I just want to thank all of you for all the support and the love that I receive from you all. Thank you and I love you all very much!
Okay so the things happening as a missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission…
My companion and I are kind of in a hole right now. None of our investigators are progressing! We have a lot of investigators too. But we had a comp. study with the Zone Leaders and our District Leader and his companion yesterday and they gave us some really good advice and suggestions. So hopefully we can put that into play and I’ll report back next week. 🙂
We did a Zone Blitz on Saturday. A zone blitz is when all the missionaries in the zone go and tract a center area. We blitzed the other Sister’s area and it was a lot of fun! We also switched companions too. So my new companion was Sister Garrett and during this we taught two lessons. We taught the plan of salvation to a 16 year old boy and the lesson went really well. I LOVE teaching. I get soo happy from teaching.
Also we had a church dedication. The church that the Buena Ventura Ward were in before was under construction because the church was being refurbished. So now it’s all ready to go and we move into the new church on the 22nd! I’m soo excited!! That building is maybe the most beautiful church building that I ever been in. There’s a tower in there and a painting of Jesus Christ and it’s very very pretty! I’m excited to start going there and the best thing is…it’s soo much closer to our apartment than the church that we are going to now. Also as you walk out of the church you can see Captain Moroni on the Ogden Temple. So beautiful! So there was an open house for the church on Sunday and so my companion and I were there with 4 other Elders talking to people. Sister Elaine S. Dalton was also there again for the dedication. I love her! The dedication was a very special event and the prayer that was said was very nice.
On Sunday for our companion study, my companion and I watch videos of the church…of course…we can’t watch anything else. haha. So we watched “Together Forever.” I thought that it would be pretty corny to tell you the truth but it wasn’t! Well some parts (acting wise but we just look past those parts 😉 ) but it was really relevant to the things happening in today’s world. But I love all the stories but the one that really hits me the most is the last story of when the family loses their oldest daughter. The family was devastated like any family would be. Then they found the church and they learned that they can see the daughter and be a complete family again. I feel the spirit most strongly when she bears her testimony of that. That it’s not over. And I always get soo happy and I feel the spirit soo strong when I know that I’m going to live with my family OTRA VEZ con DIOS PARA SIEMPRE (again with God forever) in a state of NEVER ENDING HAPPINESS!!! That’s our end goal! The celestial kingdom! Leggo! haha
I don’t really like using Facebook but I’m learning how to make it work. But Monday is when I changed my thoughts about it because…I had a lesson with a friend from high school! It was BOMB! I loved it. I told him about what I do and everything. It was soo good talking to him. This gospel means soo much that all I want to do is share it. Sharing the gospel = the greatest happiness in the world!
But through the ups and downs, it’s always a fabulous day to be a missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission 🙂
I love you all, always remember that.
