April 2, 2018

Hello everyone! Happy Easter a day late! I hope that y'all had a wonderful Easter, and had time to really reflect on the marvelous gift that God and Jesus Christ have given us. Really, through Jesus Christ and His sacrifice, we can live again! 

Also, I hope that y'all had a chance to watch general conference because it was BOMB! Oh my goodness the spirit was so strong and I was so grateful for a living prophet who guides us under the direction of Jesus Christ. I know that he receives revelation and knows how to help us in this crazy world! How grateful I am to know that God has not left us to fend for ourselves.

This week we had exchanges and meetings and I learned a lot each day. One of the highlights was a lesson we taught a family about the Plan of Salvation. They were so sweet and the spirit was so strong. You could tell that they were feeling it, and they were all so engaged! The kids remembered all the steps, and the parents are excited to have us back to talk more about how they can be an eternal family! Yay! 

I am so grateful for all of you, and I love you all so much.
Have a fantastic week!

Happy Easter

Hello everyone!!!!

First of all, Happy Easter! This whole week I have been so excited, I love Easter so much and the knowledge we have that because of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, all of us will be able to live again as well! I am so grateful for Jesus Christ, and His example and sacrifice for each of us. 

Also, for some super exciting news, Magaly was baptized this week! Por fin! hahaha we are so excited for her! She is so sweet and I just love her so much. I have worked with her for a while in this area, and it has been so cool to see her faith grow and to see her make the decision to follow Jesus Christ and be baptized. It was a roller coaster of emotions down until the very end (they had to redo her baptism 6 times because she couldn't get under) but so worth it. As one hermano said, when we are baptized we are returning to God and will be able to live with Him forever. I love that!

We also had zone conference this week, which was fantastic to be able to see everyone and feel of the spirit strongly all together! I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary!

Love you all! 
Have a good week!

This week was fantastic! We taught lots of lessons and went on lots of exchanges. I absolutely love the sisters in the zone so much!

The first exchange I was able to go with Sister Lu and she is so sweet! She is from Taiwan and is learning English. She makes THE BEST food and she is so willing to work hard and have fun! I love her tons.

I was also able to go with Sister Gneiting and that was a ton of fun too. She is a great missionary and example to all those around her. I Just love the sisters so much!

Anyways this Sunday we also spoke in sacrament meeting so that was great. :) 

OH! And we were able to go to help out a member paint their back deck, it was a ton of fun and we listened to conference talks and it was fantastic. 

Also, we met a girl from ecuador on sunday who is the sweetest thing! We got in and started talking to her, and she really just wants to learn. She was so eager to have her questions answered, and when we gave her a pamphlet to have her read she was so excited to learn more. She is so sweet. 

I love the people here, I love Georgia so much, and I love and am so grateful for the miracles I see every day!

Crazy news everyone! I'm not getting transferred!!  Haha I will continue to be STL here in Lilburn. (For those of you keeping count, that is a total of 6 transfers, 9 months, half my mission spent here) haha so yup it's pretty insane.  I am so excited though. We got great things happening here in Riverside. Speaking of exciting things, our investigator is finally getting baptized on March 25th!! Yesterday at church she was telling everyone, and she is just so excited and we are so excited for her!! :) yayyyy!
Also, this week we were able to find a lot of new people to teach, and we had quite a few people that were able to come to church!
I love being a missionary and I know that the Lord has a greater plan for each of us. I know that I am staying here for a reason and I am so excited for the next transfer! 
Also, this week was crazy because I was able to see my trainer, Hermana Bailey!  She came back to visit Georgia and it was so fun to see her and some of the other old hermanas that came back to visit.
A mission is the best you make so many great friends.

I love you all so much!
Have a great week!

Hello everyone!!

This week was absolutely fantastic and I am so grateful to be a missionary! We had a ton of tender mercies and saw so many miracles this week! 

One miracle was knocking into a few really cute families who really want to learn more and are willing to change and come closer to Christ. 

We went on exchanges this week with some sisters, and I learned so much from her. We were also able to knock in a neighborhood where a lot of people speak Spanish and I was able to talk to them, which was a huge blessing for me. I love the Hispanic culture so much!!!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to still be here in this branch, I love the people here and the members so much.

I am so grateful for the power of the priesthood that we have on the earth again today. I know that truly the miracles have not ceased, and I know that because God loves us He has given us so many blessings. 

I love you all tons,

I can't come up with creative titles anymore, I'm sorry to disappoint. 

But as always, this week was fantastic. It started off with an amazing temple trip with the zone! I absolutely love going to the temple, and I am so grateful for the blessing it is in our lives. I know that it is the house of the Lord and that we can feel of His spirit there. I know He loves us and will help us receive answers to our questions if we read the scriptures and pray. I love this gospel! I love my Heavenly Father and I am so grateful for Jesus Christ. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my testimony with the people her in Georgia. 

The work is going great,  we had quite a few lessons and are looking forward to some baptisms in the near future.

Oh and also, Sister Rhoton and I hit our YEAR MARK IN GEORGIA!! Isn't that so insane?! It was a great day and it was fun to think back to how much we have grown and changed on our missions. The Lord is definitely shaping us each day. Trust in His plan! 

I love you all so much!!
Have a good week!

Hello y'all!!

Well, surprise surprise, this week was fantastic!!

My companion and I were able to go on a lot of exchanges with the sisters in the zone this week, which is always so much fun! We were able to learn lots and I am so grateful for the sisters in the zone! I always learn so much from them. When I was with Sister Lott, who is serving in a biking area, every time we passed someone she would happily hop off her bike and talk to them. She is a great example to me of talking to everyone and sharing the happiest message on earth with them all!!

We also found a lot of new people to teach this week, and got a lot of referrals for the English missionaries. 

A great part of the week was also our Valentine's day fiesta which we had on Saturday night. We had a lot of investigators show up, and everyone had a ton of fun. There was so much laughter, food, and dancing, and I just love the Hispanic culture so much! It was great.

Oh and the best news? One of our investigators attended a baptism with us yesterday, and she turned to me and said, I'm ready to be baptized soon too. It's my turn. Yay! We have been working so hard with her, and it has been so great to see her progress and grow closer to Jesus Christ. She desires to follow Him and I am so proud of her and happy for her.

I love y'all tons!!!
