Yup. It's true. IT SNOWED HERE!! It was the best day EVER I absolutely loved it!(I'll add some pics so y'all can see the pure joy I felt)This week all in all has just been so great. One miracle we had was on Sunday we had stake conference, and the members that were going to give a ride to an investigator we had invited cancelled at the last minute. The investigator (whom I love so so much) wanted to go so badly, that she called another member and found a ride! It was such a miracle that she had the faith and courage to call someone else and we were so excited she was able to come. She loved stake conference and felt the spirit and we are so excited to keep working with her! Yay!We also were able to go to the temple in Tuesday, and that was amazing. I know that the temple is the house of the Lord, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to feel of His love and spirit there.There were a lot of other miracles that happened throughout the week, and I am so grateful to be a missionary especially during this season! Last night we went Christmas caroling and people LOVED it. I'm so grateful for this season and for the opportunity to help people come closer to Christ each day as a missionary.I love you all lots! Have a great week!Hermana FrankPs if y'all wanna write me a cute Christmas letter or send me your cute Christmas cards I would not be upset one bit.1150 Cole Dr SWLilburn, GA 30047 USA

Well this week has been great! One of the highlights, was we had the opportunity to take part in the Book of Mormon experiment. We went to a college campus and asked people to just read one page and highlight anything they saw about God, Jesus Christ, or anything that they liked. It was so so amazing, one girl told me, "wow, I really like it! It makes me feel some sort of way!" I was able to testify that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and helps us learn more about Him and becoming closer to Him. I was able to teach another lady about the Restoration of the gospel when she said she had been feeling lost spiritually. It was such a great experience, and we talked to so many more people and got so many phone numbers so that we can give them free copies of the Book that changes lives!
We also had MLC and zone conference with Elder and Sister Clayton of the 70! It was so spiritually fulfilling and I learned so much! My companion and I were so hyped to work, and found so many potentials and solid news this week! We saw lots of miracles, and I know that the Lord is guiding us every day.
Tomorrow we have the opportunity to go to the temple for the first time in 7 months, and I cannot wait! I love going to the temple and feeling of the spirit that is there. It truly is the Lord's house.
I love you all so much, have a fantastic week!
Also, don't forget to Light the World this holiday season!!

Georgia is so pretty!
Hey everyone! Happy late thanksgiving! I hope that everyone was able to eat lots of turkey and think of all the many blessings God has given us!
This week, again, was so amazing. Nothing too out of the ordinary happened, but it was another week of serving others and helping people come closer to Jesus Christ. I love this work!
One thing I really have noticed this week is how much God loves all of His children. He truly places us in the paths of others and others in our paths to bless and help us along this journey. He has given me so many blessings, and I am so grateful for all of them. My family, friends, the opportunity to serve a mission, and many more.
Thanksgiving was fabulous, and so was black Friday, as we were able to go to the mall to talk to lots and lots of people. It was a blast.
I love this work and I love all of you!! Have a good week!

This week was super fantastic, and lots of fun. :)
First, we have been teaching a woman named Magaly, and she is so awesome. She comes to church every week, and loves the members and us so much. We are trying to help her now gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon, and she has been so sincere. This last lesson we had, she really opened up to us, and the spirit was so strong as we testified. She has so much faith, and I love her so much!
Another exciting thing this week, was Sunday night, it was so so cold and dark, and honestly, neither of us really wanted to be tracting. But the best way to get over that, is to just do it. So of course we went tracting :) We ended up finding 5 new investigators in under an hour, 2 little families. They are all really interested, and we are super excited to see how they progress!
Anyways, this week I have been thinking a lot about how blessed I am to have this opportunity and all of you and your support. Love you all! Have a good week!

Hello everyone!Sorry I don't have much time, but this week was one for the books! We saw a lot of miracles and a lot of progress this week.One cool thing that happened, was at church we had someone we had invited to church about 3 weeks ago show up! It was so cool! He has family that are members, and had been to the church before win Peru and decided to come visit us! It was such an amazing miracle that he decided to come!We also felt prompted on Sunday night to visit a former investigator. We went to her house, and her husband was outside! He let us right in, and so we taught them and got a return appointment!I know that God is directing His work and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be an instrument in His hands. I love you all, have a good week!Hermana Frank
Me and sister Mafi!
Some cute little girls put on our tags and took our bags because they wanted to be missionaries.We went to an escape room today haha.

Hermana FrankHello everyone!!This week was fantastic here in Riverside. My new companion is Sister Mafi. She is from California and is the greatest! She took Spanish in high school, so already knows a ton and is teaching me lots! I'm super excited to be companions with her and I know this transfer is going to be great.We had the opportunity to teach a man named Carlos this week, who has been searching for the truth for a long time. He was so excited to read the Book of Mormon and was so excited when we gave him his own copy. We can't wait for him and hope that he continues to progress!We also were able to teach a woman named Magalita this week and read in the Book of Mormon with her. She is coming to church, and really loves the hymns.I really have grown to love the people we meet and teach here in Georgia so much. I love my mission and I love all of you! Thanks for all your support. Have a good week!

|The zone, with a couple elders cropped in because they weren't there haha.|
This week was full of fun activities, loving this work (even in the freezing 30 degree weather), and a few surprising phone calls.
First, we had our trunk or treat with the Spanish branch and English ward! We had quite a few nonmembers there so we were super excited. It was a great turnout!
And yes, this week was so so cold. So many people told us to get inside while we were out knocking doors, but yet wouldn't let us into their house to get warm..🤔 haha but it was so fun, and we had a great time still while we were knocking doors and talking to people.
One cool thing this week was that we were going to visit an investigator but our team up fell through. And because of the rules, we could go inside his house. Since it was freezing, we ended up going home and doing a lesson over the phone. The spirit was so strong as he asked questions and we testifies, and he said he could feel the spirit. It was such a cool experience, and it goes to show that God loves all of His children and gives us technology to hasten this work. I'm so grateful for Him!
A crazy thing this week, was on Sunday we got to teach primary, the lesson for the adults about how to include visitors in church and use Facebook to hasten the work, and then my companion and I each spoke in sacrament meeting. The poor members heard from us literally all day haha. But it turned out really well, I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share my testimony and try to strengthen and help the members here.
As for the phone calls, I got the crazy news that I'm training again! I can't wait! And my companion got the call that she is going to the biggest area in the mission with an English sister! Lots of super exciting stuff going on here in the GANM. (Georgia atlanta north mission)
I love you all, thanks for you support!
|In the blue dress she is a member that always feeds us haha and the other one is |
an investigator named margarita.
