Favorite Scripture

Alma 36:21-22
21 Yea, I say unto you, my son, that there could be nothing so exquisite and so bitter as were my pains. Yea, and again I say unto you, my son, that on the other hand, there can be nothing so exquisite and sweet as was my joy.

22 Yea, methought I saw, even as our father Lehi saw, God sitting upon His throne, surrounded with numberless concourses of angels, in the attitude of singing and praising their God; yea, and my soul did long to be there.

Chris is leaving for Africa!  Oh, it the time passed soooooooooooo fast.  I am nervous, excited, nervous, thrilled for him. He flies out of Salt Lake City International Airport Monday, September 10, 2012.  He will then travel for a couple days, arriving in Maputo, Mozambique, on September 12, 2012.

Let's hope and pray he likes airplane travel.  Having never been on an airplane before, the Mama is just a bit nervous about him being on one.  He will be fine.

Of course, he would love a ride on this plane.  

Perhaps this one.    

Yes!!!  The ultimate ride. Space, the Final Frontier.   

Africa feels like the final frontier to the Mama today.

Prayers for the pilots and their staff would be appreciated.You know, prayers for good sleep, alert minds, and cooperation aboard would all be wonderful.

Today we are off to deliver one final package of necessities and pictures to the Elder.  He has to downsize to one suitcase, a carry on, and a backpack.  Apparently in Mozambique they are only allowed to travel with one large suitcase.  It will be quite a challenge to consolidate stuff and to decide what to leave.  Here is a shout out to Post Mart in our town. They not only deliver packages daily to the MTC for a mere $2.00, they also provide a local return service from the MTC for free.  The extra piece of luggage and it's contents will be coming back to us via Post Mart.  We just have to go to their store and pick it up.  What a blessing.

Happy day to you.
Signing off for now,
The Mama
