About Me

Kumusta!

I am 19, and serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Philippines Cauayan Mission! I will be speaking the Tagalog language. I’ve got similar interests to many my age–I love hiking, doing things with friends, going running, going on dates, coming up with Indie band names, learning about anything I can, soccer, going to school, lacrosse, singing, jazz, and piano. My family is awesome. My life is in a great place.

But for the next 18 months, I am leaving my family. I am leaving my friends, dating life, sports, most music, school, and other opportunities completely behind for He that I love most: the Lord. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ more than anything else. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to serve them wholeheartedly for 18 months. Nothing I am leaving behind is truly a sacrifice, because I have been blessed infinitely more than I could ever repay. People need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to tell them. Too much happiness, too much joy, too many blessings have come to my life from having this gospel in my life for me to not share it. Come learn. It will change your life for the better. It has changed mine.

Paalam!

  1. My niece, that lives with me, just received her mission call to Cauayan, she reports to the MTC Aug 13th. Any suggestions or advise would be greatly appreciated. I was so excited to find your blog and put my heart to peace to see the pictures of Sis Carr’s sweet smile. ……..april johnston momtwice@hotmail.com

    • I’m so sorry that I didn’t see your comment earlier. I am not on very much since we moved to a new house recently. It is nice to see that the Cauayan mission is a great place to serve. Do you have any questions in particular? Use lots of hand sanitizer, vitamins (with iron – like prenatals) are helpful, as are a probiotic to keep healthy. I bought a probiotic at Costco that was in blister packets to stay good. The Malaria medicine can give a tendency towards yeast problems and so does the humidity. Tell her to wash her hands a lot or use hand sanitizer. I think it can be bought there depending on the area. The people really don’t wash hands much, so when shaking lots of hands it is good to have something to help stay healthy.
