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

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 …
