Week #24 - February 9th, 2015

Hello (:
Sister Sughroue & Sister Sindlykova
Hope everyone had a great week! It has been pretty warm here lately.... hopefully we will not get snow, but I probably just jinxed it. ooops. It was a pretty eventful week with lots of fun stuff!
Tuesday: Welfare Square... lots of tours and cheese and chocolate milk. so that was fun.
Wednesday: Dad and Terri came for a visit! We went on a tour around Temple Square and then went to the roof for dinner. It was soooo goood! The best meal I have had on my mission thats for sure! hahaha. It was really good to see them and

show them what my mission is like because its so different!
Thursday: We had an awesome Lesson with our investigator Liz and President Loos (he is in the mission presidency) as a member present. She is catholic and he was a very devote catholic before he joined the church so he helped answer a lot of her questions concerning the restoration of the Church! Our investigator Joseph met with us on the square and told us he decided to stop smoking all together after we had a big talk last week about how the spirit can not be with us if we are taking part in harmful things.... and because he has such a strong desire to feel the spirit he quit! And we got a new investigator!
Friday: We were able to teach Belgianka and Alice (79 years old) and really sincerely wants to learn about the church but has bad health.
Saturday: In the morning we had 2 youth conference programs back to back each session had about 80 youth. We do the living Christ Program and where they all read the document, write their testimonies on the back and we invite a few to come up and share along with us missionaries share ours. It is such a spiritual experience, and the youth of the church are so amazing and have such strong testimonies! We focus on our personal relationship with the savior and how we can come closer to him.

    Then I went on Exchange with my district leader that day, Sister Chen from Taiwain which worked out perfectly because we gave a tour to a group of Chinese exchange students from BYU that Karina and Lela Hill brought! It was fun to see them and had a great tour (: We sang I am a child of God for them in English/ Chinese in the  Tabernacle.

Sunday: Dad and Tyler came to our ward with 200 sisters... hahahah. People weren't sure if they were my family or investigators. Everyone kept saying how much Tyler and

I look alike, and now we have a bunch that want to marry into the family hahahah. Sundays sacrament meeting was one of the best we have had! The Chinese Sisters all did a musical number and sang Army of Helaman the spirit was so strong and  everyone cried..... Then president announced that we will become an Ipad mission by the end of this month!!!!! So awesome! Every missionary will have an ipad(:
 We went to music and the spoken word after! 
Later that day we were walking by the flag pole and my comp stopped to talk to this man named Matt, we had a really great conversation with him about God and how he loves us, the restoration and Temples! We took him around and got to teach him a lot in just one tour! He got a BOM and will be reading it. He is awesome and is another new investigator!

This week my companion and I worked really hard to reach the goals we set at the beginning of the week. Before we set goals we pray about it and know this is what the Lord has in store for us this week if we work hard and are diligent in finding! We were able to accomplish our goals as we prayed for opportunities to do so through out the week.... the Lord helped us cross paths and get in contact with sincere people this week! I feel so blessed to be able to help these people we have met on the square and over the phone develop a personal relationship with the Savior. It is amazing the difference we see in people when they experience Gods love for themselves.
Belgianka our investigator told us this was her favorite scripture this week mine too!

Alma 38:2 " And now, Sister Sughroue , I trust that I shall have great joy in you, because of your steadiness and your faithfulness unto God; for as you have commenced in your youth to look to the Lord your God, even so I hope that you will continue in keeping his commandments; for blessed is he that endureth to the end."

Hope you all have a great week <3
Much Love, 
Sister Sughroue
