Even though missionary work is difficult at times, they continue to bring light to this part of the Lord's vineyard. They are growing into the type of women that you want them to be. You should be proud. Again, thank you.
Oh, by the way, we had your sweet daughter and her companion over for lunch yesterday and dinner today. We made a cake for her and sang happy birthday. There is something that happened this weekend while they were here......you really won't believe it....... She was so.....how can I say it......brave....Hahaha. We won't tell you more since your daughter will be sending you pictures and a description.....We love your daughter like our own. Thank you for sharing.
Here is a picture of us. We hope that it makes you smile.
I found where the sisters were having dinner this evening at the Halpins and met them there. I actually got there before they did.. hahaha... so when the Sisters got there they peeked around the corner not sure what I was going to do. Well they thought I was going to throw a pie in their faces... hahahhaha ... I wonder where they got that idea???? Who me?? hahaha, oh well.
I said, “This is from your mom." and I gave her a great big hug, then I said, "This is from your dad, Bro. Despain can't give this to you from your dad, so I will give it to you from your dad." And I gave her another big hug. She just giggled and said, "Ahhhhh" "Thanks so much!" Laughing she said, "This is so much better than a pie in the face."
Birthday wish delivered with love.
Thanks for allowing me to do this for you.
