Sister Musick returns

Dear Family and Friends -
Some of you may be aware that Sister Katie Musick has been struggling with her health for the last few months while on her mission. She has done a good job of sheilding us from her problems. However, her doctors recommended that it was time for her to come home to recuperate. Both she and her mission president were not happy about the suggestion, but realized it was better in the long run for Katie. She will be returning on Thursday, the 20th at 12:12 at Meadows Field. If you would like to join us in welcoming her home, feel free. I think it would help her to know she has a family and friends here to support her recovery.

It is anticipated that she will speak the following Sunday in the Highland Manor Ward, which starts at 9:00am.
Thanks so much - The Musicks

Well, Mom to tell you the truth I was nervous to make the call home, too. I did not want to call home, but I remembered that Sam did not want to call home either. So I deceided I was ok to call home. It has not made me homesick at all. It was just good to hear yours and dad’s voices.

So today we went to the temple and I got to play B-ball, it was a lot of fun.
So tonight we are having a luau - we are dancing. I am not happy about that. But I am taking one for the team. We are going to have food and I will be talking and dancing. I will be happy when this is all over.

Mom and Dad, I love you for all that you do for me. I am grateful to have great parents that love me, and want me to be happy. I know what you are doing back home is so important - being a Bishop and his wife is a great calling to have. Yes, at times it is hard. “No one said it would be easy, only that it would be worth it.” I am grateful that we can be a family forever. Mom and Dad, I always put your names in the temple.

I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH! It was great to talk to you all.
Love, Sister Musick
Hurrah for Israel!

Marvelous May

Hey Mom and Dad
Well, we had an interview with Pres. Yardley - it went well. He did not tell me if I was staying or going, but he told my companions that we were staying together so we will see what will happen. I got to play the piano for the interview, too.
We went to seminary on Monday. That was fun. It took me back.

So the fireside that the mission put on went so great. There was a lady that came and she was crying during it. It is nice to see that we believe in the same things. But Sister Thomas told Sister Yardley that I should Sign and I did. I got to sign “I Know That My Redeemer Lives”. It was fun. People came up and asked if I was on a Sign Language mission. They loved it.

The Fireside was great - it was all about Christ. A family that we are seeing came to it. But the kids did not come. Let me tell you a little about this family: the mom and dad got a divorce and they are back together. They have a son and two daughters and one of the daughters has a learning problem. She is not baptized so we have been meeting with them. But the girl is so hard to talk to. She always looks to her mom for the answers and it kills me. She knows the answers. I told her about me and all. But one day I got to talk to her and it helped a lot. She is talking more to us, but it is still hard. There are a lot of things that are going on in that family right now. My companions think that is why I am here, for that girl. If you have anything that would help, please tell me.

Well, it looks like dad is busy. I am praying for you, Dad and I am praying for you, Mom. Mom, tell Bethany Happy Birthday! Sunday, I will call around 7:00 my time - it would be 6:00 your time. I will be looking forward to talk with you. I love you all!
Love, Sister Musick
Hurrah for Israel!
