Week 65: La Navidad
Merry Christmas! I hope you have the greatest Christmas and really focus on what’s important 🙂 I’m blessed to have 2 Christmas’ on my mission! It’s the best!
I know that Jesus is the Christ and He was born so that we could live. Now during Christmas, the attention of the whole world is on Him! It’s been the greatest honor to be a representative of my Savior, Jesus Christ and bring this message of hope and joy to others.
Mosiah 3:17″And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent”
I love you all!

Week 66: FAMILY
Speaking with my family through a video call was so sweet! It was good to see and hear from them 🙂 I hope you all had a great Christmas as well!
Hermana Leavitt and I are staying together for another transfer here in Yuma and we are SO HYPED! I love that woman. She’s ending her training this coming transfer but she seems like a very experienced missionary. Her progress from the beginning of her mission and now is incredible!! She takes all the calls in English and Spanish and I stand there with a huge smile and two thumbs up. She’s a great missionary!
We found the most amazing kids ever who have the greatest desire to learn about God. It’s actually insane! The amount of kids that we’ve met that want to know more and be in accordance with God is unbelievable. We passed a few kids off to the english missionary and had the most fire lesson. We taught about the Plan of Salvation and it answered their questions about where they are going after this life and why families are so important and they loved it! Their names are Destinee, Esiquio, and Nora. What a team! They are all just neighborhood friends. They have a hot business of selling slime haha. I don’t have the pictures with me today (sorry!!) but next week I’ll send it- it’s a picture of all them holding up their flyers that they made. They all want to have their families forever and we were like, “Well let’s make it happen!” and they got sooo happy! They taught everything we taught them to their families and other friends haha they are awesome!
The entire year of 2018, I was on my mission! And I have more time to go!! I love being a missionary and love being able to recognize God’s influence in everyday life. I love bringing this message of hope and joy to those that are truly seeking it. As one of my dear previous companions once said, “There’s no such thing as a dead area. Just a dead missionary.” There are people EVERYWHERE who are diligently seeking truth, and my companions and I were led to them and are continually being led to them everyday. I love you all! Happy New Years 🙂
