I'm kind of like you this week I don't remember very much of the week when I sat down to write! Thank you for the letters they help lots! I know that the Lord is watching out for me and gives me the strength to do what he asks me to do. (1 Nephi 3:7) Love you lots!

This is sister Lovin from the Ocean view ward in Huntington Beach Ca. We have had your wonderful daughter in our home several times and tonight had the opportunity to have her and her companion over for dinner. She is doing so well. She loves the gospel and even more the joys of missionary work. She always shares beautiful scriptures with us and her testimony illuminates her as she reads and shares. You should know she is happy and well. Thank you for sharing her with us.

Love Changes People


Hey,

This week has been a good week! We are out there with the people and knocking doors, and letting the members know that we are excited to be here and are loving the work. We are meeting with a lady named Katie tomorrow (she has a young family) to talk about the gospel. She just moved into the ward boundaries. Some Elders had meet with her before and now we get to teach her! There is another lady that we are starting to teach, named Cara. She is so great. I like her a lot. She feels that she has been prepared to hear what we have to say. She wants to have a relationship with God. I pray that we can help her feel of the spirit. I know the gospel can bless her and her family.

I am learning and remembering how love is so powerful. I am starting to see that some of the best member missionaries are the ones that love those around them! They share the gospel with them because they love them and want them to have the most happiness they can have. even when their friends do not except it, their friends know it's because they care for them and want the best for them. 

Riding a bike is fine I just wear leggings. I did have a crash the first week in the field and have a nice scar.

We love people in to this gospel. Love has great power. President Thomas S. Monson said many times "True love can alter human lives and change human nature."  I have seen it in my life time and time again I know my life has been changed for the better because there are many people in this world that love me. Also I have a Father In Heaven that loves me and help me change each day! I love this gospel and am love'n the people.

Love you lots!!!!

Ocean View Ward Members sent a picture text.



Sister Henderson and Sister Doyle--they served in same MTC district and are now companions in the Ocean View Ward. We love them!  We took them out to dinner tonight but tell them to call when they don't have dinners. We have had missionaries in the field and they tell us how to make sure they are getting cared for. We love Elders but it is a special treat having Sisters in the ward.

Rain


Hi, sounds like things keep going on at home. This week has been good, slow but good! Transfers happened last week and both Sister Doyle and I are sticking around! Stef is about to be a missionary! That's so great! There is a girl here that gave her farewell yesterday and she is going to serve in Mexico. Different mission than Stef's, but she will be in the MTC at the same time. Her name is Sister Carr she's great! She came with us to some lessons. It rained for the first time first time since I've been here! That was fun! Something I have been learning is the power that comes from faith, to trust in the Lord that things are fine at home and to know that what I am doing is the best thing I could be doing in my life right now. I know the Lord is right there with us every step we take. He's the one that we can go to without fail. Not once has he yelled at me. He loves us and wants the best for all of us. I also love you and want the best for you. Keep on keeping on!

Conference

Conference was so great I loved every minute of it, we watched it at the church building that was different! I don't know what one was my favorite one they were all good and I came way with something great from every one! this week has been slow but good, I loved Elder Edward Dube's talk to keep looking forward. How faith always looks forward! I thought of Shon when he was saying that! Elder Bednar and Elder Holland's talk were great and different! I also loved Elders Uchtdorf's talk. Come join with us. the whole thing was great. you could and can feel that this is important we need to be a covenant keeping people and now is the time to take what we put what we have learned in to action so that we may become. We need to start now not tomorrow but today there is no better time to start then today!  Today is apart of eternity!!! The Lord needs us and loves us. As we do our best the Lord blesses us and our best become better and better! I know that this is God's church and there is no better thing I could be doing with my life right now then to serve him.  Lots of love. and I really really love you to to!
