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!

Hello 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!

Round 2!



The zone, with a  couple elders cropped in because they weren't there haha.
Hola a todos!

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!

Hey everyone!

This week was a good one, as usual. Nothing too out of the ordinary happened, just a lot of tender mercies, talking to random people, and knocking doors. Ya know, the usual.

One of the highlights this week was on Thursday we went to volunteer at this thrift store and I got to see the sweetest person ever. She is an older lady who works there, and when we were organizing clothes she saw me looking at a dress so she bought it for me! She is seriously the cutest and a tender mercy for me. I know God is watching out for us and sends us people to serve and help us. I'm so grateful for her, we are buds. :)

We also were able to go to a super cool birthday party for a member of our branch who was turning 5. It was cars themed, and so adorable. While there we were also able to meet a lot of friends and family who weren't members and get to know them. They weren't all from our area, but hopefully when they see missionaries in their area they will remember us and let them in!

We also had the opportunity to meet with an investigator and talk to her about the Book of Mormon. Her name is Margarita and she is so willing to learn. She has so many questions and is such a sincere, sweet lady. I'm so grateful for the Book of Mormon and the opportunity to bear testimony of it as a missionary. 

I love you all, have a good week!

Santa came early!!


Hello family and friends!

This week was super exciting, as we received the news that we are now allowed to use Facebook to proselyte and we also received smartphones! One of the assistants to the president dressed up as Santa and brought around all our new phones, it was pretty funny haha.

But seriously we are so excited for this new technology and these new opportunities and it is so amazing to see how this work is hastening! 

I am so grateful for this gospel and the opportunity to share it. I know that it has blessed my life so much, and has helped me become the person I am today. I know that we all have so much potential as God's children, and that He loves us so much. 

I'm so grateful for all of you and all of your support! For all of you who have stuck around this long and keep reading my emails, shout out to yall! You're halfway there! ;) haha

Some kittens were following us haha

We were scooping ice cream at an ice cream place :)

Hello everyone!!

I hope y'all had a fantastic week! Here in Georgia we definitely had lots of fun and adventures this week. 

We got the news that we will be able to begin using Facebook this Friday! I am super excited to be able to use this technology in proselyting! We are looking forward to seeing how it accelerates the work here. I will keep y'all updated. :)

One fun thing this week was that we were able to go on exchanges with some of the sisters in our zone. I always learn so much from exchanges, and this exchange was no exception! It was really cool as we spent the day learning from each other, and since I went with Sister Gifford who has been out for a while, I learned a lot of cool ideas! One of our favorite things to talk to people about is family history. It has been a big focus on our mission, and it is so fun to get to know people and help them get to know their family. 

Thanks everyone for all your love and support, I hope that you have a wonderful week!

Hello everyone!

I hope y'all had a fantastic week! This weekend was so wonderful because we were able to watch general conference! I received so many answers to my personal questions and prayers and I know that God truly calls prophets and apostles to bless us in our days! If you weren't able to watch it, I challenge you all to get on lds.org and read or watch the talks. Listening and heeding to the counsel given to us from modern prophets and apostles can bless our lives so much.

This week was also great because we had a small zone meeting and talked about how we can use family history work to talk to more people. We know that the message we share is so important to families not only the family we have here, but also the family that has passed on. It was so fun helping people we met discover more about their genealogy and help them set up accounts on familysearch.org

I love this work and am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary. I hope you all have a great week!
