Jane in Portugal: September 2022

 Jane (Sister Nielson) is doing SO GOOD!  
She loves serving the people of Portugal and has an excellent companion, 
(Sister Austin), who, among many other things, 
is helping her with the language and how to use public transportation.
Jane sends home the BEST photos!  
Including the amazing azulejo tiles that are so prevalent on 
homes, buildings, sidewalks, roads, and churches.  
Every day I miss her and remember funny things
we did together or said or laughed at.
Like that one time, we were going to Barre3 together and saw a very
an old gentleman with barely any clothes on in a wheelchair
zooming away from a nurse and a nearby nursing home.
We were rooting for him to make it to Burger King for lunch.
He was so close!
(I guess you had to be there.  It was so funny!)
Knowing she is happy and progressing is all I need
to see each day.
She has wonderful experiences that are enriching
her life and her testimony, but she'd be the first to tell you that she
isn't there for her; she's there to teach others about Jesus, 
and God's plan of happiness.
She's there to tell others the good news of the Gospel! 
She is serving the Lord, and we do hard things
