Letter for you by JoJoesArt Letter for you by JoJoesArt
Hey! :)

This is :iconpixiecold: speaking, the sister of :iconsanguisgelidus: ! :)
Like you all probably know, my brother is currently serving a mission in Switzerland. (If you dont know about it, you can have a look here: ( [link] )
He has already been there for a month, so there are still 23 month to go, as the mission will be for 2 years! He wrote me something via letter, which he wants to share with you:


„Hey my awesome watcher and friends! :D

Woow, it has already been almost a month since i left home to serve on this mission! Leaving my beloved famaly, my friends and my secound home called: „Devianart“ was a though decision! The first days on my mission were hard! But the more i am staying here, the more i feel how this experience changes myself as a person and also changes the lives of other people! We get to meet so many awesome persons, who are strongly against God in general and against relidion and they dont really treat us much kindly! XD But the open-minded and awesome people we met highly overweight the tough experiences! This journey has just begun, but I already found amazing new friends and had so many experiences, that will have an effect on my whole life...
I hope everyone of you is doing fine!! I seriously love you so much and am so grateful, that you stregthened my belive in myself and my abilities! There is still a long way to go, but in 23 month I will be so happy to return with a lot of lifechanging experiences and treasured memories, that will also have affected my art style and the way i see things!
I am practicing my artistic abilities every day here and I will have a lot of sketches and concepts after my mission for realize! :D
Please dont forget me, deviantart is an important part of my life and, if you belive it or not, God loves everyone of you so much! :)

P.S. I am currently in Wetzicon, near Zürich! Maybe I will meet someone of you here!? :D

Stay awesome!!!
Your sanguis!!! <3 <3 <3

I discovered your work quite a while ago and I have to say you are fantastic....I mean out of this world.  It's amazing the things we can do when we connect with our Creator.  My daughter is an artist here and she is so passionate about her work.  Chiyocho is her name.  She is 16.  Check her out if you have the time.  You two are my fav. on here.  Your sister's work is amazing too!  Keep the faith and thank you for providing us with such beauty.

I never knew that you were LDS!! That is so awesome, I'm one as well ^^. And I absolutely love this artwork, it is beautiful and to me a good representation of the Savior's light love and how he should be the center of our lives. I couldn't remember if I commented or not but I wanted to so here I am! Enjoy your mission I know you're touching many lives there!

Such an awesome picture and letter! :heart: I have gone through a lot my senior year in high school. Not only was the typical high school drama, but I, myself, became homeless, which I won't go any further than that. But ever since I became a part of the family of Christ, even things like that are easy to deal with. As long as you have the faith, God will help you get through anything. :heart: :+favlove:

Bless you, Darling! It's hard when one loses their Faith. As a Jesus-loving Pagan I fully understand your need for a retreat from the World. There was a comment in the movie "Dogma" that says (and I'm paraphrasing) :

Faith is like a glass of water. When you're little it's easy to fill up but when you're older the cup is harder to fill, yet the cup still needs to be refilled.

My Mama died recently and my Dad says he doesn't understand me. He's *never* said that and my heart hurts very much. I've been relying on Jesus and my Trees to make it through the day.

I hope you find what and Who you're looking for. You have my more than Goodwill and I have your wonderful pictures. :heart::heart::heart:

That would explain things. The media and other people can be as hard on the Mormons as they are on us Pagans. If one isn't "mainstream" we're looked on as Pariahs.

Yeah, it definitely gets old very quickly when we are the ones keeping from the 'mainstream' crowd. Whatever though, what doesn't annoy the poop out of you, makes you more tolerant? Idk >3<

riverotter7 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I do try being tolerant..oh goody!..now my brain is singing something it hasn't done for a decade or so. How "Dead Ant" sung over and over to the Theme of the Pink Panther wormed its silly way back out of my skull leaves something to be said: I haven't played enough.

Not prayed but played while making a joyful noise unto the Divine. The World needs more playtime. I've spent 50 years being 9. I plan to remain that way. :) ::Huggles and cake::
