Newsletter Week 52!

Hey yall! I cannot even believe I have been out for a year now! It has
been the most challenging, rewarding, faith building year of my life.
And I wouldn't trade it for anything! Now I just want to live every
last minute of my last 6 months to the fullest!
Thank you all for the birthday emails, cards and packages! I felt all
of your love so much:) I really had a great birthday:) we went out to
mods pizza with my distinct.. Which was delicious! And then we went
and I ate more cake than I have ever eaten in my life. Haha and of
course as Hispanic culture requires I got my face smashed in it too..
Haha:) i love my mission so much! The people here are the sweetest,
kindest, most thoughtful people in the world.
We are working with Miriam and Belzazar to go to the temple! They both
have their recommends and now we are getting family names! I love this
work so much!
I just want to bear my testimony about the importance of the
sacrament. This week I really had my eyes opened, sometimes I find
myself getting too casual in taking of the bread and the water that I
forget what I am really doing. I am so grateful for the sacrifice
Jesus Christ made for us, the bread representing his bruised body and
broken heart and the water representing the blooded shed for each of
his. He loves us so much and the sacrament has such beautiful sacred
symbolism. I hope that we can always remember that it is way more than
a piece of bread and cup of water we are partaking of. I love you all
so much! Have a great week!
Invitation: there is an incredible video about the sacrament called
Always Remember Him (5:37) where Jeffrey R. Holland helps us
understand the significance of the sacrament, I invite you all to
watch it. It would make a great FHE message:)

Newsletter Week 51

Hey Y'all!
How has it been! This week we pretty darn good:)
Hermana Bowman killed it at 8 week follow-up! I am so proud of her:) I
can't believe we are already half way through the second transfer of
training.. I swear she is like training me now:) she is incredible:)
This week we got to go to temple tours with some of our favorite
people:) pictures are attached.
This week we had an awesome miracle going to visit a less
active/recent convert!
She disappeared soon after she was baptized and missionaries haven't
been able to find her since. Since I've been in the area, we have
stopped by her house while we have been in the area, never to have any
reply. This week Hermana Bowman said she wanted to go try by her house
again, I honestly felt a little reluctant, because I thought "I know
she won't answer.. she never does" but we went along with the faith
Hermana Bowman had and went. In the prayer we said before we left the
car, we asked the Lord to give us the faith to be able to find her
there. We got out of our car, walked over to her house and found her
out on her porch!!! It was really faith building to see what the lord
can do when you have just a little faith.. She has been missing for
like 9 months, but the Lord helped us find her:)
Thank you all so so so so much for all the love and support you have
sent me this past week.. I have felt more than blessed! I love my
mission so much! There is no where I rather be:) I love you all so
much and hope y'all have a great week:)
