Hello family and friends!
|Hermanas Avery and Stewart|
Last night, I received a phone call from my mission resident at about 10 p.m. He told me that he had "bad news from home," and said that my sweet family in Virginia (aunt, uncle and cousins) lost their home and youngest baby girl, Eleanor, in a house fire this week. My heart is broken, and I can't imagine it. Please keep them in your prayers. For things like this, I am extremely grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know for a surety that families are eternal, and that we will all see sweet baby Eleanor again. I like to think that she and my baby brother, Jonathan, are on the other side of the veil doing missionary work. We don't always understand why things happen, but the Lord does, and we have to trust His ways and timing, even when it is hard.
I hope that you all enjoyed General Conference! It was spiritually uplifting for me, and I hope it was for you all too! I apologize again for not writing a ton this week, but know that I love and miss you all and that you are in my prayers. Talk to you next week! Love you!
Xoxo Hermana Avery
