This week has been full of Miracles. We

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

We will be staying in Cordata Park. I am so grateful to see the Lords

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

Sister McGarry III
Sorry its late... this is my 4th of July outfit. Red, White and Blue. I love the USA!!
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.
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.
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
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!!!
