Easter was awesome! I gave a talk in sacrament meeting on the new video that came out called Because of Him. It is on lds.org.. It is probably the best video I have ever seen! so powerful yet so simple! We had 2 dinners and a dessert yesterday that we went to so as you can guess i was stuffed.... I love the members here in Visalia! They are all awesome! Im soo glad i am here! You know everyday that goes by the whole brazil thing becomes more of a fantasy.. Not to say i am totally done but it is hard to even think about it because of how long i have been here! Good news is i Love it here! The tri-companionship has been soo fun though. We have been having a blast but i am definitely excited to finally have a companion again. Thanks for all the emails I love you all sooooo much!!! Keep up the awesome work!!
Mom got this text message on Saturday...
Hi Sister Schoen!
We just had the privilege of taking your son and his companion to dinner. Elder Schoen was the first to have eaten completely the Burrito Gigantic. More pics coming.
Your son has been teaching a co-worker of mine, Sheila Dills.
Please keep her in your prayers for us too.
Your son has been one of the best missionary teachers that
my husband and I have experienced. Thank you!
Ever grateful, Elder n Sister Torgeson.
