On Thanksgiving Day, 2008
I was thrilled to get a phone call from Sister Raymond
who is a member in Cape Cod. She had spoken to Hilary
earlier in the day and Hilary told her that if she happened
to talk to us to tell us that she loved us and
Sis. Raymond then e-mailed us before and after pictures
of the haircut Hilary gave to her last
companion, Sister Parkin.
Sister P. cuts her hair every other year to donate to
Locks of Love.
for the Thanksgiving gift Sisters Parkin and Raymond!
We hope that
all of the Lord's Missionaries
had a wonderful and blessed day wherever in the World
they are serving--even if that country doesn't celebrate
Sister Parkin is on the left
Good job Hils--you haven't lost your hair-cutting skills!

The road of opportunity to fulfill a
was not a smooth or easy one for
She survived many different hardships
and became stronger with each one. While
on her mission she rarely shares her struggles
with us at home, but when she does, she tries
to find and share the meaning and lessons
in the situation. She is an excellent student in
learning the lessons of life, and applying them.
Her time in the
Massachusetts Boston Mission
is almost 2/3 complete, and we know that
the realization of this is bittersweet for her. The
Worthen's are so proud of Hilary's strength
and committment and wish to honor her on
this special day.

22 years ago Hilary was born
on 11/11/86
(This picture was taken when she was one week old so
I could send it in for my 20th High School reunion --
I wanted ALL the kids in the picture)
Here's the re-enactment we did at her good-bye
We have analyzed and discussed the old picture over
and over again throughout the years--but one
thing never changes--and that is how happy we all
were and are to have Hilary in our family.
She has been such a joy to each of us, and
with her choice to serve a mission, she is
leading and inspiring her 18 (almost 20)
nieces and nephews who so dearly love
her. Since her birthday is coming up next
week, we would like to send her
22 Birthday Wishes
from the people who read her blog. So.........
please comment and I will send
the Birthday wishes
to her in her weekly e-mail
the day before her birthday.
thank you!!

Please pray for the continued success of Hilary

and all missionaries who are bringing

the hope of Jesus Christ to those

who need to hear it.
