So this was hermanita Shepards last several days @ the Provo MTC....it's bitter sweet for her. She has really loved the MTC, she's made some really great friends, has learned & grown spiritually, & in espanol & truly has been blessed w/an awesome MTC companion & roomies, & teacher <3 BUT she is way excited to get to Buenos Aires Argentina! Hermana Shepard will be flying out tomorrow December 14th w/19 other missionaries who will be serving in Argentina too!
Hermanita Shepard didn't write a mass email this last week, she had to do lots of laundry & figure out how to make 200 pounds of clothing, shoes, & personal items fit into 2 pieces of luggage! (I'm GLADDDDD I wasn't there to help her lol!)
These guys above have been like Rios family these past 6 weeks, they've been together day & night & night & day!!!! & I'm sure she will miss them as she continues her mission in Argentina!
Rio did write us a lil family email, saying she is really grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord, & she is extra excited to teach people about one of her favorite things in the Gospel, The Plan of Salvation <3
Sooooo, this missionary mamma is asking for extra prayers over the next day or so, that hermanita Shepard & all the missionaries leaving tomorrow will travel to their various destinations in safety <3 & that all well go well & as planned:)
I will update her blog once I hear from this crazy but cute hermanita Shepard in
BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA:)!
ps Rio will have the same email, & IK she would love to get emails every now & then:)
her new address for the next 16 months + will be:
Hermana Rio Savana Shepard
Argentina Buenos Aires South Mission
This mission does NOT allow any packages;/ It will not get to her sadly;( But regular letters DO:)
