Email from the Mission President

Sister Lloyd's Mission President sent out an email to the families of all the returning and new missionaries. Here is a summary of what they said about the new missionaries:

"Dear Missionaries and Families,

November 2015 Arrivals in our Mission
The mission has been blessed by the arrival of these enthusiastic missionaries from all over the country.
Their expectations are high and our prayer is to help them realize these lofty goals.
They are in our mission to baptize and bring others unto Christ"

Happy Thanksgiving

We got a text message and a photo from a family in Sister Lloyd's first area:

"We had the sisters over for Thanksgiving dinner! They are all lovely ladies. :) We're glad they're in Gridley. Love the Browns."

I'm glad to see that she's doing well, and being fed. A million thanks to the Brown's for sending us the photo and taking such good care of our missionary!

She Made It

Latest update from Sister Lloyd:

(There are 6 Sisters and 3 Elders that went to Roseville with her)

Hey everyone! I'm in Roseville!! It's a little cold right now and it was raining earlier, but it's nice. I'm pretty tired because I only got an hour of sleep last night, but that is ok because they are having us going to bed early tonight. They told me I could email you guys right now. For some reason they think you guys would want to know if I'm still alive and made it here hahaha :) The flight here was good it was really pretty. There are a lot of farms out here, they actually grow a lot of rice, which I thought was weird, but you know... whatever makes you happy. Anyways I'm going to get off now because I can't think of anything else to write.

Love you all,

Sister Lloyd.

Sister Lloyd's first email from the MTC

Heidi's first email from the MTC has arrived! It wasn't very long, she has been pretty busy.
Sister Lloyd's very first ever MTC companion is a Polynesian sister named Sister Vaitohe (vi-toe-he).

Here is a summary of her email:

The MTC is ok, the food here isn't as good as Mom's though. Oh and we can't high five. Only handshakes are allowed! Which kinda bugs, but oh well. I'm learning a lot here, but honestly I can't wait to be in the field, which reminds me, I am leaving the MTC on the 24th of November. 
I love you guys so so much and miss all of you.
-Sister Lloyd

She said that she is not going to email everyone on her list until she is out in the field, so if you didn't receive an email this week, don't feel bad.

It's Official

Whelp, it's official. Sister Lloyd has entered the MTC as of this afternoon. I wasn't able to be there in person, like I had been wanting to, but I was able Skype her as she left. I'm not sure I've ever cried so much in my life. I know she is doing what the Lord wants her to do, and she will do great things in California. Roseville will have no idea what hit them.
