Week 37

December 30, 2013
Church tour...right now?

Well this week was pretty great. I think the biggest reason why was because I got to talk to my family! That made me so happy. The biggest surprise was definitely getting to talk to Baylee, we both were not expecting that. And apparently we are still very much twins, we were wearing the same sweater ha ha.
Yesterday ended up being a little bit crazy. Our district leader and his companion had told us a few days before that one of their investigators and a less active member of their ward who are engaged will probably start going to our ward in the new year because I guess their was some drama going on in their ward. So we asked if we could meet them sometime so we would know who they are. Well at3:45 the elders texted us and asked if we could do a church tour at 4! Our ward ends at 4. We hadnt done a church tour in a long time so I quickly tried to review it with Sister Rasmussen. The building was still loud and full of people when they got there so we just talked for a little while. Then we started the tour. Our district leader disappeared for a little while to get some stuff set up and we led the tour with the other elder. I some how ended up teaching almost the entire thing by myself. I guess thats what happens when you've been out longer than the other 2 missionaries your with ha ha. At the end of the tour we invited the investigator to be baptized and he said that if it feels right he will do it :) So that was awesome! Our district leader showed up just in time for the closing prayer. He called us later and said that he had been ease dropping on our lesson! But that we did a great job for doing it at the last minute. I am so glad it went well. When you let the spirit be a part of your teaching it makes it so much more powerful. We have to have the spirit with us or else we really cant teach. (I hope this makes sense ha ha)
 We also went through our investigators and dropped a lot of people this week. But then we started seeing miracles! We got a new investigator! That was awesome and we were able to see some people we had not seen in a long time.
 Well I hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Feliz Natal!

 Merry Christmas everyone! Can I just say that I am so excited to talk to my family in 2 days! That is going to be so awesome :)
 This week was a little bit slower, mostly because I got a little bit sick. Nothing serious just an ongoing headache and my stomach hurt. But I feel much better now :) I stayed in one night because of being sick which was awful. It made me realize how much I love doing missionary work and being a missionary.
 So funny story...caution- if there are little children around do not let them read this next paragraph. So Sister Black asked us to help wrap up her kids gifts from Santa and I got put in charge of writing on the tags...but I kind of made a small mistake. Instead of putting from Santa... I put from Satan ha ha. Good thing I caught that mistake there is a big difference between those two people. Ha ha.
Yesterday I had a thought that all I wanted for Christmas was for our investigators to come to church. And then guess what! They did come! That was definitely the best gift I could have gotten this week :) It was the Christmas program in our ward too and so it ended up being really good. I'm so grateful that Heavenly Father gave me that simple gift, it made me so happy.
Well, I really don't know what else to say since I will be talking to some of you in a few days :) I guess to end I just want to say that we should always remember that Christmas is about Christ. We should always remember the one who gave up everything so that we can be happy and return to our Heavenly Father. I love you all so much and hope you have an great Christmas!

Week 35

December 16, 2013


 How is everyone doing? Well this week was great. We had mission Christmas conference on Tuesday with half of our mission. We talked a lot about the real meaning of Christmas and President Ware talked a lot about the atonement. Something he said really touched me about Christ and the atonement. He said- "He knows your pains, He knows any unfairness you have felt, He heals us." I know that is true. Everything is made fair through the atonement, but we have to be willing to let Christ and His atonement into our lives or else it doesn't help us like it could.
 Another awesome part of mission conference was we got to watch 'Monsters University'! It was so weird to watch a movie! I can tell I've been out a while because I started relating all of it to missionary work ha ha. There's companion inventory and districts in it if you watch it with missionaries in mind :)
 We went caroling as a district on Saturday. It was really fun! We each picked out 1 or 2 people we wanted to see then we drove around and sang to them all. We went and sang to a less active couple in our ward who we see every week and then the next day she came to church! So that was great :) I think it is so important to remember that this time of year is all about love and showing your love. That is what I want to focus on this Christmas.
Well I hope you all have a great week! Keep on smiling :)

Week 34 8 months

December 9, 2013

As botas! (Boots!)

Ola familia!

Well this week was pretty good! We stayed kind of busy with two ward activities and it was awesome because some very less active members came to both the activities. It is always exciting to see less actives come to any activity!

We had 2 kind of big miracles this week...

1. One of my zone leaders- Elder Cantrell, has become very worried that I am going to freeze. Last Monday we went and looked for some boots and didn't find any, so Elder Cantrell told us to go and look sometime during the week. So Sister Black (I live with the Black's) took us shopping on Saturday but we only had about 30 minutes. Well the miracle is that we found some boots for me in 15 minutes! Sister Black named that- the miracle of December 7th :)

2. We got a new investigator this week! Her name is Michelle. Her boss actually lives in our zone leaders ward and had invited her to church and she went with him. Then they realized that she lives in our area, so the elders gave us all her information and we met with her on Friday...and we are going back this Friday to teach her more! I am so excited to have a new investigator, we hadn't had a new one in a long time, so this is awesome!

Well I hope everyone is having a great week! Don't forget the real meaning of Christmas...its really all about love if you think about it :) I love you all! Keep on smiling :)

December 2, 2013


Well this week in WA was kind of slow. We didn't really get to teach any lessons because our investigators were sick and a lot of people were out of town, so that was disappointing.

So funny story early Thursday morning I was teaching in my sleep. So I remember that I was talking about families but I couldn't say why families are important and so I was saying how much I love my family and how grateful I am for them...then I asked a question...then I woke up and I was kneeling on my bed and sitting up. Sister Rasmussen woke up too and we were like, why are we awake? I am definitely a missionary ha ha. But I have to say I am not really a fan of teaching when I should be sleeping, it makes me kind of tired the next day.

Thanksgiving was good. We spend part of it with a family in our ward and they invited over a less active couple and another family. We kind of got banished to the kid table because there were so many adults. But it was fun and I think we had a better time being with the kids then we would have had with the adults.

In our district meeting this week we practiced teaching the Restoration in 60 seconds. It is a lot harder than I expected. But it was good practice because we ended up teaching a little bit of the Restoration on someones porch while we were tracting this week. I am so grateful for all the meetings we go to. I learn so much from them.

Also Baylee reminded me that it has been a year since we opened our mission calls. I was terrified and excited about going to Brazil and I never would have thought that I would be in WA. I dont know whats going to happen with my visa but I am grateful for the chance I have to serve a mission. Its changed my life in so many ways.

Well I hope you have a great week! Keep on smiling :)
