Sister Kremer has arrived in Pocatello- 25 February 2015

We received this email from Sister Kremer's mission president today:

Dear Brother and Sister Kremer,

Your missionary has arrived safely in the Idaho Pocatello Mission. Upon arrival, we had an orientation meeting and personal interviews to get further acquainted. Sister Brinkerhoff and I are pleased to have the opportunity to serve with your missionary and are dedicated to helping our missionaries fulfill successful, honorable missions.

Here is the photo of Sister Kremer with President and Sister Brinkerhoff after her arrival  in the Idaho Pocatello Mission. 

We are hopeful you will write or email letters of encouragement to your missionary weekly so she will continue to feel your love and support as she loses herself in the work. 

Please send all mail to:
Mission Office  
Sister Erika Ann Kremer  
135 South 7th Avenue  
Pocatello, Idaho 83201.   
May God bless you as you sacrifice to support this great work.  

Faithfully yours, 
Marvin T. Brinkerhoff  
Mission President

Leaving for the Missionary Training Center - 11 February 2015

This photo was taken at the Nashville Airport just after we hugged and I realized that sending a missionary out for the second time isn't any easier than the first time. It was interesting though because this time there was another missionary leaving at the same time. There were also several missionaries returning home at the same time.  She was so ready and excited to go. 

Missionary Training Center News 18 February

This last week has been great. I swear I live three days in one day. Each meal is the beginning of a new day. There are 6 hrs of class- And hour of personal study, an hour of companion study, anywhere from 30mins-1.5 hrs of additional study, gym time, eating,TRC investigator (teaching an "investigator" who is most likely a member), TRC member (teaching a member about the gospel and committing them to various things), and so much more! If it weren't for the 15 mins of quiet time between 10:15 and lights out I would never have time to write in my journal!

We went to the temple today. It was an amazing experience.

I've learned so much and had so many prayers answered this week. And with each answer I recieve a new questions pops up so all the time they have allotted for prayer here is being used- and then some. I think the only night I went to bed at the correct time was the first night because every day since I've had so much to pray about. My list of thanks and questions have never been so long in my life. And when I pray for all the missionaries I know by name it takes a fair amount of time. Even when I'm only praying for the 8 in my district. 

I love you so much! I'm taking pictures but don't have time to figure them out right now as my computer time is almost up.

I pray for y'all daily.

I love you so much!

Sister Kremer

       I know that Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us and cares about what is happening to us. His love is what I want to focus on while I meet new people and get to know them. I hope to be able to convey just how much each person I meet is loved.
     I am so grateful to be going down this path. Two years ago I'd have never thought I would be here, but I'm so glad that I am.
     I don't have much to say this week, but I'm sure I'll have lots to say next week.

      I look forward to sharing my mission with all who read this and hope that it is able to brighten your day!

       You are loved,

Sister Kremer
