LETTER FROM SISTER ALLIE STEVENS. BRI´S MISSIONARY COMPANION - APRIL 16, 2013
Well this is Sister Stevens... And I just wanted to write you a quick letter to ask you all a question that's been really troubling my mind. I've been trying to find the answer for the last 11 weeks but I can't quite figure it out. Okay.. Here it is: "Why is your daughter SO AWESOME?
I really think that her awesomeness must come from growing up in such an amazing family. She really is amazing. She lights up San Vicente! I love being her companion. She has so much life and energy it makes it impossible to not love every second of my life here in Los Angeles. The people here are drawn to her. You should see the way Juan (our recent convert) reacted to her moving to the area. He changed so much and I know it is because the Lord sent her here to reach out to him! Every time we call he always says "where's Sis. Lago?" Well in Spanish! but he loves her. All our people love her. I love her. I was so glad I got to briefly meet part of your family here at the Visitor's Center. She loves you. I love how she talks about the her family. She has so many wonderful stories with you! I will always ask her to tell me something about you and she can go on for hours. Her face lights up and she always laughs and is happy when talking about you. I am so excited to get to meet the rest of you. I want to tell McKay good luck on his mission!! It's amazing, life changing! The Lord is preparing so many people in France for him. Start praying for them now! I am so excited that McKay will get this experience. I love being a missionary! Oh yeah! Kristi Happy Birthday!! Justine you are soo beautiful! and blessed to get to be part of the Lago family! I am sure you are learning as much from them as I am from Brianna. It's awesome. Mom and dad Lago: You are incredible parents! Bri adores you. Thanks for al you do. You are an example to me even thought I've never met you!
Bri has helped me in so many ways! She's helped me to relax, to me more positive and more open. She's helping me achieve the person I want to be, but also who the Lord wants me to be.. She is awesome! You are awesome!! The Church is Awesome!!! and so true! I am glad you the Lord PURPOSEFULLY put your family in my path :)
