I Know That My Redeemer Lives!

Hello!!  This week was amazing!!!  Can y'all believe that this week i will have hit my 6 month mark.  ahh crazy sauce!  Its going way to fast!  im just having way to much fun being a missionary!  I love it!!  So our new companion is soo amazing!  Her name is hermana Meneses from Salt Lake City (la fabrica) and she is 19 and she is fluent already cus she is Mexican and she is just so adorable!  We are so happy to have her with us here in Chamblee.
Miracles time!!!!
Lucy: So we went and visited a less active this week.  She has a really complicated life and i was honestly really scared to go over there because i am not good at knowing what to say to people with hard situations or what to do.  So while we are in this lesson and she was talking to us, i was praying so hard for us to know what to say to her. It was so amazing because the Spirit was able to direct the conversation in a way that we were able to teach her something that she really needed to here that day.  The spirit enlightens our mind when we trust in it, we will know what we need to say.  It might not seem like much, but  like the scriptures teach us "nevertheless the Spirit of the Lord did not fail [us]." alma 4:15 i just have such a testimony of the Holy Ghost.  When we allow ourselves to be soly intruments, the holy ghost can relay the message through our mouths of what these people need to hear.  I know that to be true.

Less Actives: So we made a transfer goal as a companionship to visit ever less active member in the branch.  Wow since starting this goal, so much happiness has filled my heart meeting all of these wonderful people.  We were able to meet about 10 less active people this week, and that was a miracle.  These people are wonderful.  They are so loved by our Heavenly Father.  Im so thankful to have the privelage to see these people how Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ sees them, lost children of our Heavenly Father.  What a miracle it was to build more relationships with these great people, and Heavenly Father definitely helped us in knowing which people we needed to visit and at what time so that we could catch them at home.  Wow just wonderful!
Bernal Refferals: We have this awesome old lady in our Branch Hermana Bernal and she came out with us on team ups for like 6 hours.  We were able to do service for her a couple weeks ago, and because of that she offered to come out with us!  service is amazing and brings miracles!  So anyway, we went and taught a few of our investigators with her and the lessons went really great!  Then we were getting ready to take her back home, and she asked if we had more appointments.  We hadnt had any set appointments only finding so we asked her why.  Then she said well i just wanted to take you around to meet some of my friends if you guys want.  A FREAKING DUH!!!  of course we want to visit your friends!!  she took us around to a bunch of her friends and we taught them and made return appointments.  Wow that was a huge blessing and miracle to us!!!  I know that without the help of members, we could not do this work.  They are key!

The Things!!!!
1. So when we are at members houses for dinner its kind of been awkward without Hermana Gallardo because me and Hermana Bringhurst are bomskee in spanish when it comes to Gospel talk, but normal everyday talk is kind of awkward for me still haha i mean you can only say "how is your family doing? and how was your day?" so many different times and ways and then it just gets awkward and i dont know what else to say!  BUT, we figured it out!!!  After we ask them how they are doing we just start talking about our people we are teaching!  Then the conversation is booming!  BAM!  no more awkward dinner conversations for us!

I just want you all to know how much I love being a missionary!!  it is seriosly the best and i am so happy all the time!  i love wearing this name tag and representing my savior 24/7.  This is the best calling i could ever have.  "And thus they were instruments in the hands of God in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth, yea, to the knowledge of the their Redeemer.  And how blessed are they!  for they did publish peace; they did publish good tidings of good; and they did declare unto the people that the Lord reigneth." Mosiah 27:36-37.  While in my personal study this week i read this scripture and tears filled my eyes thinking about how blessed i am.  oh no, here come the tears again haha.. I mean it with all my heart when i say that i feel so blessed to be able to Represent my Savior and be an insturment to declare good news to all of Heavenly Fathers Children.  how blessed am i.  "I know that my Redeemer lives.  What comfort this sweet sentence gives.  He lives, he lives who once was dead.  I know, that my Redeemer lives."  Have an amazing week.  I love you all so much!
