Week #67 - December 8th, 2015

Hello Friends and Family!
Jamming on the uke, sunny winter days

Brother Ernie our recent convert! 
        Such a special week for our investigator Earnest, from Washington. He first met missionaries on chat and we had been teaching him over the phone. He is asweet man, we got to skype his baptism on Friday. Later that night he called us and told us how good he felt after being baptized, and said, "You can call me Brother Ernie now". hahaha we love him!

We got to attend the Christmas Devotional with Micah (our investigator) and his girlfriend Janna on Sunday. When he walked into the conference center for the first time his eyes just lit up with amazement.The talks were amazing, I loved Elder Bednars as I
Christmas Devotional with Janna and Micah (our investigator)
had just recently studied about Samuel the Lamanite in the Book of Mormon! Holidays are fun and exciting, but let us not forget the reason we really celebrate. Have a Christ Centered Christmas, he is the greatest Gift to all mankind. He is the source of all light, life and hope. We are so blessed to have this gospel, a gift we can give back to the Savior is to share it with those around us! 

Our zone is experiencing many miracles with baptisms this transfer, some sisters have been calling former investigators and finding out they got baptized! This is my

Thanks Jenna Koford!
last week with Sister Vasi, we keep trying to convince president but he laughs everytime.... hahaha o well. We can never stop laughing, we made up a song about the Christmas lights... still in the process but we send a video shortly.  With all the couples on the square we found the perfect scripture to share with them... "  ¶Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two stand together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?" hahaha they just laugh, or some feel awkward, most of the guys like it.  Shortest transfer ever so sad, but we are life long friends. On monday we have transfer conference and will get the big news. I will most likely be training a new zone leader but we will see.

    Wrapping it up with the most amazing miracle. We were standing up by the Christus (during Christmas its way crowded)and a sweet lady named Elida from Brazil came up to me with tears in her eyes and said, "I was sitting down over there and I felt like God really wanted me to come ask you to pray for me" I almost started to cry.... We sat down and got to know her story and said a pray with her. She introduced us to her children and husband too, she was so excited to meet us! haha Turns out about 1 year ago she was almost baptized in Brazil but couldnt because her husband and her aren't legally married, and he doesnt want to be. That is the only thing that stopped her, she knows its all true! She came back to SLC for an english program with her students and felt as she was sitting there that God is telling her again this is right and she needs to be apart of it. She said I will need to be strong and pray for a miracle to help her husband, but she will try! We got her info and will be teaching her over the phone. God always has a plan for his children, his timing is perfect, she was led back to his church! Miracles on Temple Square... they happen everyday.

Much love,
