8/26/13:Facebook Message from a Family in Longmont, CO

{Editor's Note: I received this message on facebook on Monday, 8/26. It was so sweet of this family to look for us and let us know how Emily is doing!}

Hello Brother and Sister DeFord!

We just had your lovely daughter Sister DeFord over to our home in Longmont, Colorado tonight for "Fresh Greenie" salad (BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad), rolls, and cookie sandwich sundaes! We can't tell you how delightful it was to be the first to introduce her to our area! It was a wonderful visit, and we can sure tell what a great missionary she is going to be! She has a stellar companion, Sister Zvirzdin (don't ask us how to pronounce that, yet) who is very enthusiastic about the gospel! Both have had what they said was a tiresome day, and they are looking forward to resting tonight. But, that is a good thing when it comes to missions.

For your information, your daughter will be in the Longmont, Ute Creek Ward. We have been here 4 years, and love it! Many missionaries we have had in our home have written back that this was their favorite area! So, we know they will love it here. These fine sisters are the second set of sisters to join us (the first are Spanish speaking sisters) , and we are delighted now to have all 4 of them! This particular ward serves all the Spanish members for the Stake as well as all the English speaking members in the boundaries. We told them they will definitely notice a lot of translating in all the meetings, as the bishopric is really trying hard to help these members feel welcome.

Anyway, we thought we would hunt you down, if we could, and let you know she looks great and her spirits are up!
