Hola mi familia ... I made it to Perú!!
Dad, you will be so proud.  They surprisingly put me into the advanced class and they said that I might only be here 4 weeks.  Isn't that crazy?  Anyways, I love you all.  Just had a short second to tell you all that I'm here.  My P-day is either Monday or Tuesday.  Not 100% sure yet.  But I'll find out soon.  I miss you all like crazy but, I am so happy that I am here.  Also, Mom THANK YOU!!  I found the Goldfish this morning as I was getting ready and just about cried.  YOU'RE THE BEST MOM EVER!!!!  Love you guys!!!

Con amor,
Herm'ANNA' Karratti

Watch Out World... Here Come 2 Amazing SISTERS

My first stop on my way to Perú was the Salt Lake City Airport.
I ran into my lifelong friend, Sister Mikell Smith,
Mikell just left the Provo MTC, heading for her mission to Taiwan.
Still a bit sad from saying good-bye to my "familia" ... I really needed this!!!

My Last Good-Bye's (sniff-sniff)


My bags are packed... (check)
My passport in hand... (check)
HERE I GO!!!  
Off to begin my new journey... 
"PREACHIN' IN PERU"

Thank you to everyone who has
helped me along my journey to
this point in my life.  You will be
in my thoughts and prayers.
HUGS!!!


My last good-bye's to family & friends at the airport.
I will miss you all!!

Mission Farewell

As I've been preparing for my mission, I've been keeping a check list. Just a mental one, so that I can keep myself sane. The last two things on that check list was FAREWELL, then MISSION TIME.

Well, now that the FAREWELL part is done, I only have one last thing on the list. And that part is really weird to me. This time next week I'll be in Peru on my mission. It's scary but really exciting. I can't wait to start this journey! 

I want to thank everyone who came to my farewell, they truly made it very special! It was a lot of fun to have all my family and friends here with me to share that day with me. For those of you who couldn't make it, I have attached my talk and I hope you enjoy it. I love you all! 

6 days!!

Wouldn't be here without all of them!

One of my favorite families! I love these guys!

One of my little boyfriends from Special Needs Mutual
Greatest family a girl could ask for!

Lucky to have such amazing brothers!

I Love To See the Temple

Today was the most amazing day of my entire life! I never want this feeling to go away, I feel like I'm on top of the entire world.

"I love to see the temple, I went inside today.
I covenanted with my Father, I promised to obey.
For the temple is a house of God, a place of love and beauty.
I prepared myself while I was young, this is my sacred duty."

The temple is such a special and sacred place. And the feeling that you have when you go through is even more special. I was smiling from ear to ear the entire time I was in there. I love this gospel with all my heart, might, mind and strength. Thank you for all of you who have made me the girl I am today. Because without you, I wouldn't be who I am today. And I am forever grateful!

One of the most touching times in there was when my 3 older brothers walked in while there were dressed in white. I started to cry because it was such an amazing sight seeing 3 of my heroes standing there in all white and knowing that they were there with me. It's a moment I will never forget. I can't wait to go back!

13 days!!
Greatest parents a girl could have!

Don't know where I would be without my brothers!
They're my heroes!
Love these two!



Never a dull moment with them!

My favorite boys in the world!



So blessed to have all of them!

They truly made today special!

Cup Song - Sister Missionary Edition

So I have about 20 more days! My time is almost here and I can't believe how fast it's coming. I found this song a few months ago, and I decided to do my own rendition of the song. So this is the famous "Cup Song" but with a Sister Missionary twist. Hope you like it!
