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

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'…
