3.14.17 - There is Sunshine in My Soul Today

Buenas tardes mi familia!! Y amigos! :) 

I hope all of you are doing splendidly. This past week, lots happened and I'm so excited to tell you all about it, but I don't have a ton of time so buckle your seat belts. It's probably going to be a little rough. 

We found some new people to teach, and the lessons went awesome. They didn't come to church though, so that was pretty sad. Because of the area we were teaching in, there were lots and lots and lots of bugs. Don't worry mom, I always wear lots of bug spray, but the little nasties here are pretty persistent.... and that's what happened with my legs. Nothing poisonous bit me (that I'm aware of hahaha) and I feel fine so no worries :) My legs are "muy fayo" as of this point with the bites they left me with.  One of the ones on my ankle is from a spider btw. But I'm happy and we're doing awesome here! 

This is my last week of the 12 week program they have for us to do in the field, which means I'm 4 months into the work! I can't believe how quickly time has gone... I have loved every minute of it, and I've learned so much. 
I learned some pretty important things this week... Things that are special to me, and I want to share with you because you're all special to me. 
First off, I was studying in True to the Faith this week, on faith. Loooove love love True to the Faith. These are the things that stood out to me:
-Faith is a principle of action and power
-In order for your faith to lead you to tslavation, it must be centered in the Lord Jesus Christ
-Having faith means relying completely on Him-trusting in His infinite power, intelligence and love.
-Remember that vecuase He has experienced all your pains, afflictions, and infirmities, He knows how to thelp you rise about your daily difficulties... He has "overcome the world" and prepared the way for you to receive eternal life. 
-He is always ready to help you as you remember His plea: "Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not." 
-The Lord will work mighty miracles in your life according to your faith.
-Like all blessings from God, faith is obtained and increase through individual obedience and righteous action. 
I loved reading, and studying about faith, and I want to encourage all of you this week to take a minute or five and study it for yourself, and then ask yourself how you can increase your faith, and how you can nourish it everyday. And then do it :)

Something else that I learned this week and know to be true, is that we each have a divine purpose here on this earth... and that Satan is going to do everything in his power to keep us from achieving that. He knows of the difference we can make in the world if we do the things that our Heavenly Father wants us to, and he knows of our potential. He attacks those in the church because he knows of the difference we can make. I know that some of you, or all of you are passing through something or will pass through those things, life is not without opposition. But I want each of you to remember your divine purpose, your potential, and the difference you can make in the world. And then determine to not let anything keep you from achieving it.  Pray for strength, and I promise that Heavenly Father will hear your plea, and he will send help. 

I'm always praying for you, and I'm 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…

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, …
