Confusing blog update (August 31. 2015) 

Not much to say this week. We had mission leadership council this pastwednesday and pretty much got chastised on how we teach. So now if we are giving a lesson on the restoration we have to use the pamphlet and only teach it in 7 minutes… Yup. We had 2 general authorities come down and chastise us. So that was a fun 8 hour meeting.

However this week we taught a lot of people. I cant tell you how much sister arce and i love each other. Its crazy. Sister arce is pretty cool though. She got baptized almost 2 years ago. Her family doesnt support her decision, so sister arce doesnt know a lot about the gospel well actually she knows more than me. She teaches me a lot. Shes just super awesome. I love her. And its super awesome shes from new mexico!!! Once in a lifetime friendship right there.

Well i guess this blog is just going to be about how much i love mycompanion. But hope you understand my love for sister arce.
Have a great week!!

hey everyone!
This week like all others was crazy. We were crazy busy.

Last Sunday we had 2 investigators come to church… 40 minuteslate…. stayed for only 15 minutes of sacrament. We thought they weregoing to stay the rest of church because they showed up 40 minuteslate…. well nope. They said that they didnt like church. WHAT?!?!?!?Ya. It was really interesting. So we were supposed to meet with themthis week, but they had a birthday party and etc. but they said theyhave some questions about the church… Because they saw somthingsonline. So we have an appointment with them tonight. That will begreat.

But this week. Wow. So Sister Arce and i are really good friends. Wetalk about New Mexico a lot. We were talking about Blakes Lotaburgerthis morning before studies. Haha. But i think we’ve got the fire. Weare really working on faith. Faith in all things. The beginning of theweek we said (more like a pump up talk) “OK! WE NEED FAITH. WE AREGOING TO GO OUT THERE TALK TO EVERYONE! INVITE THEM TO BE BAPTIZED!AND THEN BAPTIZE THEM!!!” And then we figured out how we were going to do that…haha.. By talking to everyone and being bold. So this whole week we did great. We did our very best. We had faith. We found a lot of people, we invited a lot people to be baptized and to come to church! We were sooo excited for Sunday to see (about 7 people to church). We called them multiple times to help them get to church and everything. They said “we are getting dressed…” Or “we are on our way”…. But did they show up to church? Nope. After that experience we felt very discouraged throughout the remainder of the day. We worked really hard through the week but had no success Sunday. It was rough. But i continuously told myself “heavenly father knows we tried our best! It may not show in our numbers but he knows!” So that was mostly our week. Ha. We went on 2 exchanges with the sisters in thezone. Its interesting to see how others teach. There was one sister that literally pushed me out of my comfort zone. I was a little frustrated. So in Conway there is a University. Its UCA. And her and her companion have that area… So we went to talk to people we went on the campus and she literally made me sing. So this is how it went… We walk down this street and we will see someone to talk to so then we talk to them and she will say “we are sister missionaries for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. Can we sing you a song” and most of them said yes (DANG NABBIT!) and so then she would start singing the spirit of god and the. Id have to sing it…. I sang to a total of 9 college kids my age and we got 0 investigators out of it. So i said “lets not waste our time anymore….” SO AWKWARD! anyways. That was my crazy week. Love you all!

Alrighttttt. So. Most important news. Im getting transferred. Mycompanion sister farr has been out only 6 weeks but now shes going to

train! Im a proud mama. Ive had 2 of my babies train.
So this week… Hmm i hate typing out what happened because so much

happens each week.
Well we found some super elect people. Surprisingly we taught the plan

of salvation, and we were really bold maybe a little too bold and we

told them that they had to be baptized in the church to be able to

reach the celestial kingdom. And you know what…. They were a little

stand offish but the spirit worked with them and they want to still be

baptized. We just gotta get them married and have them quit smoking

then they are done. Soooo no baptism any time soon.
So our investigator Ronnie is blind. But he loves us! His attitude

about life is the greatest. But there is a lady that comes from a

massage clinic and gives $5 facials and massages for 30 minutes. So

Ronnie was like “my little angels!! I bought y’all a massage so go get

one,.” So we awkwardly got massages… We are still confused whether

that was allowed we haven’t had a firm answer…
Uhhh the elders and us are sharing an investigator.. Well its a couple

but we are sharing them and they have a raccoon… I held it a couple

of weeks ago. Butttt the elders held him this week and pretty sure

they got rabies… Ill send pictures.
Also. We went to one of our really cool progressing investigators

home…. And found this note on the door… All we could do was laugh

because it was her husband that wrote it and he has terrible hand

writting… Ill send a picture of that too.
Well ill let you all know where ill be this up coming transfer….
Love yall!!
