 Hi all,                                                                                                              6/20/2016

We had such a great week planned!!!  Until everyone went out of town and cancelled on us! Ha-ha but it was okay because there were a lot of other people we were able to meet and to visit! 
We had an amazing miracle where we found a new investigator!
His wife is a member and he is super open to learning about the gospel! Both he and his wife are super excited about having us come back to teach them!  I’m pumped for the sisters who get to keep teaching him and for him to get baptized!
And this week I finally got the missionaries to Jasmine in Pakistan!!  (she is the lady I met and have been teaching online, I have been trying to figure out how to get missionaries to her) I had to wait till 9:00 at night to call because of the time change!   I called the mission office in India several times and no answer!  So I finally had to call the Mission president's cell phone! Ha-ha, but he got the information personally and made sure the missionaries got to her. And I even got call and talk to Jasmine for a few minutes!  She has a really thick accent so it was hard to understand but she has amazing questions, and she is so prepared to hear the gospel! So I am excited to see where that goes!

We got to give tours in the Jacob Hamblin home (*see below) this week! It’s another historical sight here in St George. And the cool thing is that while we were there, a polygamist family for Colorado City came to get a tour!!   It was so interesting because they actually knew a lot about Jacob Hamblin!  They were really nice people..I just thought that was interesting, made my day!

Well this is it...I will be home on Wednesday!  I guess! It still doesn't feel like my mission is ending. But, I had my exit interview with my mission president yesterday, and I just had a strong feeling of peace that I have done what I needed to do here.  I have truly loved serving a mission and especially the people I have met.  I will miss it so much but, I know the Lord has important things in store for me.  

My mission president asked what I have learned on my mission. Well... A LOT!  
But the biggest lesson I learned was that our Heavenly Father knows and loves us each individually.  I have felt a glimpse of the love He has for His children as I have been privileged to teach them.  He loves us so much that He sent His son to be our Savior. 
This gospel is so true!!!!!

I have truly LOVED my job!

Love you all!

*The Jacob Hamblin House is a historic residence and museum located in Santa Clara, Utah, near St. George, Utah. Jacob Hamblin was a Mormon pioneer and missionary who founded Santa Clara in 1854. After a flood destroyed the town, a group of missionaries constructed a new home for him on a hillside.

Teaching people from Pakistan to the UK in the St George Utah Visitors Center
St. Geroge Temple

Graydon's Baptism

Well this week was full, fun and busy!  We had a zone conference and it was sad because it was our Mission President, President and Sister Center's last zone conference. They end their missions a week after me. It was nice to hear their heartfelt testimonies. They are the best!

 Right after the zone conference we had to go to the Visitors Center for the rest of the day so we had no time to work  in our  assigned area. But, that night, we were teaching people online at the VC.... And it’s a long story..But basically I have a great referral for a lady in Pakistan. She is super interested in learning about our church, she reads the Book of Mormon already and she wants to be baptized. But it’s hard to get missionaries to her in Pakistan. So that night I spent hours trying to figure this out. Ha!  But I am getting closer!  It is not as easy as you would think!  But it’s just awesome to think that people all around the world are learning the gospel through technology!  It’s the best!

 Friday we were on shift at the Brigham Young historical home. It was crazy busy!!!! So many people came through that we had to shorten our tours so that we could get more people through. But ,we gave away four Book of Mormons during our shift, so that was all worth all of our hard work!

Saturday was a crazy but amazing day!  At the Visitors center I gave a tour to a couple from the UK!  So I gave them and tour and talked about the temple. Then I felt that I should teach about the restoration. We have a beautiful painting here in the visitor’s center of Joseph Smith's first vision. So I showed them that picture and taught the restoration. The spirit was so strong. They were honestly overwhelmed with all the information I had given them. Ha but they took a lot of printed information with them and they are excited to learn more about it!  

 Saturday afternoon, I was privileged to go to my old area to a baptism!!!! Nikki (our recent convert) her husband Graydon was baptized!!!  I was so grateful to be there, And the whole time Nikki kept talking about how a year from now they can be sealed as a family for time and all eternity! In the Temple It was so special!  It’s my favorite thing to see families come together!! 

 Sunday, we taught G. again..He said had an amazing answer to his prayers, and he is getting baptized in a couple of weeks. It amazing because now him and his wife can go to the temple and be sealed as well!!  The temple is the best!! My favorite thing about the visitor’s center is getting to see the St George temple every day. It is such a special place.  That is our goal as missionaries... to lead people to the temple!!!
I love my job so much!!!!
Love yall

                                                                   JUNE 6TH 2016
Time is going by way too fast!  Everyone keeps asking me how I feel about going home s0 soon...and honestly it just doesn't feel real!  There is too much work to do!  

Since my time left is getting shorter and shorter, I had been feeling a bit down on myself, I was feeling like maybe I haven't accomplished enough on my mission... even though I know that isn’t true. I have been praying to feel at peace and to know if I have done what Heavenly Father wanted me to do. And then one morning this week, our recent convert Nikki walks into the Visitors Center!! I hadn't seen her in about 4 months, and, she is doing well and staying strong in the gospel!  But, then she tells me that her husband is getting baptized this week!!! That was the biggest and best news!! I just started to cry. He will baptized and a year from that day, they plan to be sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. That was such an answer to my prayers. I know that I have done what the Lord needed me to do and Nikki coming to the VC and telling me this news gave me the peace I needed. Oh and Nikki's parents that we taught a few times are getting baptized this month as well!!! MIRACLES!

We are teaching so many interesting people in our area. We had a lesson with the Russian lady again...and let’s just say her heart isn't quite open to the gospel yet. But we did get to hear a lot about what she that was interesting!  And we had a great lesson with the family that we are teaching. Except only two of them were there..But it turned out really well because we taught the word of wisdom. It was actually a super powerful lesson - especially because the mom couldn't understand why we couldn't drink coffee or tea. So, we really focused on faith and bore testimonies of the blessing of living the word of wisdom. The spirit was so strong and she felt it too!  

We also had an amazing lesson with G...He has been investigating the church for a LONG time. We call those people "eternigators". His wife is a member and we had a great lesson with them!! The spirit was so strong and he committed to baptism! On June 25th. It was literally a miracle that he accepted that date. And he said the most powerful prayer at the end of our lesson...he is so ready!!

We also had a neat experience online with a chat in the teaching center. This girl came on chat...she lives and Germany but she is American. She had been praying to know what God wanted her to do. So the other day she was on the bus and two missionaries started talking to her. She was amazed that these boys would give up two years of their life for their religion. So she came onto the chat because something they said just stuck with her.  She is so prepared to hear the gospel. We are teaching her online and she is awesome!!  It’s neat to see that small thing that those missionaries did in Germany was an answer to this girl's prayer. I know that God will send people in our path to answer our prayers. I have seen that time and time again on my mission. Heavenly Father know us each individually. The gospel is so true and I love my job!!
