Young Women Personal Progress Gift

     About 2 months ago, our daughter in law, Kammie( she is the young womens president), ask us if there was something her young women could do for service for the young women in Pohnpei. So we ask around the 8 branches here and found out that we have not been able to get any Young Women Personal Progress books on our island. So we let Kammie know and her and her young women, not only got us about 20 personal progress books, but they also got and decorated journals and wrote letters to the young women here.
     Well, the Personal Progress books arrived this week, and we were able to give them to one of the branches, I wish you could have seen the look on the faces and the tears in the eyes of these young women leaders, who had fasted and prayed for a way to get books for the girls they love so much.  I can't wait to give them the journals and letters when they come.
     We are going to see if there is some way we can get enough Personal Progress books for all the young women on Pohnpei.  Sometimes, we take for granted that everyone in the church has the same resources that we do in the states. We have learned, they don't all have the same resources.

The Young Women of Kolonia with there new Journals and Personal Progress Books,  Thank You, Harvest Park 5th ward Young Women.
    To Kammie and her young women,   A Big THANK YOU. You will never know what a amazing gift you gave to the Young Women and their leaders in the Kolonia branch on Pohnpei.  I wish I had gotten a picture when we gave the books to Sis. Youngalou and Sis. Cimeron. Words do not adequately express there and our gratitude.  Thank You. when the journals get here, we will have the camera ready.
