Greetings From Tukwila, Washington!

This is Esther...we are her 2 new mothers. Her mother died in Burma when she was 10
Next to her are her sons, Peter 16; John 19: David 18. They are our 3 new grandsons. They love us.  The Father's name is Foke, but he had not come from workl This is an incredible family!!!!!

I am writing Sunday evening@ 6:00 after a beautiful Sabbath Day.  Sister Carter and I were responsible for 12 individuals coming to Sacrament Meeting that have been less active and not been there and it is just awesome to see them and their expressions and their love for what it being said.  Wow, I love this work!
       D&C 4:2   "Therefore, o ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve Him with all your heart, might, mind and strength;  that ye may stand blameless before Him at the last day."
I want all of you to know how much I love this work!  Just know that we, Sister Carter and  I, are
working very hard and love what we see is happening.  This a great opportunity to serve and there are many, many priceless experiences that are continuing to mold my life and deepen my commitment to Jesus Christ. We have been taught of the many seen and unseen forces that work to prepare people to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives or prepare them to be "Rescued and be reminded of those feelings they once had for the Savior and of the joy they felt at their baptism.  I know miracles happen every day, many being small, but they happen and I am a recipient of personal revelation each day.  I stand of a witness of the Love of God for His Children!
    The Book of Mormon speaks of the Lamanites who "are striving with unwearied diligence  to bring back their brethren to the knowledge of the truth"  Helaman 15:5-6   Sister Carter and I are working extremely hard to follow the examples of the Lamanites and to bring our brothers and sisters back too the commitments they made at baptism. I pray each day that I will strive to keep my heart turned to God and to strive continually to do good.  According to Elder Bednar our conversions to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is an ongoing process and not a onetime event.  We do it line upon line and God.
      Roberta has been without all her top teeth for about a year except for 2 teeth.  She is extremely frightened of dentists and her last 2 visits have been postponed because her anxiety causes her blood pressure too rise.  She is 63 and has not been active since being a teenager. We met her in Jan and love her to death!  She has such simple faith; listens and learns as we teach lessons; cried the first time she took the sacrament after so many years of being away and now never misses anything at the church.  We suggested she call the Elders and get a blessing the night before her Monday appointment to have a tooth pulled.  She was going to call us and have us call the Elders....then a thought came that she should call the Elders.  She called them. They called us to meet them there.  They came.  The blessing of peace and calm and Father's love for her was just beautiful.  Elder Buckway is 6'5" and he stood much taller that night.  Elder Nebeker anointed her.  Well, the lesson that faith as small as a mustard seed can bring about mighty things was felt last Sunday evening.   She went to the dentist and was not at all frightened.  He blood pressure was fine and at the end of 1 hour 15 minutes Roberta walked away with greater faith in the Priesthood of God and the blessing that was given to her by the Elders.
..."Be strong and of a good courage;  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."   Joshua 1:9  All of you have a beautiful week through your challenges and your good times. This is a glorious time to be see the Kingdom of God roll forth and to be a part of this wonderful plan.
Thank you so much for your notes and letters and your support.  All my love,
Sister Frame
