So I had written to my missionaries about their friend in the ward, Ryan Robbins, who just got home from his mission and spoke in church yesterday. I told her how I loved the meeting, and shared some of what he bore witness of. This is her response:
This was so good for my heart. I can hear just from this email how much he's changed. That's so powerful.NEAT EXPERIENCE!! I was in Missouri the other day at the Independence Mission home to give them a referral. I looked up at the missionary board and saw "Assistants - Elder Jake Garrick" and I about peed my pants. I left a little note that just said, 'Hey Elder Garrick! Who knew you were an assistant? Good luck! -Sister Siera Gomez (Kansas Wichita Missionary).' I was just so thrilled and touched to see that silly Jake Garrick who was awesome but also kind of a punk is now an assistant and apparently one of the hardest working missionaries they've seen.
