“Because He Lives!!!”

Hey Ya'll!!!
I am so grateful for the opportunity I had this week to attend the General Conference Women's broadcast. I was so touched by the strong spirit and testimonies each person shared about the importance of the family, and a spirit centered home. It made me think of how I want my future home to be like. As I have been on my mission for 6 months this Wednesday I have realized some attributes I want to gain and take on when I am a wife and mother. I want to be a covenant keeping daughter of my Heavenly Father and I want to be able to bring the next generation of His children up in righteousness. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to be on the Lord's mission to see so many of his children and their different lives. I learn so much more from all of them then I could ever teach them!!!!! I know that this church is the true church here on this earth today and I know that as this next week we get to hear the Prophet and his apostles speak we will be able to understand and receive guidance for our plan that Heavenly Father has for each of us.

Hermana Fastido & Hermana Rawlins at the Cathedral
District P-day! We played volleyball, ships and sailors, the name game mixed with signs, and ping pong! It was so fun!!! We saw the girls, of course, and had a good lesson with them about the Savior.  Following the lesson we laughed our heads off. Sister Hunt laughed so hard that orange juice came out her mouth.  It was h i l a r i o u s!!!!!!

Sister Hunt was sick last night, but didn't wake me up, the stinker!!! I feel badly.  She was really pale, so we took it easy this morning. We went out and had lunch with Summer. That was nice!! We talked about the temple; I love the temple. I wish we could go more, but I am grateful for the opportunity I have to help those that are alive do their own work:)  Brittany and Tim had all of us over for dinner. Sister Hunt didn't feel good. We took cute Kathryn Fuluvaka out teaching with us to Annika tonight! Seriously, I decided we are going to be best buddies when I get home, she is awesome!!!!!

Today we had zone training! It was about the “Because He Lives” initiative and tracting!!!! After training we went to Famous Dave's for lunch with Roger and the Bloomington Sisters! After that we went on exchanges. I was with Sister Jenkins here in Lake Nokomis. The “Because He Lives” video is awesome. Ya'll should share it on social media!!!!!!!!

Shamrock Grill & Pub March 30, 2015
We went to a “pass off lesson” with Elder Ford and Fuller. We got there early and watched the cutest 5 bunnies hopping around. We were dying! Then we taught 1 Nephi 8, colored it and had a competition. hahaha I didn't win....

Saturday March 28, 2015
We moved into the Elders “old” apartment. They cleaned it up really good. Moving is stressful though!!!! We went to the Women's conference; it kicked butt!!!!!   My mattress, which was Elder Ford's old mattress has elbow marks from him praying! I was falling into the little divots all night!  I can see a strip of the stop light from the street and I watch it every night hahaha!   I say “Green, SLOW DOWN”, and then Sister Hunt said “STOP”!!! I was like good job; its red!! Hahaha, I love it!!!

"Minnesotan Famous Jucy Lucy Burger!"
While we were in Minneapolis, we saw 4 guys handcuffed on the ground by the cops. It was great!! We made the Elders switch our mattresses out with our old ones, so that was good. We went with the Stacey’s and Summer to ‘Lamb of God’ by the Minnesota Mormon Chorale. It was so good!!! But the best part was, I saw my buddies from the MTC!!! Elder Esquivel, Elder Oliver, Elder Lowe, and Sister Turner!  It was almost the whole district!!!!  I flippin’ love those guys!!!!!
Monday AKA TODAY March 30:  We had a Sisters Zone P-day. President and Sister Forbes took us to the St. Paul Cathedral. After we went to a place called the Shamrock Grill and Pub to have a Minnesotan famous ‘Jucy Lucy’ Burger!!! It was so fun and cool!!! We are going to be with Summer tonight!!!
