5.29.17 - Hey Fam Bam!

Hope all of you are doing great :) 

Mexico is wonderful, and every day it´s a little hotter here hahaha. We are currently waiting for the rain season. :)

This last week has flown. We are finding new people every week, and it is seriously wonderful.  We have a family that is preparing to be baptized this next week or the following week, so we are super excited for them. Since we began teaching them, I have already seen a huge difference in them. There is a new light in their eyes and every time we visit them I just want to cry and hug them because it´s the best thing ever. 

My companion and I are doing wonderfully. We seriously get along super well and it´s the best thing ever. I can finally crack jokes in spanish... well. only with my companion because the only jokes I know are in english and I have to explain a little bit, but she laughs.... even if it is only out of courtesy ;) But truly, we get along great haha :) We´re learning lots from one another, and have tons of fun. 

I have homework for all of you! YAY!!! haha not really, but I do have something I would like to invite all of you to do with us as missionaries here in mexico. We are reading the Book of Mormon (big surprise there haha), but we are marking 6 themes. 
1. Names or references to Jesus Christ
2. Attributes of Jesus Christ
3. Doctrine and principles of the Gospel of Christ
4. Words from Christ (like when he is actually speaking, or the prophets say, ¨and the Lord says ¨.....¨) 
5. Actions or things that the Lord asks us to do, or things we can do
6. The blessings that we receive from doing those things in number 5.

We are doing this as a mission, and I want to invite you all to do it with us. I have already gained a greater appreciation for the Book of Mormon, and especially for the blessings it contains. 

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 …

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 w…
