This Isn't Me!

Well I'm dying to know.... Brooke what is your baby girl's name going to be??!?! I just want to know so bad!!! I saw pics of your performance. LOVE IT! You are so stinkin gorgeous! I'm so grateful for my sibs!

Okay. and. holy. smokes. THAT HUGE BAG OF POWDERS IS THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD!!!! I can't even THANK YOU ENOUGH! I loooooove the dates and almond butter, and all oils are SO cool (slowly and slowly I'm converting my comp to loving natural foods and oils. just wait. one day she was sick with a headache so i gave her ice water with the lemon oil (like Ashley had with apples in it!) and she was all better! Doterra is true. Our Bishop even says so.) but anyway, i'm just so grateful for you Mom! Thank you so much!!!!! I love being healthy and having my awesome smoothies! you velly good.

Also, at church on sunday, deaf Sister Chan and deaf Sister Lee and Brother Lee came up and talked to me forever about YOU Dad! So weird. they showed me pics and explained their journey with you. haha it's insane they were randomly cleaning the church on a monday and you were there at the same time! amazing.

Well... training is definitely an adventure alright!! haha wow. I'm so grateful to know that this is revelation and that the Lord trusts me to do this! Sister Richardson is definitely very patient with me :) Everything is great though, we are working hard, and I make her do a lot of sihfaahns (role playing! thats the word.), so her teaching skills are improving!

I think the hardest part though for sure is communicating. haha man, especially with Marlo since her mandarin accent is so thick... half of our lessons with investigators are me asking, "can you repeat that please?" or "what does that mean exactly?" or just pretending like I understand and really just praying that it wasn't that important.. i've had many moments where i feel like my brain is about to explode from confusion of trying to understand someone's problem. But, no matter what, I am always able to vaguely understand in the end. And I definitely know that this is the Lord helping me! I'm perfectly aware that I can't understand, but somehow, we are still able to help our investigators and help them feel the spirit. I love it. It definitely shows that this has nothing to do with me--it is all the Lord. The Spirit is the most precious gift we could ever have! At times, I have been so humbled these past couple weeks. Mainly because I know how weak and unlearned I truly am, but how much the Lord trusts me. I am so grateful for His trust and guidance, that I do all I can to not let Him down. I know this is His work, not mine and Sister Richardson's! We are just here to help :)

There has been soooo much drama with Marlo lately! gah! Her faith is strong, she's reading the Book of Mormon, loves the gospel, but her husband is SO against it all. this tuesday we will be teaching her again and she will also have an interview with the Bishop. keep her in your prayers! I've never met anyone so humble in my life! she's so special! i'm so so SO grateful and humbled by this opportunity to help her know of the truth and happiness through the gospel of Jesus Christ :) love it.

Eating out on p day!! we love to go all out at super normal american places in Kowloon :) SO YUM.
I can't remember what pics I've sent, but here's Ruby! miracle stories with her....but no time, sorry! :) haha love you all so so much!

Love always, Sister Bosler

  1. Valerie,
    Can’t you just feel Karli growing through this experience learning the language? What a blessingJ
    Great way to start my day with a letter from Karli.
    Oh, and what a perfectly supportive mother sending her all those goodies.
    She just shines, inside and out!

    I think it's so amazing how passionate she is about the gospel and health food and natural oils - they all seem to go hand-in-hand for her. We ate healthy at home, we read the scriptures, etc., but Karli seems to take everything a few notches higher. I've heard that every generation gets better, and that is definitely true in Karli's case.
    She really wanted her dad to bring her our old juicer, but it was so heavy that it kept putting his bag over the limit, and he could not take an additional bag without paying a lot of extra money - up $100 – with every layover. Lol So no juicer for Karli, but we told her it is waiting for her when she gets home!
    It was very strange for Bruce to be right in Hong Kong, at her church, and then eating dinner with her bishop and his wife, and to not be able to see her. But a year will go by very fast and we are relishing the letters that she sends us and the light that we can feel clear over from Hong Kong.
    Thanks for your support and love,
    Kim (Valerie)
    Yes, Bruce being all the way across the globe and so close, yet so far away from Karli. What a treat to have dinner with her Bishop.

    She is sooooo amazing!!! Christy Kirkland

    Kim , Thanks so much for forwarding Karli's mission letters , I don't think they have better missionaries in the field than her. isn't she just great. I hope she ends up with a guy that can be a mission president or something , the world needs more people like her!!!! Trev
    It's such a FUN age to be! Kim
    Ya Wouldn't it be fun to be that young , pretty , healthy , happy, positive , pain free, innocent and naïve again? where God answers your prayers usually today or tomorrow but sometimes its in two weeks so you can learn the true lesson. "I know right?"
    She is the future of the church and her kids will all be excellent, hopefully she will marry someone and live the" Ideal" and avoid as much Hell that there is in this life as possible. Karli makes me happy , I love you Kim Tons!!
    PS Really our family could have easily had a reality show, all the talented ones could have made albums and the ones not musically gifted could lip sink no mic etc lol
    Brandon Nicole , and Mindi would have been the heart throb of America, can you believe how cute they were when they were little, even now I think back how perfectly darling and lovable they were.!
    Jackson Five wouldn't have had anything on Woolf 11 Happy Mormon kids;)
