 Last performance in Tabernacle before closing for renovation.
St Geroge Temple Visitors Center 

Well, this week flew by... I can't even remember half of the things that happened!!  But things have been going really good. Every day Sister Walter and I  I see so many little miracles in the Visitors Center. The other day a family of six came in to the VC from California. They saw this beautiful white building (the temple) from the freeway and they wanted to know more!  I gave them a tour and they had so many great questions!  They each ended up leaving with a Book of Mormon, a family proclamation, and some other materials. It was amazing!!,  and so fun to teach/talk with them. I know that they were led to the Visitors Center for a reason.  Stuff like that happens all the time! And Every day, we teach people online.  We accept calls from people who have questions about the church. I answered a call from a lady who found the number at a truck stop. She felt like she needed to call it so she did. I had the opportunity to teach her about the restoration. She wanted a copy of the Book of Mormon, the Bible and a DVD!  And she even accepted the invitation for missionaries to come to her home and teach her!  It was truly a miracle!

As part of serving in the Visitors Center, we go out once a week and give tours at the historic sites in St. George. So, this week we were at Brigham Young's Winter Home and gave tours. It’s really a great opportunity because a lot of nonmembers come through because they are traveling and they want to see the historic sites. So we get to give them a tour of Brigham's home and teach them the gospel as well. We had a couple come in with lots of questions. The spirit was so strong. And they even accepted a Book of Mormon and were excited to read it!

This week in our area, in Bloomington Hills, we are teaching a family of 7 that are all nonmembers. They are amazing!  Of course, some of them are progressing more than others.  It’s awesome to see the spirit touch their hearts. They are so close to accepting the invitation to be baptized!! It’s just really hard for some people to commit. But I know they will one day soon!

We have also started teaching this lady from Russia. She has lots of really interesting questions. It’s a really different experience to teach her but she is feeling the spirit for sure!

Sunday evening we had a unique opportunity as missionaries to sing in the tabernacle. They are closing the tabernacle for a few years for renovation, so this was the farewell concert. The spirit was so strong in that room. You could feel the pioneers sacrifice and all they did to build that beautiful building. Every modern day prophet (except Joseph Smith) has spoken from that pulpit in the tabernacle. I have fallen in love with the pioneer history here in St. George. It’s amazing to think of all of their sacrifices because they KNEW this gospel was true! I know it is true as well!!

"Come what may and love it."
Love yall!

LEAVING BEAVER,                                      May, 23rd

Well, I left Beaver on Tuesday...It was bitter sweet. I was able to say my goodbyes, it was super sad to say goodbye to the Knights...I just love them so much!!   Beaver is an amazing area so I will really miss it. But… after a short hour and a half drive, I made it down to St. George. And I already don’t like the heat!  Ha-ha. My New Companion is Sister Walter from Germany, she is awesome, I love working with her.  

So, at the Temple Visitor's center, we spend half of the day there and half of the day in our area. It switches morning and afternoon. And the visitor’s center it is very different from what I am used to. I am used to going out and finding people to teach, but here at the VC, the people come to us!  Lots of miracles happen. People from all over the world come in because they are on vacation visiting the national parks. I had this couple from Texas come in the other day. They had so many questions especially about what the temple is. They really were intrigued by the fact that families can be sealed for time and all eternity. We also have the opportunity to teach people online through We accept chats or phone calls from people with questions.   If they want to learn more we help get them in contact with their local missionaries or continue to teach them online!  Lots of cool miracles happen doing that...I love’s the best!

Since we only get half the time in our area, it’s kind of struggling. We are trying to find more people to teach. We have some, but we sure have a lot of work to do!  We did find an amazing family this week!  The parents are less active members and they have three teenage daughters who are not baptized. We had a good long conversation with the mom. She is just so confused with religion right now. She said she honestly feels like Joseph Smith when he was searching for the truth. But she really wants us to come and teach her family. They are prepared and ready to make changes in their life. This gospel is so amazing. I love having the opportunity to testify to people every day of the joy that the gospel brings."...and they were filled with that joy which is unspeakable and full of glory." (Helaman 5:44)

I love my job!!

CINCO DE MAYO!               May 9th, 2016

This was a crazy, fun, busy week!  We saw a lot of people. Our new investigator
Joy is doing well... She has tons of questions so it's sometimes hard
to teach her things! She talks a lot...  which is awesome.  She is so prepared.
Charles and Mandee are doing was a stressful week for them so
we didn't get to see them as much as we would have liked to.

Thursday was a crazy day!!  We had zone meeting in Cedar City all day.
We played tug of war at the meeting with all the missionaries so that was
fun!  It was to help us learn to be more unified and "equally yoked".
Then we had to get back to Beaver and help set up for the Cinco de
Mayo party!  Since there is a huge Hispanic population here in Beaver,
the Spanish elders, us and some members set up a party at the church
building and it was a huge success!  A lot of of our investigators came and
it was super fun. Tons of good food too!  I was in charge of the piƱata so
that was crazy… Ha but way fun.

We also had a powerful lesson with the Alabama family on the atonement and
how the savior can help us forgive. Both of them have had
some hard things that have happened to them in the past that they have
a hard time forgiving. He said he literally felt a weight in his
shoulders. That brought to mind this scripture:

"13 And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in
their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort,
for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will
covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage. 14 And I will
also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you
cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and
this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and
that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people
in their afflictions." (Mosiah 24:13-14)

That Saviors atonement is so amazing and can literally lift the burden
from our shoulders. Everyone in the room was crying...I just love them
so much!  The gospel of Jesus Christ is changing lives!!

Love y'all!

I LOVE TO SEE THE TEMPLE…  May 12th 2016


It’s been a good week!  We met Joy this week... She is so prepared and
has so many great questions!  She works at the car repair shop, It's a cool
story with how we found her. The other day a lady walked into Joy's
repair shop with church clothes on.  Joy asked her why she was all
dressed up. This lady told Joy that she had just come from the temple.
Joy had a lot of questions about the temple and remembered her mom
talking about the temple before she passed away. She remembers her mom
saying she wanted her temple work done! So we talked to Joy a lot
about the temple and how she can get her mothers work done. And now we
are teaching Joy and she has lots of good questions about the gospel!

We taught the family from Alabama a few more lessons this week... They are one
special family!  We taught them the plan of salvation and it was great
because they already have great faith in Christ. Then somehow in the
lesson we got on the subject of temples. They saw the picture of the
St. George temple and fell in love with it. Then the husband Jody
found out that he cannot go into the temple without a recommend. That
made him upset for a while. But we  were able to turn it
around by reminding him how he feels when he reads the Book of Mormon.
He feels so much peace when he reads it so that really helped the
situation!  He is really sensitive to the spirit. They are amazing people and
I love them so much!!

Then we started teaching this part member couple... Charles and
Mandee. She is a member but he is not. We had an amazing lesson with
them on Thursday!!! Charles is so prepared!!  He wants to get baptized,
 they have a few things to do first...but they are
both so willing to work at it. And he said the most amazing prayer! He
even blessed my family back home... How neat is that?!  He and his
wife have such a strong desire to change!!

On Friday and Saturday we were asked to do a lot of service. Friday we helped
at the cemetery. We helped roll out grass on to the dirt patches.
Unfortunately it rained the day before so the turf was wet and really
heavy  and we got covered in mud!!  But, it was fun...we also got to help
some people move in to their home and we cleaned the church on Saturday.

Friday I was on exchanges in Enoch (which I right next to Cedar City)
and so we got to drive by and see the progress of the cedar city
temple!!  Everyone is so excited for it to be here and it's going to be
beautiful! The temple is the best place to be :)

Love y'all and I love my job!
