When Molly decided to serve a mission, she joked that she was going to be called to Utah. When she actually got the call to Provo she could not stop laughing. Whenever people asked where she was going and she answered Provo, there was always a pause and then a polite response of how nice it would be. She would always reply, “Go ahead and laugh, I did.” Her letters are full of that same humor and enthusiasm. As a family we look forward to Mondays, like never before. We love hearing about the lives she is touching and seeing her grow in ways that are only possible on a mission. Her love of the Savior is growing and her desire to serve Him inspiring us all.
Molly entered the MTC on August 19, 2015. She is serving in Nephi, UT now, her second area. She and her companion cover 17 wards. Molly is loving serving the people in Utah, and with 17 wards she is keeping busy. She is looking forward to working at the open house for the new Provo City Center Temple.
In a recent letter she wrote,
Wednesday was just full of miracles, it was so cool. We decided to
just walk around town and nobody was on the streets, so we stopped and
said a prayer. Within five minutes we met a nonmember (a big deal in
Utah missions). He was super nice. He lives outside our area, and
wasn’t really interested, but it was still great to talk to him. We
showed him the Christmas video and talked about it for a while. It was
pretty great. I was so excited when he said he wasn’t lds that I was
giddy. Then we headed over to our lesson with our investigator.
The elders were teaching him back when we had elders.
Apparently they just could not get him to set a baptism date. During
the lesson I just really felt like I should ask him to be baptized on
January 9, and he accepted! BAM. Sisters working miracles over here.
Then we headed to Ward Christmas Party Round Three (the last and final
round is tonight). Some lady started talking to us, when she mentioned
her two oldest children need to be baptized. So we got two new
investigators! It was pretty great.
