BLESSINGS UPON BLESSINGS ! the restored gospel is true !
1 Nephi 17:50-51
"And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done."
"And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?"
we see miracles each and everyday .. i know i say that A LOT but it is TRUE ! i couldnt be happier .. lives are being changed daily and mine is as well .. daily !
MONDAY = FHE BBQ/BONFIRE FAREWELL TO OUR MISSY ! she is moving out to utah for school and work [ this week :( ] and i will miss her so much ! she is spritutally grounded in the gospel and it is amazing ! the Lord has told her He needs her out west right now AND i got her hooked up with my BFFL JOSE ROMO JR and i know he will show her the ropes ! also it was a night for such a good turnout of our YSA .. lots of friends were brought and lots of gospel centered discussions were taught !
TUESDAY = service to those we love. we didnt have any teaching appts but we did go and show our love to LEXIE WRIGHT and her family by helping move around their furniture [i LOVE the Wright family .. they are adopting me into their family .. Lexie goes to BYUH and makes me miss Hawaii every time we talk .. she is wonderful and SO funny ! ] and also a recent convert DAN FRANZ called so we could teach him .. strengthen where we serve !
WEDNESDAY = SISTERS CONFERENCE ! such a good time .. my sister johnson is such a solid and bold teacher .. i love her and learn so much from her .. i love teaching together .. its been amazing to be with her for almost 3 whole transfers .. ive been able to watch her grow beautifully in missionary work ! we taught about CREATIVE FINDING .. tracting vs. member referrals and it was good .. from day one with my MAMA HOOD i was taught that when you work with the members of the church your results and influence are far more reaching .. b.c. of her training i have been blessed with amazing opprotuntities to find the Lords prepared through working with the members of the church ! i love you my hai hai hood ! i love this work !

FRIDAY = PIONEER DAY ! i love the pioneers .. i dont think i am related to any who crossed the plains but i am sure thankful for all they did to pave the way for us now ! in honor we had a PIONEER PAINT BALLOON WAR ! we filled up water balloons with paint and water and just went after each other .. then REIDYNN one of our ysa decided to involve the pond mud and throw it at everyone .. needless to say we taught about pioneers and the fun they had while crossing the plains !!!
