Thoughts from Elder Reschke's mom:
One year ago today, Elder Reschke was set apart as a full-time missionary.
I have been thinking a lot about him today.
And, missing him a lot today as well.
As I walked out to get my mail this afternoon, this is what I found,
a postcard from Peru:
I always teased that I was glad of e-mail because I
can't read this guy's handwriting:
Greetings from Lima Peru`.
Your lil' baby is all grown up and preaching
the Restored Gospel to the remainder of the
Lamanites all the way in South America.
I have learned and grown so much in my mission thus far,
and have had so many incredible experiences that have
changed my life. I'm so honored to be a worthy servant
of the Lord, and I won't stop sharing the Gospel until this
message has brushed every street and sounded in every ear.
Con Mucho Amor,
Elder Jacob Reschke"
I have only ever gotten one other letter via U.S. mail from Elder Reschke
in the past year. I am not sure if he sent it through the pouch or what.
How amazing that it arrived exactly on his one year mark.
I consider it a little "tender mercy" from Heavenly Father.
Honestly, this truly made my day. Gosh, it even made my year!
