The baptism was great! He was one happy person. Transfers are on the 8th so next week you will know if I stay or go. This week has been okay and is working on getting better! I Love the R.S. broadcast. It was great! Something I am trying to understand more of is how God is in every step of our life's and sometimes he lets things happen to us so that we can become better than we were before, and even when things happen that we don't like it doesn't mean that he has left us or that he loves us less. I am thankful for the chances I have to grow, there are many times in a day to allow yourself to change for the better. But it's our choice to take those chances to do so! I don't think I will be the same me when I go home, I get to be a better me. look out! love you all!

Baptism and tacos

Hey this week has been great.  Rich is GETTING BAPTIZED!!!  It will happen on Saturday.  We are so excited!  We are still trying to meet with Eric.  His schedule changes a lot. I am so excited to hear the broadcast.  I love this time of year! So last night, we ate at a members home and we had tacos and at this home it's a contest to see how many you can eat. I had 8. Sister Doyle had 12 !!! they were so good. The record is 19. It was Fun!  Any way Rich is excited to be baptized he knows that all of this is true and he calls the warm feeling that the spirit gives "warm fuzzies!" He is still going strong on no tobacco. He also makes some of the best cup cakes I have ever had!  Right now in my reading I am in Alma the chapters of missionary work.  These chapters have a new light to them! I read chapter 29 today.  It's where Alma says "O that I were an angel," then later says "I should be content with the things the Lord has allotted unto me!" It got me thinking about where are my desires and how can I alien them to be more in harmony with the Lord. Something I'm thinking about! I love the Lord and everything he does for me he knows how to make me the best person I can be! I know that this gospel is the restored gospel back on the earth today. I know that family's will be together forever, and am thankful to know that. Love you all!

Dear loved ones,
   My week has been great. Our investigator Rich Is doing well. He knows that the things we are teaching him are true! We had the Word of Wisdom lesson with him and he quit chewing tobacco! He did it cold turkey! the last few days have been a little hard for him, but he is doing great. We give him all the love and support he needs and then some!
   We are still on the lookout for people to teach. We have a lesson with a potential investigator on Tuesday, his name is Eric and he's a firefighter.  He has talked to missionary's before and asked for a book of Mormon. We called him up and he said he would like to learn more. We pray that it goes wellWe have many of the members coming out with us to lessons. It is so nice when members are there!
    Something I have been learning about in my personal study's is diligence there is a lot you can learn. I love the definition in preach my gospel. Diligence is steady, consistent, earnest, and energetic effort in doing the Lord's work. I really like the energetic part! That part put a new light on diligence for me. Preach my gospel also  says when you are diligent, you find joy and satisfaction in your work. There are so many things I am learning and I am loving every second even the hard times. love you all!

Big Joker

This week has been great. I'm starting to know the area better, and the members are great, there's a family that I just love. The first time I met them the dad scared me so bad!!! It was a funny joke, and he had my hart racing. He acted like this guy that just got out of prison and he was asking me all these questions with a straight face and randomly ask me if I was nervous. After he asked me if I was nervous, I got nervous and was wondering what was going on. But right before we went in to meet them, Sister Doyle told me that the dad was a little different. She was in on the joke, but I took it like a champ and laugh it off!  They have a daughter serving in the Philippines, and one getting ready to go to Mexico. The family is great and me and the father have the same birthday.  It's cool!

So Rich, the guy we are teaching, is so awesome he just wants to learn all he can. Every lesson so far has been good.  I know that the spirit has been there every time and he is always so willing to do whatever we invite him to do. He came to church on Sunday and stayed the whole time. I am so thankful to be with Sister Doyle she is a great teacher and I am learning so much from her. She loves to teach and is teaching me how to be a better teacher. We had a zone meeting and got some training on how to find the essential doctrines that we teach and teach it. Also to ask inspired questions to help them learn themselves. The Lord is blessing us every day and gives us lot of opportunities to Learn and grow! I love this Mission and everything about it. Love you all and Pray for you!

Media Referral


Happy Labor day! The new area is great! We got a media referral this week. This guy, Rich, had been talking to some missionary's in Missouri and had move out here, and wanted to keep on with the discussions. We will be teaching him tonight! I'm glad to have Sister Doyle as my companion. She is so great and I just love her. She is the queen of puns. It makes me laugh! Also  she has a great testimony and loves sharing it with people and you can tell that she loves the people here! I am already learning so much from her. Heavenly Father know who needs to be in our life and when to help us grow and learn! The last few days I have been studying a Christ like attribute, the attribute of diligence. There's a great quote in Preach My Gospel, on pg. 121 it's a good one! There is so much great stuff in there even if you're not a missionary! We are so blessed to have the gospel and to have a living prophet of God back on the earth today, to help us learn and grow so that we can be the people God needs us to be! love you all!
