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.

Well HELLO my lovely peeps! 😁 

I hope all is well in your lives! I also hope none of you are dying from what is going around here.. haha. It spreads like wildfire thru all the missionaries! I, luckily, got something different before that got to me... haha. Poor Baum has been dead this week. We stayed home a couple days again this week.. it's really hard when we have Missionary Correlation Meeting and we have like nothing to report except a couple visits and lessons... Awkward.. but!! We try our best!!

Transfers are actually tomorrow! And our ZONE is being broken up.. 😩😩 even though we will still be the only sisters, the elders who are leaving were an important part our lives.. they will be missed.. One elder who I have known since my birth is going up to Shasta and the other elder I have known since birth is dying.. 😩 it's a sad cycle of life sometimes. BUT!! I also found out that a super good friend is also coming down here to be our District Leader!! I'm so excited!! He's one of my favorites! 😁 oh!! Also, just before the transfer boards came out, Sister Marston called me and asked if I would be the Sister Training Leader for our zone! So that's exciting! It bothers me when people say that we are "over" the sisters... NO!! We have the opportunity to SERVE them.. no one is over anyone.. they just have different responsibilities.. but yeah!! So that will be a great experience to go to Missionary Leadership Council and work with the other sisters... well. Kinda. Because we're the only sisters in our zone... so!! We will see how that will work... haha. But that's the news for transfers and stuff!!

It was a good week this week! We did have a few lessons and stuff!

We met with Mia and Araceli last night! We just read the Book of Mormon with them and helped them understand it. It was awesome. Mia brought our popsicles so we had popsicles and just got closer to each other. 😊 I haven't felt that at home since Corning. So that was a tender mercy. 😊 

We also met with a Spanish investigator, Virginia, and her husband Fransisco. They speak ZERO English... so I'm still no help at all except to bare a SUPER simple testimony.. haha. Baum taught them the restoration. They didn't say anything... literally nothing the whole time... I wanted to ask questions but I couldn't because I don't know the words.. so that was a little rough. They invited us back But we are planning on having Hermana Perez come with us. She is a super good member who comes with us to see Maria. So that will help! 😊 

We had a lesson with our other Spanish investigator Maria. She has so many questions about what church is really true. She says she knows a lot of them say that they have prophets and everything and she is sincerely looking for the truth. She has been Seventh Day Adventist, Jehovah's Witness, and Catholic. She is searching and she is being prepared. We are fasting for her on Thursday. She will come around. 

Then we finally got to meet with a less-active. Her name is Heather. We have been trying to meet with her since I've been here. She's just super busy. But we finally caught her and she said she has no faith, basically and that she felt like when she would ask questions when she had just joined the church that everyone would just kind of ignore it.. so that's kinda what she felt. But we are going to keep seeing her hopefully. 

Then we just had a Book of Mormon class with Becky. That was good! She just brings up the most awkward analogies.. hahaha!! I won't even repeat it but it was hilarious. 😂😂 oh Becky... we didn't get to meet with her because we have been sick and she went to Seattle.. so we haven't addressed the smoking thing yet.... but hopefully very soon... 😊 

But yeah! That's pretty much the week! We went to an arcade/mini golf place today because one of the Mission presidency counselor owns it! Haha. It was a RIOT!! I will hopefully remember to get pictures from that. Haha. It was super fun though!! 

Quote I love: "If we don’t try, we’re just latter-day sinners; if we don’t persevere, we’re latter-day quitters; and if we don’t allow others to try, we’re just latter-day hypocrites. As we try, persevere, and help others to do the same, we are true Latter-day Saints. As we change, we will find that God indeed cares a lot more about who we are and about who we are becoming than about who we once were." --Elder Dale G. Renlund

And these quotes are just amazing!! All of them just tugged at my heart strings! 😊 maybe because I can relate to ALL of them more than I would care to admit, these days. 😏 

Love YOU ALL!!
