"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."
-Alma 5:45-46,48-49

Valentine's Day/ 1st Transfer! - Now Sister Plumb ins in Huntington, Pasadena area

2/14/16 – A Mother's Sentiment 

To my adorable, amazing, fun loving, full of life, best smile, gorgeous daughter!  Since it is Valentine's day, I want you to know how much I love you!  I miss you terribly but I would not want you any other place.  You are doing the Lord's work and learning so many life lessons at such a young age that will prepare you for marriage, school, motherhood, and life in general.  I am so proud of you and your choices that have led you to where you are in your life.  We can feel the blessings that come from having a missionary.  The spirit has been in our home more abundantly teaching us how to love as our Savior loved.  We are learning everyday and repenting everyday and enjoying every minute of the journey.  We fall at times but are learning to use the Savior to help us get back up and use each other too for support.  So thank you for that missionary spirit that is blessing our lives!  We pray for your missionary successes daily and for your safety everyday!  Talking of safey, I saw some pepper spray that is a key chain the other day, seriously thinking do you think you need it? I know missionaries have the spirit protecting them but that doesn't mean bad things haven't happened before.  I am a worrying mom, but I will send it to you if you think it may help or I will surprise you and send it.  Let me know.  

I am sure you already do, but I know people like hearing from you and how you are doing. They tell me all the time. You are an example more than you know.  Just continue being your wonderful missionary self in your letters. They are great.  I am sure sometimes you are tired and don't feel like writing though, so at those times just remember what I said ;) and maybe it will inspire you - haha!

How was the pizza?  Did you get the Valentine package?  

I love you to the moon and back!  So happy I get to spend eternity with you!  I love my eternal family!

Love, Mom

Zhenya’s response 2/15/16-

Mommy! I love you so much!! Thank you for the chocolates! I am so
sorry I am emailing you late it was transfer day so I am now in
Huntington, Pasadena with sister Vaea! She is from Tonga and I came
out with her 6 months ago!
Thank you so much for that! This is amazing. So this week I actually
bought pepper spray hahaha but now I'm not in Glendale which is pretty
sketchy and Huntington is nicer and smaller so I will be blinking
mostly. Ya this week was crazy and I was getting a bit discouraged but
then I thought about that, that people back home are praying for me
and supporting me and there should be no reason to be discouraged. So
thank you so so much for that!

I got your package!!! Thank you so much for the chocolates!! And thank
you sooooooo much for the pizza! (I called Domino's and sent pizza to Zhenya and her companion as a way to celebrate the Broncos winning the SuperBowl). Sister Ballard and I really needed it. Hahaha it was a rough week for food so it was so worth it! 

Thank you! I love you so much!
Love you!
Sister Plumb
