" Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down. It is resisting the impulse to become offended easily.It is accepting weaknesses and shortcomings. It is accepting people as they truly are. it is looking beyond physical appearances to attributes that will not dim through time. It is resisting the Impulse to categorize others"
This week i have realized the true meaning of charity, as a missionary every time i look at people i see them as children of God and i automatically love them. This coming up Saturday we will be having a baptism. We are very excited to see this woman be transformed into a different woman. She is letting the Savior work through her.
Being on Mission has really opened my eyes on the important things in life and that is to not only know the Gospel but Live the Gospel. Heavenly father has so much faith in all of his children and he sees a lot of potential it takes our action to see our own potential and live up to it. I know that the book or Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ our loving Savior.
This week i was pondering about how there will always be a less day on the mission but more days to be missionary. the Lord is preparing to be a missionary back home and to help his vineyard grow.

Some blessings come soon,and some come late, and some don't come till heaven

Well so far this week has been amazing. We have been teaching a lot of wonderful people. WE hope and pray that in 2 weeks one of our investigators will be baptized she is an amazing woman. She is about 40 and she is native. When i met this woman me and my companion were truly led to her and she recognized that. When we taught her about Joseph smith her eyes filled with tears and she told us that she knew this was true. Many people here have a difficult problem believing that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that he was truly chosen to restore this wonderful marvelous gospel, But this woman knew right off the bat that this was true. She has been coming to church on Sundays, to see some one change their lives and make the decision to follow Jesus Christ their savior is a blessing. I'm grateful to be on this mission to see that change in  people.
This week i was watching a Mormon video with my companion and i felt the spirit so strong as Jeffery R Holland stated " Some blessings come soon,and some come late, and some don't come till heaven"  We all in some point in our lives, go through struggles and much afflictions but to know that our heavenly father is willing to bless us and he will if we go to him in prayer, and to understand that he is mindful of us. We have to have faith that we will be blessed in his timing not our timing. Blessings will come to our families and friends but we must be patient and we need to have that knowledge that some blessing wont come until heaven.
Being on a mission and making the decision to be the Lords servant has been a blessing to me. i have learned. I view life differently, i see others differently but the most incredible blessing on the mission is to see heavenly fathers children come closer to him through the power of the atonement.I know that this church is true and that is why I'm on my mission to preach the gospel and help others come closer to their loving savior Jesus Christ.
Transfer are coming up in 2 weeks, and there are 9 new sisters coming into the mission its so exciting!

Motherhood isn't a Hobie it is a calling from the Lord


This week has been amazing i had the chance to talk to my mom for mothers days and it was a blessing to be able to hear her voice. Sense it was mothers day last week i learned" motherhood isn't a Hobie it is a calling from the Lord, it is not something you squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for"
I know one day i will be able to be a future mother and i want to be able to teach my children not only how to live the gospel but teach them the doctrine of the gospel so that they can understand the teachings of their savior and Redeemer. I have come to realize the power that mothers have towards their children and I'm oh so very grateful to have 2 beautiful mothers in my life my own mother who is such a strong mother and love me and will do anything for me and a 2nd mother Janell Millyard who cares for me and has taught me so much and how to raise good children in the gospel. I'm so very thankful to have these wonderful mothers in my life.
This week we had the opportunity to continue teaching in Spanish and there are many here in Blanding that me and my companion know we were called to teach them the gospel. This week i have pondered about all heavenly fathers children that we are teaching and i have came to a conclusion if they are not ready to hear this message that it is okay because e we have planted a see of faith in them and that heavenly father has everyone timing, he had my timing and i was able to be taught by those  missionaries and it took many of elders to teach me and my sister and mom. I realized that as a missionary you plant  seeds in people's hearts and you help them come close to their savior Jesus Christ. I'm grateful for this privilege to serve the Lord and be a worthy servant to teach his gospel to his children.

Lord has sent me to this place for a reason

Hello everyone! This week has of course been amazing. We had the opportunity to teach a couple in Spanish. Its amazing to know that the Lord has sent me to this place for a reason Me and My companion are the only Spanish sisters in our mission. Its truly a blessing to be able to have the chance to teach in Spanish and to help heavenly fathers children  receive the restored gospel.
We were going to have a baptism this last Monday but we had to make some changes and we hope and pray that it will happen soon. I know that the Lord has power to do all things, i have seen a mighty change of heart in specific people that we are teaching. Its a blessing to be able to see someone change through their efforts.
This week me and my companion Sister Maynez decided to ride bikes for a day and it was a great idea we met so many people that were walking or doing their yards we were able to bring them a small message to their hearts to ponder about. I have to say riding a bike in a skirt isn't that hard the hard thing about it is getting off the bike. I have truly enjoyed my mission so far, every minute of it.

I have seen miracles here on my mission

Yate everyone!!!
This week has been amazing i have come to realize how much love i have for the scriptures and how much help and guidance they contain. I have seen miracles here on my mission. I have seen people change for the better. This coming up week on May 6th we will be having a baptism.we have been working with this young man for while he is 19. This young man when we met with him he had a lot of questions, but these certain questions were not going to be able to help him grow in the gospel. Several of weeks passed and he finally wanted to meet with us again, as we met with him we shared a Mormon message " You don't know everything but YOU know enough" as he watched this video his eyes filled with tears and he told us that a week ago he wrote down his testimony of the things he knew to be true. As he read his testimony to us i realized that he said " i might not know everything but i know enough to guide me and help me return back to my heavenly father" i know that the spirit prompted us to share that message he realized that he needed to stick to the basics, which is faith in Jesus Christ,repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end. This young man truly knew that once he had faith all of his questions would be answered through the power of prayer and the power of the holy ghost. It is a privilege to see one of heavenly fathers children come to realize that this is the only true church of Jesus Christ.
We also met with a young man about in his late 20's. He is a member but hadn't been to church in years. We met him through our recent convert he had no place to live at and she was kind enough to let him stay at her place. Me and my companion had no idea of this situation, we felt prompted to go to her home and there he was sitting on the couch. I know we were sent to this young man to help him regain his faith in Jesus Christ. That day we had the most sacred and most amazing lesson. The spirit was so strong and he knew he had to change. This young man has been in jail has done almost every drug you can imagine, has been divorced and he said to us " heavenly father must love me for sending you sisters to me" The lord works in mysterious ways he sent our recent convert to meet him and offer him a place to stay at and he sent us to him. This young man has now been attending church and is taking addiction recovery classes and has been reading his Scriptures everyday and night. He has had a mighty change of heart through the power of the atonement. every time we meet with him he tells us " I don't understand i never saw myself reading the scriptures and doing whats right at this point of my life". the very first time we met with him as we were teaching him i saw him in a white shirt and a tie as  a worthy son of god. It truly was the most sacred experience i have ever experienced. I know the lord cares about his children and i know everyone has their timing to realize the love that the savior has for them
I know that i have been sent to this mission for a reason. I love all of the people i teach and i love that i get to be a part of this glorious work. Heavenly father is mindful of all his children. he has sent me to those that need to hear the gospel. I know that if i strive to be an obedient missionary that the Lord will bless me with amazing experiences.
