Transfer News: I'm Going Back to El Paso!

Happy Monday! Well these last six weeks have been nothing but calm to say the least. I've only been in Las Cruces for a short six weeks and now I'm being transferred back down to El Paso! This time I'll be working farther east in El Paso, opening up a new ward: The Montwood Ward! That area was covered by the Montana Vista Ward but is now being split into two wards! I am so excited to be training and working in this new ward!

This week we had a cool miracle! We had dinner with a less active sister in our ward on Tuesday - she made posole! A traditional Hispanic soup it is so good! She has several members of her extended family living in her home and so it's hard to tell who is who or who is related to who. Her family did other things around the house while we ate; occasionally grabbing food here and there or wandering in the kitchen. One of the younger girls about our age came and sat with us at the table and we started talking about her and her family. Eventually we started talking about the gospel and she had such a strong interest it took us aback a little bit at this point. Then about five minutes into our discussion she just goes, "When can I be baptized?" We about fell out of our chairs and kept reassuring her as nicely as we could that she didn't have to make a hasty in her decision. But she is so prepared beyond belief it is incredible!

I'm now being transferred to another area - but I am so grateful I was able to meet Laura and be a tiny part of her conversion. I hope that someday I can come back and visit and continue to help her and myself grow in conversion and testimony.

President Guffey also announced that they have set up a Mission Facebook Page titled: "Missionaries of the Albuquerque, New Mexico Mission 2016 - 19". They will be updating it occasionally with pictures and events from the mission so feel free to look it up if have a Facebook!

I've started reading the Book of Acts in the New Testament and I love it so much! Finishing the Book of John really made me appreciate the Apostles more and understand their work and ministry. I loved reading story in which Christ admonishes us to "Feed My Sheep." Watch the bible video it's so good!: https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/2014-01-025-feed-my-sheep?category=bible-videos-the-life-of-jesus-christ&lang=eng

Well I'm excited to have another beginning on this adventure! I'll write you next week from the sunny side of El Paso! And introduce you to my new companion!

​Doctrine and Covenants Section 10, Verse 3-5: ​

3 Nevertheless, it is now restored unto you again;therefore see that you are faithful and continue on unto the​ ​finishing of the remainder of the work of translation as​ ​you have begun.

4 Do not run faster or labor more than you have strength​ ​and means provided to enable you to translate; but be​ ​diligent unto the end.

5 Pray always, that you may come off conqueror; yea, that​ ​you may conquer Satan, and that you may escape the​ ​hands of the servants of Satan that do uphold his work.

​Hope you have a great week! Stay cool!

Love,
Hermana Bigley
