This will be my last update on the documentary I’m making about my sister’s life as a missionary. Last week she went to her reassigned mission and got some extra footage of her at the airport before she left. I will add that to the end of the documentary.



Final Update of Documentary

Summary – Liz Gonzalez had a desire to serve a mission, she though things would go smooth in her way to achieve this goal since she was doing the right thing. Adversity after adversity happened even before her mission started, today she is back home (still as a missionary) waiting for her mission 4th reassignment. During the documentary we’ll witness Sister Gonzalez missionary “new normal”, how she’s had to readjust and keep being a faithful missionary while having no companion, mission, or immediate leaders to watch for her, and the emotional impact on having such an unpredictable mission.

Lessons Learned So Far
