My Missionary Scripture D&C 68:6

Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, that I am the Son of the Living God, that I was, that I am, and that I am to come.

Chicken Poop & Garlic!!

Hey Everybody!!!

Happy Fathers Day!!! 😃 hahaha!! You finally got Gussy a potty bell?! That's
so cute!! I miss little Gussy Boo! Oh. So I need some good church
CDs!!  Like up beat ones would be perfect!!

Well this week was full of miracles!! So first of all, I didn't die
giving my talk... Haha. Just kidding it wasn't that bad. The spirit
totally helped me to speak fluently. But the best one was I think on
Thursday. So we were visiting a non member and we were just walking to
the car and I looked over and the spirit prompted me to go knock on
the door... So I was like uh.. Sister Seely do you know who lives
there? She was like no.. Do you wanna go knock on that door? I was
like I dunno... I guess. So we did and we just treated it like a
normal door. Showed her the refiners fire video and talked about the
Atonement and stuff. As we were talking, I realized she had a
"Families can be together forever" sign on her wall and the picture of
Jesus. Right before we left we asked her name. She said Sylvia and we
both just stopped.... She was the less active we had been like for for
WEEKS!!!!! It was amazing... SOOO cool.. She also knows Jesus and will
hopefully come to his baptism on Sunday.

The next miracle was similar. So we were doing a zone Blitz. So all
the missionaries in our zone attack a certain area. This time it was
in Palo Cedro! I will live there one day.. In case you wanted to know.
It's sooooooo pretty! But the miracle!! So we were trying to find a
new investigator for the Elders to teach but weren't having any luck.
So we prayed to be able to find a new investigator. Now this was after
like 4 hours of no one. So finally we were looking through the list of
less actives they gave us and felt like we should go there. So we got
to this little tiny lane and there were no trespassing signs
everywhere but we decided to press on because the spirit said to. But
when we got to the less actives house, it was gated off. So Sister
Seely started leave and the spirit prompted us to go to their
neighbors. I was kinda not totally for it because we had to be back in
like 10 minutes. But the spirit prompted me even stronger so we ended
up going up to the door. We knocked and a cute lady named Tiffany
opened up and we talked and she let us in and we showed her and her
cute little boys (one of them was quite the free spirit...) but we
shared a message and she asked if we had anything to read to her boys.
We were like um yeah!!! So we gave her a Book of Mormon and she was
like oh. Awesome. Ya know I've really wanted to do something like this
and I wanted to help my boys be more safe in the world... So yeah, we
set an appointment and left. We were both just dumbfounded because
nobody asks us for a Book of Mormon... It was super cool! Prayers are

Another one. Similar thing. Except for it was our car fasting day and
so we weren't able to really meet with people because our area is huge
and people live in the boonies. So after we were done cleaning the
church we started walking home. And before we left we prayed that
someone would be placed in our path to teach. So then the house next
door to the church we met Robert... We taught him the restoration,
gave him a Book of Mormon and set an appointment. So that was super

One of saddest and upsetting things I have ever witnessed.. It was
also a miracle too!! So we were meeting the Carlos that night and we
even had a member set up to meet us. But Carlos called and he was sick
so he couldn't meet. So Sister Seely felt inspired to visit a less
active. Come to find out. He was living in a 4x6 shack behind his
house because his sister kicked him out. Come to find out he hadn't
eaten for 3 days, had no way to shower, brush his teeth or get clean
clothes... We freaked out and called Brother Lequia and he gave us
food to take over to him and stuff. But the most amazing and humbling
part was in his shack he hung up a family proclamation and a picture
of the temple... He only hadn't come to church cuz his sister sold his
van... I was SOOO annoyed and upset.. Man. But somebody from the ward
was supposed to visit him and nobody did..... They were supposed to
help him out and pick him up for church but nobody did. He showed up
because his nephew brought him. But yeah. It was super frustrating but an
amazing miracle. There is no doubt in my mind that we were supposed to
go there that night.

A referral we met with. His name is Ron. He is super spiritual and
stuff. We met with him twice. I invited him to be baptized and he said
yes. We haven't set a date yet. Probably next time we meet. But yeah!
Then another referral is Sylvia. We meet with her tomorrow. She seemed
super open! Super fun stuff!!

So the chicken poop and Garlic thing. So on the Zone Blitz we did some
service. So we were digging fence post holes and just digging holes.
But this lady had chickens and she had just cleaned out the coop so
chicken poop was everywhere and it was just nasty... Then after we dug
some holes she asked us to help her tie up her garlic to dry. So now
my hands still smell like garlic after like 3 days!! But it was
awesome! I loved doing some manual labor! AND I only got a little
sunburned!! #Blessed!

Super cool week!! We've kept busy and loved the work. If you send the
package to my home it will be faster in ways of me getting it because
Antelope is like 2 hours away. But it will probably be outside most of
the day. If you do - don't send expensive stuff - it's up to you. I love you all and I love
hearing from you every week!!
