August 19, 2013 - Elder Williams Birthday - 19 Today and already served 6 months!

Today is Elder Williams first birthday - EVER - away from the family. (Tough on the Mom for sure.) Here is a chain of emails. NONE FROM HIM. The missionaries in his mission use the public library computers on P-Day to write home. This day, the computers were out. What a day for this to happen. How blessed we are to have a lovely Sister in Texas, Monica Burns, caring for our missionary!

Hi Williams Family!
     My name is Monica Burns.  Your son is serving in our Ward here in Allen Tx.  I spoke with him and his companion Elder Smith just a few minutes ago for your sons birthday.  They told me the internet was down today at the library so I offered to send a note for them to their families to let y'all know.  The Mission President won't let them come to a members home to use  a computer.  They doubt they will be able to email later this week so you probably won't hear from them until next Monday but they don't know for sure.
      So your son told me to tell you that he loves his birthday pkg., he is doing well, and...Happy Anniversary! 
     If there is anything you would like me to convey just let me know and I will be happy to do so!  We love you're son and think he is a great missionary!

p.s.  We are doing our best to take care of the Elders here so don't worry!!   I have a homemade Dutch Apple Pie in the oven for him right now for his birthday.  He told me he didn't really care for cake.  :)   I ask all the missionaries when they get here what they are allergic to and when their birthday's are. We try to do a little something for them if their birthday is while they are in our Ward.   

 Love to your family,
 Sis. Monica Burns

WOW Monica!

I just jumped onto my computer to see if Elder Williams had written yet. I was so excited to see if he got his birthday package. This is his first birthday ever, away from our family.

How can I even express to you how grateful I am for your email?

How grateful I am that you are making him his MOST FAVORITE PIE!

How grateful I am that you take such good care of all of our missionary sons that are serving near you!!!!!!!!

The best I can do is to return the love by taking care of the missionaries here in Gilbert Arizona.

As a mother, I sit here with tears running down my face so humbled that you taken your time to assist and serve our son in all these ways.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!  Our family will sing your praises in our family prayer this evening.

Much love and appreciation,

Cindy Williams,

Oh Cindy,
It is our pleasure!!!   

When one of our daughters was on a mission that was my greatest hope  that she would be taken care of by her Ward families and it would help her not to be homesick.  I, like you, can only repay those who were so kind by taking care of these young men and women here in our area.  

We love the missionaries!!

We have 2 sets of sister missionaries in our area now.  They texted me this morning for a ride to the Stake Ctr. to play basketball with the Elders for P-day.  They had made chocolate chip cookies for Elder Williams birthday  today.  Hopefully he's had a good day!

I contacted the family where he is having dinner to let them know it's his birthday just in case they didn't know so maybe they can sing him Happy Birthday or something.

I hope the pie turns out.  It's been probably 5 years since I've made it.  Yikes!

Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you!!

Again, I thank you, Monica. How wonderful that you let the family where he will dine today know that it's his b-day. Sounds like he had a good one thanks to you!

Isn't the Gospel of Jesus Christ amazing. If you and your family ever get to Phoenix, you have a place to stay at our home.

Much appreciation and love,  Cindy
