Be like Nephi, Go and Do!


Hello Familia!

This week FLEW by! We got to have interviews with our mission president this last week which is always the greatest experience!

This week, the work has been extremely slow. It's been tough, even after the holidays, no one seems to want to talk to us! That doesn't stop Sister Stucki and I, if there's one thing I've learned this week it's the importance of persevering and being like Nephi, just going and doing it! Even in the slowest and toughest times, Heavenly Father blesses us with miracles! Saturday morning we were desperate for any sign of success! Almost all of our appointments fell through and our most progressing investigators either dropped us or stopped progressing completely. HOWEVER, Saturday morning came and we had a lesson with a 17 year old girl named Jenna. Jenna is adorable and incredibly spirited! She is very mature and in-tune to the spirit for her age! She loves to talk so it was a bit of a challenge to get a word in edge-wise but we finally were able to teach the first lesson and when Sister Stucki began teaching about Joseph Smith and the First Vision, Jenna got quiet and just started listening. After, Sister Stucki asked, "Jenna, do believe this happened to Joseph?" and Jenna said, "I know it happened. I can feel it!" I just wanted to cry in that moment! We invited her to be baptized and she said that is something she would really like to do so she is on date to be baptized on February 1st!

This is what it is all about! Those who are ready to hear, will hear! I am so grateful to be a part of this great work! I am so grateful for these experiences I am having and for the incredible blessing it is to be sharing this good news! I love this gospel so much! This church is the true Church of Jesus Christ! Heavenly Father knows His children and he loves them so much!

I love you all so much! Thanks for your love and support and prayers! This work is incredible! Sorry it's a short one this week! LOVE YOU!
