We are Missionary Mamas. We both have sons serving in different missions in Chile, and we are in the process of helping two more sons prepare to serve. We are trying to navigate the ups and downs that come with this incredible opportunity. We love our missionaries, and have found that sharing this experience with others is what helps us to laugh, cry, cope, and find the strength to survive.
