Two companions, Two areas, and One transfer left!!

October 13, 2014

Well, this is the start of what is going to be a GREAT transfer!! I was so shocked and surprised when I was put in a trio and covering two of which was my very first area.  How could life get any better!!! This was such a life lesson for me! I've had what I thought would be the "ideal" way to end my mission. But that was not really the ideal way to end it. Heavenly Father knew that I needed to be here in Great Falls/McLean 2nd with my two sweet companions! Oh, and speaking of companions...I have Sister Deaver and Sister Cordner! They are both sweethearts. Always thinking of others and having a good time. I'm so lucky that we have this opportunity to be together. I don't know how else to put into words how excited I am to be here!!

At church on Sunday I felt like I was coming home! It was neat to see everyone from the Great Falls ward again. But don't worry; I'm not too comfortable, because I have a whole new ward to get to know as well.
Thursday we got to watch "Meet the Mormons" It was so good! If you haven't watched it, WATCH IT!! I came away from it thinking, I want to do good everywhere I go! It was so inspiring! We all have goodness that we need to share with others!

On Saturday, we got to see a band play, National Tribute.  They play church music, don't worry! For one of the songs they asked all the missionaries to come up. It was neat. We got to sing about us...missionaries and how we are here to serve Heavenly Father!! Our investigator Jason came with us and loved it!

I know that we are doing a great work! And I know that God has our BEST interests in mind, even thought the change might not seem like it is really our best interest.

I love you all!
Have a great week!

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words!!!

October 7, 2014

So I have so many things that have happened in the past week, and a lot of pictures to go with it as well!! I hope everyone enjoys this past week of my mission in pictures this week!!
So last Monday we went to Mt Vernon on our Preparation day! It is amazing to feel the Spirit that is there. George Washington was a very inspired man that loved God!
Us sitting on George's back porch looking at the Potomac beautiful!
(These are George Washington's teeth...they aren't wooden!)
I also got to go on a great exchange with Sister Christensen! She is amazing!
We also did a lot of prep for Brian's baptism...and then Saturday was Brian's baptism!! The Spirit was so strong and we were so happy that he enjoyed it all!! It was such a testimony builder to me that every soul is so precious to Heavenly Father! I just felt God's love there at the baptism. I couldn't stop smiling!!

We also had General Conference that same day!!! I love listening to the prophet and the apostles. They always bring so much comfort and joy to my heart!
We watched one session with Grandma, a member from Liberya. She fed us African food! Here are some pictures of me eating Peanut Butter soup and's actually really yummy!  

Then on Monday night we got to go to the Temple with our investigator Chris.  We watched the Joseph Smith movie and my testimony of Joseph Smith being a prophet was strengthened! I just know God speaks to us today through a prophet. He loves us and wants us to have someone to tell us exactly what we need to hear. God speaks to us today!!!!
I just loved how pretty the temple looked at night.
I can't even adequately express in words how much we have been blessed this week. And I know that the Lord is mindful of all of us! He helped us to know who we need to see this past week and when. His timing is incredible!!

Love you all!!!
