Mission Scripture

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.

D&C 68:6

Hi Everyone

hi everyone... how are you all? mom and dad i want to wish you a happy bday and if you haven't opened the box yet then how about mer can you open it and tape shut the little present in there? i finished it in line at the post office and didn't have time. sorry the box isnt full of gifts mom and dad, so dont get your hopes up. i'm not sure when the next time you send stuff to me will be but when you do will you send another journal? no rush, but i think i'll just need 1 more for the rest of my mission. thanks. i had a sick week but i'm feeling better now and i'm glad the elders left some robutussin in the apartment cause i had to drink a lot of it. we have this fam in our ward the Beck's, they are taking us the everglades today and i think i'll see a million alligators! i'm excited and scared!! their mom and 2 daughters came out iwth us a few days ago so it was great we were able to each have an exchange and get 3 times the work done! i met this lady named Joy when I was with Becken (who is prepping to go on a mish) and we did a soft baptism date with her. I hope we can meet with her this week and that she'll progress. During my PPI President Hale made me senior companion for the rest of the transfer and a few other changes that should be helping our companionship. He suggested for me to go to BYU-Idaho but I'm praying about it and haven't really gotten an answer. Any ideas on how I can more clearly recieve answers to my prayers? He suggested I talk to Sister Hale about it and I plan on doing that this week. Okay something people do in this area nobody has done before is not call us the sister missionaries.. they call us the lady missionaries. it is so funny and i still laugh when they do it. isnt that horrible what happened in hati? I dont know too much about it but i know its bad. as a mission we fasted on sat/sun for them. i have met some sweet hatian people and i love them. we got to help pack boxes of food and clothes to send down there yesterday. my comps have both been sick this week and sleeping a lot so i've had to be self-productive in order to move the work along. it's been challenging at times for me but I've had the Lord's help. we saw robert green, the hobo, get off a bus the other day when we were driving to a potential's house and pulled over and got to teach him. he was complaining that he wants to read the Book of Momron but it's too small. i happened to have this little magifiying glass in my bag that mom had sent me and gave it to him. he was so thrilled and happy to be able to read. (but mom, i dont need another one. thanks though). it was neat to be able to help him out! thanks mom! can someone add my new friends on facebook? during my MRI i know this sounds impossible but i fell asleep.. i was so tired.. that machine was making a whole lot of racket but it was a fri night and i was out within 5 minutes (it lasted like 30), sister brady who took me is soo cute and i love her, mom you should have her number cause she called fri night after the MRI and fell free to text her anytime she says. i got a CD with the pictures on it and i look at it with sister boix on saturday. it was very interesrting to see my brain and now i know how large it is. sister brady and i got to share the gospel with her friend pilar. pilar babysat her kids while we went to my MRI. Pialr is going to come to church next sunday. yay!! the elders had a family of 4 get baptized on satudaya and confirmed sunday and their baby blessed sunday too! the family was a member referral from the stake president. it was really cool for them, and the family was counting down week, days, and hours til they could be baptized! my friend adi and i gave geogre ( the man who listened to MoTab) a BOM on sat and hiome he will accept the elders to come and teach him. we had a cool lesson with michael and he told us how the Book of Mormon is like going into a candy shop and if he could choose any candy there, he'd choose the Best kind. and the book of mormon is the best kind-thats what he said! we really want him to come to church so he can progress but he needs court permission first. also on sat sister eland tried calling the number of a potential. but it was a wrong numebr and someone naswered who was at a park. the person said we could come teach him at the park so we went there and met this guy named brandon who is 22. it was kind of a crazy thing to do but will do crazy things to share this gospel with everyone. i hope you all have a good week and that you are happy and well. i love you so much. thanks for all your love and support. take care. xoxo
