Happy Father's Day from Florida!

Sister Johnston and Sister Blair
Waving a Happy Father's Day from Florida

Yesterday we received an update on Janna.  With permission, I am pleased to post an email from Renae Hale. Janna is currently serving in her ward in Winter Garden, Florida. Sister Hale sent this letter for Father's Day with some great photos.  I am always glad to get letters and pictures from the field.  Thanks Renae!

Hi, This is for the dads of Sister Blair and Sister Johnston., so, moms, give your guys the screen for a few minutes so they get first dibs on these pix that I took for them as a Father’s Day gift. Then you can come back and see them too…lol!

These two sisters are a powerhouse pair! We’ve had a lot of time with them, dinners, service hours, stops to get some lemonade and now I’m working with them to hopefully teach my neighbor across the street! I love them both so much, and I enjoy every minute of time I get with them. They always have the spirit whenever they come over and when they leave, that spirit always makes my day better.

You can be so proud of them, they are working very hard and have a baptism next Saturday, so that’s really exciting!  My husband and I always try to make the missionaries feel at home, as people did that for our sons when they were serving their missions. I know it’s hard for these sweet girls to leave home and come to Orlando to be missionaries, but this area is a field white and being harvested mightily.

We have grown so much in this area of our stake that in 3 years we’ve gone from 3 wards to 5, and it’s due to the work of the faithful missionaries who come here and work their hardest. We love them and try to help them as much as we can, and they appreciate your help and love too. They’ve told me that several times.  Please know that they are being taken care of and protected by the Lord and the ward.

I hope you like the pictures!

"For behold the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul;"
