That means you guys!!!


Mi Familia!!!

So this week was great!!! We had a training meeting with the presidente where we learned how to do practices with the members so that they can help us find new people to teach and it was great! The members are a really important part of this work!!! That means you guys!!!
We were going to go with a member family and the dad is a counselor to the bishop and at first I was kind of scared to do a practice with him because I didn´t think he would take it seriously but we did it with himand his wife and they did an awesome job and after they were all motivated to go and share the gospelwith their friend!!... Are you guys doing your practices??? haha.... but seriously... do it!
We also found a antiguo investigador that is golden! The misionaries were teaching him before andfor some reason they stopped but we have foundhim again andhe came to church yesterdayandis super excited to be learning about the gospel!! Whoo hooo!!
"¿Habeis preguntado al SeƱor?" That is what Nefi says to his brothers when they don{t want to accept what their father says. If we have a question or a doubt we need to ask God, He will give us the truth!! We should always be willing to ask Him in all circumstances in all questions and allneeds, He is the only one that can lead us safely back to Him!!! and to everlasting joy too!!

My family, I just love you all so much andI hope you havea great week!!!

Christ is the Perfect Example


Mi familia!

So this week was a little tough but we are looking at a new clean slate in this next week so that is great! So great how the Lord gives us time to prepare ourselves in this life, right??!! Pero hay que aprovechar el tiempo que tenemos!!! It was a great week nonetheless.
So this week I was studying and I realized how really everything that we do in the Church is in the name of Jesus Christ, He is our intersesor with the Father, we cannot return to our Heavenly Father but through Jesus Christ! And so it is very important that all we can do can be in "His name" by following His example in all things. How lucky we are to have a perfect example.
I hope you all had a super great week!!!

I love you!!!

WEll, i DON'T have a lot to say this week.


Mi familia!!

So this week was great. We are working hard to find Escojidos!! I cannot believe it is February already... so so fast. Some good things happened this week but I am not remembering right now. Oh, one good thing is that our Recent Convert said that he will prepare to go on a mission!! So great!!! Thats the best, seeing people progress in the gospel!! Today I was reading in 1 nefi 10 and it talks about how nefi was wanting to know if the words of his dad were true and how he searched for the spirit to know if it was true because that is the way that God has communicated the truth with His children from the beginning of the world!!! That is what we need to search for everyday, to have the spirit with us!! WEll, i DON{T have a lot to say this week but just that the time is flying by!! My companion is still awesome and we are having a good time!! WE had zone meeting this week and we learned how to make goals better! We saw a new type of pet, a Tejon, i don{t know what it is in english... 

I love you all so so much!!

Nice Surprise!


Mi Familia!
So I had a nice surprise yesterday at church. Of all the people in the world I come to meet David and Regina Adams, Sister Fatheringham and Sister Honeycut. I pretty sure mom and dad know them!!! Dad was one of their home teachers. I never would have thought that one of the tourists here would be from Alpine. haha. It was good to see them. Sister Fatheringham helped us with the piano! She is great!
So this week was great with my new companion. We are learning a lot and finding more people to teach! Yesterday we were trying to find new people to teach, but not only people that would hear our message but that would act accordingly. I said more prayers with my companion yesterday than ever. But it was interesting though because we didn{t just say prayers to start working but my companion insisted on saying prayers many of the times after we talked to people that were "chosen ones". It was a sweet experience to learn and to put into practice gratitude with my companion. She is super! I really found that as we did that our day was lighter and happier. Thanks Sister Ontiveros!! She is great, we talk a lot in english and that is kind of fun!  It is so fun to be training again, I feel like you learn so much more when you have the oportunity to teach so that is great! We should be getting a new bishop this next week.
This week in my studies I was reading about how nefi followed the spirit to get the plates. I love how it clearly shows how the only way to really have success is not to guess or to rely on money or worldly things but on the spirit! I am  trying to recognize the spirit more in my own life and becoming a master at the language of the spirit. I hope you are all doing really well!! 

I love you all so much!!

Good-Looking Shoes


Mi Familia!

Esta Semana fue muy bella!!! And I am alive do not even worry!! I am still in my same area but I had to travel to Guadalajara once again, those 10 hour bus rides are always so much fun. The Lord has given me the priveledge to train a new missionary once again and I am so excited for the opportunity to do that. My new companion is from Mexico and her name is Hermana Ontiveros and she is 19 years old. She practically is fluent in english and she has a really sweet spirit! I am so emocionada to work with her!

We also had a baptism this week!! This investigator that we have been working with has always been really quiet in the lessons and doesn´t say much but this week before his baptism he told us some great stories of how his prayers were answered when we were teaching him. He found a job.... and not only one job but  varios! He also told us how his shoes were old and he did not want to be baptized with these ugly shoes but he told us how the Lord helped him to buy some new good-looking shoes so he could be ready for his baptism with some nice looking shoes! So great!
It really has just been a week of blessings and of joy! I know that this is the work of the Lord and I am so grateful to be a part of it. I really do not think I could say it enough!!
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your january!! 

I love you all to the sun and further!!
