A trip to Monroe

We had the wonderful opportunity to go visit Sister Burnham in Monroe on Saturday. We wanted to be able to see her on Christmas, but Christian is on-call so we wouldn't be able to make it. So, I called her mission President to see if we could come down for a early Christmas visit.
After I left a message at the mission office I got a call from Brianne a couple of hours later and was SO excited to hear her voice!

Monroe is only and hour and fifteen minutes away from Sterling Heights so it was a prefect Saturday trip to see Brianne. I made her favorite dinner chicken broccoli casserole and some other goodies to stock up her kitchen.
Here are some pictures from our trip. . .

I never knew Monroe had their own MTC

We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant and the kids had a blast playing with Aunt Brianne. Brianne said it was weird to have the kids call her Brianne and not "Sister."

Brianne was so happy and had nothing but good things to say about the mission, her companion and the people she has been teaching. Her companion said that ever since Brianne got there she has been so full of the spirit and such a great missionary.

Only an hour away I have to keep reminding myself that Brianne is on a mission and not just visiting. It is hard not to think about her all the time.

She sends her love to everyone!
