Sister Ison – January 2019

Vancouver Washington Mission Office Address 2223 NW 99th St. Vancouver WA 98665

She is doing great and trying to soak up everything last minute of her time as a missionary. She was transferred 2 weeks ago to a small town called Scatter Creek. She is training a new missionary Sister Stevens from Clinton, Utah. She loves Sister James and loves the challenges of being a trainer.  She realizes how fast that her mission is coming to an end and is working hard to finish strong. She has a short 10 weeks left on her mission and although her family is excited for her to come home, she is struggling with the fact that it is that close, she loves being a missionary and would stay if her Mission President would allow it. I wanted to share this from her email this past week

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!   I hope you have all had the best time with family and friends! Most importantly I hope you are all focused on the Savior this season and what He has done for us!

  This week has been very good and hard at the same time! None the less how grateful I am to be with such amazing people this Christmas day! I am so excited for this time that I have to be on a mission and to be serving The Lord! Also I am so grateful for all of the missionaries that I get to be around this Christmas season!

  How I love this time of the year! I pray that you will each remember how much The Savior loves you and how because of His birth we have this opportunity to be here and to be able to return to our Father in heaven. I know that my Redeemer lives. I know Heavenly Father loves us! I know that as we remember The Savior today to celebrate his birth that we will feel more peace and joy because of Him. I love you all and I hope you know you are all so loved! Enjoy this time with loved ones and I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
