Soon

Hey this is super crazy!!! In a blink of an eye I will be in your arms!!!!!!!!!

I will write next Monday but it will most likely be short.

Oh and by the way, I don't think I will be coming back to California right soon after. I guess she wont be going to the temple any time soon. :(

So this week went so much better! we have seen the Lord in our work many times. This week we have been working with the members a lot more. It's been interesting. Many member have come to us and are asking us how to share the gospel with their friends. We realized that, that is where our focus needs to be, is helping the members be missionaries. This ward has had more people join the church through the members friends. 

I am so thankful for the mission and the things I have been able to learn. It's price is far beyond the price of rubies. I Love you sooooo much and can't wait to see you!

                                                                                                              
Till we meet again!!!

Mud Slide

Hello there! 
   This week has been hard. we have had to drop some investigators and some even dropped us. :( but on the bright side, now we have more time to find those that are ready for the gospel. lately I feel like my head is in a cloud. it seems to be the biggest fight of my life to get going and be motivated. it seems like I am running up a muddy hill with all my might and get half way up and slip back down again. I'm really tired and full of mixed emotions. one of the high lights was talking to Dad. It was nice! I don't want you to think that I'm done with my mission because I'm not! I love being a missionary and I love this work I'm just torn in between two places I love. I'm trying to take it one day at a time and love where I'm at while I'm still here. It has just been a hard week. 
    On the bright side, on Sunday it was the primary program. It was so cute! there was also a family that got confirmed that same day in our ward that the Elders taught! everyone is seeing miracles in the mission. it's so great to hear about! I know this is God's work and it is through him this work is done!
      Love you lot's!!!

Parade


            Hey this week has been good! We were able to see Ronnette many times this week! It was really great. she wants to learns and is so ready. We gave her the Book of Mormon and she was so excited to read it! We talked to her about the atonement and the power it has to help us through our struggles. She loved it a lot. Hey have you got snow yet? This week sister Oler got sick so we were in for one of the days, and another day we got to help out with a parade and I got some sun that day! 
            So coming back to California seems to be up in the air. The member that is going through the temple has not figured out the date yet. I would hope it would be some time in the first two weeks of me being home. I'll try really hard to find out by next week. Maybe the 14th of Dec? you can set up speaking for whenever. She knows that I might not be able to come, but that I will try. 
             I love you all so much and am thankful to have you in my life. Talk to you soon!

Listening to the Spirit


Hey sounds like things haven't stopped moving!  
I don't really remember what happened this week we had three exchanges and everyday just blends together. one of the exchanges was with sister young!!!! It was fun to be back with her for a day.  so here is a story for you I was on a exchange with sister Dunston and we were on bikes in a housing track. and as missionaries we are to talk with everyone. so we were biking along and we passed this man that was painting a house and the thought came- you need to talk with that man and ignored it. It's still hard for me to talk with everyone. so we kept biking and went to the next place we were planning on going. sister Dunston and I were in my area and I'm still finding my way around. so somehow we ended up back by the man painting the house and the thought came again as we were passing him. as we went passed I said Hello. and passed him. after we passed I knew we needed to go back. so I stopped and told sister Dunston we needed to go back. so we did and talked to him. he had broken English but knew enough to talk for a second. he had questions about the church and wants to know more! It was so amazing how small and simple the spirit speaks to you but how great the results are when we follow them, and how God will give us opportunities to prove ourselves after we mess up! he wants his children to come and continues to mark the path. I miss you all so much and can't wait to see you! I love where I'm at and I love this gospel!

Hey, Shayla


          Hey SHAYLA -- WHATTTTTT! THAT IS SO COOL! I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO GO FOREIGN!!!! THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! I get to see you before you go. This is a happy day!!!! 
          Well my week wasn't as exciting.  This week was busy but didn't feel to productive. The new area is great, a little slow but a good area, and I love my new companion! Sister Oler is so much fun. Sister Pendleton stayed in Whittier. The work is kind of slow at the moment but this will change here soon. This is the Lord's work, things are always happening. 
          So this week my thoughts have been geared toward charity. Something the Lord is teaching me that I need to go deeper. 
          We already started to do exchanges. It was fun. I went with a sister that I came out with. It was fun to catch up. On the exchange we were biking a lot. It was nice at the first part of the day.  We meet this lady, she had just come out of her door and we started talking with her. She told us that she and her family needed God more in their life's.  We told her that our message would help her and her family come closer to God and come closer as a family. We were able to set up a time to come back and were able to say a prayer with her and some of her kids. It was a good way to start the day. The sisters are going to be able to teach this family!   
          That is the biggest highlight of the week. It's crazy how the weeks go faster and faster. I love the people here and I am so blessed that I get to be here serving them! I love you all so much.  Talk to you next week!

Transfer

Hey! This week has been crazy!!!! I am being transferred to Cypress for the next and  last 7 weeks!! My new companion's name is Sister Oler! I am so exited she is amazing! I am still a Sister Training Leader but just in a different area. Some weird events happened to lead up to me getting transferred for my last transfer. But I'm excited. It felt right. So, regarding my coming home, I got my flight plans this last week. I will be flying in to Pocatello at 11:40 am on Dec. 2nd. Please bring a coat I will be freezing!  It's weird to think that this adventure is almost over! But when one adventure ends another begins. 
            So Katherine came to church last Sunday and stayed the whole time! She also brought her kids, Calvin and Peril.  They are so fun and they all loved church!!! It was sad to say bye to them. But they are in good hands and hopefully Katherine will get baptized on Nov 16. The work is moving on and I am so thankful for the time I had in this area. There has been so much growth that happened in this last 2 months. The Lord has taught me more about how I need to continually rely on him and the blessings of being obedient! I love that we get to learn every day. I love this great work! Thank you for everything you do and will do!

Baptism and Conference

          Hey, conference was super great. we got to see all sessions. the baptism went well. Also the training on obedience. the training gave me a lot of stress I wanted it to go well. but all is well that ends! ( Shon ) 
          I am sad to heir about Margie Carlyle I love her so much she has always been a great example to me! 
          I had no Idea that Kinsey was even dating any one!  I guess that's what happens when you go on a missionI realize that Pocatello and home is a different place than how I left it. so ya. This is the last week in this transfer so by Monday we will know who stays and how goes. My guess is that I will be staying put and the other two will go. Sister Pendleton has been in this area for 9 months now. It's crazy to think that I have one more transfer before I'm done. It doesn't seem real. I feel like this is what my life has always consisted of. 
          Hey so I asked about if you would be okay if I came back to California not to soon after I get home what are your thoughts about that? It also depends on when Shayla takes off. But I would love to hear an opinion on this.
          Also I need to register for school soon, I forgot the paper that I had with the classes I was hoping to take so I'll just send it in the mail. also I sent a package home did you get it?
          Thanks for all the love and support! love you!!!

Eating it up!

          Well Hello!!! Things this week has been going really well here in this neck of the woods! The people we have been blessed to teach are eating up the gospel. Especially the book of Mormon!!! Mark is getting baptized this Sunday the 5th at 5pm! I have never seen a more prepared person in my life! He told us that he feels like he is finally finishing his journey! Mark studies so much on his own, so when we meet with him it's more of a review then anything!
          So this week we had many meetings which were really good! I loved the women's conference. It was so good! One thing I am looking forward to is when I can do more family history work!
          Congratulations to Jaymon!!!!! That is so exciting. This is a choice you will never regret! I know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ restored back to the earth at this time through the prophet Joseph Smith! Because of this, we can be with our families together forever, and have the peace to know that as we are obedient to Gods counsel we can return and live with him again!
          So, this up-coming week, the mission's president's wife, Sister Tew, asked Sister Pendleton and me and some other sisters to give trainings (short 10-15 min. lessons with commitments at the end). Mine is on being "Exactly Obedient!" At first I was thinking that my topic was not so fun! This topic has been pounded in to our heads so much that as soon as some hear what the topic is they tune out. But now I am really excited to give it. I have been thinking about it a lot since Friday. I am going to try it at a different view. The process it took to know how to teach this has been one of the best experiences ever. I have been keeping the Lord in the process the whole time because I want them to learn what the Lord wants them to know and apply and not what I want them to know. As I have done this, so much inspiration has come. The main scripture is based on Hymn 270  I will go where you want me to go!
          I am so thankful and blessed that I have all of you in my life, and Shayla now you are truly a squirrel!!! HaHa! ;)

The Miracles of God

I just want to First say I love you!  This week went super well. We have been finding like crazy. This transfer has been full good things! We meet this man named Mark, about a month ago that was interested in knowing about the gospel. But lived in a different ward boundaries, so we had to pass him off. Missionaries were in touch with him here and there but his wife didn't like them coming over at all.  She made one of the Elders cry! So they lost contact for a little bit then two weeks ago he showed up to their church and told them he wanted to get baptized and knew the Book of Mormon is true. Joseph Smith is a true Prophet. He is ready to do whatever it takes to join. He just moved into our ward boundaries so now we get to teach him! He is one amazing person who is hungry for truth! We have been finding many that have the true intent to know. Like this lady Kathren when on exchanges. My companions found her and she is already in the second book of Nephi, in the Book of Mormon. The weeks have been full of miracles and wonder.
Today we got to go to the temple. It just gave more strength. I love the temple so much.
I love you so much. Keep seeking the Lord in all you do and look for a tender mercy each day. This is one great way to build your faith!
