slow me down, so I got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon here. I only waited a few weeks for the appointment and he was happy to give me a cortisone shot. I hope it does the trick and I can do cartwheels again (kidding). I have to at least keep up with my companion on our walking trail!
It makes us think of pirates and hidden treasure!
On Sunday, we were given a rose to wear, thanks to our wonderful Sister Ahokovi!
A sweet man we visit gave me a box of candy and the Sisters gave me some warm socks they rolled into a cupcake liner so it looks like a cupcake, with a lollipop sticking out for the "cherry" (so cute)!
Mother's Day evening in Devonport, enjoying the sunset and the beauty of the ocean!
What a great Sabbath, feeling honored to be a mother, a wife and a missionary!
We love you and thank you for your prayers!
Elder and Sister Martin
