It was a week like no other...

Hola mis amigos!
Today marks 5 months for Hermana Prescott, Hermana Smith, and I! I cannot believe it! poor Hermana Cortes is greeny busting the three of us. You can imagine the party we have!
In District Council we talked about Teaching People, Not Lessons. I think that is seriously one of the most important teaching skills. If you can take the gospel and personally apply it to others, it will touch their hearts so much more! It's still a struggle for me to talk to strangers, but it is a working progress. Poco a poco is all the Lord asks of us. Daily improvement from yesterday!

WE HAVE A NEW INVESTIGATOR! He's name is Jorge and he is a former than we tracked down. They didn't give us a reason for dropping, but he was willing to listen to us and he agreed to Read and Pray about the Book of Mormon! Tender mercies are real because Hermana Prescott and I have been praying for the opportunity to teach.
Random Act of Kindness this week. After a long day, Hermana Prescott and I stopped on the way home to get some churros. And then when we were driving home we had the change to pull over and help this man push his car into a gas station! We wouldn't have been able to do that if the Holy Ghost hadn't told us that we wanted Churrios. (How ever the heck you spell that.)
On Saturday we had the Confernecia Hispanica for all of the mission! We got to listen to the Spanish patriarch and his wife speak and see basically all of the missionaries serving in Spanish work. So I got to see Hermana Wade!!! It was awesome and I loved that we got to have so many RC's hear the importance of the temple for a new voice. The other sisters RC, Irma, is so excited to go to the temple now!
I love you all and wish you all the best! Les quiero mucho!

March 15, 2016

Hello Everyone!
 This week has been full of ups and downs. We don't have any progressing Investigators because Marcelino moved and everyone else dropped us or disapeared off the planet. So we are knocking and Asking for referals, and finding finding finding. It's honestly really hard. We have knocked huge streets where two people awnser the door. Everyone knows we are the missionaries and they just really don't want to talk to us. I went on exchanges with Hermana Cortes and she helped boost the confidence. There are people here in Pasco who will listen to us for the right reasons!! (this week also makes marriage proposal count up to 4) The temple this morning was amazing! Thanks to my crazy Family History as a youth, The whole zone of 22 missionaries did my family names in the temple today. That was really cool. I'm so grateful for eternal families and the chance we have to be with those we love forever. love you all so much! Pray that we can find people!!

Hola Hermanas y Hermanos!
This week has been a bit of a struggle. A lot of people won't let us back in, or won't answer our calls, or won't even answer the door. Our only progressing Investigator, Marcelino, moved into the Elder's area so we are knocking our entire area this week! (He's on date for the 26th though!) Finding Finding Finding. Full of faith in every footstep!
Aldo has officially moved to Sacramento so we are in the process of moving his records down there. Rosario is amazing and told us this huge list of differences she has seen in her life since her baptism. I love her. Jose is great as well and really wants to share the gospel with his family in Mexico. Pray for him to get the chance!
Eva and Efiram and doing well. They are coming to church, but are still struggling with get married. We are praying and working with them. It's hard when everything has to go back and forth between Mexico!
This Friday Hermana Cortes taught me how to make enchiladas and I'm just going to say I would make an excellent Mexican Wife if all they wanted to eat was enchiladas! haha. No white cassoral type stuff. The real thing!
Les Quiero mucho! Estoy Orando para ustedes! Hasta Luego!

Rosario got baptized! (February 29, 2016)

Hola Hola!
Soooo, I'm still in Pasco! Hermana Wade left me and I now have Hermana Prescott! She is Tongan, born in Hawaii and from California. So we have all the fun conversations!
So Hermana Wade and I were tracking down MA's and we knocked on what we thought was a member home, But really it was this old man that lived alone. We started talking to him, like Hi we're missionaries..blah blah...And then we asked him if he had ever hear dof the Book of Mormon and he was like yes! I have that book! He ran and got it he told us he reads it EVERY NIGHT. He is in the middle of Alma!!!! He was telling us that it was the word of God! Then I asked him if he was baptized, cause like you know, I asked! Then He said, "Well I was baptized in the catholic church as a baby, but I don't think that is right, Because Christ was baptized When he was older. Your church baptized when they are older right? I need to be baptized like that." CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?! I didn't! His name is Pedro and he is on date for the 19th of March!!
Thursday we spent the whole day knocking and the second to last door we knocked on was Lora! She was really sweet and agreed to read and Pray about the book of Mormon! We are going back to see her tomorrow.
ROSARIO GOT BAPTIZED! Elder Thompson, our district Leader, Baptized her. She was so happy and she just started crying and she said she felt such peace. I love her with all my heart! She is someone I am so glad I got to meet. I need her in Heaven with me. I love her. In the photo is her six year old daughter Caridad.
I love serving the lord! It is seriously the best thing ever! Les quiero mucho!
