"The standard of truth has been erected. No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing. Persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble and calumny may defame but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly and independent 'till the purposes of God have been accomplished and the great Jehovah shall say the work is done." -Joseph Smith

Our ecclesiastical leader here in the Quad Cities was able to check in with Hermana Myers and her mission president.  I am grateful Hermana Myers is comfortable telling things as they are and as she feels even if that means the rest of us may worry. Sometimes ignorance can be bliss.

We are grateful that Chloe has a wonderfully caring mission president and that he allowed President Cropper, our stake president, a chance to talk to Chloe and let her know she can do it and that everyday may not be the euphoria she had planned as her mission but she can recognize the good that is around her like we all have to do on the learning curve of life.

One great thing is that President Cropper asked her to quantify her week on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being over the moon, so we know better how she is feeling.  When they talked she was a 5, so we are happy with that.

She knows she can do it and President Cropper encouraged her to look for those fellow children of God she can touch and reach out to.

Ken and I feel much more at ease about the situation and appreciate the concern and support we have felt from everyone.  I really do think we learn from working through what seems difficult at the time with help from those who love us.  Isn't that what it means to comfort those who stand in need of comfort?  Thanks! Let us all press on in the work of the Lord!

Alma 17:11
And the Lord said: Go forth . . . and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls.
