I talked to my mom this morning. She's in Ukraine right now, serving a mission in the eastern part (the more Russian part) called Dnepropetrovsk. I told her Happy Easter, and she told me that in Ukraine, they say it a little differently--instead of 'Happy Easter', one person will say "Christ is Resurrected" and the other person will respond "Truly, Resurrected." I love it that they really keep the meaning of the holiday so central. I'm so grateful for the Atonement of Christ and his willingness to take upon Himself our sins and our pains. "God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son!"

Christ is Resurrected, Truly, Resurrected
It's been such a great Easter. I got to go to my wonderful Aunt's house in South Jordan, and Stew even hid eggs for me around the house. It's amazing how much freedom we feel like we have between rounds sometimes. It's been so fun to be home, start a garden, cook, play piano again, etc. We're excited for an easier round this next time (hopefully), where they let us go home at the beginning for a whole five days! Andrew's ANC was 300 as of last Thursday, so I expect we'll either be in late this week or early next week. I'm betting on next week, though.
