Mother's Day Update

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Hi all, 
We didn’t get a weekly email from Caitie on Monday because we were able to face time her on Mother’s Day - happy day! We were in Rexburg for her cousins’ mission farewell (Eliza is going to Nicaragua, Laura is going to Peru) so she was able to chat with a lot of family and even say hi to her cousin, Michael, that is serving in Brazil. It was awesome. SO good to see her face and hear her voice. She is happy and healthy (ok, she’s tired, but happy!), funny, feisty as ever (especially about the Elders that have “her truck” and won’t give it back), she’s working hard, growing, learning, and nearly halfway through her mission. The news from Alaska is that she will stay in Fairbanks with Sister Fa’anunu for another six weeks. She was hoping for a change of scenery, but she’s feeling hopeful that with the change of seasons and everything finally turning green, she will find some new energy and ways to serve in Fairbanks a little longer. She loves the people in their ward (she called from a ward member’s house that is actually a high school friend of ours - small world!) and loves being a missionary. She has learned to love salmon and bought herself some Alaskan fishing boots - she is figuring Alaska out :) 

Thank you for all of your love and support for Caitie - she loves you all!
