To all the missionary moms...

The mission is buzzing with anticipation
of the opportunity to call home.
Mother's day calls will be happening all over the world.
But I think mission moms are among the most deserving.

With faith they teach, train, and watch their children grow 
into servants of our Heavenly Father.
With faith they say good-bye for 18 months or 2 years.
With faith they await the weekly email.
With faith they pray for their sons and daughters, the investigators they are teaching, and the mission president.
With faith they send off packages not knowing if they will ever arrive.
With faith they mark off each day on the calendar.
With faith they wait to see what kind of man or woman 
will walk off that airplane.

Faith is an action word...
these faithful mothers MAKE things happen!
Through their prayers, their temple attendance, their service, 
their feeding the missionaries (as they hope their own will get fed), 
and their working with the missionaries in their wards.

A special thank you to all of our Missionary Moms
We love you and appreciate all you do to support your missionary.
