There are 100 days left of my mission... Wow! 2 weeks left of the transfer and then 2 more transfers left. President and Sister Samuelian have less time with me.

Sister Ure and I got to go to the temple visitors center! This week we have really seen how we are often in the right place at the right time. It has been amazing!

We were running late to dinner one day and as we were driving, we saw someone we were teaching and we got to talk to her. Another time,, we were on our way to our coordination meeting and we saw a guy who volunteered at the food bank with us and we got to talk to him. We walked up a hill to see someone in our area book and they weren't home, but we talked to a member who recently moved into our ward. Then at the visitors center, we saw a member from Sisters than I knew, 2 people from Newberg and Sister Clark!! It was amazing!

I love you all and I hope you have a great week!!

Love, Sister Kelly Martin

Sister Ure and I will be staying in Willamina for another transfer. We have much to be learn from each other still and we are excited for a chance to be able to do so. This week was the best week of missionary work that either of us have ever had. We have seen so many miracles!

A lady called the church this week and someone answered the phone and she told them that she was looking for a church and they told her what time church was and she came! We will teach her this week!

Also a lady we have been teaching went to church for the first time with her granddaughter! We were so excited!

A huge thank you to my family for sending me an Easter package filled with candy and Easter eggs!

Stacy!!! I was so excited to get an Easter egg from you and that it
had the beads I gave you to fix. Thank you so much!!!


My transfers are all double digits now! Only 4 left! It's crazy! Has it really been that long??

We had interviews with the mission president last week. I found out that I go home at the end of July and the Samuelians go home at the beginning of July! I will have a new mission president for the last 3 weeks of my mission!

I will be staying in Willamina for another 6 weeks with a new companion! I found out that someone I taught in Newberg is still taking the lessons and her grandson who I met a few times is getting baptized next month! From what I hear he has changed so much!! It is really cool to hear about seeds that I have planted and how they are blossoming. Springtime is almost here! Sending another companion home is hard. I'm so glad that I got to spend with Sister Drown. I'm excited to hear about what the future holds for her and for me as well.
