The Floodgates Open...

Hello everyone!! I have about 6 minutes today, so you will be getting a crash course of what has happened, but it will be awesome.

I had an amazing opportunity to attend the temple with the Evans' family this week, who is a family that I taught over a year ago in Casa Grande. They were able enter the temple and be sealed together forever this week. It was the coolest experience I have ever had. I cried when I saw their two little girls walk in dressed in white, and I knew and felt how important that event was for them. They have come so far to get here and the joy on their faces was something I will never forget.  I am so grateful I was a part of it. I love them so much and will always have a strong connection with them after seeing them grow and progress. 
We also had a baptism this week for Annalisa, an 11-year old girl who has one of the strongest testimonies I have ever heard! She was baptized and confirmed as a member of the church on Saturday, and all of her family members wer…

White October

Hey there all of my favorite people!! I hope this week was the greatest week of all time, because it definitely was for me. So many cool experiences and good things to share with you. Where do I even start? We gotta start somewhere. 

First off, I am so grateful to be in the South Phoenix area for a 5th transfer. That is usually above average for a missionary, you usually stay in an area from 2-4 transfers, so I was interested to see what would happen this transfer and so far it has been miracle after miracle. I had a really cool opportunity this weekend to baptize one of our investigators named Lucia, who is such an awesome person. She had been taught by missionaries for 5 years, ad finally in August she decided that she needed this in her life. At the end of the baptism service, she got up and shared her story with all of us, and it was so powerful to hear the hard things she had gone through to get to where she is today. When I first got into the area, the first interaction I had wit…

The Good, The Better & GENERAL CONFERENCE!

Hey everyone! It has been a pretty crazy week, so many good things, we had transfers and about half of the zone actually changed, so it was a pretty crazy transfer day. We were coordinating rides, car switches, missing tablets, de-activated phones, we had it all. Due to the hurricanes destroying Puerto Rico, actually we have two missionaries re-assigned from the Puerto Rico Mission! They're names are Elder Marte and Elder Rogers, one from the Dominican Republic and one from Canada. They are awesome!

We have a baptism coming up for Lucia and Nelson this weekend, so we are super excited!! Lots of good things coming!!

There was an experience that I wanted to share with you! Last night we had a cool experience with an investigator family! The parents, Heather and Ryan, called us to ask for help in moving, and so we helped them move a few weeks prior to this lesson. They never seemed super interested in the gospel. They were fully committed to attending another church in Mesa, a good 30 …
