56 | 95 degrees and humidity at 8:00pm… Who knew?

Hello everyone! Happy ( belated ) Fathers Day to all the amazing fathers, future fathers, and father figures. I’m so grateful for my father and the love he has shown me and the council he has given me. I am especially grateful for our special relationship. One of the greatest things my dad and mom have done for me is that they have turned me to my Heavenly Father and my Savior. Thank you Mom and Dad. I love you so much! Also Kennedy’s birthday is tomorrow! She is turning three. So crazy! Happy Birthday sweet girl. I love you. 

Funny Story: Sister Curran and I were driving down the street trying to find a house we have contacted before and a man was mowing his lawn and he looked Polynesian so Sister Curran looked at him and said, ” cousin?” Haha. So we turned back around and went to go talk to him. Long story short he is not Polynesian and he is gonna be meeting with the Spanish elders soon. HAHA I love being with Sister Curran. Bless her heart she’s gonna be with me for 5 more weeks hopefully more. Pray for her I’m a weirdo. 

This week went by so quickly and was full of tender mercies and I would love to share some of those with you! And it was so hot. So so so hot. We are praying for those missionaries who don’t have cars with A/C. We are very grateful. 

Last week I woke up with terrible lower back pain on my right side. I ignored for a while but then it got to the point where I couldn’t bend forward without being in pain. So I decided to go to the Chiropractor for the first time ( I was freaked out haha ). They took an X-ray of my back and my spine was curved to the left side haha! So they looked at me and said, ” well were gonna have to do some adjustments” After being moved around and hearing some freaky popping noises it felt a little better. They then told me my shoulder bag was not helping my back. After the appointment Sister Curran called our district leader seeing if they had any extra backpacks in their apartment.( she’s the best ) Then our new district leader said, ” woah this is crazy. I felt inspired to bring my old backpack to this area. So there we go! It’s yours. ” Sister Curran and I were like what… that’s crazy. I was so grateful for that tender mercy! 

Sister Willoughby ( a sweet member in our ward ) bought us a pizza for dinner when we didn’t have anyone sign up. She is the sweetest lady. We love her so much! She does so much for the ward and the missionaries. 

Earlier this week we went to teach Ramona a lesson and it was around 5pm. After the lesson Brother Cashman ( Ramona’s son) said, ” I’m gonna make my amazing chocolate chip cookies, would you like to learn how?” Of course we did! We were able to talk with the Cashmans and Ramona and get to know them better. It felt like being at home on a Sunday evening cooking with the family and just having fun. We love the Cashman family so much. They are wonderful members and have become family to Sister Curran and I! 

All week it has been so hot and humid. Sister Curran and I have been walking quite a bit lately. It’s so funny to see all of the reactions we get when we people see us they say, ” what are you doing out in this heat?” ” y’all better get out of this heat” ” ooooohhhh you girls be brave to be out here” we love knocking on doors in this blazing heat for a two of reasons: 1. To feel a little bit of the A/C when they open their door. 2. To preach the gospel to everyone! ( that’s the best reason ) We were talking to a part member family outside and right before we left she said, ” let me give y’all some water bottles cause it’s so hot! ” we were so grateful! We ran out of water earlier that day! Another tender mercy! The Lord watches over us daily! 

Another tender mercy!  After District Meeting the Myers ( they are a sweet couple apart of the office staff ) they offered all the missionaries lunch! They had leftovers from a lunch they did so we had nachos! This was a tender mercy because sister Curran and I made lunch but we were still hungry cause ya know haha. Sometimes chicken and broccoli doesn’t fill us up. We are so grateful to have a wonderful office staff. We love them. They do so much for the mission. 

A member ( Sister Smith ) bought us groceries this week. She has been such a blessing. We are at her home every week for P- day. Thank you to Sister Smith! We love you! 

Miracle Time! 

While taking out the new missionaries Sister Bunker and I found Otiwaay! He is so cool! We decided to go knock on his door cause it was open! ( everyone in Kansas has storm doors… everyone does ) He was so nice. As we introduced the Book of Mormon  and invited him to church he got so excited! We got his contact information and we texted him a couple days ago and he is excited to learn more.

Another miracle that we saw this week was our lesson with Ramona. We taught her the word of wisdom. We had a fantastic lesson. Three members were there and we all talked about the blessings that we receive from living the commandments of God. She is now living the word of wisdom and gaining a testimony of it! We are so happy for her! She couldn’t come to church yesterday because she was sick. We went over after church and had another lesson with her. We felt prompted to go over the Baptismal Interview Questions, Ramona answered yes faithfully to all of them. She has committed to a date and is ready for it! She will be baptized by her son on July 15th. She is so happy and it has been a truly blessing to know her. 

We had a lesson with Herman he is an African refugee from the Congo. We met him a couple weeks ago and finally had a lesson last night with Brother Ouko who is from Kenya and came with us to translate. The Spirit was so strong as we taught the Plan of Salvation. He is praying to know these things are true. We love teaching these people. Herman’s heart has been prepared for the Gospel and it is such a blessing to be with him as the Spirit teaches all of us. 

One of my favorite scriptures is Mosiah 28:3 it says, ” Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble. ” Sharing the gospel is greatest act we can do here on earth. All of us are Heavenly Father’s children and some are lost. May we all look to those who might be lost and reach out and share the message that Christ lives and loves them. The Gospel has brought so much joy into our lives. Don’t keep it to yourself! Share it! People are looking for it. These past 13 months have been so hard and redeeming. I’m grateful for the purpose I have here to invite others to come unto Christ and that purpose will always be engraved in my heart forever and always. I know this Gospel is true. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer who loves us so much. We have Heavenly Father who blesses us with commandments that are for our benefit. We are never alone. The Gospel has been restored and we are living in times where the Gospel is in its fullness. What a blessed time to be alive. I have never been happier. I pray and would invite you all to look for the joy the Gospel has brought you and share it with others. You will bless their lives and they will bless your lives in return. I love this Gospel! I’m so excited for this week as Sister Curran and I will declare the gospel to everyone we see. I love you all! Have an incredible week.

55 | Hello!!!

This week was busy busy we had three exchanges and it’s was the week before transfers so it was crazy! But GUESS WHAT EVERYONE! SISTER CURRAN AND I ARE STAYING TOGETHER! We are so happy. Sister Curran is such a blessing to me, the Bel Aire area, and the mission! She is my best friend and I can’t express how happy and excited we are! 

We met Coy So this week! Sister Brady and I were walking down a street just talking to everyone and there was a woman mowing her lawn! We walked up to her and gave her a picture of Jesus Christ. She expressed she was from Cambodia and that her husband had died 5 months ago. She looked so tired and it was very hot outside. I looked at her and said, ” here let us mow your lawn and you just rest for minute” we finished mowing her lawn and sister Brady talked to her more about the Gospel! Her husband was baptized years ago. We introduced the Book of Mormon and testified of the Plan of Salvation. We gave her a Book of Mormon in Cambodian and we have a return appointment with her tonight and we are so excited. She is the sweetest woman. 

We had a Plan of Salvation Lesson with Ramona this week and it was amazing. Her son and his wife were there and we all bore of testimonies and it was great. She loves the Plan of Salvation and she came to church this week! Saturday night we called her and said a prayer with her! We love Ramona so much! 

Have a good week everyone! Stay positive and remember you are LOVED!

54 | Again!

Hello! I hope everyone has had a good week! This week went by so fast it was crazy! 

Tuesday night was so good! Joe Strouth entered into the waters of baptism. It was a great program and so many people came to support him! Even people from the ward he is moving into! The water was so cold ( because the hot water got turned off earlier that day… yikes! ) but he still had a great experience. We are so happy for him and excited to see him go to the temple next year. 

This week we also had Mission Leadership Council and it was a great experience. We received lots of revelation for the mission. The Spirit was so strong. I feel so humbled to be apart of the Mission Leadership Council. We also go to attend the temple ( as a mission Leadership Council )  which was a great and redeeming experience. The Spirit was so strong and it was very peaceful to be in the Lords house. I loved the revelation that we received as an MLC for the Kansas Wichita Mission. The first 4 days of June have been incredible and enlightening. The Lord is excited for this month as the Kansas Wichita Mission will baptize 100 precious souls this month. We had a 24 hour fast as a mission to bind ourselves to the Lord and promise Him that for the next 30 days ( the rest of our missions ) we will be EXACTLY OBEDIENT and give everything we have! We are so excited! Hoorah for Israel! 

 So last week I had mentioned that a member of our ward wanted us to teach his mom and we had an appointment with her yesterday! Ramona is incredible! We were able to sit down get to know her, pray with her, do How to Begin Teaching, and teach the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Spirit was incredible. She has a huge desire to be baptized. She is on date for June 24th and we are going back to visit her next Sunday but we will contact her midweek and meet with her earlier hopefully. Next time we are going to talk about how they are requirements for baptism and commandments  that God is asking us to live. We look forward to that lesson. I can’t express how amazing that lesson was. One of the most powerful lessons I have had on my mission. The Lord loves her and she has seen and unseen forces around her helping her on this journey to becoming a new creature in Christ. 

This week we went on one exchange and that was such a blessing. We felt promoted to bring both sisters up to our area and that was awesome! We split off and just worked so hard that day. We gave out at least 10-15 Books of Mormon and found so many new people to teach! We had great and powerful experiences all day long! It was so fun as we all talked to everyone we saw and testified of Jesus Christ. We got some harsh rejections but also some funny ones. Which was great! I will always remember those. 

Yesterday while in Relief Society my heart was full of gratitude for my mission. I am so grateful to be here and being learning and seeing people’s lives change through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I would invite each and everyone of you to read 2 Nephi 31 to learn what the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how you can better live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is something I will also do this week! Have a great week everyone. I love you!

52 | Miracles

We had a busy week this week but a good one! Lots of miracles and trials of faith! Here are some of the miracles! 

On Tuesday night we had a skype lesson with Joe! And we went over the baptismal questions and he surprised by telling us he wants to be baptized! We were in shock and tears. We were crying, Joe was crying, the Spirit was so strong. Then, on Thursday we had a lesson and he is having a trial of faith right now. We are keeping daily contact with him and praying he will come to a knowledge of his Redeemer once again like he has in the past. He is amazing and we know he will get through this. 

On Saturday night we had dinner in a members home and another member from the Ridgepoint ward brought a referral! It was amazing. We had Brother Ouko there to translate. Her name is Marie and she is from Congo. We taught her the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All the members bore her testimony and the Spirit was very strong. We can’t wait to meet with her again. 

Last night we had dinner with the Sant family. After dinner sister sant took us to her neighbors house and we were able to introduce the Book of Mormon to Him and testify of eternal families. His wife died a couple months ago and it was a great lesson. We are seeing him tomorrow night and we are so excited. 

It is such a blessing that these members are engaged in missionary work. We love the ward we are in and they are so fun! I’m so grateful to be here. 

This week was draining and hard but so good! Many amazing moments that will not be forgotten. I love my mission and my Savior Jesus Christ. I’m grateful to know He is with me every step of the way. I would invite you all to let the Savior walk beside you in your life. He loves you and He is with you. John 14:18 says, ” I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” 

Have a good week everyone! I love you all 🙂

51 | Happy Mother’s Day

Blog for this week: Happy Mothers Day! 

Hello! I’d just like to start off by saying THANK YOU to my amazing mother. Oh how I love you. It was incredible to see my family yesterday over the Skype call! Thank you mom for teaching me and being an example to me and helping me stay on the strait and narrow path. I’d also like to thank all of the mother figures in my life! I have many and you all have helped me so much. THANK YOU! Just remember you never know how much good you do. 

Also huge shoutout to my amazing companion. SISTER CURRAN aka one of my best friends. She brings out the best in me and everyday is a great day with her. Oh how I love her so much. Sister Curran, if your reading this…. I love you! And then you’ll hear her say, ” ditto ” HAHA! I LOVE HER! 🌺💕 

This week was good could have been better but was good! We had interviews with President McCuistion this week and we had MLC ( Mission Leadership Council ) so that was good! Sister Curran and I also had the opportunity to go on exchanges with Sister Hansen and Sister Nail! I was with Sister Nail again and that was so fun! I went to her area with her and we saw tons of miracles! 

Here is one that saw, we had just knocked on a potential investigators door but they said they needed us to come back next week! So Sister Nail and I looked around and decided to knock the door right across the street. A lady opened the door and had a suspicious look on her face. After saying who we were and introducing the Book of Mormon she began to tell us we were wrong and how she would invite us to find the truth. We kindly ended the conversation and walked away. As we were leaving my heart was full of gratitude to know that Christ lives and that The Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it is a sacred companion to the Bible. It began to rain as we walked back to the car. We then saw a couple on their porch and we went and talked to them. As we got to know them and introduced ourselves we began talking about how we have a loving Heavenly Father and a Savior, Jesus Christ who love us very much. We introduced the Book of Mormon and they gladly accepted! We also invited them to follow the example of their Savior and be baptized when they come to know the truthfulness of these things! They said yes! YAY! What a miracle! I’m so excited for Sister Nail and Sister Hansen to keep working with them in Ridgepoint! 

Joe came to church again this week! Yay! He has been to church quite a bit but has been struggling to receive his answer if the Book of Mormon is true. We are praying for him and praying that he will come to a knowledge that his Savior lives and that the Book of Mormon is true.

A lesson that I am in the processing of learning right now is the importance of relying on the Lord. Everyday I am being humbled and I am grateful for this sacred opportunity to be closer to my Heavenly Father and Savior daily. I would invite you to look for the daily ways and opportunities to come closer to your Savior and Heavenly Father. I love them. I know they live. I love my mission and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. Have an amazing week everyone. 

Ether 12:27 is my scripture for this week! It says, ” And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them. “
