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.

Hi Everybody! 

That's exciting for Jordan and Marinda!! Such a cute baby! 

SAY WHAT??  Granny and Pa are moving!! WOAH!!!!  I didn't see that one coming!!

I don't need anything! I'm doing great! Things have been a ton better! Sorry.. This is gonna be short. I don't feel like writing but mom would shoot me if I didn't...  But just for the record. Me, Elder Laulu, Elder Call and Elder Brazier were playing a game of pig! Now these Elders are ballers! They chuck it from half court and sink it... Then there's me... Haha.. but I just wanted to brag for a sec..I BEAT THEM WITH THE GRANNY SHOTS!! And got Elder Laulu with a shot that wasn't even to the 3 line.. Haha. Just so y'all know.. 😉 

Well this week was awesome!! ☺️ we had a baptism this week! It was great! Austin is just awesome! He said he felt amazing after! So excited for him!! He's such a good kid! He really has been prepared by the Lord.. But yeah! It was was really cool though! Afterwards his girlfriend came up to us and gave us the biggest hugs. She was so grateful. It was really cool. I told her to give him a big hug since we can't.. Haha. But yeah! Super proud of him!! 

We also went to Melanie's sister's quiñcinera...?  I dunno how to spell Spanish words... Haha.. You know what I mean! But she spent literally 10k on this party!! It's ridiculous.. But there was a lot of interesting people... Like the security guard guy that was trying to get me to dance with him.... That was terrifying!! He also said some super awkward things to Sister Seely..hahaha it was hilarious!! Too much excitement for two Mormon missionary girls... haha. Never again... But it was really good because Melanie was really hoping we would be there. So yeah. Haven't met with her for awhile but this week hopefully! 

So then yesterday we saw Carol. Haha.. She's hilarious!! Her friend LoyAnn was there. They were both going through a really hard time. And we just talked about how Christ lifts us and heals us. It was really cool!! Then we gave her a Book of Mormon and she was just opened it right then and starting reading from it. She is apparently living with Carol now so that will be convenient. 

Here's a sweet quote!! Take all that in!! "To take His name upon us means a willingness to do whatever He requires of us. “Someone has said that the price of a Christian life is the same today as always: it is simply to give all that we have, holding back nothing, to ‘give away all [our] sins to know [Him]’ (Alma 22:18). When we fall short of that standard by reason of sloth, indifference, or wickedness; when we are evil or envious, selfish, sensual, or shallow; we, in a sense at least, crucify Him afresh. And when we try consistently to be our very best, when we care for and serve others, when we overcome selfishness with love, when we place the welfare of others above our own, when we bear each other’s burdens and ‘mourn with those that mourn,’ when we ‘comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and … stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places’ (Mosiah 18:8–9), then we honor Him and draw from His power and become more and more like Him, growing ‘brighter and brighter,’ if we persist, ‘until the perfect day’ (D&C 50:24)” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1999, 33; or Ensign, Nov. 1999, 27)." 

So yeah!! All is great!! I just really wanna play.. But I love you all!! Thanks for all your support! 

Love always, 

Sister Hood
