SEEDS HAVE GROWN….                        4/25/16
Hi all,
It was an amazing week! We finally taught the knight family!!  They are
the people that we accidentally drove into their driveway 2 weeks ago!
We have had the hardest time scheduling with them but we finally had an
amazing lesson with them on Tuesday!!! They are so prepared to hear
the gospel. I know they moved from Alabama to this tiny town in Utah
because Heavenly Father had a message for them. And, they recognize
that. It was very powerful lesson and we were all crying. They are preparing
for baptism on June 4th!  They are one special family. 
 I wish I had time to write about every single person we are teaching because
they are all having spiritual experiences. Fir example, we taught a less active
man and he broke down in tears because his testimony of prayer was so
strong. Dang the gospel is so true!

We got to a lot of service this week. We helped at the bishops
storehouse and that's always fun. We also helped one of our Ward
mission leaders gather tons of wood on his farm so he could burn it!  And
hopefully next week we get to help him brand his cows!!!! I'm so

This week we had Zone conference in Richfield.  It's always good
to be back in Richfield!!  It was a really good zone conference. I had
to teach a couple of trainings, but my favorite one was for dress and
grooming. We were asked to do training on appropriate dress for
missionaries, so I got to dress up like a sloppy missionary so that was
fun!  Sadly I do not have a picture haha.  It was a really great
meeting. President and Sister Center are sad to go home soon.
After zone conference something amazing happened!!  So over a year ago,
when I was serving in Richfield, Sam got baptized. She was an older
lady whose husband had passed away but she so badly wanted to be
sealed to him in the temple. Then about 2 months after she was
baptized, she passed away.  Most of her family are not members or
are less active.  Recently I've been worrying and praying about who
will do the temple work for her because none of her family would be
working on it,  I had no way to get in contact with the family!!!
So this is the cool part... After zone conference we went to Wal-Mart
in Richfield (cause Beaver doesn't have one) and we were walking down
an isle and this lady walks by me and turns around and yells " hey you
were the one that taught my mom!" It was Sam's daughter!!  I made sure
I got her Information this time haha.  And I asked if they were
planning on doing the temple work for her and she said she hadn't even thought
about it. She is not very active but said she would talk to the bishop
about it and she asked if I could help with the temple work. Wow it
was a HUGE miracle to see her daughter!! I know that we were supposed
to run into each other that day. Sam must really want to get her work

And, another amazing thing that happened... This man I taught in Kanab
was baptized!!! His name was Reed and he was super stubborn haha. He
has gone through tons of missionaries. Before I left Kanab, he set a
date for baptism. And he finally got baptized on Saturday! He is a
great guy that was so prepared for the gospel and we had some really
great experiences with him. It is awesome to see that amazing things
happen even after you leave an area!  I have learned that some people
just need time.  I always think of Alma 32. The seed must be
nourished for it to grow but it must be with patience and diligence

Alma 32:41-43
41 But if ye will nourish the word, yea, nourish the tree as it
beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with
patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root;
and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

42 And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with
the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by
and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which
is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is
white, yea, and pure above all that is pure; and ye shall feast upon
this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, neither shall
ye thirst.

43 Then, my brethren, ye shall reap the rewards of your faith, and
your diligence, and patience, and long-suffering, waiting for the tree
to bring forth fruit unto you.

                     SPRING SNOW STORM

Hi All,

Well we are continuing to work with a lot of amazing people here in
Beaver!  We see a lot of less active members.
Iit's cool to see their testimony rekindled as they are reminded of
the truthfulness of the gospel.

We taught Dean (the one from Kentucky) a great lesson!  He has tons of
questions and they are all answered through the Plan of Salvation. We
didn't even get through the whole plan because we had a great
discussion and he had so many good questions. He was sent here to Beaver
for a reason. He is truly building his relationship with his Heavenly

We also had a cool district meeting at Cove Fort this week.
It's a church historic site in the middle of nowhere. But it's really
neat!  The pioneers built it and now they have it available for tourists.
I was actually there a year ago to help them clean. It's a beautiful place
with a special spirit!

While we were at Cove Fort, we did a service project.
We painted some fence posts with oil…
so the horses don't chew on the fence.  Haha I didn't know that
was a problem.  It was a lot of work and super messy...But worth it!
We also helped several people move this week and we helped another family
with their garden.  Service is the best!  And it really helps soften
people's hearts towards the gospel. "And behold, I tell you these
things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in
the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your
God." Mosiah 2:17

We also taught the family from Thailand on Monday. They are such a neat
family and I love them so much!  They cooked us awesome Thai Food.
There is an elder in our mission from Thailand!
He is serving in Parowan which is like 30 minutes away. So
he came to help us teach!  It was a great lesson... Most of it was in
Thai because the parents don't speak any English haha. But the cool
part about that lesson is that I couldn't understand one thing... But
the spirit was so strong!  I knew that they were feeling the spirt too.
They are so prepared for baptism!!  They just have a hard time getting
to church because of work. But I know the Lord will provide a way for
them if they are really committed!  I know this is not my work..This is
the Lords work. I love the people here in Beaver and I love my job!!

Love y'all

A WEEK OF MIRACLES!!!!!!!!!!!!    APRIL 11,2016                             


It was a busy week here in Beaver Utah! It was the first week of a new transfer. My companion is Sister Holmes from Illinois. We have been out about the same amount of time and we both go home at the same time. We are both in our last two weird!   We had a lot of catching up to do this week. But the Lord blessed us. We are finding more and more people who are prepared. The gospel is changing lives here in Beaver Utah!

Tuesday we met a man named Dean. We were visiting some people at this old motel that they turned into an apartment complex. We are there a lot because we teach almost everyone that lives there haha. But there were some guys we knew  who were outside, and they were with someone we had never met before! His name was Dean and he had just moved here two weeks ago from Kentucky!   We were able to share our testimony of the gospel and he wants us to come back and teach him. He has a lot  of really good questions, especially about Heavenly Fathers plan for us!  And plus he already doesn't drink or smoke which is  rare to find

We are still teaching Luis who is getting baptized soon. He is 8 and his mom is not a member. He goes to church with a lot of his friends, and he loves it.  We had a really good lesson with them and the mom really opened up!!!  She really wants to go to church and she knows she will eventually get baptized. She just works a lot and has some things holding her back. But a cool thing that happened with she has been having back problems so she had to get an MRI. And with the results... the doctor told her she can no longer smoke or drink coffee!! Thats a small miracle I think! haha

Thursday night we had another neat miracle...we were out in this tiny town outside of Beaver called Greenville. There aren’t too many people that live there...and most of them are active members of our church. But we were asked to go visit someone. So we were trying to find their house. (The homes out there are very hard to find and very spread out) So, We thought we found the right home and we turned down this road and it ended up being someone’s driveway and next thing we knew, we were right in front of their house. There was a group of people just staring at us wondering what we were doing.  So, my companion rolled down the window and asked how to get to the persons house we were looking for. Long story short… We ended up talking to them for a long time. They had just moved here from Alabama a week ago. They know nothing about the LDS church but they have met some great people. They asked when church was and they also asked if we had some pamphlets they could read! The wife even asked how hard it was to join the church. They had great questions and asked if we could come back and meet with them! We are seeing them tomorrow and I am super excited!! They are awesome, and I know it was no accident that we pulled into their drive way!

We work with a lot of less actives as well. And every one of them doesn't read the Book of Mormon or any scriptures. But, we get to testify to them the importance of the scriptures and how much it will bless their life. I have seen how much peace the Book of Mormon brings. It’s the best..It has changed my life and the lives of others!!! I love my job!!

Love yall
