"I'll Go Where He Wants Me to Go"--arrival photos

It was a very pleasant surprise to open the link to Sorella Dixon's Mission's Blog this morning and find the arrival photos of Sorella Dixon. She arrived March 05, 2015, so it has been a month of service for her already in Italy. These photos made me cry, I am not certain why. Maybe it's because I miss her. Maybe it's because I will never see or hear her "in action" as a full-time missionary.  Maybe it's because I know what she is doing is so very important, or maybe it is just because I love her....very much. So, I just cry. There is definitely something tender and special about having a missionary who is serving our Heavenly Father full-time. The blessings and feelings are hard to express, but they are real and very tangible. Whatever the case, it sure is great to see photos!!

Arrival in Italy with a Thumbs Up!

In this one, you just get to see the back of her head,
 but that's good enough for me.

"Leave all of  the "drag" (as in airplane drag) of worldly things behind 

 and commit to be full-time missionaries to share the Doctrine of Jesus Christ, our Savior."
