Sister DiFrancesco

11 Feb

Well guys, since I haven’t posted in more than 5 weeks, I figured I ought to post something about the DiFrancesco family’s newest missionary.

We took Molly to the MTC on Jan. 28 accompanied with lots of hugs and tears. Well, lots of tears on the family’s part and few tears on Molly’s. She was really nervous about the MTC portion of the mission. (I think she was worried that she would hate it.) She couldn’t help but mock the other sisters we saw. Once we got into the welcome meeting though, I think she started to get excited.

She wrote us a letter that first night. Everyone she met was very friendly – “genuinely interested, not just nice because they have to be”. She has two companions. At first she really liked them, but her next letter informed us that the “honeymoon was over”. She and Sis. Tweede don’t really get along. Luckily, they have another Sister to help them work things out. I told her it’s just another great reason to play “what I like about you”. Kyle will be so happy.

They taught their first lesson to mock investigators 4 days after she got there. She said it was the hardest thing she’s ever done, but they got through it. She’s praying a lot and has realized that obedience is KEY. I have to say, I find that very ironic since she always swore she would be a rebelious rule breaking missionary. (Little rules of course, not the big ones.) It looks like she will now be toe-ing the line.

Funny story: On their way to a devotional an Elder asked them how well they sing. Molly’s comp replied that they didn’t sing “well,” but they were ok. He then proceeded to ask them not to sit by him because the last sisters he sat by sang so terribly that they totally ruined the spirit for him. Then he turned and walked away. HAHAHA. Probably the most hilarious thing I have ever heard.

Overall, Molly is loving the MTC and learning so much about the Gospel. She has never worked so hard in her life, but has also never felt so good. I’m so proud of what she’s doing and what a great missionary she will be.

    Hooray for a blog post! It sounds like she’s loving it. We need to write to her…I did once from Dear Elder, but overall we’ve been slackers. Hope life’s good. Let’s have a party soon – I’ve been wanting to tour the chocolate factory in Bountiful, are you game?

    I agree with the elder in the story. . . nothing is worse than sisters who can’t sing but think they are amazing.i also agree with landon and kylie. let’s tour the chocolate factory.

    I’m glad Molly is doing well and surviving the MTC. I hope you are surviving life back at school.
