As we serve Sister Stone’s mother her in Utah, we have some time to contemplate the wonderful experiences of the past 18 months. What a ride! We will share a little bit with you this week.
We reflect on the amazing sights along the road as we traveled.
We miss our experience in Cambodia. We feel we have left our family behind. Our contractors, the people at the schools and health centers, the members of the branches and wards, the missionaries, the culture and the challenge!
Friday was Sister Rasmussen’s 88th birthday. We celebrated with a neighborhood party that attracted dozens of friends and family. The support of the ward was amazing. She was reassured that she is well loved.
Sister Stone’s love and care has lifted her mother up and has given her more days to enjoy. She is now able to eat and has more strength. We so appreciate the support of the ward and family in helping improve her quality of life in her final days. We expect we may be here with her several more months. We will serve Cambodia in the mornings and evenings via computer, and serve her mom during the day or more as needed. We hope to return and finish our service, but we trust the Lord to lead the way.
We love our mission. We love our family. We appreciate all of our friends.
