Dear Family and Friends,

This past Friday we had Elder Zeballos of the seventy came to speak to us for Zone Conference. It was amazing.  I have had a great week. He gave us a lot of good reminders.

On Sunday in Sacrament meeting there were some great talks on gratitude. There was one that really stood out to me.  The Speaker was talking about how she eventually learned to be grateful for all things including her trials and trying times in life. It reminded  me that I have some many things to be grateful for.  Our Heavenly Father has blessed us with so many blessings it is important that we show our gratitude for the blessings that we have been given. 

I have been reflecting on the blessings that I have.  I am so grateful for the Gospel and for the knowledge that I have. I am grateful for a loving Family who supports me  both my immediate and extended family. I am also very grateful for the many friends that support me too. I know that God wants to hear from us. I know that he loves us. I know that he is watching over us. Love you all.

God's Love Spends

Dear Family and Friends,
It has been one crazy week. We have been very busy. It has been difficult for us to find this week.  I have learn a lot from this week. We  went on exchanges with the STLs (Sister Training Leaders) on Friday/ Saturday. It was so great.  
I have been reading in Alma in the Book of Mormon and I have learned more about diligence as I have read about Alma and the sons of Mosiah. God knows what we need, He knew that diligence was what I needed to study this past week. I have learned that when God asks you to go something he always helps/gives you a way to accomplish what he have asked you to do. I know that the Book of Mormon is true I know that we have a Heavenly Father in heaven who loves us so much. He wants to help us and he wants to bless us. He only wants us to ask. He wants to hear from us. All we need to do is to ask, ask him for help. If you are doing well he still wants to hear from you. Pray is a two-way communication between us and God. I know that he will answer our prayers and that he will help us.

One of the biggest and best things that I have learned is just how much God loves his children.  This week we had someone that we are teaching, who has not missed a day of church since before I came here. This week he didn't come to church and we stopped by his house after dinner and talked to him. As we were talking to him and addressing his concerns and sharing a message with him, I was able to feel of God's love for him. I know that God loves us and that in his time all will find his Gospel. I know that God's loves is sufficient for all and that through the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ we can all  return to the presence of our Father who is in Heaven. Christ is the center of Gods plan. I know that God loves us and that he is there for us when it seems like no one else is. God loves us all and he will help us.

God's Timing

Dear Family and Friends,
I have learned more about God's timing this week. This week the baptismal was changed to another date. We have not set a new date yet but we hope to set one soon. The baptism date has changed because the people that we are teaching needs permission from both parents to be baptized and her father is not very happy about her joining the church. Her mom is a recent convert and is a very strong member of the church. The Lord has a plan for all of us and all prayers will be answered, we just need to wait for his timing for all things. God has a plan for us all. He loves each and every one of us.  
This past week was transfers but my companion and I are together for another transfer. It has been a great week. We have found a few new investigators this week. One things that I have learned is that our time is short.  Our time on earth is very short. It seems like a long time but it is all a small moment. I am so grateful that I have to knowledge of the Gospel in my life. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to return to him. It is because he loves us that he has given us a plan of happiness. I was reading in the Book of Mormon this morning in Alma 12 and I learned more about the plan of happiness. He loves us  because he is truly our loving Heavenly Father.  

God's plan is the best. God knows all and he know what is the best. As we follow in his plan for us and have faith in that plan we will see the blessings that come from it. I know that God's timing is the right timing. We take our trials in life and learn from them. God gives us trials to learn and grow from them. It is our choice whether we want to allow our trials to turn us away from God or if we allow it to bring us closer to him. 

I love you all and hope that all is going well.

Progress and the Lord's Hand

Dear Family and Friends,
It's the end of my first transfer in the mission field.  My companion and I am staying in La Palma from at least on more transfer. Sister Emmert trainer is going home this transfer and so we went to the departure Fireside yesterday. We brought a investigator who we set a baptismal date with her. Her mother was baptized in January. She has friends who are members at school. She also went to an activity called Especially for Youth. She had a lot of fun at the activity. She reads the Book of Mormon every day, comes to church. 
I have learned so much those past few weeks. It is interesting to see how the Lord prepares people to hear his Gospel. I am reading in the Book of Mormon and has just finished Mosiah. As I have read it. This past month I am learning more about how the Lord helps and strengthens his people if they repent. I am also surprised at how the Lord prepares his children to receive his Gospel. The investigator I mentioned earlier has been taught before, but she was not ready to hear the Gospel now she is ready to hear it. It is amazing to see how the Lord's prepares his children. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve the Lord. 
I love you all.
Thanks for supporting me.
