the happiness glow . . . .

Dear Family and Friends,

So there are lots of changes coming this week. My new companion is Sister Gillette, fun fact - she is actually Sister Lowder's best friend from home AND Sister Chen trained her, so we've got some good connections there. I'm so excited to be with her! PLUS she isn't going home so I'm not sending anyone else home for now :) so happy. She is a new STL so it'll be fun to train her in that and we are getting more sets of sisters to look after so a lot of good stuff is happening here in Coventry!!!

Sister Rasmussen goes home tomorrow which is way sad...but it'll be good for her! She has some good stuff planned for her life and I am excited to see what happens for her :)

This week....wow. It's been crazy. We had 2 exchanges (pictures to come) and a lot of craziness, but it's been fabulous. I don't have much time to write cause we have to go to Birmingham for Sister Rasmussen's departing interview, but it was a great last week with her and we worked HARD and miracles are coming because of it!

1. don't be afraid
2. have faith
3. work
4. do what is right
5. persevere to the end.

Woo back to the points! These are just so good - and they honestly have been applying so well to my mission lately. So point number 4 is do what is right.

In my mission I have seen how important this is. There is a scripture that says "consider...the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual.." This is so true. We talks to lots of people every single day - many people who are SO unhappy. Happiness comes as we live the way we should, as we take care of ourselves and others, and follow the commandments of God. True happiness comes from living right, and doing what is right every day! There is a ring I've got that I wear every day that has CTR on it, which reminds me every single day to choose the right. 

There was a lady we taught this week who asked us, "when I have to make a hard choice, how do I know what to do?" We just said, "ask yourself what Christ would do in this situation, and do it!" Christ lived a perfect life to be that example for us, so that we know what to do and how to do it. As we do what is right every day, we truly will be happy! There is a "glow" that people have when they are doing what is right and you can see it! I love the happiness glow :) and my challenge to you this week is to do what is right every day! Just serve and love and try your best to live as Christ would, and see how it affects your week. That extra focus on always doing what is right will bring miracles.

I love you all!! Thank you for your constant support and love.

I know God loves each and every one of us. I know it.

Dear Family and Friends,

I don't have a ton of time because we went to Warwick castle today for pday, I sent loads of pics I think so check those out. 

Also I just want to say I love you LOTS and happy birthday this week! 

My update this week is a little shorter. We had a lot of things happen but I'll just send some highlights :) 

This week we had interviews with president! It was really cool to talk with him about how much I have grown and things, and to learn a bit more about myself and why certain things happen in the mission. I am excited for the months to come and to see how I can learn even more. 

We had a lot of miracles this week....a friend put himself on a date for baptism, we were able to call someone right when they needed us and we had an amazing exchange! We were on exchanges with the Peterborough sisters, and they are FANTASTIC! We also had the Leicester zone meeting which was so good. It's interesting to see the different ways leaders teach and help others learn. 

This week was also one of the hardest of my mission. Some things happened with missionaries and friends that broke my heart. Sometimes, Satan works really hard on people and it is really hard to see. I feel as I am out here, representing Jesus Christ, sometimes we have to suffer. He suffered more than we could ever imagine and sometimes we have to suffer a bit to learn more about him. I feel like...I have been able to feel of Gods love for his children this week more than I ever have in my life. 

When we do ALL we can to help someone and they still end up making mistakes and hurting themselves, I feel like we are able to feel how God feels about us sometimes. We all make mistakes. And God has done everything he can to help us to NOT make mistakes. But sometimes we still do. And that is why the atonement is here, that is why Christ died for us....that is why we have that gift. So we don't have to feel the pain alone, and we can get through it with someone helping us every step of the way. I have felt that so much this week. I know God loves each and every one of us. I know it. And I know we can feel that love as we turn to him, no matter what. 

Thank you all for the support and love you give me! Sorry my email is shorter this week, time is running out...

Love,

the best moments in our life . . .

Dear Family and Friends,

Ok...I swear each week just gets crazier and crazier this transfer haha. So busy....and so tired this week. But it has been good. 

Monday - so we went bowling as a district with Georgie and Claudia and Salonge, and it was SO fun!!! I may or may not have been winning during the second game...so that is good haha. We then went to Tish's house for dinner, and then went and saw one of our amazing friends who was having a really hard time, and I think we were able to just brighten her day and remind her how much God loves her. 

Tuesday - so....we were supposed to go to Birmingham to pick up some sisters from Leicester, so we went BUT all the new missionaries luggage got lost and then found and it wasn't coming till around 7:30 that night, so we drove back to Coventry, did some service and taught some lessons and then drove back to Birmingham, then to Leicester to drop the sisters off, then back to Coventry....lets just say all that driving was EXHAUSTING, and we got home late so it was really quite an adventure. 

Wednesday - so we drove to Warwick and picked up the sisters there for exchanges!!! Woo! I was with sister Frandsen (who was with sister Chen and I for 2 weeks last transfer) and we had loads of fun, and met some really cool new people who want to learn more about God and it was awesome! Sister Rasmussen and I forgot to plan our training for zone meeting the next day so we also had to do that later on haha. 

Thursday - zone meeting!!! Zone meeting went really well, I think we all learned a lot and we got to use our musical skills too. Elder smith and I played the ukulele and sister Rasmussen and elder mthethwa joined us and we sang a child of God. It actually was pretty fun and I think it brought the spirit as well :) we then ended exchanges and they travelled home and we taught a lot of lessons! We didn't have a DA..and we were both so tired that we just slept for the entire hour of dinner. We then had a couple more lessons, which was amazing and...yeah! It was a good day 

Friday - so we weekly planned in the morning and actually finished all our planning, which was a first for me in this area so that was fabulous, and then we had a few lessons! For some reason everyone seemed to forget they were meeting with us...so we ended up doing a lot of finding. Then we got dropped by a couple people and were really having a hard time and then ended up having an amazing lesson with a friend, being able to answer all his questions and things and it was so good!!! We then saw Claudia and Salonge and had a late dinner with them.

Saturday - we taught some lessons in the morning and then went to sports!!! A lot of people came which was SO good. Then we had a few more amazing lessons, and then went to Warwick as the sisters there had a baptism, and were able to support them and get some people there as well to see it! It was a wonderful day. 

Sunday - MIRACLE DAY!!! So basically, we were really sad cause none of the people we met came to church, but we asked a member to come out teaching with us after church, and she did. We went to the lessons we had planned and he asked us to come back in half an hour, so we went finding with this member, and were talking to these two lovely ladies, who asked us if we could just sit down with them then and there and have a lesson, so we did! It was amazing, and they just wanted to learn so much and we are so excited to see them later this week! We then went back to the man we were supposed to have a lesson with earlier, and the lesson we had was AMAZING. He committed to be baptised and really wants to follow God. It was seriously an amazing miracle day. 

Alright...so I'm going back to those 5 points I talked about awhile ago.

1. don't be afraid 
2. have faith 
3. work 
4. do what is right 
5. persevere to the end.    

This week I want to talk about the third one - WORK. There is a quote that I love that says "the best moments in our lives usually occur when a persons body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile." I love this quote, and it is so true. The happiest I have been in my life is when I am working my hardest to accomplish something great. My mission has been that way for me....it is hard. It is one of the hardest things I've ever done. But it is so great, and as I work hard, I am so very very happy. We can never be truly happy if we just sit on our couch doing nothing....but when we get out and work our hardest, that is when the best moments in our life happen. I definitely know that is true. 

This week I was thinking a lot about some dreams and goals I have for my life. Sometimes, it seems like dreams are impossible. But I know if we set goals to work up to those dreams, and WORK for it, we can do anything. I've picked a couple things I want to achieve in life, and from now onward, I am working to achieve them no matter how much work it takes. My challenge to you all is to pick a dream that you have, and to work your hardest to achieve it. It doesn't have to be a huge one, it can be anything from learning a song on the guitar, to getting a certain score on a test, to beating your personal best in a race. Whatever it is, work for it, and you will achieve it. 

Love you all!

I LOVE the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true!

Dear Family and Friends,

So my weekly email this week is kind of...well...I just skyped so I feel as though I don't have too much to say. But some fun things this week! 

We went to Stamford to help the sisters out again, and it was SO good! We went tracting and met this guy who had met the missionaries in Poland before and he just let us in to meet his family, which was so cool. 

We helped Georgie dye her hair - coolest service I've ever done - so now it is brown! 

We taught some amazing lessons, especially one with a friend who was not sure if this church was true, but  finally understood about the priesthood and everything and came to church and just felt that it was true! It was amazing to see the spirit work in him. 

I love sharing gospel with people. And I want to share a bit with you about my love for the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is what brought me back to the church after a few years of not caring. The Book of Mormon is truly what lead me to be here on a mission. I know that ANYONE who reads it, and truly wants to know if it is true, will find it out that it is for themselves. It is the truest book on the earth, and testifies of Christ and the atonement so powerfully that the spirit is obligated to be there. I love the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. 

I love you all lots!
