2nd Companion: Sis. Hoffmeier (from Maryland)
Wowza what a week! I am so excited for Kim! She is going to be the best missionary! Already placed a book of mormon and a commitment?? Geez she's just too good! I am so proud to call her my sista!
Thank you to everyone (Aunt Kris, Lori, Heidi, Nichole) who helped my mom after losing both of her daughters for the next year and a half! You all are angels and we are so blessed to have you! Thanks to Michone for pushing through a trip for my mom and getting her away for a few days! Wow, sooooo blessed by so many!!! Thank you all for taking care of my mom!
Well last monday night we went and visited with the Bevans and also Sister Mize we showed her the new mormon message on courage. It is really good! I would suggest checking it out. It includes the story of Esther.
Tuesday we met a referral from the spanish elders. Her name is Emily, she is 17 and really nice we
shared a scripture and set up a time to come back. Then we went and visited like a bazillion people and no one was home :( So we went knocking and met some nice people. Later that night we had a lesson
with Cristy, Jamie, and Bryan, and Lawrence their dad who is now sitting in. Woot Woot! We taught the 10 commandments which is a fun lesson and also prophets. It went well, they are making progress :D.
Mom I finally got the Package!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I think it must have been in the office here at the apartment complex or something. But I finally got it and I just can't say thankyou enough. We watched Spencer's video, David & Goliath and it was the best thing of my life!! hahaha it was really fun to watch.
Wednesday we met a very nice woman named Carla. she is a Messiniacle Jew? So she believes in Christ and as him being her Savior and her Grandmother is Lds and she did her family history using our resources which was awesome but she felt that "mormon was not for me" so we left our number if she changes her mind.
Mom and Kim I thought about you all day! I am so glad Kimmi got to Peru safe and sound and is loving it! and I'm glad you are ok mom! Take it easy haha rest, you derserve it.
Thursday during companionship study we saw this mormon message all about the man who lost his expecting wife, and 2 kids to a drunk driver. wow. is all I can say. Another great one to watch it will have you in tears. Then we met a woman named Maria she is very nice, we taught her the restoration and shared a Book of Mormon with her and she said she would read it. We have an appointment with her on Thursday so we will see how that goes. Then that night we had a RS Meeting! It was so great! It was all about being grateful for today and not wishing for days ahead. It was wonderful. Later that night when I was getting ready for bed there was a cockroach in our bathroom under our light fixture. Now If It was just out and about I would just kill it but this one you would have had to pull it out and then kill it. I said na uh! I am not doing that! haha so we called the elders and bless their hearts they came and got it for us. Super sweet!
Friday we had a lesson with Emily but she was a no show :( so we went home and planned. Later that night we had a lesson with Jamie, Bryan, and Lawrence, and it was on the Word of Wisdom. It went really well, they all understood it and agreed with it. We are making headway for sure! And Jamie and Bryan are usually so quiet, like SO quiet but Cristy wasn't there this night and Jamie and Bryan actually talked! haha It was awesome!
Saturday we went knocking and visited some members. One member we visited her name is Sister Johnson. She is a litte lady from Peru and she has her house decked out for missionary work. She has a cabinet full of BOM's, pass out cards, pamphlets anything and she has a room with all the restoration pictures all ready to be taught to investigators haha... she's awesome! She also served her mission in the Bolivia, Cochabamba mission! I was like no way! She absolutely loves Bolivia. She said it is beautiful and the people there are so nice and giving!!
Sunday Cristy, Jamie, and Bryan all came to church! it was great! Then we watched the World Wide Training meeting. WOW. I loved it! the Lord is truly at the head of his church and KNOWS what is going on and what needs to happen. It was awesome. We missed the first 15 minutes, so I'm not really sure on any changes but I will watch it and let you know if any of those changes affect us.
This week is the last week for our mission President. I will miss Pres. and Sister Hall but I am excited to see the changes that will happen.
Well I love you all! The Church is true!

Mom- THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for everything! You are my rock. Well my rock right beside Christ. haha just kidding but seriously you are amazing! I know you have sent me so many packages and I am so grateful for all your sacrifices financially wise. When ever you can, no rush, could you send me my black 3/4 sleeve shirt that has like rouched sleeves? Also, one of my backpacks with thick padded straps.
The one I have is taking it's toll. Also my Daughters in my Kingdom book I think it's in my bedside table, and teachings of presidents of the church which ever one the RS is focusing on this year. I believe that is in my room as well. And my little paris necklace it's silver and has a little pearl on it too and my necklace with a harmonica on it.
THANK YOU for the money! oh my goodness you saved me! I am really trying to be smart with my money and I promise this will last a while. My hair cut set me back with the ecclesastical account. Too much hair! haha I love you! I hope you know I am praying for YOU everynight. I hope you are having such a blast with the Halli and Averi. haha I love you I love you I love you!!
Immediate Family- I would like to know when each and every one of you received a testimony of the gospel. and of Jesus Christ. Also if you served a mission, what was the biggest miracle you saw on your
