History is being made June 28, 2013.....Washington Seattle is being divided‏

Today is the last P-Day in the history of the Washington Seattle Mission, today having 240 missionaries, and is rather an emotional time for all the missionaries, especially those that have just a couple of month left. President Todd S. Larkin and his wife and family will be released and return to Las Vegas, Nevada. Elder Yoon Hwan Choi, a Seventy of the 1st Quorum is the new Mission President and his wife. The other half of our mission will divided into the Federal Way Mission with President Eaton as their President. This is a glorious event and the privilege to know and work with two presidents will be wonderful and will also be an honor.

Last Monday on P-Day we rode to Seattle on the light rail and took a ferry ride through the Ballard Locks which provide a link for boats between the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal, which connects eastward to Lake Union and Lake Washington. This day was sunny and beautiful and warm...not hot. This lock maintains the water level of fresh water of the lakes at 20-22 feet above sea level.

Wherever we go in this city...and we are getting out and about often....we hear "Hi Sisters" as people continuously recognize us as missionaries and love to chat. We love it!  We continue to work with the less active as we visit and share "Mormon Messages", teach scriptures and sing primary songs with the help of my ipad. These wonderful people love what they feel and they keep coming to church. Today there were 16 at Sacrament Meeting. Our dear friends, Sue and Tracy are getting closer to marriage and we are happy for them.

Nancy, who was baptized last Sunday, was totally unable to come to church today to be confirmed and we held our breath. We checked on her this afternoon and the confirmation wall take place Wed. in the chapel at the church by the Elders. Whew! She had gotten frustrated during the week so there were a plethora of prayers offered this week in her's and our behalf.

We have been doing some proselyting and seeking for non-members. We have found a mother and her 13 year old daughter and she is interested in hearing of our belief. I had no idea Heavenly Father had this in mind for me as I left on my mission but each day I am loving the work more.
Yesterday we were with the Elders on a Church Tour with a Burmese father and I felt such an outpouring of the Spirit. This really is a marvelous work and it is a privilege to share it with others.
I know Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers. Yes, I know it and I also know our prayers usually are not answered when we want it but in Father's time.
May God be with each of you and bless you this week....and will you look for Miracles in your lives. They are there!!!!

Love to all of you,
Sister Frame

Just an update on our Pday Monday:  Whew, what a day....washed sheets, dark batch and white batch:  haircut for the 2 Elders; (Sister Carter did and I was there), hustled to Des Moines for lunch with the Sassers; Bishop called and we hurried back to Tukwila to pick up Foke for a job interview in Federal Way at DI.   Then we hurried back to Burien to get the oil changed and immediately went to Les Schwab to find out about the new tires I need and we will going in at 7:45 in the morning.  Oh my, then we have FHE in 1/2 hour.  Sister Carter finally (13 days) received her lab report on the her esophageal test and she has Barrett's Esophagus.  This is caused by acid reflux and she has 3 lesions in her esophagus which are precursors to cancer.  She will do nothing in the Mission field and the doctor said she should be fine for a year.  Wow!!!!  What a day!

And to all of you...thanks for notes and pictures and emails and phone calls and your continued expressions of love.  I just love all of you with all my heart...I really do!!!!! I am very happy.  This mountain I am climbing is gigantic..BUT  I am getting there...1/3 the way up and I can see a vista that is beautiful and I feel extremely great.   My faith is growing and I know that as I work my tail off and serve and pray and go to church (CPR) my spirit will be kept alive and I will feed it and refuel it daily.  I love these wonderful people in Tukwila.  If you could see the streets and lanes where we travel and the people we pass (including prostitutes and such)  you would pray even harder for me, but really I am doing great!!!!  Just know how much I love my Heavenly Father and I know how indebted I am to Jesus Christ for the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Well, got to run!  Make each day beautiful and may God be with you and bless you....and take the time to look for Miracles!!!!
