Cordata Park

Dear Family and Friends,
This week has been full of Miracles. We have been able to see the Lords hand so much in the work. The Lord is truly preparing people to receive his Gospel. We were able to go by Shelly this week and start teaching her. She has been taught by missionaries before, but have not been ready for baptism. She has a desire to be baptized, we will do all that we can to help her to be baptized. 

Debbie is doing well, we will be meeting with her twice a week now, to help her prepare for baptism. She is progressing so much in the Gospel, I can see her desire to change it is amazing.
I am so grateful that I get to be an instrument in God's hand to help his Children to receive his Gospel. 

I have been able to learn how to be patient with the Lord's timing.The Lord knows us and knows where we need to be and whose lives we can touch. We only need to open our mouths and allow His words to be put into our mouths.

Learning in Huntington Beach!!

Dear Family and Friends,
Sister Cotrim and I are staying together.  We will be staying in Cordata Park.  I am so grateful to see the Lords hand in the work. This transfer has a great learing experience for me. I have learned so much about the Gospel. I have seen the Lord working with his children day by day.  I know that he preparing his children to receive his gospel.  I am so happy to continue the work of the Lord in Cordata park. I have learned so much here in this Ward. I have learned more love. I am so grateful for the love that God has given to us. I am excited to learn more as I serve in this wonderful ward.
Debbie is doing well she has excepted the invitation to be baptized on August 27th. Her testimony is growing.
Miracles happen everyday Sister Cotrim has helped me see just how true that is. We every time that we find a new investigator or find someone who tells us we can come back after getting into the car she says "let's pray" So she says a prayer of graditude. We must look for the miracles everyday. They happen, we only need to look for them. I am continually looking for the daily miracles. Love you all and hope that you have a great week.

Change Allows Growth

Dear Family and Friends,
This month as I am sure many of you know, we had the wonderful opportunity to experience a big change in our mission. We got a new mission President. President Patterson is our new mission President. We had the opportunity to meet him last Tuesday. I am excited  for the last few months of my mission.

We were able to see so many miracles this week. On Monday night was just the beginning of miracles for us. The first miracle that we experienced was that we were about to see a less active member who was away for a while with Family business, when we went by we were able to meet with her a teach her. We were also able to see  a Part-member family who has been out of town that last few weeks. Don is an active member and Debbie his wife comes to church with him. They have been coming to sacrament meeting (the main worship service), but have been leaving after that to attend to some family business. They were able to come to all of the church meetings this week.  Brother and Sister McCready are amazing members. They are converts themselves. They helped Debbie feel welcome in church. Yesterday when he had dinner with the McCready's we asked them about inviting Don and Debbie over for a lesson or just provide friendship. Brother McCready then says "we already talked about that" we were then able to set up a time to have Family Home Evening in their home with Don and Debbie.
Another miracle that we were able to see is that we have been able to see a family that the ward council asked us to go by and see a few weeks ago. We stopped by a few times but no one answered the door. We were able to Sister Jensen and set up a time to go by this upcoming week and meet with them. Miracles happen and change is so good.
I am grateful that I have been able to serve that many wonderful people in this area and I am Happy to be the Lord's servant in helping his children to come unto him. I know that the Lord is preparing His children all around us we only need to be bold (like Jacob said) in inviting them to receive the restored Gospel. God is good. He is love. 
Love you all and hope that you have a great week!

Happy 4th og July!!!

Dear Family and Friends,
Happy Independence Day!! This week was amazing. President and Sister Tew went home. They will be greatly missed. But as Jacob said in his email last week President and Sister Patterson have been prepared by the Lord to lead this mission. I have learned so much and am excited to continue learning from President and Sister Patterson. 
We had a zone blitz this week.  Which means that all of the missionaries in the Stake went to the different wards within in the stake to help find. This week we were able to see many miracles. One of which is that we were able to find new investigators. Last month we found some potential investigators who told us to come back at the beginning of next month. We went back last week and they were happy to see us. I know that the Lord is preparing his children to hear His gospel. We only need to find them. I love doing the Lord's work and help his children come unto Him. 
Love you all and Hope that you have a Happy 4th of July!!!
