I have finished another
transfer in the mission field, I can honestly say I feel like I just got
here. I am staying in Pleasant View with my companion Sister Gardner.
Sister Nuon is going Long Beach where she can speak Cambodian. It has
been so fun serving around her. I am excited for a new adventure to
here in Huntington Beach. My companions and I had a baptism occur this
week. It was so amazing to see his life change as he worked to ward his
baptism and then to enter into the waters of baptism and follow the
example that our Savior Jesus Christ did. I love being a missionary and
watching the spirit change peoples lives. It is so amazing. I know that
Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and that he will be there to help us
when we need Him. I know that it is through the Atonement of Jesus
Christ that we can be cleansed from our sins and that we can return to
our Heavenly Father again. I know that the Holy Ghost is there to
comfort and to guide us. Love you all.
I have had a wonderful week. I have learned a lot. We have a baptism coming up this week on Saturday.
I have watched our investigator grow in the gospel. It has been a
really great to help to prepare him for Baptism. I know that this is the
work of the Lord and that He is will help us in His work. I know that the Lord will help us find those that are prepared to hear His gospel.
we had a miracle happen. We were in an area to see a potential that we had
an appointment scheduled with. On the way we started talking to a young
man about the gospel and sharing with him the Book of Mormon, when a
lady walked up and began to ask us questions. At first we thought that
she was interested, because of the questions that she was asking we soon
learned that she was not interested. The young man which we met was
talking to his friend about how he wanted to read the Book of Mormon and
also The Restoration pamphlet that we gave to him (while that lady was
still talking to us). We eventually had to walk away from her. We
were talking about the young man and how interested he had been in
learning to Gospel, when we saw him walking towards us with his friend.
We were able to teach him and pick him up as a new investigator. It was
After this experience I learned that the Lord will
but into your path the people who are ready to hear the Gospel. I know
that He is here to help us in the work and that He will bless and help
us as we share His Gospel. Love you all and hope that you are all well.
Have great week!!!
This week has been kind of a slow week for
the work. Sister Gardner and I have had the privilege of having Sister
Nuon from the Temple Square Mission with us for the week. She is amazing
and i am so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to learn
from her as well as to learn form Sister Gardner. This week we also went
on Exxhanges with the STL's one of which is my trainer Sister Emmert. I
got the opportunity to be on Exchanges with her. Exchanges were so
This week being in a trio has been a great learning
experience for me I have learned different ways of contacting. This week
flown by so quickly but it has been a week of miracles. This week we
were able to meet with some investigators that we have not been at to
meet with the past few weeks, that was a miracle. I know that God has a
plan for us and that he loves each and every one of us. I know that he
mindful of us and of our trials and struggles. I know that he loves us
and that he will be there to help left and guide us through. We simple
need to ASK for his help. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know
that President Thomas S. Monson is the prophet here on earth today.
Love you all
I has been a crazy New Year, but I has
also been great. Sister Gardner and I are in a trio with Sister Nuon
from temple square for a about a week or so now. President is trying to
find her a companion from the Cambodian ward in Long Beach. We picked
her up yesterday from the mission office. It has been a great New Year.
The three of us are getting the whole ward to work in for right now. It
has been super fun. We are working with some investigators. We have been
working with getting our investigators to come to church. I am so
grateful for the Atonement. I am seeing how the Atonement works in the
lives of those around me. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and
that he knows how we feel and that he can help us. I know that Jesus
Christ loves us and that he will help us. All that we need to do is Ask
him and we shall receive. Asking is simple, he will not be mad for us
turning to him in times of distress or sorrow. He will help us though
the sorrow and distress. Love you all.
