I LOVE THAILAND!!

Not much to say other than I love Thailand!!! And I love God!


Miracles: an amazing companion, fantastic members, and tender mercies from the Lord at every corner

We are starting to work really hard with the members. We have given everyone a little hand out that has quotes from Elder Oaks talk last conference (Yes, I typed it in thai myself) and are setting up return appointments with every one of them to see how their progress in sharing the gospel is going!:)

A white man named Brin came up to us and very poetically and eloquently bible bashed us. We politely smiled, bore our testimony of the truth of this gospel and then tried not to laugh when he “Blessed us” that our minds would be clear and we would be able to better decipher truth and escape this false doctrine. I’ve never really faced that before! No one even knows who God is here.
Please open your mouth and share the gospel with all those around you!! This is the latter days, the last dispensation! God will fill your mouth. I promise.

There are three things all members can do to help share the gospel, regardless of the circumstances in which they live and work. All of us should do all of these.

First, we can all pray for desire to help with this vital part of the work of salvation. All efforts begin with desire.

Second, we can keep the commandments ourselves. Faithful, obedient members are the most persuasive witnesses of the truth and value of the restored gospel. Even more important, faithful members will always have the Savior’s Spirit to be with them to guide them as they seek to participate in the great work of sharing the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

Third, we can pray for inspiration on what we can do in our individual circumstances to share the gospel with others. This is different than praying for the missionaries or praying for what others can do. We should pray for what we can do personally. When we pray, we should remember that prayers for this kind of inspiration will be answered if accompanied by a commitment—something the scriptures call “real intent” or “full purpose of heart.” Pray with a commitment to act upon the inspiration you receive, promising the Lord that if He will inspire you to speak to someone about the gospel, you will do it.

good luck!

I love you all!

Brother Jo!

Inline image 1

This is Brother Jo:)
He lived in America for 9 years though so we call him Bro Jo. Well sometimes I call him dad (that’s a Thai culture thing).
ANYWAY, I’ve been teaching Brother Jo the past THIRTEEN weeks. It has been a roller coaster of a 13 weeks. From “Brother Jo, what the heck??? why did you drink with your friends yesterday??? ughhhh” to when we’d ask him to pray and we’d get all ready to pray (heads bowed, arms crossed) as he would get on his knees and look up at us and then wait for us to follow suit. He’s such a good guy. His faith manifests itself differently than mine but his faith is there and I’m so proud of him and grateful that I was able to help him come to know God. At first, and even now, he EPITOMIZES the scripture john 7:17. Do the will to know the doctrine. Every commandment, he was willing to keep but honestly he did not believe in God. He wanted to know God though so he was willing to do everything we (God) asked. I can’t wait to see the good he does for the church here in Udorn.
Other things?
We ate pizza this week. NO. we MADE pizza this week. The senior couple went home last week which means we got all of their left over food AND their oven. It was heavenly.
I love the sacred time I have to study the scriptures each day. I feel at peace with myself and with my life here on earth.
I love the people here so much. I can’t imagine ever leaving them.
I love you all! Pray daily. If you feel like no one is listening, ask Him straight out if He is there. If you really want to know and are willing to look for the answer, He will tell you

2017 :)

Good morning!!

This email comes to you from the great city of Udorn at 5 am! (we are going to go on an adventure today so decided to email before just in case).
Updates!!
I am still in Udorn (it’s close to Laos)
I have a new companion! Her name is Sister Nixon. She is from Wyoming and she is the sweetest thing ever. This story basically describes her personality: the other day we were about to start companionship study off with a hymn and I went to go grab my hymnbook but realized it wasn’t there. I told my companion “dang it, my hymn book must be downstairs”. Without a second to think, Sister Nixon bolted, I mean BOLTED, out of her chair and booked it downstairs to grab my hymnbook from off the table. And she’s super patient with me like when I cry because a member I’ve been working with so hard for 2 transfers didn’t come to his own little sister’s baptism or when I cry because I receive a really really good email from a friend. (I tear up so easily now:P Happiness, sadness, stress, hunger, all of the above)
Other updates? It is almost mango season so you know what that means!! Mango sticky rice!!! I’m so excited.
It’s 2017!
Miracles!!
So right now we have an investigator who only speaks Isan (it’s a dialect of Thai closer to Laos). Most people here speak Isan but they also speak Thai. This investigator doesn’t:P And since I don’t have a Thai companion anymore I really get to see the gift of tongues in play. Sometimes I walk out of those lessons still not knowing exactly what was said but I receive confirmation from the Holy Ghost that God will help her. She has two friends at church and they helped us teach the 10 commandments. It was a miracle because literally just the day before we taught her, the Elders had taught these two members the 10 commandments so they were all excited and ready to teach their new friend and I could trust that it would be explained correctly.
For part of this week (long story short) the other sister and I were companions and looked after two areas. It was amazing. We were looking for an investigator of hers and we thought we had found the house and went inside and sat down with the father and daughter while waiting for the mother. When the mother arrived, we realized she was the wrong Sister Da but we sat down and taught them anyway:) And they were actually really interested! And were in my area!! We also taught another cute little family just because we happened to be listening to the spirit and in the right place and at the right time.
Also! I found out why my back hurts so dang much. Did you know it is possible to mount your bike wrong every day multiple times a day for a whole year?? Because I have been. Unfortunately the correct way is a little hard in a skirt but I’ll try.
I love you all!! PLEASE READ YOUR BOOK OF MORMON EVERYDAY. Not for my sake, but for your happiness. And always keep in remembrance the power of prayer.
Until next week!
Sister Casper

Reunited:)

We had zone conference and District Conference last week. It was amazing. I got to be with both of my “daughters” for three days. If you can’t tell by my smile, I was super super happy.

I also got to see everyone from my last area at church. These are some of God’s elect children that I had the privilege of teaching while I was over in Sakon Nakhon. I cried while saying goodbye for the second time but the one on the far right (who got baptized soon after I left the area) said “it’s okay. we will see you at the temple” so of course I started crying more.
Anyway, this week all the members are hyped for missionary work because a member of the Seventy spoke to everyone about the importance of member missionary work. He forbade them from saying they aren’t free! so we are definitely excited for this week!
Also he spoke about marriage and then (because I was sitting in the front row) he looked right at me and said “now missionaries, hold your horses”. hahaha:)
But seriously, seeing my old companion and the members who I had grown to love and had been through so much with made me so happy. And it got me thinking about how I’ll feel when I see my Heavenly Father and Savior again. This week try and think of how you’ll feel when you see God again and what He will say to you about your work and life here on this earth.
I know God loves each and every one of you:)!!

Aww:) Love these girls so so much! Sister First, Cream and Ploy. They will change the world!:)
Love,
Your missionary in Thailand

“I love missionaries that don’t have rabies”

Hello all of you!!
MIRACLE:
So today is my wonderful, amazing companion’s birthday and we really really wanted to be able to send pictures home today. So we biked our way to a 7-11 to buy a working card reader (Don’t underestimate 7-11’s in Thailand, I’ve bought a plane ticket from a 7-11 before here) and unfortunately, they didn’t have one. So we start biking to the internet place and all of a sudden I remembered we pass like 7 kodak stores EVERY DAY. They’re bound to have a card reader, right? So we pull into a kodak and I start talking to the really cute old man behind the counter. Long story, short: He gave me a card reader FOR FREE:) It was a birthday miracle! I apologize in advance for the numerous amounts of pictures I am about to send…
1. In case you forgot what mission I was in, this is the email we got from President today. No going to Lopburi!

2. Which one of these is not like the other? Jk. These kids were adorable. I taught them some english and they taught me some Lao (FYI people in the area I am serving in speak Thai and a dialect of Thai that is very very close to Lao)

3. This is our cute little RC on the day of her baptism. She is amazing. She has been helping us teach her cousin and is already a little missionary herself.
It has seriously been a week of miracles. When you trust in Him, you will see the miracles that He is giving you.
(more pictures to come!:)

4. This was at one of the waterfalls we hiked last week!! Look at those rice cheeks…


5. This is Thailand hahaha. Eating Dewberry cookies and drinking watermelon and banana milk on a dirt road surrounded by water buffalo, cows, and endless greenery.

6. My awesome district and some members:)

7. Today is this awesome missionary’s birthday:)) I have seriously been so so privileged to have served with her. I technically am her “trainer” but I swear she came pre-trained. She has taught me so much more than I’ve taught her. She came into the field already brimming with love for the people and enthusiasm for the work. She has not ceased to amaze me with her skills, testimony, and sense of humor:) Happy Birthday, Sister Coleman! (also a special thanks to the elders for dropping off banana pancakes at our house at 7:30 in the morning!!:)

Last thing:

Life is hard. Life is freaking difficult. We face seemingly insurmountable obstacles: our dreams die, relationships end, money runs out, physical and mental maladies dissipate our hope, we are rejected, beaten, and hurt. Sometimes you fall down the stairs while at a funeral and bruise your arm and pride pretty badly. But I want all of you to know that I know with all of my heart and soul that
God lives.
God answers prayers.
“And it came to pass that the Lord God caused that there should be a furious wind blow upon the face of the waters, towards the promised land; and thus they were tossed upon the waves of the sea before the wind. And it came to pass that they were many times buried in the depths of the sea, because of the mountain waves which broke upon them, and also the great and terrible tempests which were caused by the fierceness of the wind. And it came to pass that when they were buried in the deep there was no water that could hurt them, their vessels being tight like unto a dish, and also they were tight like unto the ark of Noah; therefore when they were encompassed about by many waters they did cry unto the Lord, and he did bring them forth again upon the top of the waters” (Ether 6:5-7)
God is pushing us towards the promised land. Trust in Him.
I love you all!
Sister Casper

Miracles!

What is a miracle?

Finding a swing set at night and taking a second to swing with your companion
Getting amazing emails from family, friends, missionaries, people you really love
When you are eating chips while biking and one falls BUT lands on your knee and stays there until you are able to pick it up and eat it
Being able to see the stars at night (there’s a lot of pollution here)
Receiving enough strength from the Lord to ask someone you are teaching if you can throw away their bag of weed for them (the bag of weed you practically had to sit on while teaching the lesson). And then when they take it and “promise” they will throw it away themselves, trusting that the Lord will bless you and your companion for your efforts.
An awesome member who helps you teach every single day in a week:)
Watermelon milk, dewberries, American gravy, Nutella and bananas,’nuff said
When you bike to a less active member’s house and pray so hard the whole way that they will open their heart and praying for the words to say, only to find out they aren’t home. And then immediately (because as a missionary you learn to take rejection and disappointment pretty well) flipping your bike around to visit another less active member and when you arrive being given the exact words to say and questions to ask and feeling the Holy Spirit in abundance.
When you (3 and a half transfers in country) and your greenie companion  teach a brand new RC and her cousin (investigator) and despite the language barrier are still able to help them come closer to Christ.
An amazing companion who makes your bed or does your dishes or writes you a sweet note just because and who LOVES the work:)
I know Christ lives. I know this gospel is true. I know that only through keeping the commandments can we find true happiness in this life. God loves all of you:)!
Love,
Sister Casper
 (p.s. I bought a new card reader and it didn’t work. Oh well. Maybe next week!)

I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!

Inline image 1

I really don’t have any time today:( So I am super sorry this’ll be a really short email! But there are pictures so it’s okay!
First of all: My sister got married this week!! I am so sad I couldn’t be there but it’s okay:) I am so grateful for her wonderful example. She looked beautiful!! And if someone wants to photoshop me into this “sibling family” picture, that’d be great;)
Second of all: Life is so great:) I love Thailand. We had three members bring friends to church on Sunday. I am so proud of their desire to share this gospel with their friends and family.
Third of all: I know my Savior lives. I know He loves me and that He loves all of you too. I know God will help us with everything in our life if we just turn to Him. I’m learning how important that is:)
Fourth of all: Sometimes Branch Presidents like to throw out random songs during sacrament meeting and make you play them even if you’ve never ever played it. Let me just say, praying really works. If it’s important to us, it’s important to God:) Also, I wish I had listened to my piano teachers and mom more and practiced a lot before my mission haha.
Fifth of all: I love being a missionary. I love waking up at 6:30 am and riding my bike for miles on end and hunting spiders in our house. I love teaching God’s children. I love being able to sacrifice all that I am and all that I have for Him and for the building up of this kingdom right now. I can’t say everything is perfect in the life of a missionary and I am CERTAINLY not a perfect missionary or person but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that we are building up the kingdom of God and doing His will. And trying. Sincerely trying.
Thank you for everything, everyone:)
Enjoy the pictures:)
Sorry I’m getting fat. Don’t judge. Rice=Fat and rice is all they eat;)
Love,
Sister Casper

“Be obedient in applying and reapplying”

Hello my family!!!

So that is our newest mission rule. “Be obedient in applying and reapplying” bug spray. The mosquitoes are crazy here. My companion was afraid I had dengue fever because I have 20+ mosquito bites and I got sick last week. BUT no worries! Just a cold and unrelated mosquito bites haha. Everything is all good here:) But now we try and reapply as OFTEN as possible. But sometimes I feel like we just sweat it all off and get bitten anyway. And our mission president came out and said sisters in this mission can’t wear pants BUT he gave each of us money to go buy 3 long skirts and bug spray so it’s a good compromise:) 

So right now we don’t have a ton of investigators because we have 6 missionaries for a pretty small area and everyone gives their referrals to the Elders (everyone loves a good Elder in Thailand;)) haha BUT we are making ourselves busy visiting less actives and even strong members who need help sharing the gospel themselves or just extra กำลังใจ (motivation). This week we talked with แม่จิน who is super active and is always helping the missionaries yet even she had a need that we as missionaries could help with! She was too scared to talk to her son about the gospel and we just had the opportunity to testify that God would help her and the spirit was so strong. Everyone has a need that can be filled by bearing heartfelt testimony of gospel truths. So many times this week we just visited strong members of the ward and left with the spirit flooding our hearts. Often we didn’t realize their need but the Lord knew it and directed us towards them. He truly does love all of His children. ive really been pondering about what makes someone become less active this week. I used to just think it was because they were lazy or got offended (I know, not very nice thoughts:( ) but now I’m realizing there are many more reasons some people stop coming to church, one such being (as PMG states): “when we as investigators become members of the church, we are surprised to discover that we have entered into a completely foreign world….at first the trip is exciting, our mistakes even amusing, then it becomes frustrating….and it’s at these stages of frustration and anger that we leave” I’d never really thought all of our customs, traditions, vocabulary are strange but to a new convert, they can be down right scary if we don’t welcome and invite them and nurture them continually in a loving way.
Also! I’m already getting a watch tan! Goals! Also! I have the sweetest companion! She sacrifices so much for me. This week I realized she has been using the bad mattress AND the bad chair so I wouldn’t have to. She is amazing and so selfless. She inspires me.
I love how much the ward members want to help here!! One person had a million referrals for us and we just followed her on our bikes to house after house until one of them was finally home. I loved her enthusiasm even if the first few referrals fell through.
So my kickstand on my bike was acting a little funky this week and I asked Elder McKay to take a look at it and he does and says nothing’s wrong but as he’s backing way he says “Whoa! Sister! This is super dangerous!!” He then proceeds to fix my wheel which apparently could have popped off any time I was riding it and we ride on some pretty big roads. God protects us. I know He does. I am grateful for the prompting to have the Elders look at my bike.
One of my favorite miracles from this week! One night we were having companionship prayer and I was praying and I was just listing people who needed help asking God to grant their specific needs (help Sister ___ read the scriptures every day, etc, etc) when a name popped into my head. Normally I wouldn’t just say it but I felt like I should so I simply said “bless Sister กลอย” and that’s it. After the prayer my companion and I laughed a little bit because of the awkwardness of me just throwing in a name there and not praying for anything specific (and I also had only met her once so it’s weird that I even remembered her name). Anyway, the next day we get to church and everyone is talking about Sister กลอย! We found out that day she was actually in the hospital with an infection we had not known about. We went and visited her and shared with her that we knew God truly loved her and watched out for her. We had the prompting to pray for her before even knowing anything about her circumstance! I know God looks out for each and every one of us and often blesses us through the service of other people.
Us and แม่จิน!!! Love her. She’s like our mom.

It was a pretty view…until I took a picture of me in front of it. (I’m on my bike trying not to fall off)

Just chilling with crocodiles. The worker would have let me go in but the member who took us wouldn’t because she was too scared for me. The Elders got to go in though:( I really wanted to but didn’t want to upset แม่จิน:)

That’s all for today!!
I love you all!!! Help your missionaries in your ward!! It truly is a blessing to have members who desire to help the missionaries (especially the sisters;))
Sister Casper (and yes many people call me sister phii nooy naarag which means cute little ghost haha)

ลูกครึ่ง!!!!

Hola Hola Hola!!!

Mom, Dad, I think you need to retake that genealogy DNA test because Thai people swear I’m ลูกครึ่ง which means half Thai. I literally cannot meet a person without them asking if I’m half Thai. Apparently I just have a face that looks very Thai like….I guess the whiteness of my skin doesn’t deter them. Anyway, it’s just funny because my go to answer after they ask me if I’m ลูกครึ่ง is no!!! I’m 100 percent ฝรั่ง (falang) which means foreign (AKA white). Also, it’s hilarious because in Thailand, when Thai people see a ฝรั่ง they’ll yell “ฝรั่ง ฝรั่ง Hello Hello Hello!”. My companion was like if we were in America and we saw a Mexican and said “Mexican! Mexican! Hola! Hola! Hola!” we would break so many societal rules and people would not like us but here in Thailand they do it all the time haha.

ANYWAY! In other EXCITING news!! I was transferred!!! Greenies aren’t usually transferred out of their greenie areas until after they’ve completed training (or two transfers) here so many missionaries were surprised when 6 out of the 9 from my MTC district were moved to different areas or got new trainers after just one transfer. But I guess the Lord just needed us in different places. I for one am already seeing the blessings of my new area and companion. I am so grateful for my first area, transfer, companion and everything I learned but I am also grateful for this new opportunity and new challenges.
A few factoids I’m sure you are all interested to know:
I am now in Sakon Nakhon which is a 10 hours bus ride from my last area! Whereas before I was in Bangkok, now I’m closer to Laos.
One of my many miracles from this week was that after an all night bus ride [and these are not first class busses] we arrived in my new area at 6:30 am and immediately started our missionary day, sticking to the schedule and working hard despite our lack of sleep. That was one of the best days of my mission. I don’t know if I can explain why but when you sacrifice for the work, obey and just keep making every moment count, the joy and blessings are immeasurable.
My new companion is Sister Hoffman! She’s from Wyoming and this is actually her last transfer but I have already decided she is not allowed to go back home because I love her too much. She is THE BEST. She works hard and loves everyone she meets. She’s also HILARIOUS. She’s taught me so much already about perseverance and charity and obedience but also that fresh fruit probably makes your hair grow faster and that I need to remember to take my helmet off when we get to places or I’ll look super weird (yes I’ve already forgotten to take my helmet off but just once)
OH! That reminds me! I’m in a biking area!! What?! I didn’t have a bike and since this was super sudden, the wonderful Sister Johnson is letting me use her bike since she’s serving in Bangkok right now and doesn’t need it. I LOVE biking. I’m sure everyone by now has fainted with surprise. Yes, this girl who has never actually gone on a real bike ride (unless around the neighborhood cul-de-sac counts) is biking and loves it so much. Riding in a skirt is hard though…and monsoon season is coming up so I’ll let you know how I feel about biking in about a month when I’m soaked to the bone while I ride;) But for now, I just love the feeling of wearing my missionary badge and helmet and biking in my skirt through the streets of Thailand:)
Sakon Nakhon is how I had imagined Thailand would be. Very rural, very cute, very hot:) Some of the people just live in shacks of wood and sheet metal. Yet they have the biggest smiles. The members here are already like family. They practically adopt the missionaries as their own so I am never short of hugs or food or love. Which reminds me; I am now serving with Elder Feist, Elder Daily, Elder Walker and Elder McKay. Elder Walker and Elder McKay pretended they didn’t know english my whole first day with them but they felt so guilty by the end of the day they spilled haha. They are all super great, dedicated missionaries.
My first Sunday (*sorry I have so much to say today. I’m super super happy. I’m literally just bouncing in the bright orange chair of this little internet place as I type*) in Sakon Nakhon was amazing. God answers prayers. He really does. So only Elder Feist and Elder Daily can play the piano and only a few songs so of course they assigned me to play today to give the members a break from the same songs. Well usually the missionary gets to pick the song they want to play but the Branch President picked some songs he really wanted to sing and was like, I know you can play these. Haha. Right before the meeting started I just prayed that the Lord would allow me to play to bring in the spirit for that Sacrament meeting. And it went so well. I promise, if you want to play the piano well, just be a missionary. Another missionary attested to me too that he feels like he’s so much better at playing the piano on his mission even though he has less time to practice. After that I had to speak in church for the first time! And again the Spirit just filled my mouth. I know it wasn’t me. It was the spirit speaking through me. After that in Relief Society I had to translate………That was…an adventure…Sister Christensen and Elder Christensen ( a senior couple) are visiting Sakon Nakhon and my companion was already translating in RS for someone else and Sister Christensen sat down next to me and I had to just go for it. It was a good practice experience. I really couldn’t explain much but I think we both got a decent gist so it was okay:)
We have a really cute investigator right now whose older sister is a member. Her name is Sister May. But her parents won’t let her get baptized and she’s not 20 yet (which is when you are recognized as an adult in Thailand) so we are just teaching her, showing love to her and praying her parents’ hearts will open because she is so ready for baptism. She knows everything and loves it. We actually don’t have any other investigators besides a couple that are so ready for baptism too but are having an issue (because of the complexity of getting married in Thailand) getting married so they can’t get baptized yet. But they are super faithful and are praying everything will work out. So we are praying for new investigators this week!
I know God is cognizant of each and every single one of you. He wants to answer your prayers. This week I read in the Liahona about a mom and her little girl. The mom had to leave the room for a second and told her little girl not to touch the iron because it was super hot and would hurt her. When the mom returned the little girl was hiding behind the couch crying. She refused to tell her mom what had happened but eventually she admitted that she touched the iron. The mom immediately rushed her to the kitchen to rinse her little girl’s burn with cold water. From this experience the mom realized that God gives us these commandments for a reason, to protect us. Often though, we don’t realize the danger and sin anyway, ending up hurt and in pain. Like the little girl we hide, ashamed and afraid our Father in Heaven will be mad, ashamed, and won’t forgive us. We are too young, like the little girl, to fix the wounds ourselves. But like the loving mother, our Father in Heaven and His son, Jesus Christ, want to heal our wounds. When we make a mistake we need to go to them and show them our wounds, our pain, so that they can apply the healing balm of the Atonement. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and all that is possible through Him. I am grateful for this time on earth to experience trials and pains and joys and happiness, to make mistakes, and to repent and come closer to my Father in Heaven.
Keep smiling everyone:)
Love,

Because He Lives

Hello my family and my extended family and my people that I consider family!! Oh and hello to Parker too…I guess….

Anyway!
Can I just say I am so grateful for family? We had the opportunity to Skype today and I can’t thank God enough for each and every one of them (including Parker too, I guess). They are the funniest, kindest, most spiritual people I know and if you don’t know them, you are seriously missing out. I told my sisters I have eaten a whole jar of peanut butter by myself in just two weeks and they only judged a little!! That’s real love. And my whole family gave me the big loving push that I needed to keep fighting the good fight:)
While last week was extremely frustrating, this week was one full of miracles! But the funniest part is: if you were to watch a video of this week and last week, they wouldn’t look much different!! Life truly does change based on our attitude. Nothing changed except my heart yet it seemed to me that everything was a million times better.
This week we taught a wonderful man named Brother Golf. Even though I have never met him before and I barely understand him, I have the most amazing sensation that I once knew him. Every time I’m with him and we are teaching, it feels familiar. That’s something I need to remember throughout my mission. Everyone that we meet on this earth already accepted the gospel of Jesus Christ at one point! (in the pre-existence). Every. Single. Person. We aren’t teaching them a totally brand new concept. Their spirits are already familiar with it; as missionaries we are just reminding their spirits of truths they already accepted once and through our teaching/testifying, we are trying to coax their brain to listen to the voice of their own spirit and the Holy Spirit as well. Don’t be afraid to share the gospel. This is a precious truth which we have the responsibility of sharing with those who have not yet received it. Most of our friends will appreciate our attempt at sharing something we love with them and believe is important, even if they don’t end up accepting it.
This week we also taught the parents of Sister Eem and Brother Braem (my favorite kids 10 and 12 years old that have already been baptized). We decided to teach the plan of salvation. At the end I shared my testimony: I have chosen to leave my family for a year and a half. My family whom I love dearly and whom I miss so so much. I chose to do this though so that I could help families like yours be together for eternity. I want every family to know that they don’t have to say goodbye after this life.
I know I will get to joke around with my sisters and be teased by my brothers after this life too:) What a great thought:)
Because Jesus Christ lives….I can live with my family forever.
Because He lives…I can smile despite the storms
Because He lives…I can eat spicy food, learn to speak Thai, and survive the heat!
Because He lives…I am happy!!!
Please send me your own Because He lives statement:) I’d love to know what blessings you’ve seen in your life “Because He lives”
And I still can’t send pictures….I’ll figure it out next week!!
I love you all!! Keep smiling!!
Sister Casper
