Hi Sister Missionary!
Heartfelt congratulations on your mission call!
You are in for an amazing adventure!
Here at The Yellow Mailbox, we have a special spot in our hearts for you.
We are sisters (as in siblings) who have served as sister missionaries or supported missionaries as sisters, friends, moms, and aunts. We served in the early and mid-1990s.
Looking back, we each have so many joyful memories of our time as missionaries! However, some weeks in the mission field were very difficult.
A wise companion gave me (Maria) a beautiful pocket journal. She said, "Jot down only the wonderful, funny, joyful, awesome! things that happen in the course of the day--Just the one-liner prompts that recall the story." I didn't realize it at the time, but doing so helped me to focus on the positive when times got tough.
On difficult days, opening the pocket journal immediately lifted my spirits and restored my eternal perspective. It became one of my most precious keepsakes.
Here is a small pocket journal for you to do the same--a place to record the experiences the Lord provides just for you. (see all 4 designs here.)
Inside your pocket journal, you will find uplifting sister-missionary-focused scriptures and quotes from Church leaders to inspire you and remind you of the nobility of this Work in which you are enlisted.
Missions are truly soul-stretching. Capture those wonderful, funny, joyful, awesome!, small and simple moments and remember them forever.
Much love to you Sister!
Maria AhMu and all of us at The Yellow Mailbox
