04.24.17 - Press Forward With Faith and Steadfastness in Christ

Hello friends and family!!!

We're doing great here in Mexico. every week is a little hotter, and the raining season will be coming here pretty quick.  :) this last week was pretty wonderful. Every week just keeps getting better and better. I love this work so much, and that I get to be a missionary in this time.  
This last Sunday, we got to talk in sacrament meeting about missionary work, and what Gordon B. Hinckley wrote about it in "The Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley", and it was pretty great. I want to encourage all of you to read his book... it's wonderful :) I love it. After speaking, we sang "I'll go where you want me to go" and yours truly got to play the piano. haha Wasn't the first time playing in our ward, but yeah. It was lots of fun :) hahaha. I am loving the field and getting to serve and teach with Hermana Can. She is such a sweetheart, and we teach great together. 
This week, we shared the video from Easter with one of the less acti…

04.17.17 - Tengo Gozo en Mi Alma Hoy

Doing wonderfully here in Mexico!!!
I´m sorry this isn't going to be super long, but I just wanted to say "hola" and that I hope all is well in Springville. 
This past week was especially special because we got to remember the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that he came, died, and was resurrected. I know that He lives, and because He lives, we can live again. I am so grateful for His love, and for all that He has done for me. He is my Savior, and Redeemer, and I will be forever grateful for all that He does, and has done for me. 
I love you all so much! I want to invite all of you to continue remembering Him, and not only for this past Sunday. He lives, and because of Him, we will live again.
Take care! Be safe! 
Love you all, 
Hermana Brinton

04.10.17 - (I couldn't think of a subject, but this is for the peeps) ;)

This past week was wonderful, we contacted lots of people and we have a couple people set for a baptismal date! The only thing they need to do is attend church, pray, read the scriptures, and learn for themselves. I love being a missionary and getting to help others come to Christ. And I especially love when they look back on their lives- at the beginning of our lessons, and now where we´re at in our lessons, and how much they´ve progressed and changed in that time. I love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. It´s the greatest. I love getting to see the spirit working in their hearts and lives, and then when they recognize that spirit. It´s the best.
I love getting to see how much I've changed…. I feel like I was a pretty good person before my mission, but now, I just want to be even better in every aspect of my life. I love everyone, and I am so happy all the time. The love for the people here that I feel is indescribable, and I know that it´s the love of our Heavenly Father. I´m learning more …

04.03.17 - Conferencia General ♥

Hello friends and family!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend watching General Conference. I sure know I did. This conference was so incredible! I felt like every talk had something special just for me, and holy smokies were the messages powerful.  I was able to watch all of the sessions, but one, in English so I was pretty happy about that. But I believe that the session that we watched in Spanish was more powerful than the others for me. Because I´m still learning the language, there were a few things I didn't understand completely, but the things I understood touched my heart with the Spirit on a whole different level. And the message that President Monson had for all of us... Short, but so powerful.  I am so grateful for the opportunity we have every six months to listen to the prophets voice, and hear our Heavenly Fathers voice through him. I know that every talk is divinely prepared for us. I know that in ever talk, there´s something special that we can use to learn, or t…
