First, my heart and prayers go out to the people affected by the tragedy in Manchester. Our President texted us Tuesday morning letting us know and I just felt like crying. But I am grateful for the knowledge of the plan of salvation and to know that this life is not the end and we will be able to see our loved ones again.

So we got transfer calls and I am leaving Pontefract already!! So crazy!! Sister Zurita is going to be training a new sister and I'm going to York to serve with one of my best mission friends, Sister Tautkus!!!!!! I am so beyond excited!! I am really sad to be leaving Pontefract already, though. This week was amazing! We got two new investigators named Claire and Gareth and we scheduled Andrew for baptism!!! We took a member with us to the lesson with Andrew and he was perfect to bring! He's a recent convert and has such love for the gospel! It was amazing!! But I know Sister Zurita and this new sister will take great care of them and I will be able to come back when they get baptised because I won't be going too far. :)

That's about it for this week. I hope you all have a great week!! Love you and miss you!!

We chased down the ice cream truck for these.

All the spider's are coming out of hibernation now and I have had to kill at least 2 spiders a day this week. I'm sick of it. I make Sister Zurita kill the ones on the ceiling though because I have this fear that they will jump on my face right before I kill it. Or that it's corpse will fall on my face after I have killed it.

Other than that this week has been good! We had another lesson with Andrew which was really nice because he was a lot more open and accepting to the answers we gave him to his questions. And I'm sure that's because he has been reading the Book of Mormon. We lost contact with Jacquelyn for a bit but then miraculously bumped into her at the bus station send she explained that she has had a really hard week. So we went back to her house with her and we talked to her for a bit. She said she was praying the night before for help and she believes Heavenly Father lead us to her that day to help her. Heavenly Father is pretty fantastic.😊

A cool experience I had this week: we had a Sister's meeting and the theme was based on the Young Woman's values. I was assigned to give a little instruction on individual worth. While Sister Chantry was giving her instruction on Divine Nature I was thinking a bit about what I might say and a thought came into my head that said "I don't want you to feel down about yourself or think that you aren't good enough to do this. Because I've been through it and it's not something I want you to have to go through" and then I thought "oh yeah that would be a nice thing to add to say to them." But for some reason I was getting so emotional when that thought came to my head and I was so confused why I was getting so emotional over that thought. Then I heard another voice that said "because it's for you. That thought was from me to you." And then I just about lost it which was really inconvenient because I had to give an instruction after that. But I felt so overwhelmed with love from my Saviour in that moment. I knew in that moment that Jesus Christ knows my doubts and has felt the same way so He knows exactly how I feel. I know I have talked about this before but I will talk about it over and over again because it's what I have the strongest testimony of. The Saviour's love is real and for everyone. Turn to Him for peace and He will give you it.

I love you and miss you all!! Have a fantastic week!

Hello everyone!! This week was so good!! We found two new investigators!! One named Andrew and one named Jacquelyn. Both are so great and I am so excited to help them on their journey towards Christ!! A cool thing about Jacquelyn was the elders gave her a Restoration Pamphlet and she said she carries it with her everywhere because it helps her feel protected and safe!! Ah she is so sweet!!

Then we went to York for exchange on Wednesday. I was with Sister Connolly and I love her to bits. We just laughed the whole exchange. Then, of course, yesterday I was able to do what all of your Facebook feeds were full of. TALK TO MY FAMILY. It was a good day😊

I just want to thank all the women in my life who have been a mother figure to me. I love you all and I hope you all had an amazing day.

For my mom, she soars above all others. She lifts me up in times of need. She's a pretty fly chick. I jump for joy when I see her. She has glided me through tough times. I will fall into her arms when I see her again. I wouldn't spin into any other mother's arms because I love mine. PARKOUR!!!!!

Love you and miss you all!!

Hello everyone!!

This week was really good!! There isn't much to update because we are still looking for solid people to teach so I want to talk about something else.

This week we had Zone Conference and there were quite a few new missionaries and I talked to a few of them. I could see their potential and fire they had. A lot of them were scared and asked a lot of questions I asked older missionaries when I first came out. But they had so much enthusiasm and they were just so ready to serve and give everything to their Heavenly Father. I felt that I had lost that enthusiasm for a while which made me a bit upset and frustrated at myself because I remember older missionaries commenting on the fire and enthusiasm I had. I went to Zone Conference with a prayer that I would get that motivation back. Seeing those missionaries helped kick-start it again. But it didn't end there. So many times while we were choosing streets to knock I would find streets with names that would remind me of home or past areas and I would choose them but I was worried Sister Zurita wasn't going to just because they were personal to me. But then she did! And I have found D&C 100:5-6 to be so true as I have prayed more for the courage to stop people and be given what to say to them. And so many other times that He has answered me. This week has just been a testimony builder that Heavenly Father is so aware of me. He is listening to my prayers. He wants me to give my best and I want to as well but He isn't going to make me do it alone.

I just want all of you to know that Heavenly Father is so aware of you. He's aware of your wants and needs. He listens to you and loves you. Never give up. He can give you help! I love this Gospel so much and I love the power of Jesus Christ's Atonement. I love my Heavenly Father so much!!

Have a great week!! Love you and miss you all!!

To be honest I don't remember a lot from this week so this will probably be a bit short but I have pictures so it's fine. We got a new investigator this week!! Her name is Kristine and she is so cute!! We taught her the plan of salvation and we got her to pray at the end of the lesson which was super cool!! We've mostly been doing a lot of visits with members and finding.

There are quite a lot of hills here so my bottom half is getting real firm. Hahahaha ahh.....

I really can't remember anything else I'm so sorry. Zone Conference is tomorrow so that's exciting. Oh! There is a member family who has taken us to York the past few days and they have a nearly two year old boy and he reminds me so much of Tristan (my nephew). And every time we get in the car with him he just starts crying but his parents tell us every time we leave he goes "sisters! Where sisters?" So really he loves us he's just playing hard to get.

Anyway, hope you have a great week everyone!! Love you all!! xx
