Hello! I'll keep this one short. I would like to focus on the Atonement
and how important it is. I have meet so many people on my mission who
know that Jesus Christ was resurrected, meaning that he came back from
the dead but with a perfect body. I know that the same will happen to
us, and we will all recieve a perfect body just like Jesus Christ.
Hello Everyone! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day! These
past few weeks have been interesting, not quite Louisiana interesting,
but missionary interesting. I learned how to do the "missionary stretch"
or as I call it the "Elder Stretch." Basically you just stretch up your
arms and do some funny stretches. Sister S, who informed us on this,
said that we can eat a solid 3-5 more bites of food this way! I'm not
sure if it's the most healthy thing to do, but it kind of works lol.
got a Bible referral, but they went uncontacted for a few weeks because
they were sent to the wrong sisters, so we went down there and tracted
her street. But this was no ordinary street! It was full of wonderful
people who were really willing to hear the gospel! One sister was just
released from the hospital that day after a bad car accident, so we went
back the next day and helped her wash her hair. I didn't know that it
took so many products to straighten hair "naturally." It was funny
because long story short, my companion bleached my hair blond. I was
really worried at first because it was so different, but it is growing
on me and completely changed the chemistry of my hair (for very good
Last P-day, we went to Bass Pro
Shop, and we meet Fred, a ginormous Alligator Snapping Turtle. We also
ran into another set of missionaries investigator who invited us to his
church. Then we also ran into another 2 members of the church who had
meet when i was serving in Amite. One of them was celebrating her last
day of work before she started her mission.
Love you all!!!
P.S HAPPY EASTER!!!!
Bass Pro Shop. I tried to give a pass a long card to a manican.
Baton Rouge at night. This guys has good friends who didn't let him drive home himself. I still don't know how I feel about it, but it's hilarious.

Hello Everyone! This week we
have been working on just getting investigators. This area is so different from
both of my previous areas, we have been switching it up a lot! We have been
trying to find the less-active members of the church, but most of them haven’t
been answering their door, so we have been tracting around their street. We
meet this guy, who was Catholic, like most people in this area, and after we
knew that he was about to turn us away, I offered to help him with his family
history. He said that his wife had done a lot of work and he invited us inside
and he showed us picture of his family and of the country where their ancestors
were from (it turned out to be a cute and tiny island near the Dominican
Republic). So Sister Nelson gave him our number, so that he could give it to
his wife and we left.
We gave a church and temple grounds tour to T,
our one investigator. I feel so blessed to be right next to the temple! Even
though he didn't go to church the next day, it was still a neat experience.
Apparently Sister Nelson had tried to see this
one less-active family before, but they kept rescheduling, and usually that
means that they aren't that they aren't ready yet, so we went to their door,
uninvited with a cantaloupe, and they welcomed us right in! They seemed to have
strong factual testimonies of our prophet, but they wouldn't come to church. So
we tried to help them out and told them that they needed to act on their faith
in order to receive an answer about whether or not they should come back to
church. Then they gave us a case of water, which was a huge blessing, because
we were about to run out! Our goal this week, is to watch General Conference
with them! I am really excited for General Conference this weekend!! I know
GREAT things are going to be said and the Spirit will testify of the truth of
it all!! I know that the Prophet, President Monson, or one of his Apostles will
answer your questions that you have about LITERALLY ANYTHING. I am really
