The Best is Yet To Be!

"The past is to be learned from but not lived in. We look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes. And when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us, the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead and remember that faith is always pointed toward the future. Faith always has to do with blessings and truths and events that will yet be effiicacious in our lives." Elder Holland

I have learned so much and I have loved this work, and I will forever be grateful for this experience. I love you alland I am excited to see you, you are my silver lining! I am going to put on my smile and dry up these tears because "The best is yet to be"

Behold my soul delighteth in the things of the Lord: And my heart pondereth continually upon the things which I have seen and heard!

I know with all my heart that this gospel is true. Everytime I bear testimony of these things, I know without a doubt, they are true, I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God called to restore the church again upon the earth. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON! I have seen the Gospel change lives. I have seen the light of Christ glow in investigators eyes as they realize they are children of a Heavenly Father who loves them. I love my Savior Jesus Christ, this work would be impossible with out him. I will miss wearing his name everyday, but I will enjoy bearing testimony of him for the rest of my life! This world does need the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is a happiness that comes from the Gospel that can not be found anywhere else. It has been a priviledge for me to share this truth!
I love you all so much and I'm grateful for all your love, support, prayers, letters etc! Thank You!

I love being a missionary!

One of our investigators wanted to go see the temple. He loved it! It was a cold day! A member took these pictures, gave us two copies so we could send one to our moms! Have a great day! Dios te bendiga!

I LOVE being a missionary!

My testimony of the Savior and His atonement has grown so much! I love this time of year because of the focus on Jesus Christ and His birth. You can feel the spirit of Jesus Chirst all around. I love being a missionary and having the opportunity to share my testimony with others. Yo se con todo mi corazon sin duda que esta es la iglesia de Dios. Yo se que JesuChristo es mi Salvador. Me encanta este evangelio yo se es verdad! Thanks for all your love and support!

Christmas 2009!

This past year went by so fast! I don't know where the time goes! You can feel the magic of Christmas in California, the only thing we are missing is the snow, but we do have the FOG! I am companions with a girl from Tonga, she has been praying to see snow. The other day we were on our way home from an appointment and we randomly pulled into a parking lot. Let me tell you it was a miracle! We saw 2 piles of SNOW! We couldn't belive it! We had a container in the trunk so we filled it up with snow and took it to Sis Fangupo! I threw the first snowball and that started a snowball fight!

Going to Coloma

President and Sister Jardine took some of us to Coloma. It is an old gold mining place. We panned for gold, and played horseshoes. I was the champ and won these M&M's.
This is a picture of all us that went to Coloma. Everyone gets to go up before they go home.
What a crew!

We LOVE SISTER Luncheons!

We had a temple tour within our Zone. We had 170 people attending.. Every language was represented including Hmong, Cambodian, Laotion, English and SPANISH! There were 3 tours, one in English, two in Spanish. We ate dinner then had an amazing baptism! 4 people were baptized! The church is at the end of Temple Hill. The event was well organized and everyone did their part! It was great! This picture is of me, my comps and one of our investegators.
