5.8.17 - He Sends Blessings, He Sends Blessings

Hello All!!!! 

I hope you´re all doing wonderfully and enjoying every day! 

This last week, we had some pretty special experiences. We we´re talking to a less active this last week, who is also a returned missionary, and he gave us some awesome ideas for finding new people, and achieving our goal of a baptism every week.

One of the members of our ward lost her brother this last week in a horrible accident... and when we visited her, her sadness was apparent, but her testimony was shining like a light. I know that my testimony of the Plan of Salvation grew a mile in our visit with her, and I´m so grateful for the knowledge and testimony I have of it.

We´re finding new people each week, and we´re starting to work even more with the ward to keep the work moving forward.

We had a conference with our mission president yesterday about ward counsel and how we can work together better. We also had a change in the number of times our investigators need to attend church before they can be baptized. It was five before, and now it´s three. and if they´re really ready, it´s two!! I´m so excited to keep moving forward in the work of the Lord and finding those whom he is preparing for the message that we have. 

I´m sorry this is a little short, we didn't have a whole lot of time today with all that we had to do. 
I hope you all have a great week! Be safe, and follow the promptings of the Spirit that you receive :) 

Love you all to pieces!

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, …
