Get thee hence, Satan! (Aug 29, 2016)

August 29, 2016

"Get thee hence, Satan"



Hey Everyone!!

My pday is now Monday! And it will be for the duration of my time serving in Blue Springs 2nd!!

So these past few days have been a whirlwind, and ill be honest, probably been some of the hardest days I have encountered!

Sister Taylor and I have been off to a rocky start. But we really feel like Satan is getting to us. He is working so hard on us and it is so exhausting to not just give in or give up.

These past few days though I just want to share how thankful I am for the power of the priesthood, my mission president, my VC family, and the power of prayer.

But I got big news.

Last Friday I was called to be a trainer. At the ripe young missionary
age of 6 weeks!!

It's pday already?!?! Lol our pday is a day sooner this week because
we have zone conference the next couple days- YAAA!! Spiritual
nourishment to the max!!

So this week was like super super awesome in a ton of ways. Friday we
had zone training and it was soooo good. I love my ZOne leaders and
sister leaders. They are sooo awesome!! We talked a ton about patience
and faith and how we can see miracles in the mission.
I kind of had the spirit rebuke me throughout the training and I
really just realized that I needed to be more loving. I just had this
huge epiphany revelation moment where I realized that I needed to have
unconditional love. For my companion and for just anyone who I came in
co tact with. Christ loved everyone as they are, never expecting
anything in return. So I am working on that. And that's something I
had been praying for was more charity and love -- and God answers
prayers!!!


Tender Mercies of the Lord (Aug 4, 2016)

This week was good! I had a few awesome and uplifting experiences. Fridays we always have early morning trainings for the VC and this past week was especially great, and especially needed. We keep being brought back to all the Elder Anderson said to us about our mission and the miracles that await us as we put forth the faith and diligence and prayer to pull down those powers of heaven. So here are some great miracles:

Welcome to Zion everybody! (July 21, 2016)

July 21


So I made it to the mission field!! I am here in independence Missouri
and it's awesome!! There were about 25 new missionaries that came here
with me so I sat by all missionaries on the plane.
The first day we all got tours of each visitors center and went and
walked around the KC temple!! It was so cool and the spirit is so
strong here!!

Still weird to think that I'm actually here in Missouri. A lot of the
mornings I wake up and I have no idea where I am. Also getting up and
exercising is he worst part of my day. The exercises good I actually
work out but I hate waking up. I feel like I always lay down and about
a second later the alarm goes off.

Some other things about Missouri:
