Mikayla & Ashley 
Sister Pillar & Sister Payne

Mikayla and Ashley have been friends since Mik's family moved to NC.  They went to high school together, played varsity lacrosse together, vacationed at the Outer Banks together, attended seminary together and served in the MTC together.  Ashley reported to the MTC the first week of April and will service her mission in Japan.  Mik said it was so fun to run into Ashley and hear her speaking Japanese. 

Packages are the best!

While at the MTC Ashley's mom sent Mik a package of Swedish Fish with a caption that read, "It's O-Fishal, you're the best missionary around!"  Mikayla also received a package of Krispy Kreme donuts from her friend Karston Eliason' mom.  Mik's mom sent cinnamon rolls, brownies and salsa & chips.  There is plenty of food served at the MTC, but as Mik said, "packages are the best!"  Mikayla was so grateful to receive the treats and share them with her district because as she mentioned in her email, her district members are originally from Central & South America and it is very expensive for their parents to send packages.  

Sister Mumford & Sister Pillar
Sarah is a member of Mik's home stake and they became friends at high school and while playing lacrosse together.  Before Mik received her mission call she had a dream that she was called to serve in Indiana.  Apparently the dream was intended for Sarah.  Sarah entered the MTC a week after Mikayla and has been called to serve in Indiana. Two other friends of Mikayla's entered MTCs the same day as Sarah.  Karston Elison who will be serving in the Salt Lake West Mission - Spanish speaking and Zack Winsor who reported to the MTC in Brazil and will serve in Brazil.

Mikayla & Elder Darger

Elder Darger's sister, Hailey, has been one of Mik's best friends since freshman year at BYU.
