 Frio, Frio, Frio!!!!!


Well this week was kind of busy. We had zone meeting and zone conference. Both were great meetings and I learned a lot! We set some really high goals as a zone, which is a good thing but it definitely makes us stretch a lot.

At our zone conference Elder Richards from the second quorem of the 70 came and spoke to us. He talked to us a lot about teaching in simple, bold statements because when we do that the Holy Ghost can be there and help those we are teaching feel and know that our message is true. Teaching simply is kind of hard but its really helped me get to know the basic principles of the gospel better.

We have been talking a lot about faith in all of our meetings lately. I have come to realize that faith is a hard thing sometimes. And also that I think everyone has a different definition of faith. To me faith is all about trust. We have to trust that good things will happen when everything is falling apart. We have to trust that Heavenly Father knows exactly what we need. I know that my faith could use a lot of work and so that is a goal I have to be more faithful.

Also it is literally freezing here now. Every night this week has been in the teens! Ahhh! Sooo cold! I've come to realize that skirts are not warm at all ha ha.

Well I hope everyone is staying nice and warm. I cant believe NM is getting snow and we're not...actually I'm glad we're not. Have a great week and keep on smiling :)

week 31

November 19, 2013

Novamente???? (again?)

Hello everyone!
This week was great for the most part, some exciting things happened!
First off I got a visit from a friend- Michael Davenport! He served his mission in NM and he lives about an hour away from Yakima now. It was so weird to see him not as a missionary and me as the missionary. But it was good to see a friend and he gave us some good advice about making every day count. And he brought me a package from home and some pumpkin that was awesome too!
We also put our investigator- Angie on date to be baptized. She has to give up smoking so her baptismal date is January 1st! We are excited for her!
I think the only bad thing that happened this week was I found out that I have to fill out another background check for my visa. It is definietly frustrating that I keep having to fill out more paperwork and that I still dont have my visa. I wish I knew more about what was going on with it. I guess there is a reason for everything and I just have to be patient and trust that Heavenly Father has a reason I am still here.
We went to a trainer-trainee meeting this week and it helped me a lot! President and Sister Ware gave the trainers good advice on how we should be training and what we should be doing which was great because I had no idea what I was doing. I still dont know what I'm doing but at least I dont feel completly over whelmed anymore. One thing that is said at every meeting we go to with the Ware's is- "this is the Lord's work." I am so grateful that I get to help in this amazing work.
Well I hope you all have a great week! Keep on smiling :)

Week 30 7th awesome month

November 11, 2013

How's it going? Well 2 exciting things happened this week! One- I finally got permission to drive! I know that probably doesnt sound very exciting but after 7 months of being the passenger I was ready to be the driver.
The second greenie got here! Her name is Sister Rasmussen. She is 19 and from Ogden, UT. This has probably been the most stressful week of my mission so far because I had to completely take control of our area. Since I've only been in Yakima for 6 weeks I really dont know it very well, so it has been really hard trying to figure out things to do with my greenie. But things are going well so far.
The one thing that training has taught me so far is that I do need help sometimes...well actually I need quite a bit of help. I have been really humbled with trying to train Sister Rasmussen, I definitely dont know anything. I know that prayer works though and that I have gotten so much help this week from Heavenly Father and then from my district. Actually today my district leader and his companion are taking us on a church tour as an example for Sister Rasmussen. I am so grateful that they are willing to help us.
Oh! And it is definitely closing in on winter! We woke up on Wednesday, looked out the window was brumoso (foggy)! I couldnt see past our back fence. Crazy.
Well I hope everyone has a great week! Keep on smiling :)

week 29

November 4, 2013


Well this week was a little bit exciting because we got transfer calls. Annnnddddd....guess what? I'm going to be training a new missionary! I am very humbled by this assignment, I hope I can be a good trainer and help this new sister. I am a little bit scared because I've only been in my area for 6 weeks and I dont really know it very well, but I know everything will be ok. President Ware would not have asked me to train if he didnt think I could do it, so I must be an ok missionary to be able to train :)
Our ward had a Halloween party on Tuesday and some of our investigators and some less actives we have been working with came which was awesome! We went as mission fairies. I have really started to love the ward I am in. The members are really excited about doing missionary work and so along with our investigators coming to the activity there was also a lot of other nonmembers there. That definitely kept us busy with trying to meet everyone. But it was fun!
I was reading the ensign this week and found a quote I really liked by Gordon B. Hinckley- "do your best, your very, very, best. Say your prayers and work hard and leave the harvest to the Lord." I loved that. Its so true that when we do work hard and do our best than the Lord takes care of everything else. But we have to do our part too, but the Lord helps us with that too. He really does help with everything :)
Well I hope you all have a great week! Keep on smiling, I love you all!
