2.20.17 - Come What May and Love It

Hello Everyone! 

This past week was pretty awesome, as every week has been :) The mission is great and I love it so much here. This past week we had interviews with President Avila and his sweet wife. I love them so much. The interviews are always getting better because I understand Spanish more and more each time, and it's just awesome.  With Hermana Avila, she asked us to imagine ourselves as investigators and think about our progress (but as missionaries). How are you progressing? What changes have you made? How are you using the Atonement of Christ everyday in your life? How have you improved? As I thought about these questions, I thought about the past few months here in Mexico and my experiences as a missionary... I want to invite all of you to ask yourselves these questions, and think about your personal progression as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  I promise that the Spirit will testify to your heart as it did to mine.  I felt the love Heavenly Father has for me, and how he wants me to improve, and better myself as a missionary. I know the things I need to do to improve, and I know that I will have the help of the Lord every step of the way.  

Our Zone Conference on Wednesday was awesome. I love getting to listen to the messages of our leaders, and how we can all better ourselves as missionaries. Basically, zone conferences are the best :) 
This week a guy pulled over in his car, and shouted "Hey you! Do you know English?!" and told him that I do, and he asked a few questions, and all in all, he wants to receive the lessons. He's been trying to decide between religions and wanted to hear about ours, but he only speaks English. Hermana Rosales had me translate her testimony and write it down on a piece of paper in English and she's been practicing. I'll keep you updated on his progress :)
We also found this super awesome lady, Gloria. And she came to church with us on Sunday, (after having previously attended a baptist church for 25 years) and all in all, she said that it was really quiet, and wasn't quite sure how to feel about the Book of Mormon. She wants us to keep visiting her every once in a while, but I'm not sure she wants to come to church again haha.
We're helping a family prepare for the temple in April, and we are so excited for them. I am seriously so excited. They're doing everything they can to be ready and it is just the greatest thing ever. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY :D.....

.....oopsies. That sent too soon haha. 
I was basically finished anyway, but I love you all so much and I am so grateful for you! 

Love Hermana Brinton

Also, I will send photos next week...I accidentally left my cable at the house.

7.3.17 - Independence Day

Hello Everybody! 

These last couple of weeks have been pretty great, and super busy.  We're still tryin to get to know our area-it's pretty big haha. But it is super beautiful here, and I love it. LOVE IT. Tezoyuca is incredible, and super green.  Basically it's the greatest. 
We had our Conference this last week and it was wonderful.  The Spirit was super strong and I am loving being a missionary. I have learned so many things, and especially the last few weeks as a trainer, I feel like I've learned even more.  My testimony and love for missionary work continues to grow, and I am more and more grateful each day for the opportunity to be here.  We have challenges, but we grow so much more from them, and always come out on top. It has been an incredible process for me to see how much my companion, Sister Diaz is already progressing in her testimonies and being.  She was already an incredible young woman when she came, but now, and with each week, she continues to grow i…

6.19.17 - First Week of Training

Well I'm going to consider this week a success. One of the best and most stressful weeks of my life. But I loved every minute of it :D

My new companion is suuuuuper awesome and we get along like peas in a pod. She is from the Dominican Republic and she speaks English :D so I'm pretty happy that I get to practice my English every once and a while. Especially because my brain was forgetting how to talk. I don't know how to explain it .... I can think in English, and write in English, but talking en English has become more difficult than I'd like to admit. but it's fine hahaha :D We practice every once and a while and it's pretty wonderful. 
We are in Tezoyuca and it is super beautiful here. There are tons of trees and the mountains are covered in green. I feel right at home :) The members here are wonderful, and they love visiting investigators with us. So everybody is happy.  
This last week was full of meeting new people, getting to know the area and trying to …

6.12.17 - I'm going to be a mom!!!!

Haha Hello everyone! 
Yes, if all of you are worried about the subject line. It's true. I'm going to be a mom! I'm going to be training a new missionary. I don't know who or when I'm going to meet her, but it's going to be today and I am so excited and nervous. On top of that, I'll be opening an area... which means I have no idea where anything is in the new area haha!  I am seriously so excited though. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach, but especially to learn! It's going to be so much fun and I can't wait to get started. We're going to be meeting the new missionaries later today and then we'll be headed to our new area. It's called Desayuca... or something like that. Not entirely sure, but it's going to be tons of fun!!!! I've already heard tons of wonderful things about my new area and I can't wait to get started. 
Also, some more exciting news, we had a baptism here this last Saturday and holy smokies it was …
