Wow what a long week and a half!! Haha so we waited all this time with much anticipation to be able to go to the Temple then late last night we received a phone call from our district leader telling us that the temple president was closing the Temple because of a hurricane that was coming today!! But in the coming weeks we will be able to go! :)) Yay! 

This week was full of adventure and finding new people and working hard and sweating.. but whats new? Ha ha this week we did intercambios with the ccm twice.. and I left with a cute hermana Holton.. turns out she is from the same stake as my old stake (stake of my dad) and she went to Brighten high school and we know all the same people. (I will attatch  photo.. we think that our parents know each other!) What a small world! She heads to the Puerto Rico mission in a week! And she went to BYUH too! Ha ha just found my little twin out here! :)) I love doing intercambios and learning so much from the fresh new missionaries who have so much faith and excitement to work and talk to all these amazing people about the most amazing message! :) 

We found some really good new families this week!! Three to be exact and they live really close to each other. We have been trying really hard to work with them and they are progressing really well! They are really excited about the Book of Mormon and coming to church! And we are going to have a noche de hogar with our mission President coming up! :)) 

I love this work and I love being a missionary! I love all of you guys and I'm grateful for your support! :)) 

Be praying and preparing for conference this weekend to receive the guidance we need for the next 6 months! I LOVE CONFERENCE! 

I will write again on Monday!!

Another amazing week in the service of our Lord!

This week a dear family that was baptized a little over a year ago went through the temple to receive their endowments and be sealed. They are a family of a mom, dad, and two daughters(22&20 years old) The two daughters were inactive when I got here and one of them made the decision to come back to church after lots of prayer and family home evenings with them. But the other daughter would not budge when it came to coming to church. She was scared, and I felt like we had tried everything, my companion and I decided that we were just going to be patient and start with reading the Book of Mormon. we have been reading it little by little with her dissecting each part, and leaving her assignments to read.  She hadn't completed with any of them, then finally this last week when we came she told us that she had read what we told her too! Yesterday when we were greeting everyone at the door there walks up with her lovely family Vanessa! :)) How great was my joy! I asked her mom what changed her mind.. she looked at me with tears in her eyes and said..i don't know I just walked by her room this morning and she was there reading her scriptures, then asked me to kneel down with her to pray! :)

There are a few things we can learn from this story..
one: The Lords timing is everything, we can do all in our power but the results will come in His timing
two: The power of the Book of Mormon, sometimes we cannot even comprehend… IT IS POWERFUL!
three: When we are faithful and true, like these two loving parents, the Lord will never let us down, NEVER!

I love being a missionary and being able to see these amazing tender mercies of the Lord everyday and feel His love for ALL of His children! If you are not reading the Book of Mormon right now…run and go pick one up and read it!! READ IT!! and pray about it! and don't go one more day of your life without reading in it!!! and I promise that your burdens will become light, and you will feel our Saviors presence more in your life!

tengan una semana buenísima!! les amo muchísimo!
hasta la próxima

Hey familia! :))

I love you all so very very much!

This week I had the amazing privilege to see another one of Gods truly converted children enter into the waters of baptism! 54 year old Miguel who I have seen be completely humbled and lifted up by our Savior Jesus Christ. His baptism was sweet and simple..with his strong and simple testimony of how this gospel brings us peace and hope! He invited his WHOLE family..his mom sisters nephews, son.. everyone!!  None of them are members and they were all there to support show him their love as a family! This really stuck out to me as I was sitting there. We teach and talk about how important the family is all day everyday and it made me really happy to know that I have a family like that, who supports me in all that I do who loves me no matter what, and that they are eternal!!! I love them and I am beyond grateful for them! :)

I also received word that Alexander and Agustin, people I was teaching in my first area were baptized!!! When a hermana told me in a conference I just started crying tears of joy.. and more when I saw their pictures! How lovely is this work.. and we are ALL apart of it! :))

I love this work I love this gospel and I love my Savior Jesus Christ! I love you all!!
