Portland Mothers Day Edition

Screenshot during our Mother's Day FaceTime
Hey everyone so Portland is doing well this past week we got a few new investigators like Carla from Romania! pretty cool she speaks kinda soft and I'm just about deaf and can't ever hear her but oh well. 
This week is going to be crazy with "3 Day" going on in McAllen. So all the District and Zone Leaders are going down to McAllen. So I don't have too much time I just want to wish everyone a Happy Mothers Day(Feliz Dia de las Madres) and brag about having the best mom in the world so ya!😎

The spiritual thought of the week actually is one about our first Mother, Mother Eve. But for lack of time I would like to express my thanks to her for her transgression giving humanity to opportunity to gain a physical body you can read about it a little here https://www.ldsliving.com/5-Things-Every-Mormon-Should-Know-About-Mother-Eve/s/82043


hope y'all had an awesome Star Wars Day


Addition from Mom:
We received this video of Elder Harker celebrating 6 months out in the mission field.  It's a missionary tradition to burn a tie at 6month, a shirt at 1year, pants at 18months and a suit at the end.  Before anyone gets offended at the "waste" of clothes remember that these boys  young men wear their suits day in and day out and frequently they are worn through, especially at the knees. And wearing the same white shirts every day (I think we sent Jesh with 8 to start with) but still white doesn't stay white for long, especially in schweaty Texas.
Apparently Elder Packer was able to celebrate his 18 months at the same time.

One of the families that Elder Harker and Elder Packer have been working with posted the following pictures on Facebook.  I love that these boys thought of Rockie on Mother's Day.  Even more I love that they had a reason to.  I know the Birkey family has treated Elder Harker and Elder Packer very well and it means a lot, soo much to my mommy heart to know that he is being treated with so much love and kindness.
"No words can express my love and appreciation and gratitude to these angels of mine (ours). I am so proud of them and what they accomplish everyday. They will always be a part of our family and in our hearts forever. We love these Mormon Missionaries. Elder Packer and Elder Harker are amazing souls. Y'all rock!!
-Rockie ❤🙏🏼"
