Dear Family & Friends,

      This week Pres. Forbes sent us an inspirational email on obedience. I know that as I have strived to be exactly obedient that my mission has been blessed. I know that the Savior set the perfect example for us to follow Him and to be the best missionaries we can possibly be. I know I have a long way to go but I am getting closer each and every day. I pray that I can be as exactly obedient as possible while I am on my mission. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve my Heavenly Father's precious children here in Minnesota. I want to do everything I can to help them come closer to Him. I understand that I can only do that when I am being the best I can be. This week has been full of fun things. I am so grateful that I have been able to come on my mission and have fun while doing the Lord's work!  It is work, it's exhausting and sometimes difficult but it is the most rewarding thing I have ever done!  I am so grateful to have a wonderful companion like Sister Hunt to make me laugh every day and feel the Spirit while doing it. I have honestly been so blessed to have such wonderful companions! I am so grateful that Heavenly Father has allowed me to serve in the best mission, with the best President, best areas, and best companions ever!!! I am truly blessed.
"At Church March 15, 2015"

     The highlight for lessons this week would have to be our 12 year old investigator. She is so prep
ared to be baptized on the 20th! We taught her The Gospel of Jesus Christ this week. The Spirit was so strong!  Sister Showley came with us to teach her. She was able to share her testimony with her. Members honestly make such a huge difference in lessons!  When I return from my mission I am going to go teaching with the missionaries, because having that 3rd witness brings such a strong spirit into the lesson. It also totally helps our ‘gators connect with the ward even better!

     So I don't have a ton more time today because it is ZONE P-DAY BABY!!!!!! We will be watching “The Saratov Approach” as a Zone. Then we are doing a selfie scavenger hunt and eating of course! Then later we will be going to see the “girlies!” You asked for more info. so to finish, I am going to give you the highlights from the past week.
Here we go!
