What it means to be a friend?

Liebe Familie,

I'm not feel super red hot today so this is going to be a short one. Sister Powell and I had the opportunity to teach at a Jugendwochende (a stake activity for all the young men and young women). They had loads of different workshops that people could sign up for! We taught our's about communication. It was so great to see the young men and young women getting so excited about stepping out of the box when it comes to friendshipping.  We highlighted the importance of really LISTENING when someone is talking to us (that means put your phones away!) and loving our enemies.  One girl made the comment about being friends with MOFs. (Menschen ohne freunde.. literally people without friends) While at first, it shocked me, I realized that every language and culture has people they treat just like that. Who people say literally aren't WORTH being someone else's friend.  

Basically, I'm just going to be studying alot this week about friendship and what it means to be a friend.  I know I always want to be the kind of friend someone else would like to have :)  

Love you all!

Sister Harman's mom here:  When Sister Harman says she doesn't feel good that means she is quite sick.  I pried it out of her that she has been running a fever, chills, sore throat etc for 3 days!  Luckily, members take care of the missionaries!  Yesterday, the Bishop and Ward Mission Leader sent her home from church to go to bed.  Thank you Bishop and Bruder Stein!  She is tough as nails but didn't feel good enough to finish her email to me, so her sweet companion Sister Powell did. 

This is Sister Powell typing now...Sister Harman is curled up on the floor. I'm going to take her home and make her go to bed. Thanks for having such an awesome hardworking daughter. 
She says to give the family a hug from her, and that she'll do her best to get better soon!

What a wonderful companion Sister Powell is! Thank you Sister Powell and we love you too!

  1. She is blessed to be surrounded by great people and to have a compassionate/supportive companion. Those youth in the stake are blessed to have these sisters tell them to put their phones away and LISTEN. I will pray that she gets feeling better.
