No Word on the Visa...Still in Provo, UT

Valerie is still in Provo, UT. She is studying and waiting for her Visa. She's busy so we didn't get a blog post yet, we hope to get one in the mail later in the week. For now, I'm going to share a story that she shared with us from her e-mail we received yesterday.

this week i heard a story that you all would like. a sister in the mtc told this story about a couple in her ward. this couple was a senior couple and they put in their mission papers...they received their call to ukraine, but they didn't want to learn a new language so they declined the all and decided that they would put their papers in again in a year...so they did just that. when they got their second call, that call was also to ukraine. the couple decided that they should probably go since the lord had called them twice to that same mission...when they got to ukraine, they were assigned to a very interesting area, which included a prision...one day, they were trying to teach some individuals in the prison, but they were having a very difficult time with the language. finally they spoke loudly and asked, "does anyone speak english" one man came forward and said that he did...this man ended up being their son who had been backpacking in europe and had been missing for 7 years. this man had somehow landed himself in jail, and his parents had no idea....but because they followed the call of the lord, they were able to find him...AMAZING!!

If you have a second, Val would LOVE to hear from you! You can send her a letter in the mail, or you can go to www.dearelder.com and send her a note there.

Her address is:
