Week 15

Holla at my peeps,

This week Elder Waddell from the quorum of the 70 came to visit us. He is so  great! and EXTREMELY TALL! The spirit was so strong. He shared some stories about Eternal Families and sealings and it was so powerful! One of them was about this family that was being sealed and the sealer stopped 3 different times to ask if all of the children were there. The last time he asked a different question. He asked if any of their children had past away. The mom explained that she had a baby thathad died two days after it was born and the sealer told her that he kept hearing the voice of a child saying "mom dont forget about me." Its incredible how thin the veil is when we are doing the work of God and helping people in the earth amd also in the spirit world to have the blessing of the gospel. I wish you all could have heard him speak because it was great!!
Also in church yesterday I think I heard the best talk of my life from a young boy. He was talking about modesty and how the things we wear can give off a good impression or a bad impression. He was talking about how if you see a big black guy running down the  street every one thinks hes a robber but maybe he just wanted to exercise. And how if you see a woman in clothes that show a little too much we think that she is in a type of bad work but maybe she just likes those clothes. hahaha the whole ward was just about falling off our chairs including the bishop hahaha it was the funniest/greatest talk ever.
I am doing good here though! We are still in the process of finding new people which can be a little frustrating but its just part of the work. My companion is great. My district is great. My zone is great. We are like a happy little family. I love the people here! I hope you are all doing good! I love you all!!

Week 14

Hello my little sugar muffins,

This week went by really fast and to be honestly I dont really remeber what happened before thursday haha soooo we will just start there. There was a young guy in our ward who had 23 years and got in a really bad car wreck. He was a faithful young returned missionary and was the secretary of our stake. He past away thursday night and all of the missionaries in our ward went to his viewing friday. A lot of his family is catholic but his mom and little brother are members. It was really sad to see how much hard it was for the people that arent memebers to cope with everything. This gospel really is such a blessing and a comfort in all types of situations. PLEASE pray for his sweet family and especially his cute little mom.
We also had divisions this week and I had the cuttest little Hermana LĂ­der as my companion for a day. Her name is Hermana Coronado and shes from Colombia. We had tons of fun haha but she doent know any English so she was whipping me into shape with my language. She really is great and so fun! The pic is awful of us but thats the only one I have haha Mission selfies are becoming a thing because thats the only way we can ever get clear pictures haha
I love you all bunches my sweet ooey gooey little gumdrops!

Week 13

Hey Everyone!

Well my first week with Hermana Terranova was great! She has so many little tricks and visual aides for teaching! Its great because they understand so much better. As missionaries we are suppose to invite investigatorsto kneel and say prayers which is alwasy a little awkward but it is seriously so great every time we do! With one of our investigators this week we had her kneel with us to pray about Joseph Smith becasue she hadnt recieved and answer yet.After we finished the prayer she was just smiling and looked at both of us and asked us how we felt. She explained to us how great and peaceful she felt in that moment and we had the opportunity to bear our testimonies of the Holy Ghost and how we canknow the truth of ALL things through him. I seriously love being here!! My sector, my companion, my district, my zone, these people, this gospel, and everything here is absolutely perfect!!! Its so great!!!

here are some pics of Hermana Terranova and I. She is so fun!

I love you all tons!!!! take care!!!
