This Blog was started while I was serving a mission for the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois and Spokane, Washington from March 18, 2009-September 22, 2010. My mom posted my weekly emails to my family on this blog. For a bit I used it to throw out some thoughts, but then decided to keep it as Sister Bailey's Blog and start a new one,

I am in Nauvoo. We arrived yesterday just before sunset. We don't have our assignments yet. We don't have our companions yet. So really there's nothing much to write. It was fantastic to see all the Senior Missionaries. The Fosters extended their mission! There are so many old faces and so many new ones. It's hot out and the trees are blooming way earlier than last year. Hay-fever is setting in quick!!! When we came into the Visitor's Center this morning and saw all the Senior couple Missionaries it felt so celestial. It was like we had all died and were reuniting. The spirit is so strong here. My temporary companion is Sister Wendel.
