These past nine months of my mission have
been so good. I have learned a lot from President and Sister Tew. We
will be getting a new mission president this week. I am so grateful
for this time I have to serve the Lord. I have learned do much from
President and Sister Tew and I am excited to learn from the new mission
president. I am looking forward these next few months where I can learn
and grow more in the Gospel. I am looking forward to the things that I
This week has been so full of
miracles. I know that the Lord is mindful of us and that loves us. I
love you all and hope that you all have a great week.
On the first Thursday
of the transfer (a transfer is a six week period). Sister Tew came out
with us to work and we were able to contact a part member family and set
a time that we could come back and teach them. We taught them on Monday
night last week, but they are going out of town for three weeks and
don't know when the will be back so we couldn't pick up the wife as a
I saw a miracle this week. I have gained a
testimony of talking to every one. Sister Cotrim and I were walking out
of a dinner appointment on the way to our car when we saw a group of
people a short distance away from us. We walked towards them and started
talking to one of them about God. He told us that was raised Catholic
but now he is Jewish and that he doesn't want to change. Siser Cotrim
then proceeded to invite him to come to church with us on Sunday.
He asked us about church and when we told him that people have topics
of the gospel that the talk about mixed with their personal experiences
he got excited and told us that he would come to church. He said that he
would come to church this upcoming Sunday. I love you all and hope that you have a great week.

Sister Tew, Sister Cotrim and me
Sister Cotrim and me after a training we had on Friday.
So last week in my email I mentioned that I
would be training a new missionary. So my new companion is Sister
Cotrim. She is from Brazil. She served for two months in Brazil while
waiting for her visa to come to America. She is still learning English. I
am so happy to be her trainer. She is amazing. Her testimony of the
Gospel is so strong. I can feel the spirit everytime that she talks. We
have had a great week together. She loves the people. We were able to
see miracles. One of the was that we found a new investigator. We are
now teaching four people.
We also had Sister Tew come out with us on Thursday
and we went by some Part-member families and were able to set return
appointments with them. I know that as we do all that we can that the
Lord will bless us and that he will help us find those that are prepare
to recieve His Gospel. I finished reading the Ricarddi Letter this week
and in there I learned just how much the Lord loves us. He knows where
His children and He knows when they will be ready to hear His Gospel. I
love serving the Lord. I know that he is mindful of us all. He will be a
guide to us in our lives. I am so happy to be in the field serving the
Lord with all my Heart, Might, Mind and Strength. Love you all and
Hope that you have a great week.
Another transfer has come to an end and a
new chapter of my mission is about to begin. I have had a wonderful
transfer with Sister Po'uliva'ati. I have learned so much from her and I
am sad to see her leave, but there is work for her to do back home.
This week the Stake had a Jubilee for their 50th Anniversary. We had a mission Conference on saturday
where we heard from Elder Gay and Elder Gant. I learned for each of
them. I learned at this conference the important of not only teaching by
the spirit but also listening by the spirit. There is no way that we
can know the hearts or thought of every one we meet, but God knows their
thoughts and their hearts. As we listen by the spirit we will know how
to help those that we come in contact with.
I will be staying
in Cordata Park. I don't know who my companion is yet. I will find out
who she is tomorrow when I go to the mission office to pick her up. This
means that I will be training a new missionary next transfer. I am
excited to train, but I am also worried about it too. But I know that as
I rely on the Lord to help me that I have no need to worry. He knows
what I can handle and I will be able to accomplish anything with His
I love you all and hope that you have a great week.
