"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."
-Alma 5:45-46,48-49
"Come unto Christ and be perfected in him and deny yourselves of all ungodliness."

Happy 2016!

Happy New Years! Its only day four of 2016! Can you believe it!! It’s
going by so fast already! ;) haha, nah just kidding. This year has
been great so far though!

This week was interesting. I reflected a lot on good ol’ 2015 and I am
not gonna lie, it was a great year; one that will probably make the
books as one of my most favorite years of my life. Besides meeting the
raddest people ever at BYUI, and all the adventures I had with them,
and getting my mission call, and actually starting my mission, this is
my favorite year, because I personally found how to come closer to
Jesus Christ. There were many things that I struggled with before
coming out on my mission, as everyone does, but I am so happy that I
know how to handle those struggles now, and it’s so easy to get
through! It’s because of Him :) Every progression I make in my life I
give all credit to Him, because I am weak and I would be so lost
without Him. So I am here on my mission for Him, and there is a quote I
really like that I recently heard, "This is the beginning of a new
day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it- or
use it for good, but what I do today is important because, I am
exchanging a day of my life for it! When tomorrow comes this day will
be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded for it.
I want it to be gain and not loss; good and not evil; success and not
failure, so that I shall not regret the price that I have paid for
it." (Dr. H. Wilson)

Each day that we live is precious, it is a gift, and I am not going to waste it worrying about the past or the future.  I am going to be learning from the past, working hard now, to reach my goal for my future.

Some updates on my lovely Glendale 2nd area- transfer calls were
Saturday and Sister Ballard and I will be staying here another
transfer. I’ve been in Glendale as long as I have been out. We're
giving Maria a break :( We'll see how she’s doing in a couple of weeks.
Kevin is still amazing! He bore his testimony at church so that was
good and fun... he mainly just gave an announcement about his baptism
in two weeks because we had to move it for his surgery and sat down,
so we'll work on that one with him :) Gigi and Justine are doing
great! They've been willing to attended some other baptisms, and I
think we are making some progress on their concerns to be baptized.

That’s pretty much it for this week though!
Love you!
