|President & Sister Holmes|
Her new full-time companion is Sister Nishino from Japan. She is a 29 year old school teacher and is learning English as quickly as she can. Ali wants to learn how to recite her testimony in every language she encounters, so I guess Japanese will be her first challenge. That should be interesting...
We love reading her letters! Ali is completely in her element and is thriving. Although the schedule is packed each day, she's already had some time to reflect on why she's serving and is beginning to have some great experiences.
Ali's latest letter dated August 14th mentioned that workers are already getting the Temple Square grounds prepared for the annual Christmas decorations, which are a magnificent sight.
As her parents, we are grateful to see the exponential growth that Ali is experiencing at this time. We are confident that she will be an excellent ambassador to the church and will be an instrument in the Lord's hands to further the work and bless the lives of those to whom she shares a very meaningful message of hope and light.
