MTC. week one

Our first email!
Come to find out her P.days are on friday... so we were pleasantly surprised to hear from her already!
She LOVES her companion! Her name is Sestra Peterson and is from San Antonio Texas. She is a music major, and has a beautiful opera voice. What a perfect match for Brandie!  Brandie is loving every minute of the MTC. She says when she smiles it reaches her eyes:)
She says her language class is very humbling and overwhelming... The teacher only speaks in Croatian  to them so its kinda hard to follow! Her first day she went out in the hall and fell to her knees to ask, no..."beg" for some sort of understanding of the language. When she went back into the classroom, everything just "clicked" :) She is just super happy and loving her first week of the MTC.

the day of goodbyes...

The day finally came where we had to say our goodbyes:(
We started the day off right, at kneaders for breakfast. Then followed that by cuddling on a blanket in the sun back at home;)
1:00 crept up on us way to fast, which meant time for the MTC drop off!
waaahhhhhhhhhh................. :(
But to my surprise, it was a lot easier to let her go than I had expected. There were hundreds of happy smiling cute little missionaries everywhere, ready to welcome her and take my place as her sister for the time being. She was more than ready to be there and ready to learn the teachings of a missionary and the language of her soon to be "people":)
I can't wait to hear about her first companion and her first week in the MTC! 

Sister Brandie Frampton.

called to serve.

We took these images when Brandie was about to turn in her papers... I just love this crazy girl :)
