It has been a crazy week.. Full of many changes..

One of the highlights this week was when Cherry Hill New Jersey Missionaries were all able to go to Washington's Crossing State Park in Trenton. It was a wonderful experience. To be able to be there where so many brave men fought. To recognize that the world has been prepared through time to be able to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ brought forth. I am grateful for this country we have to live in. For the many blessings which belong to us. To have our freedoms, what a blessing. 234 years ago the Declaration of Independence was signed. How wonderful to be alive at this time.... how wonderful to be able to celebrate the lives of those wonderful inspired men who change all of history. It was a fantastic experience.
Also a sad one as we said goodbye to our wonderful Mission President. Pres. and Sister Winegar! They have been great examples to me. I am grateful for the opportunity I've had to be able to serve under them! To see the love they have for the people of New Jersey and the love they have for all of us as missionaries. I will never forget their example! It is interesting to say goodbye to so many wonderful people that I have met, the Winegars' and so many missionaries that I have grown to love. It is going to be exciting to see what comes from all the changes.

Also this week Sister Rowe and I are blessed to be able to serve in a Young Single Adult Branch which covers the whole Cherry Hill Stake. We are starting to work with these wonderful people! I am so grateful for this opportunity. I am already blown away at the wonderful people I have met and the wonderful people I get to work with and be involved with there. It will be a challenge that I am willing to take! I know that with the Lord all things are possible!
Also.. Just so all of you know... I found a quilt shop in my area! It made me so happy! I felt at home for a bit! Made me miss my sewing room a little, and all my friends at Quilted Works! So... I hope you are all doing well! Know that I think of you often and can't wait to sew with all of you again soon!

  1. Hi, I hope Sister Pallas's family reads the comments on her name is Liz Gillen and I actually just got back from a teaching appointment with Sister Pallas! She and Sister Small are serving in my ward in Doylestown, Pa.

    When I met her today I thought that I might have recognized her, and so I looked at the Mormon Mission World website only to find that her blog was listed. I enjoy reading the blogs of missionaries because I am thinking of serving a mission myself.

    I am 20 years old and I joined the church 3 years ago. I am home for the summer from BYU and I told the missionaries to call me whenever they need me. I love helping the missionaries!

    Anyway, thank you for allowing us to have your daughter. Feel free to email me at :)
