One year!!!

​This has been a week. We are working really hard and Satan has been working really hard on us. I hope that we can see a little more success next week. It has been really HOT so not very many people are out side and we are not allowed to tract so it has been... fun... ahah :) 
Well. I hit my year mark and it was CRAZY! It goes by so fast! Gosh. I just want it slow down. But yeah. This has been a week. Not much happened. We went to Stake conference though. That was fun! I got to see all of my WEST CHESTER/ MASON friends. It was AWESOME! I loved that.  People actually remembered me. I was suprised! But yeah. I have to go. Sorry this is so short. But I love you all!

It isn't work it is FUN!!!

Hello Everyone! 
It is great to hear from you again. This week has been good :) It has been so cool to see miracle after miracle. Heavenly Father has His hands in the work.  Heavenly Father knows what He is doing. It has been so cool to realize that whatever I choose to do I know that Heavenly Father will consecrate my efforts :) 
What makes me think of this the most this week was one event. So on Wednesday Sister Fausett and I were given the assignment to go to the store and get Sister Low, a sister in the zone, a birthday card for her birthday on Friday. So we went to the store on our dinner break. While we were at the store a guy came up to us and was like, Hey are you Mormon? and we were like... Yes... Are you? and He said yes. He had just recently moved to Cincinnati and couldn't find the Church of anything. So we gave him the information and he came to church on Sunday! It was so cool! We went to the store at the perfect time to meet this guy. 
I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for every moment of our lives. He wants to help us and He loves us. He wants us to be a part of His work. The elect are all around us. We jsut have to talk to everyone and the elect will show some interest. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel. I know there are people all around us ready to listen to the gospel.
Have a great week! 
I love you!
P.s. The card we got was AWESOME! Sister low is from scottland so I got her a Brave card that played scottish music. She loved it. It was awesome. :)

ood morning everyone :)
I hope you all had a great week. I know I did. It was so crazy amazing. We reached so many of our goals and exceeded a lot of them too. :) It was just really cool. 
So to start off, we found 4 new investigators when we were shooting for 2. We found a couple, an older man and a single mom. It was crazy. They all came from just talking to everyone we saw. I have really gained a testimony that the Lord places people in our path so that we can help them find the joy that comes from the gospel :) 
We also reached our small goal of having 3 member present lessons this week. Now this is where the miracle is. It was so cool! Ok, So we were out with a recently returned missonary on Saturday. So we went over to our appointment and she was just leaving! So we talked to her and got her to sick around just enough so that we could teach her a little and she invited us to come back next week. So we looked at our watch and saw that we still have Sister Rupp with us for about 45 minutes. So we went to her car and prayed to see where we should go and we all decided that we should go see another investigator. So we went over there and found her by the pool. (That sucked for me because swimming is one of the things I have missed the most!) So we talked to her and she has so many questions of the soul that we can answer with the Book of Mormon and she told us to call her next week so we can come over. :) then we saw that we had to go home sadly, and we were one lesson away from our goal. But as we looked around we saw a lady sitting with a bunch of kids and as we talked to her she said that she had to go but we got her information and she said we can go back this week also! 
It was so amazing to see all of these miracles. I know miracles are a reflection of our faith. I know that this is the Lord's work. He loves all of us and wants us to succeed. He loves us all and wants all of His children to part take of the gospel. Help the missionaries find the elect! <---D&C 123:12
I love you! Hope you all have great weeks this week! Keep praying! :)

Well, for the news of what is going to be happening for the next 6 weeks, I am staying here with Sister Fasuett :) I am so happy. We are going to have so much fun! I could not believe we are staying together again! So awesome! :) 
Well. This was a good week. We had lots of lessons and lots of fun. We are working really hard on getting this area to move and I know these next 6 weeks are going to be FULL of miracles! We are working with a family right now that we are hoping will get baptized soon. They have needs that we cant find yet but we are still looking! But other than that, we are just having fun :) 
I know that missionary work is the Lord's work. He has chosen each of us to be where we are right now so that we can help all those around us move closer to the Savior in one way or another. I know that the Lord works through the weak and that is why he has chosen me! I know that through Him I can do anything. I love this gospel and I love being a missionary. I will be so sad when my time is up.
Sorry I don't have much to say. 
I love you!
