Leaving for a Year and a Half

Well, I am signing off for a year and a half on Monday and I am not sure if I'll be back on here before then so, here is me saying good-bye. I am off to serve a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Utah Ogden Mission, Spanish speaking for a year and a half. I know my Redeemer lives and that this is His gospel. I cannot wait to serve my fellow brothers and sisters in Utah and help bring them closer to Christ.

My weekly emails will be posted to a different, private blog that my family will be taking care of. However, if you would like to send me a little note once in awhile, I would not be opposed. Here will be my address from July 9th (once I reach Ogden) until the end of my mission:
Sister Chelsey Fisher
4380 S Orchard Ave
South Ogden, UT 84403
Thanks for following with me on life's journey thus far. Keep smiling and moving forward. The Lord loves each of you so much. Just turn to Him when life gets you down. See ya in a year and a half world!

My Favorite Day

Well, it's official. I never thought I'd say this but, Monday is now my favorite day of the week. Why you ask? because of one simple thing: missionary emails. Recently, the email policy for missionaries changed and they can now email other people than just family. At first, I thought this would create no change for me because I like writing letters and, most of the people I keep in contact with are in the states so, what would be the point? Well, I forgot that I had several close guy friends who were outside the USA who sent me their email addresses. There were also a few friends in-state who asked for my email to forward their home emails to me. What a fun twist to my Monday. I wake up to a couple emails from those out of the country and then, as the day progresses, I get a couple more from all over the world. It's such a miracle to be able to keep in contact with close friends who are out serving the Lord for a year and a half to two years. And, hopefully, this will allow me to be able to keep better contact with them when I head out to serve a mission in.... (DUN DUN DUNNNN) 22 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!! I am so nervous but, extremely excited to serve the people of Ogden and to learn how to talk about one of my favorite things in Spanish (church). I know my Redeemer lives and that this is His will for me and I cannot wait to give my all for Him.
