Friends and Family!

Hhaha so..this has been some of the hardest and some of the absolute BEST weeks of my life!!!! I love trials so much! I love how they give me the opportunity to turn to the Lord and feel Him lifting and carrying and strengthening me. I love how much He teaches me. I love the person He helps me to become. We have had a whole lot of opposition, but through it all we have seen MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE! :) I just know without a doubt that this is the Lord's work. The Lord's work can not be stopped, it rolls forth like a "stone cut out of the mountain without hands" (Daniel 2:44-45) I feel SO blessed to be a missionary and have this opportunity to serve the Lord. I feel so blessed to have the Gospel in my life. I feel so blessed to have this time to share it with everyone around me and see their lives change.
One of these is Brandon:) We have been teaching him for a while now and he is GETTING BAPTIZED THIS SATURDAY!! He is so ready and so excited to follow the example of the Savior and enter into this covenant with His Father in Heaven. I wish you could all have been there to see the gospel bring so much hope and joy into his life. Such a transformation...he now realizes who he is--a child of God! He realizes that anything that he has done, any challenges in his past doesn't make him the person that he is. The atonement has truly brought a light into his life. It is so humbling to see him make those changes in his life. One of my favorite parts of being a missionary is at the end of the lessons when we ask the investigator to pray. So many sacred moments of hearing Brandon ask the Father to help him be a "forever follower" and thanking him for learning about the commandments, and thanking him for how happy living them has made him, and how "it is [his] honor to follow the commandments". I am so inspired by all these great people..they are the ones teaching me! These are the moments you live for!! I'm just so happy :) :)
I LOVE ALL OF YOU! Feliz Cinco De Mayo! haha
