More Than Words

My name is Ellen.
On the 5th December, 2013, I take leave from loved ones, from university and from my lifestyle as I know it to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Australia, Adelaide.
I will be gone for a period of 18 months.

If you'd like to write to me, you can snail mail me at:

SISTER ELLEN LOUISE MAGALLANES
PO Box 97
Marden SA 5070


Until I return, this blog will be on hiatus.
God be with you until we meet again. :)

n

n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
