Sorry, I've lost my creativity

Sorry everyone, I have given up trying to think of creative subject titles...

But this week was great! We had a lot of success finding new people to teach, and reaching our goals. One cool experience this week was when we were tracting in a trailer park and came across a family cooking and they offered us tacos! Haha I absolutely love the Hispanic culture and how willing they are to share! We are able to share a scripture with them, and they want us to come back! 

This week we also had success working with members to plan a wedding for our investigators! It will be in October and we are all so excited! The investigators are named Alejandro and Evelin, and they have three little boys. They are such a sweet family, and we cannot wait to help them to get baptized so one day they can be sealed together for eternity!

Not much happened this week besides the usual knocking doors, talking to literally everyone, and eating lots of really good food. I love being a missionary and I'm so grateful for all y'all and your support. 

Love you all! Have a great week!

Goin on month 8

Hello everyone!!

This week was fantastic! We had the opportunity to teach a family and they are now all new investigators! We talked about how we can grow closer together as a family through learning and applying the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that families are so important, and I am so grateful for my wonderful family and their examples to me. 

It has also been crazy this week because everyone has been preparing for the hurricane, and a lot of people have come up from Florida. All the water, flashlights, and most of the bread is gone. We are definitely praying lots for all the people that have been affected, and are grateful that people have been able to come here! 

This week we went to the park, and with chalk wrote the scripture Romans 8:28,
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God"
A lot of people really loved it, and were really grateful that we were sharing that message. Especially during these times, it is important to remember that God loves us so much, and if we love and have trust in Him, everything will work out.

I hope you all have  a great week! Thanks for all your emails, love, and support.

Labor Day

Hello everyone!!

I hope y'all had a fantastic labor day! We have our pday today because we spent yesterday working hard, and we actually had lots of success yesterday! In the morning we contacted in the park, and it was so fun talking to people and sharing our beliefs with families and planting seeds so they can understand that families are eternal!

This week we had the opportunity to go serve at this place called hi hope. It is a place where special needs adults go and we get to play games with them and spend time with them. It was so fun to feel of their sweet spirits, and a testimony to me that God loves us all so much!

We also had a great lesson with the Pazol family, who are on date to be baptized in October. We read in the Book of Mormon and talked about how we can not only read these cool stories, but we can apply it to our everyday lives! I have a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and I know it can change lives. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share it with everyone and help them realize what a blessing it can be in their lives as well.

Also we had exchanges with the sisters in Collins hill. I went to their area, and had a lot of fun being an English sister for a day! I am so blessed to work in such an amazing zone with such wonderful sisters, they are such great examples to me!

Thank you all so much for your emails, love, and support. Never forget how much God loves you! Have a fantastic week!

Hello everyone!!

This week was super great, we had zone conference, found new investigators, and to top it all off we got to sing and spend time with the kids in nursery. :)

At zone conference we talked about family history and how we can involve that in missionary work. It is super fun and really the work is all the same. I encourage everyone to just get on and learn more about who they are related to. It is so fun! 

We also were able to have a really cool lesson with a new investigator who really wants to change his life around. It is so amazing how the gospel can change lives and help us reach our potential God has in mind for us. I know that God loves us and He gives us this gospel so that we can learn and grow and become better. I love sharing that knowledge with people!

And yes, this week we were able to sing with the kids in nursery because there were not enough sisters to help. It was so fun and made me miss all my little cousins! 

I hope you all have a great week! 
Thanks so much for all your love and support. :)

Blessings


A deer that a family has as a pet haha. Then there's all the district leaders, zone leaders, and President Marsh and Elder Costa of the 70 for MLC (Mission Leader Conference), Some lady gave us tacos while we were tracking  I love Hispanics. We found a cute stray dog named jj. We both wanted to keep him.

Hello everyone!

I hope y'all had a fantastic week! This week was so great here in Georgia, and although we had some downfalls it was ultimately very successful!

One thing that has really stuck out to me this week was how important it is to trust that the Lord will help you reach your goals. This week we started off by getting two new investigators that we were really excited about. We had set a goal to get three, and by Saturday evening around 7 we still only had two. We decided to say a prayer and follow the spirit, and we started knocking this street we felt good about. The very last door we knocked, a lady opened and let us right in. She is going through a very hard spot in her life, and was excited for us to teach her family. We taught her and her oldest son Jonathan, and are so excited to continue teaching them! The Lord will bless us when we set worthy goals. 

We also had MLC this week, where we learned about how and why we should include talking about peoples families more when we meet them! We have such a unique and powerful message that we need to share with everyone. We know that God has a plan for us, and through this plan we can live with our families with eternity! I have loved talking more with people this week about their families and sharing the knowledge I have about the Plan of Salvation with everyone.

I hope that you all have a good week, thanks so much for all your emails and support!

Me voy a Riverside!!


They're blurry some of them but these are pictures with some of the greatest people I love so much!


Hello family and friends!
Yes, I am getting transferred which was a huge surprise. Hermana Ramirez left for Mexico this morning and I am going to Riverside and was called to be an stl (sister training leader) there. I could not be more excited but also nervous for this amazing opportunity! If anyone has any advice let me know. :)
This week was great, and I have loved the time I have spent here in Cumorah and with Hermana Ramirez. I have learned so much! 
Last Monday we had the opportunity to do family home evening with the cutest family ever and it was so much fun. It made me appreciate my family and it made me so happy because I know that through the Plan of Salvation eternal families are possible!
I love this gospel and the hope and happiness it brings, and I can't wait to have more adventures and get to know more people in riverside. I love you all so much and hope you have a great week!

Miracles from mosquitoes

Hello everyone!

Yes this week having mosquitoes constantly attacking us actually paid off! We were knocking doors getting eating alive, and a woman named Isabel saw that and let us right in. We talked for a while and she told us she had been to church before with her cousins in Mexico! We were able to say a prayer with her and her husband, and set up an appointment to return! It was so cool to see the spirit touch their hearts and they had so many questions and were so willing to learn more. We are so excited to go back and visit them!

This week we had another super cool miracle. We were knocking doors and this lady opened up. She didn't speak very good English, she was from Brazil and spoke a little Spanish. We explained who we were and she let us right in.  She told us her and her mother in law had prayed just 2 hours earlier to have someone sent from God to pray with them.  They felt their prayers would be answered and then we showed up!  It was seriously so amazing, and me and Hermana Ramirez said a prayer with them and the spirit was so strong.  We are going to pass them along to the Brazilian elders, I will keep you updated. :)
