Happy Easter! and Happy Spring

This week was wonderful! We had SO many miracles.

Oscar: while we were at McDonald's, we had the impression to speak
with him. He is from Guatemala. He has seen a lot of missionaries
there so he knew who we were. Some of his family members are
Latter-day Saints too!
We were able to show him the Easter video and had a great conversation
about Jesus Christ. It was AWESOME. We gave him a pass-along card with
our number on it. He wasn't too interested in meeting again but at
least he has our number.

Marge: while we were at Walmart we began to talk with her. She's such
a cute old lady. We talked about the weather which led into where
we're from and why we are here. We asked to show her the Easter video
and she stiffened a little and then expressed that she was a Jehovah's
Witness. We asked if we could give her a card anyways, but ended up
just showing her the video. It was really sweet to see the difference
in her before and after she saw the video. Afterwards she kept saying
"wow" over and over again. Her face and tone had totally changed. Her
heart was softened. She then asked if there was a church nearby. We
wrote down the address on a card along with our number.

Two people at FMSC: I can't remember their names because when they
told me, the music was blaring. But I was labeling bags with them at
this food bank thing. We talked for an hour and a half about
missionaries, the church, modern-day prophets, life-lessons,
companions, jobs, etc. It was AMAZING. I felt the spirit so strong
towards the end of the session and our conversation. She told me how
her husband left her and her kids, but she still had to go and work
and that she learned that it's through turning outwards and serving
others that we find peace in life. It was an amazing conversation and
I feel very blessed that I was able to meet her and her son and talk
with them.

I think her name is Mary: on exchanges this past Tuesday, sister
Trowbridge and I were talking to a woman in Goodwill. She had recently
moved from Texas. There, she did a lot of service at a food bank. She
had seen missionaries there and was impressed with them. We gave her
an Easter card and had an awesome conversation with her.

Llamar: He was baptized a year ago, and since then no one has been
able to get in contact with him. On Saturday sister Plomgren had a
prompting to go and visit him. We did and he was HOME!! We showed him
the Easter video and invited him to come back to church. It was

I loved this week.
We worked really hard. Doing so makes me happy.

This is the week of Easter!!
The week where we commemorate that Jesus Christ broke the bands of
death and our sorrows and trials.

"Each of us will have our own Fridays--those days when the universe
itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about
us in pieces. We all will experience those broken times when it seems
we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays.
But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered
death--Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will
come." - Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that by His own power, His body
and Spirit were reunited for eternity. I know that if we follow Him
our souls can be comforted and our hearts can be filled. We can be
made whole. I know that He is my Savior.

I hope y'all have a great week!
Also, funny story: we were at a dinner appointment this week and they
asked how to say my name. I told them and the dad said, "oh yeah!
Cause the two L's make a Y. Like quesadilla!" Hahahahha.
