Pandohp, a home away from home ------- By Sis. Roberts

The Miracle:  To paint a picture, here in Pohnpei, all your relatives live in very close proximity to each other. After opening a new area, we received a referral to contact a women names Margret Weller. She had been an "eternal" investigator for 6 - 7 years. She was dropped 7 months prior as she had the desire to be baptized, but her husband, that lives in Hawaii, had not allowed her to. On our 1st visit to her she was not there, but her sister was, so we Sarowei'd (had a lesson) with her sister. She heard that the Sisters had returned and was overjoyed. A miracle had happened, during our absence, the Lord had provided a way for her to be baptized.
  This amazing women would put anyone at awe. She practiacally raised her 10 children ( well 11, including me) by herself. She said to me " I have never felt so much peace in my life until now".
  Following her example, her 2 sons, Mikimik and Marsdon & 2 nephews, Jetruk and Jaylin, were baptized and can not wait to serve missions. The coolest kids!
   Also due to Margrets example to her family, her sister in law, Resina and niece, Mayleen were also baptized.
   At present, many other families are on baptismal dates and are preparing to make their Covenants.
Margret and many of her relatives have a goal to be sealed together in the Temple of the Lord & reaching out to other family that lives in  Hawaii.
   The saying is so true " Missionaries leave their families for 2 years, so that other families can stay together for eternity"
  There is no greater joy found, then in the work of the Lord.
I love being a missionary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
