Guess who LOVES being a missionary? MEEE!

Guess who LOVES being a missionary? MEEE!
It's so great. And this week was great. So, you know how we've been struggling? Well this week Heavenly Father poured out blessings upon us.
It started with the meal calendar being FILLED for the week. And then for three days in a row, some members fed us lunch. We were happy campers. I love this ward and these members with all of my little heart! And not just because they feed us.

On a more serious note: Sister P's mom sent us a box full of treats. Can you say #Blessed.
And on an even more serious note: SISTER'S CONFERENCE!!
The theme this time around was a quote by President Monson:
"Be of Good Cheer. The Future is Bright as your Faith."
The Spirit was powerful and touched my heart. Don't you just love the Gospel? The Gospel of Jesus Christ means everything to me! We went through sisters conference talking about our pre-mortal life, our present moment/journey, and facing our futures with Faith. The most powerful moments for me were when we talked about how the Atonement of Jesus Christ can help us through our journey in life and the journey of a mission. The sisters who gave the lesson discussed two ways we can more fully utilize Christ's atonement.
  1. Trust Him
  2. Know Him 
If we Know who Jesus Christ is and have a sense of His character, we can come unto Him with greater faith that He will answer our prayers because of WHO He is. He loves us and WANTS to help and bless us.
Sisters conference was so great! I loved getting to see my friends! And I loved seeing President and Sister Woodbury. They are A+ people.

  • We were able to pass out some cards this week! HOLLA. Sister P is a Boss missionary. She's so great and so strong. I love her so much! 
  • Dinner with sister Pski was A+. She's so sassy and teases me all the time. I ❤️ her. 
  • We had lunch with Allie twice this week!! I LOVE her. Haha she bought this wolf hat/scarf thing and we took pictures with it on. ❤👍🏾
  • M and G gave us milk and cereal for the week! They're so cute! And their baby is the cutest little boy ever. I wish I was as cool as that little baby. I love them! 
  • We had dinner/Family home evening with the K's on Monday. I LOVE them!! They're so funny. And they made sweet pork roast with rice and sweet potatoes. MMMM. 
  • On Wednesday, K officially dropped us. We were going to have a "counter-drop" lesson with him at the O's (a recent couple that moved into the ward), but he called 5 minutes before the appointment and canceled, officially saying "No." But we went to the O's anyways and talked and visited with them for about an hour. They are a POWER couple. All their kids are moved away and have families. And they told us stories about missionary work and about their family. It was the best. Sister O shared two really sweet stories that I needed to hear that day. The Spirit was so strong. Anyways, she is also an artist!! She's amazing! She let us look at her portfolio and then gave us two prints of a pastel portrait she did of Mary and Jesus. She used her daughter and grandson as the models. It's beautiful! I'm sending one home. 
  • Dinner with sister B was also A+. For dessert she gave us "Mochi" ice cream. Have y'all heard of that or had it? It's sweet rice dough wrapped around ice cream. She got it from trader joes. Y'all should try it cause it's DOPE.  Get the chocolate kind. Anyways, I absolutely adore her. ❤❤️ She always gives us the biggest hugs. 

Serving a mission is the absolute best. I feel so at peace all the time. I know that God is in charge and that with His help, we can do all things!

At the end of sisters conference we sang "I Know that my Redeemer Lives." By the second half of verse 2, I couldn't really sing because I had snot coming out of my nose and tears rolling down my cheeks. But I was singing it in my heart. I KNOW that Jesus Christ is my Redeemer and my Savior, and that He lives. He is near. And that is why I am here: To share that testimony and knowledge with others. I want to do better with that this week.
