Sister Kramer: Her Final Emails

We got the expected email on P-day and then this morning we were surprised when Bailey emailed us after her final interview with her Mission President.

My emotions are all over the place....thrilled to have her coming home and a little sad to be closing this chapter for her.

Monday's Email....

I am excited for dad!
Dont get me wrong i am very excited to be coming home! i am stoked to see my family! but its just a big change.
This week was good we have been teaching a lot of people and one of the excepted to be baptized in december which is really exciting! 
I will take away everything i have learned on my mission! 
there is a quote by C.S. Lewis that i heard a while ago on my mission and this is how i feel about my mission and the changes i have gone through!
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”

Truly this is what God has in store for all of us! one of my leaders once said that God does not progress he is all knowing and has all power which is true! but God does grow. He grows in glory and that glory comes when one of his children makes righteous choices in his or her life. we are his glory! 

I love you guys so much thank you for being my support while i have served the Lord! i cant wait so she you! 
love Sister Kramer
