(In response to my stating we are having super cold -40c weather...)um ewwww. thats grose. icky icky icky. well it's be kind overcast and rainy this week, but i think its clearing up. so stuff to tell you, so one of our investigstors dropped us, sad face. but we got a new one that we are both sooo excited about. like tottaly pumped. sister W just thought it be cool if you two could converse so she sent her mom your info and i sent you her's.
ok. on wedensday we went to mutual with the laurals and painted pottery. was much fun. Saturday was J's baptism and that was just so spectacular! There's a song we listen to and I think the lyrics go well with the situation, " The most wonderful sound I ever heard, was the sound of water running in the church. As someone I'd come to love got dressed in white, my eyes saw their first glimpse of heaven's light."

so happy.

so if you could look up Kokopeli for me that wouild be awesome. i think he's good luck and like, the god of fertility or something but he's everywhere here. i have pics.

i love the Sawyers. they are so fun. (A family in the ward she is serving in)

yup yup. so a few days ago i tripped and it wasn't spectacular or anything but i jarred my wrist pretty good and i pulled a muscle in my leg. luckily we have a massage therapist in the ward and she's helped.

well im running out of time.

love you lots



Canadian Gold

Dear momma,

I heard about the medals, sooooo happy and proud and rubbing it in my comps face in a nice way. but yeah, Canada dominates Hockey.

so it's all warm here starting to be green and robins are everywhere. all is well. ummmmmmmm ooh yeah. if you could in my Easter pkg send some talks by John Bytheway and Hank Smith. sooo funny and I want some. sister F is cute. we were greeting and handing programs and she came and shook my comps hand and said "you I need to hug" and hugs me and says" this is from your mom" and I say " sister F." yeah. 'twas awesome. so it's funny how the people in the area have more contact with you that I do....

I don't have a lot of time this week so it's shorter that usuall, sorry, I guess i'm like chayce. (Chayce's letters home were usually shorter than this one)

but I do get to go to J's baptism. i'll take pic.

love you

Tender Mercies...

So I have become Facebook Friends with the mother of a missionary serving in our ward...who just happens to be from Kaylee's mission, specifically, the stake she is currently serving in. As this wonderful missionary mother is serving in the Stake Primary Presidency, she travels to other wards to visit. Today (Sunday, February 23, 2014) she met my sweet missionary daughter on a visit. Here is the message she wrote me...

"I just delivered a hug from you to your beautiful missionary daughter! She was greeting people at the door of her ward as I was leaving the ward conference of the 9:00 ward. I went up and shook her companions hand and then looked at her and said "For you, though, I have a hug." And she hugged me and said "Sister Fairbanks!" I didn't even have to tell her who I was. She is doing great! She's super cute!"

Love that my missionary daughter is being looked after and loved by the members! :)

Great things are happening...

February 18, 2014

Yes package sorry i ment to tell you last week but i forgot. we wore the socks on friday. i got both the eatmore bars cause sister W is allergic to nuts....yup...they were yummy! Just as i prommised i took pictures of stuff. i'll probebly have to send like 3 emails to fit them all.

cool about rob, i'll pray for him ;)

awesome sause about elder R! (Elder R is our friend who finally got his visa for the Netherlands and left this week after serving in Ohio for almost 3 months)
ooooo so J is getting baptised on march 1st and im going to get permission to go cause she wants me to sing and bare testimony and i love her soooo much! it technicaly wont be my baptism but it so is.

not fun on the hurt toes...sad face :(

nice pic of chayce, that's hot... i liked the group letter, so funny.

so we've been doing better, we have like 1 investigator and like 3 potentials that we have appointments to go see. things are moving forward. forward!

sooo Sister W's old collage roommate is coming to our mission next mounth. yeah...i wonder if'f she'll be training her but i doubt it cause it doesnt make sence for them to split us up since we're white washing the area but it's happend before and you never know with President murdock, or the Lord i suppose. we'll see what happens we still have 3 weeks in the transfer so...

yup yup. so we have a BIG zone training tomorrow when i say BIG i mean LONG like from 7:30 - 3:30, that's 8 hours, president will be coming and doing interviews. sooo LONG. we have to get up super early to be there on time.

so that's my life,

love you much much

NOOOO WAYYYYY President Prince. has a nice ring to it. Our old bishop was called to be Stake President...)
the Sawyers who we had dinner with told me about Elder Fairbanks mom. I'll be sure to look for her. not that i know what she looks like but anyways. the Sawyers are soo funny. they raise rabits for meat so we both got pelts. lol they dont start buchering until like march so no meat for us. adn they've offered us the option to come and go as we please even if tehy're not there we can come in and raid the fridge. (why does fridge have a 'd' but refrigerator doesnt?) tehy promised they'd keep sherbet for me and popcicles fro my comp. soo funny.

soooo we mostly go visit the members but we did get 3 new gators on saterday while i was in GJ on exchanges. but while i was there i met some very strange people. had a nice conversation with one. she's not interested but it was still good. and one reeealllllly missinformed old man...reeeealllly missinformed....

anyways. I havent aken any pics but i promise i will this week. Promise.

loving you lots

Where in the world is Sister J?

February 3, 2014

Sister Johnson is in Fruita. Fruita 2nd. we're white washing the area meaning that we're basically starting from scratch. the elder who were here last transfer had to be emergency transferred due to disobedience and they left it a big giant mess of messy stuff. so we need to work on getting the members back in to the swing of missionary work and get our books all up to date and cleaned up. today we're going to be shopping in Junction and cleaning our apartment cause it really needs it. like bad.

I'm kind of stressed but we've been given some good ideas on how to move forward. Sister W is my new companion. she's nice.

oooooooo funny talk. Hank Smith 'Friends' sooooooooo funny! listen to it. oh, could you possibly in your next package send me some talks like from John Bytheway and the like? I havent gotten you'r package yet but it should be coming. It must be hard to keep track of all the missionaries and their mail. lol.

ok so the pics they were all gators. J is on date for baptism along with her two children. I'm praying that I'll be able o go . I'll probably need special permission but I don't think it should be a problem cause we're not that far from Delta. and we're really close to Utah. like 15 miles away from Utah, like our area goes all the way to Utah. we're the very faaaarrrrr end of the mission.

if you could make sure I have some money in my account. we have some hard core shopping to do and I need a GPS. not now but later.

If you could tell Chayce. My companion is Jeremy from Studio C's sister. And he just had a baby boy two days ago. I'm in the know.

so yeah. that's my life in Fruita. Frutia is like Drumheller, Dinosaurs every where. they have some trail and museums that we'll probably go to some day.


love you much much,



This week.....short and sweet

January 27, 2014

Dear mommy,

let me explain some slang terms so you'll understand. you trainer in the mission is called your parent so sis D is my mom, her trainer is my grandma and so forth. If two missionaries get a third to train together they have a child. cause we're cool like that. so we had exchanges with the bosses I went up to Montrose with Sister B (My Grandma) when we got back sister D tells me we're having a baby! yay so we get to co train a greeny. fast forward to the next day being Friday. we get a call from President saying that I would be transferred and sister D will get two companions. a greeny and another one. sooooo we spent much time rearranging the room to fit another bed and desk... sooooo I'm leaving Delta. will find out where tomorrow.

flash forward to Sunday. sister D is in pain and... we go to the ER, internal hemorrhoid... so we stayed home the rest of the day. lots of people came to give her blessings and brings us food. then another knock comes at the door. It's our investigator J. we're not supposed to have gators in our living space... but I didn't want to turn her away so we sat and talked and we set a date for her baptism. we're coming over tonight to invite her kids to baptism. Happy Face for Tiwi! so even when we're home sick we still manage to invite to baptism. :)

lots of love,

Kaylee Johnson
