First letter home 12-20-2010

Family and Friends,

Oh my goodness! So much to say. Today ends day two for me. Honestly I am doing so good. Amazing things keep happening. I have not only one, but two companions! How lucky am I!! I love them both, they are amazing! I will tell you more about them when I get to email on Thursday, because I don't have lots of time right now. So tonight at our brach meeting I was made senior companion! CRAZY!!! And out of all 3 of us I am the youngest! I feel good about it and I am excited! Oh my companions names are sister Howard, and sister Soelberg! So I have been able to read a lot of the letters and it has helped so much. Thank you everyone! I got a dear elder from Calee today and a letter from Brooke. Thank you so much. Thank you everyone!! I will write back as soon as possible but we are so busy!!! All the Elders were impressed with my basketball skills. It was pretty fun. I was sure trying to be humble....I'm terrible. lol So today I met the sweetest lady. She was working at the immunization check off place! I walked up to her to hand her my stuff, and she looked at me with tears in her eyes and said ," I have been waiting for you all morning!" So of course I assumed something was wrong but come to find out she was a convert to the church and the elder that converted her was named Elder Balmforth!!!! He is from Idaho and his name is Joel. How are we related? So anyways that made my day and she was so cute!! I got my picture taken with her. Its so amazing that all these things happen. I am truely loving it here. I love being able to share my testimony all day long. Sorry this is so short but I am out of time. I love you all Please post this on my blog and email it out to everyone! I love you all so much! Stay Strong!!!

p.s. Please call Tanya Albertson and tell her that I talked to Tyson and he looks and sounds so good! It was hard not to call him Tyson. I also saw Mike Rupp and from a distance Tindall. I saw austin and Jeff the first day. They looked good and a little lost.....but, I probably did to. Well I love you and I promise to write as best as I can. WE ARE BUSY!!! Love you. Oh I haven't seen matt yet.

Love Katee
Sister balmforth


  1. Yay!! I'm glad to hear she's loving it and doing so good. I knew she would. Even better that she's showing off her b-ball skills with the elders ... they need to be humbled every now and then. :-)

  2. Katee - You are amazing. We are so proud of you!
    Did you get the name of the lady who was converted by Joel Balmforth? He is Uncle Chad's son. I would love to let him know that you spoke with this woman.
