01.30.17 - Don't Forget to Pray

Hola de Mexico! 

I hope you all are doing great :) 

This past week was pretty awesome. We had a meeting with our Presidente and he shared some incredible things with us.  It was for my generation of missionaries, just to see how we're doing, and to give us some more advice on how we can be the best missionaries we can be.  I also got to play the piano for it, both were hymns I had never heard of before so that was an adventure. A very rough one at that. But the meeting was incredible. I learned so many things, and how to become an even better missionary.  My testimony of prayer continues to grow and grow more each day, and I know without a doubt that He hears us when we pray with our hearts.  I am so grateful for the love and comfort we can receive by offering our hearts to him.  

My companion and I had some awesome, and super spiritual bonding moments this past week which is always the greatest thing ever.  I love her to pieces and I am so grateful for her. Everyday we learn how to teach better, and how to help each other more and more. 

We're trying to work together with the ward to reactivate the less actives... which there are a lot of. Like a lot. But we have a two or three couples that want to make it to the temple together! Which is super exciting! :D They have been coming to church every Sunday, and two of them received callings which they're super excited about. We taught one of them this last week, and he is really excited to take his wife to the temple. He has such a desire to learn more about the gospel... We can see the changes in his countenance already. It's incredible! :) We shared with him the video "Good things to come" by Jeffery R. Holland. (It's also one of my favorites, so if you haven't seen it, I would like to invite you all to watch it. And "Mountains to Climb", that one makes me cry every time) He loved the video and shared with us his feelings about it.  I know he has a testimony, because we can feel the spirit so strongly when he shares it.  

We also had an activity with one of the other areas this past week.  And we taught 5 less actives, and holy smokies was the spirit powerful.  I don't think we've had a day were the spirit was as powerful as it was that day.... All of the lessons were incredible, and I learned so much. 
This past week we've been focusing on developing more the charity and love of Christ, and I think that has really helped in all of our teaching. The more we have allowed the love of Christ to fill our hearts, the easier it is to understand and know the needs of the people we teach, and it's easier to listen to the promptings of the spirit.  

I love all of you so much, and I am so grateful for all of you! 

Love you all!!! 

Love, Hermana Brinton

2.15.17 - Hola Amigos!!

Hello everybody!


So sorry I didn´t get a written email sent out last week. It was kind of crazy.  And the time we`re given just flies by haha. We are doing awesome here in good ol Chilpo.  I love my area so much and I love the people. Everyday it`s getting a little bit hotter, and the work just keeps getting better and better. I love getting to serve the Lord at this time, and I love the people I´m serving with.  Just lots of love!! :) And the food is wonderful. hahha at this point, I can handle the spicy foods a lot better than my companion... and she´s from El Salvador. I´m not entirely sure how spicy they like the food there, but she doesn´t like too much spicy here. So that keeps it interesting :)  Oh my heavens, one of the members here makes tacos in the evening for a living and hoooooly smokies. Literally the best tacos I have ever had in my whole life.  SO GOOD. just had to share that with you :)
The past couple of weeks have been wonderful. We´ve been teaching lots of people, …

05.01.17 - Transfers!

So Hermana Can and I didn't have transfers this week and we are suuuuper happy about that. We'll be sticking here together until June!!! There is never a dull moment with her. haha teaching is absolutely wonderful, and we're finding new people every week. The work is hastening and I love being a part of it! 

This last week we had a conference on Family History... or maybe it was two weeks ago, I truthfully don't remember. But! I want to encourage all of you to get to work on your family history! It's so incredible the Spirit that we can feel, and the protective power that we receive. 
I just want to let you all know how much I love you and how grateful I am for all of you. I know that missionary work is the work of God, and that we're living in the latter days. I am so grateful to be here and sharing this message with the people we meet every day. 
Things to remember for this week:  1. Every member is a missionary 2. All things work out in the end. Be patient, …

3.21.17 - Primera Cambios en el Campo!

Hola! 

Okay, so we had transfers today, and guess who I'm with?! That's right, Hermana Can from Cuernavaca. She is such an angel! I loved our one day together back in January, and I'm super excited to actually get to work with her for reals this time haha. 
We're doing great here in our little area of Sauces! We contacted lots of people this last week, like lots and lots. and we have new investigators! I love when we have new investigators. Because it means we get to teach! And the lessons are always my favorite :) We have a lot of people to contact this coming week as well.  All in all, the work is coming along great, and I feel like I'm becoming more and more the missionary that my Heavenly Father wants me to be.  I feel like I'm learning more and more each day and it's wonderful! I'm grateful for the time I had with Hermana Rosales, and all that I learned from her. And I'm excited to get to learn even more with my new companion.  
Every day I'…
