I made it to Vegas! I'm currently serving in the Lone Mountain Zone in
two different wards with massive areas. It's in North Las Vegas. So
far I'm really loving it here. My new trainer Sister Huni is from
Tonga and is one of the best people ever. She is honestly so sweet! My
mission president and wife are also really awesome and they are really
good people. I have a feeling Vegas is going to be great. We are
currently living with a less active member in her home. She is so
sweet and loving. Yesterday was a long day but it was also a really
good one. After our 5 hour intro meeting I met my trainer and we went
to dinner at a members home. They were awesome and we shared a special
message about becoming truly converted to the gospel and what that
really means. It was great to meet some members from here and see
their kindness that enfolds. After dinner we came home and planned a
little bit and then went to go teach K. K is a 17 year old girl that
is from a part member family but isn't baptized yet. It was our first
lesson with her and her mom. It was so great. The spirit was so strong
there and we talked about everything in the restoration and then I
asked her to be baptized and she said yes! It was so good and that was
the first time that we had seen her. The spirit honestly was so strong
but I'm stilling trying to grasp how to properly have the
companionship of the Holy Ghost in our lessons and use him as a
teacher. Today was also good we had study time and then zone meeting
for intros then after we went and taught a less active member Sis.D.
She was the sweetest little lady and was so loving towards us and what
we do. Then we went shopping for food and guess who I ran into??? Meri
Brown from the Sister Wives...they live about 2 blocks outside of our
area. It was so weird but she was really nice and talked to us so
great. Now I am at home writing this up. We have more lessons tonight
which I'm excited for. The members are so great and I can't wait for
church so that I can meet more of them.


Hey Everyone! 
It's Thursday today is my pday so im finally able to write you all! Ahh I dont even where to start. it has been one long long long week! Seriously! Im not going to say that it has been an easy week because it hasnt at all but it has been an interesting one filled with a lot of growth and questioning if what I was doing. ive i probably cried everyday out of frustration because teaching the gospel isnt as easy as I thought but honestly I am learning so much and I love this gospel even more thatn I did when I got here. Let me just review my week with you. When i got here on Wednesday i was immediately thrown into a whirlwind of exciting stuff. I wake up at 6 every morning workout eat and get to class at 8:30 then we study and learn and all that good stuff then lunch and a three hour class and then dinner and a three hour class and then back to the room where you have like 30 minutes to shower and get ready for bed and then your journal and lights out at 10:30. I share a room with five other girls. It was interesting at first but i already love these people more than I thought I could. My companion is a saint. we are very similar for the most part. She is from Kentucky and loves everything outdoors. i love her. Its been hard adjusting to missionary life and it has been both a blessing and a curse but honestly life here at the MTC is interesting and I love it. i leave for Vegas on Monday at 3:35am and then i will be off into the real world of missionary work. There are a couple of things that i have learned this week that I hope with be an insight to the importance of me being a servant to the Lord.
1. We started teaching investigators on friday and I didnt know anything. i guess you could say that it has been hard to simplify the gospel into the basics because I want people to grasp that this is true. I learned that I needed to be more humble and trust in Lord. Relying on the Lord is not a weakness.
2. There are a lot of things that I should have done before I left for my mission. I should have studied my scriptures more and Preach My Gospel but I didnt and i have been so humbled to realize that whatever I ask of the Lord he will help and that his grace is real. No matter how much I dont know ever since being here I have come to love my scriptures even more. The Book of Mormon seriously is another testament of Jesus Christ words.
ive really tried to be able to have the spirit with me at all times because listening to the spirit is vital for teaching the restored gospel. You would think that that has been easy after you get set apart to be a missionary for the Lord but it isnt. I am constantly trying to remind myself to have the spirit and to be humble. I love you guys so much and although I miss home and especially the rain, i know that I am here for a greater reason than just myself. I cant wait to find out what that reason is.
