I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. ~3John 1:4

With three of our children now serving in three different countries around the world, we thought this would be the best and easiest way for our friends and family to follow them on their journeys and watch as they learn, grow, and share their experiences. Lance is a combat medic in the US Army and is deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Air Assault, Nicki is serving an 18-month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in New Mexico, and Hunter is serving a two year mission in Honduras. We are so blessed!

M&Ms (Missionary Miracles)!

Okay, so many of you know the mishap we had with Hunter's bank account this week, which resulted in frantically (okay...make that controlled panic) trying to get a new debit card to him in Honduras. After two hours at the bank, an hour at FedEx, and $88 dollars later his temporary card (yes, I'll have to do this all over again) was on the way.  (Still working with the bank on the funds, but that's not really part of this awesome story!)  We sent the card on it's way, crossed our fingers, and hoped and prayed he would get it sometime within the next month or so. This was on Tuesday.

TODAY (Friday) early this morning I get a call from the mission president's wife, Sis. Dester, and she can barely contain herself.  She had to call and tell me that they received Elder Ririe's debit card YESTERDAY! She said it was a miracle in and of itself that they received it at all, but to receive it in two or three days?  Miracle!  The story gets even better!  She said it arrived with a batch of "church" mail.  That's really odd because it was mailed on different days from different FedEx locations and she said they NEVER receive other letters or packages with a batch of "church" mail!  Sis. Dester also told us that this very same thing happened to one of the other missionaries (with the same bank even) and they have been waiting weeks for their debit card to arrive and it STILL hasn't shown up.  She couldn't wait for Hunter's email day and just had to call and tell us.

Once again my testimony that Heavenly Father loves us, that  He knows each of us, and knows our needs and is always there for us is strengthened.  How thankful I am for this M&M (missionary miracle) this week!  Every time you eat an M&M from now on, I hope it reminds you of this little story and just how much our Heavenly Father knows and loves each and every one of us.

Miracles happen!
