Hello Everyone!

This week was a bit of a blur, but there were a few good highlights!

Tuesday we had zone conference. We talked about the Book of Mormon and practiced answering questions and helping others by using passages from the Book of Mormon. I am grateful for the Book of Mormon and the direction it has given me and my family. I know that it is the word of God. 

Also at zone conference, each of the missionaries who will be returning this transfer shared their testimonies. I was able to reflect as I shared that I know that this gospel is true, that Christ really did come to the earth and suffer for each of us so we can change our lives and find peace. I know that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ spoke to Joseph Smith and brought back the church Christ established during his ministry, and that they called Joseph Smith to be a prophet. 

Another big highlight this week - Susan was baptized! Since I just transferred in, I didn't get a chance to work with her long before her baptism, but it was special to see her faith in following the example of Jesus Christ by being baptized. The confirmation was especially good for her, and she said she felt chills run through her as she received the Gift of the Holy Ghost.

Yesterday I gave a talk in church about the importance of personal testimony. I referenced the story of Paul, writing from prison, encouraging the early saints to  stay faithful, as it would be increasingly more important that they have personal testimonies (Philippians 2:12). I also referenced the story of Nephi, and the story of Moroni, who both had to rely on their testimony of Christ to continue in faith through difficulties (1 Nephi 2:16, Moroni 1:2-4). I echoed our prophet, President Monson's challenge, and I'll share it with each of you as well: "If you do not have a firm testimony of these things [knowing that the Book of Mormon is true], do that which is necessary to obtain one." Taking on this challenge has blessed my life.

In other news, I've been working on some return preparations. There are a lot of goals to set and things to finish. It's been an adventure. 

Hope you're all doing well!

Hello Everyone!

It's been a crazy last few weeks! We had zone activity day a few weeks
ago, then it was 4th of July, then Sister Alder went home. So I've
been busy!

Sister Alder was an awesome companion and I miss her, but she is going
to do great things at home! Sister Felt and Sister Swanson (past
companions) also went home this transfer. They've each been great
examples to me.

With Sister Alder going home, I assumed I would be staying in Venice
and receiving a new companion. Instead, Venice closed this transfer
and I transferred up to Citrus Ridge (in Davenport) which is the exact
opposite corner of the mission. Sister Felt's companion (Sister
Saunders) and I packed up the whole Venice apartment, transitioned all
the people we were teaching to the nearest missionaries, and got on
the road in about a day and a half. That was a miracle! Sister
Saunders is a saint.

My new companion here in Citrus Ridge is Sister Jensen! She is from
Utah and we are guessing she will finish her mission here since she
goes home 2 transfers after me. She's been sick this week, so we've
mostly been inside.

Today we went shopping with some members. They are so nice and take
the missionaries every week to save miles.

Since Sister Jensen has been under the weather, I've had some
additional study time this week. My favorite was the insight I gained
in Moroni. He is the last one from his civilization, and yet he holds
on to hope and teaches future generations about the Holy Ghost, or
Comforter, which must have been a great strength to him.

I hope you are all doing well! Feel free to email :)
