Where do I even start? This week we met a new investigator named Autumn. Me and my last companion met her out on the street a few weeks ago walking her dog! We hit if off and she asked us to come back in a few weeks after her wedding and "hang out". Haha so we did :) She was so excited to see us and invited us right in. Eventually the conversation turned to the gospel. We talked about God and how He is our loving Heavenly Father. She just started crying...we asked her what she was feeling and she just kept talking about how she felt a weight lifted off of her shoulders :) Everyone pray for Autumn.
We got in with a less active member from Liberia haha she made us try some of her ginger beer  and we both tried so hard to choke it down haha are throats were one fire. But she was SO nice.
Yesterday it snowed and snowed and then rained some ice. I was sliding all over the place ( walking not driving don't worry) we weren't allowed to drive the cars and church got canceled so we walked around and helped people shovel! It was tons of fun and we met a lot of new people. We were able to watch the christmas devotional last night and I got to hear from my favorite apostle Elder Russel M. Nelson.
But...I think my favorite thing that happened this week, happened many miles away from where I was. In the Bountiful temple on December 5th at 8 a.m. (10 a.m. my time) My paka and grandma were sealed in the temple! What a special day. I am so grateful for the knowledge we all have of the restored gospel and that families can be together forever. I am grateful for them and there sacrifice to be there. I am so grateful to my parents, that decided years ago that they wanted something more. That they didn't want to settle for anything less than forever.
I love you all!

Hello! Everyone :) 
I really have no idea if any one reads this anymore but I will be happy in 9 months when I will have this to look back on.  This week I learned a great lesson on doubts...strange I know. Before I left on my mission I just thought that in order to be a missionary you had to be 100% and completely doubtless. I am here to say that this is NOT true. So many times on my mission I have found myself by the edge of my bed praying over and over again to know if the book of mormon is true. At first I was embarrased that I was having to do that. I am a missionary for heaven sakes! I can't have any doubts or curiosity i thought! I have come to learn that doubt followed up by sincere prayer and studying is not something to be ashamed of at all, but this is what makes our testimonies grow the most. The promise in the Book of Mormon isn't like a ticket to the movies, once punched, can't be used again. But this promise is eternal! It can be used over and over. And we WILL receive an answer.
 so this week was crazy ...we decided to fast on friday for lisa to get better...( she has been so sick after having her baby and her baptism date is coming up )  and for evelyn to get her head on straight and really decide if this is something she wants. was the hardest time i have ever had fasting. My testimony sunk to a low that I haven't ever before felt. I was FILLED with ...doubt.  satan was just getting to both of us. we were both so down and our spirit were so depressed. we knelt in prayer and asked for help!  we both felt distinctly to go outside on a walk. ( this was during studies.) so we bundled up and went outside. we walked across the street and there was this man standing outside. his name was maurice. we talked to him for maybe 20 seconds and he told us he wanted to go to church with us on sunday. we left him with a card but we realized when we got back that we didn't have his address or telephone number so we were just going to knock every apartment sunday morninghaha. After this all of our doubt was washed away! We came back in the apartment and studied the part in the New testament where the savior fasts for forty days and forty nights (way longer then we fasted haha) but what hit me the hardest was something it said towards the end. It didn't say that after the savior triumphed and Satan left defeated forever! it said that satan left of a season. FOR A SEASON. The Savior as perfect as He is. He being the Son of God was faced with doubt and temptation not only once but OFTEN. This was such a comfort to me. Doubt is what helps us to grow. the acorn of honest inquiry has often sprouted and matured into a great oak of understanding!
well..Sunday came...and Maurice called us! he came to church and loved it! he stood up and said in elders quorum that he was loving it and was going to come back ALWAYS! haha we introduced him to the ysa elders and it was way smooth. he is totally getting baptized. This would have NEVER happened if it weren't for yes, DOUBT. It is 100% completley okay to doubt but first like elder Uchtdorf said "doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith". Pray, Study, and seek answers.
Then we turn behind us in sacrament meeting and EVELYN and LISA were sitting there looking as happy as ever! they told us that they weren't going to come and then they were there!
We went over later and lisa told us that brother johnson ( her parents home teacher) came and gave her a blessing and she asked him if he would baptize her! Also she asked us how she could get to be a primary teacher hahahaha. yeah she is awesome.

Hello there!
This week I had the incredible experience of being interviewed one on one by Elder Carlson of the seventy. He came to our mission for our conference and i was able to talk to him! We had a great conversation about forgiving ourselves. Something that we all know that I am TERRIBLE at, but getting better :) He pointed out something on his thumb and asked me what it being a bit confused answered "your knuckle?" He responded with a laugh that is was actually a scar. He related this to the Atonement and my favorite topic...forgiving yourself :). He pointed out that I had no idea that it was actually a scar on this thumb....I admitted that i didn't. He shared that a lot of times we worry so much that everyone is just staring at our scars and our flaws when in reality you are the only one that sees them. I could relate. He then repeated over and over that the scar is not the wound! The wound had been all healed up, just like most of spiritual wounds. And the thumb still worked even with the scar!! the scar that HE only knew was there! We sometimes are left with spiritual scars to remind us to stay away from danger, and to remind us what we have learned and how far we have come. This may sound harsh but remember the SCAR IS NOT THE WOUND.
The thumb still works just fine. We all deserve to be a little more patient with ourselves. " we can all learn from that voice from heaven. it is not loud, scolding, or demeaning; it was a still small voice of perfect mildness, giving firm direction wile giving hope" We should all learn to talk to ourselves in this way.

I have learned so much this week about what it means to love. I remember awhile back my dad sent me an email explaining that there are three types of love...1. I love you because....2.I love you  if....and 3. I love you even though...To be honest I hadn't thought a ton about that until this last week. I have been blessed to have so many people in my life to love and to be loved by. However I haven't realized until this last week what it means to sacrifice for someone you love. My companion is sick with migraines ( one of them) and the mission doctor called this morning saying that she might be sent home. On a mission you learn to love your companions...and I have been fortunate to get along well with them all so far. But I have learned a very valuable lesson this past week that in order to really show someone you love them, In order for your heart to sincerely, selflessly love MUST sacrifice. There is no other way. I have learned that just because you get along well, tolerate, or like being with someone does not mean that you LOVE them. Christ-like love comes from serving selflessly. You must forget yourself. Because of all the time we have spent inside, I have had a lot of time to ponder this topic. I thought back to the people in my life that I told over and over again that I loved them! Then...I thought about the sacrifices I made for them. And the sum total I am so grateful for this learning lesson now in life. TRUE CHRIST-LIKE LOVE = SACRIFICE. there is no other way. There can not be any other equation.

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price went and sold all that he had, and bought it."
I have been thinking a ton about this scripture this week and what is means to be a consecrated missionary. Even more than that and for everyone reading this, what is means to be a consecrated person. I remember a story my institute teacher told me last year around this time. In the story a young girl decides she wants a string of pearls just like her mom. Her parents tell her that if she saves up all of her pennies that they will take her to go buy her pearls. She works and works and saves up ALL of her pennies! And her parents kept there promise. They took her down to the nearest dollar store and proudly the little girl bought her new treasure. She wore them every day! While she played! While she swam! and even in the tub. Every night when the little girls dad would tuck her in he would ask if she loved him. She would respond of course daddy, of course I love you! And he would reply ...then give me your pearls. Oh No! She would say. Not my pearls. But can have my favorite doll.
The process of this happened over and over and the girl had about given everything in her room to him. One night the father walked in and saw her crying by her bed with something in her hands. He asked what was wrong. She looked at him and said daddy! I love you. so here are my pearls.

She gave them up! She worked so hard! But she gave it all up! When she did this out of the back pocket of the father came a brand new, real set of pearls. Nothing fake or imitation. Nothing cheap or easy to buy. But the Pearls of great price.
Our Heavenly Father asks us the same question. And many of us respond in the same way...well...I love you but not that much. I will give you my Sundays, I will give you my scripture study, and prayers...but not my pearls. Not my imitation pearls. How silly of us when what he has is that pearl of great price! He is willing to give us more than we can imagine we ...easier said than done... just have to learn to consecrate ourselves.
So...give it all up. Everything unworthy, or worldly. Give it up! And in return you will receive so much more. You will receive that pearl of great price.
I love you all :) We had a fantastic week here. We have been working a ton with less actives and had 4 more of our brothers and sisters in sacrament meeting this week!  Keep praying for us that we may find those who are ready to here and act upon the gospel.

Hey Family :)
Lisa one of our investigators had her baby! She is on date to be baptized on november 9th and she was worried she wouldn't be ready health wise by then. Well we went home and prayed that she would have the baby early ( but healthy) so she could be ready...and...she had the baby that night! He is the most adorable baby :)
She is looking so good and soo ready to make the promises of baptism. I wanted to be there so bad when she had the baby haha she would joke that I would be the last person on earth she would want there...well maybe she wasn't joking. She said I had to much energy for that...Maybe labor and delivery shouldn't be one of my top choices for a career?
We had an awesome lesson with a new investigator named Teryn. We met her while we stopped by the house looking for a less active member. The member moved but Teryn was there ready to hear the gospel. She


loved it! and said that she had tons of friends she wanted to invited to the next appointment.
We are working hard at meeting all of the single sisters in the ward especially those who have become less active. We call it the SINGLE SISTER SAFARI. It is a blast and we get to meet so many new people.
My companion sister crossley just happens to love giving back massages so my back is currently loving life. we carved pumpkins at a members house today :) it was so much fun! and we have basically the whole ward inviting there friends to the Halloween party on Saturday!

So I just wanted to quickly share an experience I had with the scripture of D&C 4:6. Remember faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, dilligence.
For a long time these christlike attributes seemed absolutely unattainable. I was reading in a talk about how different prophets throughout the BOM had these abilities. I got the idea that I knew people in my life that possessed these qualities! I went through and thought of a person for each attribute. I usually don't like to single people out. and I am not even sure who reads these but I wanted to share what I found.
Faith : I chose the biggest example in my life. Isaac Foley. He trusts with everything he has. He gives all of himself to his Heavenly Father and trusts that He will guide him.
Virtue: I thought of Karissa Lindsay. A friend from my high school drill team. We didn't know each other for very long but she made such a HUGE impact. Who can find a virtuous woman for her price is far above rubies? Karissa was always concerned with dressing modest and the way she presented herself was always virtuous. She is a woman of God!
Knowledge: I chose my very first seminary teacher brother Dixon! He helped me learn to love the scriptures. He hungered and thirsted after righteousness.
Temperance: I chose my MOM :) She is so patient with us and situations. She is always grateful for what she has :)
Patience: I picked my 9th grade English teacher. Joan Heap. She saw everyone as the Saviour would. Because she was able to see with spiritual eyes, she was patient with people and there shortcomings.
Brotherly Kindness:Mimi Miller! so happy. so nice. so friendly. enough said. She makes everyone feel loved and welcome:)
Godliness: My dad :) he is the closest example we could get to of how our Heavenly Father loves us. He loves unconditionally.
Charity: Karlee Hurst. She always gives. She is always looking for ways to reach out in love to friends and family.

 Humility: my best friend, Megan Marsden :) She wants to be her very best. She is constantly striving to be better. She WANTS to be shaped and changed.

Diligence: Gavin Yeip. He was always 100% comittied to whatever he did! Probably never thought that any one noticed...but I did!

 I hope that this can help me be able to attain these christ like attributes. This made it seem more attainable to me! I challenge you to do the same :)
Love you

Woah! Conference! Probably the happiest time of the a missionary at least! I tried something new this year. I wrote down a list of questions that I had for my Heavenly Father ...personal questions and ones that pertained to the work. Every single question was answered in detail! Our Heavenly Father is so aware of us and our needs and concerns. I really want to start doing this every week as I prepare for the Sabbath Day. 
We went over to one of the families were working with ( Evelyn and Lisa from Liberia ) conference morning. We made captain crunch pancakes ( a new recipe I decided to try) and they made us African srambled eggs. We ate a yummy breakfast and then soaked up all the goodness that conference had to offer. There mom Cecilia, is a recent convert. She turned to me with tears in her eyes when the prophet spoke and said "I can really feel the spirit right now. I like what he is saying".
I hope you all came away from conference inspired to be missionaries. "Now is the time to paint the missionary badge on your hearts" They challenged each member to share this "Good News' With one friend by Christmas. It was not only a challenge. But it was a commandment! A commandment from a loving Heavenly Father who wants all of His children to enjoy the blessings of the gospel. I can't wait for you and your families to experience your very own miracles as you embark on this journey to spread the gospel to the four corners of the earth!  
I love you all to pieces :)

Hey Family :) I just wanted to send you a quick story that I loved from a book I was reading called Believing in Christ. Read it if you haven't. It tells a parable about a little girl that asks her dad for a bike. he tells her that if she saves up all her pennies that he will take her to buy a bike. So she saves up and a week later asks her dad to take her to the bike store. She runs in and finds the bike and just falls in love with it. she jumps right on and rides it around the shop :) she then turns the tag over to see that it was way more pennies then she had ever could have saved. she hangs her head and starts to cry. 
The dad waited a moment and then decided to present a new plan...he asked her how many pennies she had. she responded with 61 cents! he then says...i tell you give me all you have and i will make up the difference. it is the same with savior and the atonement. no matter how much we have, whether is is 61 cents or a dollar he will always make up the difference. :) this story really hit home.
I pray for all you to have missionary moments :) so much of missionary work is done by serving and friend shipping! remember that if you do this, He will bless you with your very own miracles.
Love you!

Hello from Savage Maryland :)
I am now serving in the Savage/ Columbia area of Maryland. I am training a brand new sister from the MTC. Sister Blaisdell. She is from Corona CA. We are shotgunning this area which is tons of fun but super stressful. The area is very diverse and has people from tons of countries here. The two investigators we are working with the most are from Liberia!! They are so fantastic :) we had a lesson last night with them about the Atonement. The spirit was so strong... I really am going to be better about writing letters for the blog...don't worry :).
I really want to try to get members out here excited about! So I am challenging all of you to either make a personal or family account so I can show members here the awesome members I know from home :). I love you all and hope you are all having a fantastic week!

 Great Week at the Orioles Game and other Mission Pics.  Mormon Night at the Orioles.

Tuesday, August 13, 2013


Hola mi familia :)
What an incredible week! We had another baptism! His name is Jeremy H. and he is 18 years old. He has such a special place in my heart..i know that I was meant to meet him and that I promised long before we were here that i would find him. He is one of those 3 week miracle converts you here all about from RM's haha. We met him...3 weeks ago! The other cute girl (besides my companion) in the picture is Adrielle. They have been dating for awhile and both have been going to Shepherd. She was raised in the church. Jeremy was curious what Mormons were all about so he asked her and she answered few of the questions and then he took the responsibility upon himself...which i think is SO cool! He got on and and started getting alot of his questions answered. He started talking to online missionaries and even started reading the Book of Mormon. When we finally talked Adri into introducing us to him we were so excited! haha we brought a BOM to give to him and then found out he had already read most of it. then we were so excited when he came to church to show him around...turns out he had already been three times! All we had to do was invite him to be baptized. He immediately said that he knew it was time. We quickly reviewed all of the lessons with him and he was baptized on Saturday! Jesse G. ( I have mentioned the his family alot in emails I think but this is a brother that was at BYU I which automatically makes him cool.) but he came home for awhile in between semesters and we was able to baptize jeremy. they were both so excited.
The spirit was so strong at his baptism! Adri spoke and many member got up to share there testimonies. we had 35 people there to support him! it was an incredible week.
I am working on this little project and I would loveeee if anyone who reads this would participate! I just am looking for a short written version of everyones testimony! :) please and thank you.
much loves.

Hey friends and family :) I have missed ya bunches! It has been the hardest craziest (most blessed) few weeks of my entire life. I have learned alot about how satan works...right when someone is about to do something good he WILL send trials with ALL of his power. but... the light of christ is much stronger than that. I never thought I would struggle as much as I have in the last few weeks...with the calling as an STL, and my grandma great passing away, I didn't know if I was gonna make it haha. at the time it felt like the whole world was crashing down on me.
I made it though...I definently could feel all of your prayers this week for me. We worked hard. harder than ever before...and were so blessed. Porter A. was baptized on saturday. :) what a special experience to be a part of. we had gone down to the visitors center with them last week and they made us promise we would come back in a year when they go through the temple...his wife WAS a less active member. They are so happy sitting on the sacrament bench together every week with there cute little girl. The gospel blesses lives!!! HOLY COW. 
I have mentioned before we have been able to meet alot with the young adults in the ward ..most of them were less active but have now came back to church :) one of them in particular introduced us to her non member boyfriend...HE IS GETTING BAPTIZED THIS SATURDAY!  They are so happy. All we basically had to do was invite him to be baptized. when we did he just started to cry and said: I know its time and i know this feeling I am feeling is the spirit! what a special experience...I may have shed a tear or two...or lets be honest ALOT of tears.
I know now more than I have ever known before that the gospel of jesus christ brings an unexplainable happiness. not just a temporary happy...but an eternal joy. I know that the plan of salvation is real...I know that now my grandma great is having the oppurtunity to be taught by other missionaries in the spirit world and that she is waiting for her work to be done in the temple. LIVE WORTHY TO  BE THERE. It will be done :)
I can't say enough how much a mission has taught me. I will be a better friend, a better daughter, better sister, better wife, and a better mother because of the things I have learned and am learning. ENJOY LIFE. smile a whole lot! "The little moments are the molecules for eternity." Loves!

We are teaching a family :) the daughter went to girls camp this week and loved it! Apparently she even got up and shared her testimony! So awesome.  We also have an awesome investigator on date. His name is Porter A. and his wife are a less active member. they came to a baptism that the elders had on Saturday and came to church on Sunday. he was so excited when he found out that he could baptize his daughter when she turns eight. He also loved church. he said he loved priesthood meeting because of the brotherhood.
That is funny you mention service ha ha we did 10 HOURS of it this week. we are always looking for ways to serve. this week we did everything from making apple sauce and spreading mulch, to helping a family move and visiting a nursing home. it was tons of fun!
WELL...its that time again. transfers! I thought for sure I was getting transferred out and that sister Anderson would be training here but president called us last night and gave me a huge shock. I will be a sister trainer leader here in Shepherds town for this area of the mission with a sister named sister Brunson. and sister Anderson will still be in our stake but will be up in Cumberland. So yeah...I will be going on tons of exchanges and getting to know a ton of sisters in our mission. I am excited and nervous all at once.
I feel bad because I never feel like I can write enough to you all. I never share details which i feel bad about. but I am keeping a good journal. I love Shepherds town and I am so happy I get to stay
I love you!

Hey family and friends :) What a roller coaster week! We had a bomb week last week and killed it with our key indicators. BUT we started to think about it and none of our investigators are really the real growth kind. and that is our focus! we need kingdom builders! So we did it. we cleaned out our area book and ended up dropping almost all of the people we were teaching because they just weren't progressing. it was so scary and I don't think I have ever felt that vulnerable on my mission. I mean teeaching becomes your life on your mission and when you don't have people to teach it becomes a tad bit scary. BUT heavenly father blessed us with 5 new investigators the day after we had dropped so many! First off is Joy. she is a mother of two and her little girl turns eight today :) she is very interested in religon. The other is a family. YES you heard me...a family :) I can hardly hold it in. A family of 6. They are very very interested and so excited to haveus over. They are currently looking for the "true church" welll....we are hoping we can help them with that. There daughter is going to girls camp with our ward this week! what a blessing! the ward just jupmped on the idea and did everything they could to make it happen. Keep praying for us and this area. It is ALL about REAL GROWTH :)
My favorite part about this past week was...well..we got a cactus from a member last night. It is prettycute and adds a little flavor to the apartment haha. And today we are going fishing on the Potomac River!
I really learned this week that when life gets hard you just have to keep going. It was the hardest week of my entire mission BUT I know Heavenly Father will bless us for being obedient and keeping a positive attitude.
Love you all

Hey family and friends :) I just wanted to say hello. I hope everyone saw the missionary devotional last night! what an awesome time to be full time missionaries and member missionaries :) I just wanted to share a funny and awkward experience from the week... do you know the saying "fill the canteen before you leave for the desert"? well it IS NOT a desert. I got  kissed this week! yes you heard me haha. We got to our dinner appointment  with a member a little early the other night and so we decided we would walk around and get to know some of the neighbors. we knocked on this door and we were talking to this man and he was way nice, not interested, but nice. while we were talking his son came running down the stairs and put his arm around me and sister anderson. he had a few special needs and you could tell it was hard for him. we were talking to him a little and then his dad said he needed to go inside...well he turned and gave me a hug. we arent' supposed to hug men but i wasn't about ready to push this poor kid. And then he proceeded to kiss me...and I am not just talking a peck either. what an experience. definantly a moment from my mission that I will never forget haha. I love you all!
I hope you are ready to work hard. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints needs member missionaries :) It is not only a calling but a duty. Following Jesus Christ is not just a casual part time commitment. Its full-time fun! Find the missionaries and introduce them to a friend. I promise if you do it out of love, everything will be okay.

Hey family and friends :)!
I just wanted to say Hello from Wild, Wonderful, West Virginia. Wow. What a cool place. I was so nervous when I first got transferred that I would be eating squirrell or "possum stew" but thank goodness we haven't had anything like it. I don't think my little vegetarian stomach could handle possum...they are so cute. The area I am in is Shepardstown WV. It is the oldest town in WV and has alot of civil war history. Its like historic 25th in ogden X's 1000. It is also a college town. Home to a very liberal arts school. We live right across the street from campus. Most of the kids went home for the summer but we have been able to meet 8 new investigators this week! Shep-town is home to a very different breed. HARD CORE hippees. barefoot and bearded I can handle, but they literally eat the grass- I am not kidding. They bend down and eat grass. lets talk about culture shock. My mom is nervous It is going to bring out the real me. I am going to be am I. I love it here so much.
Down town there is alot of live music and there is even a cupcake shop. yes!
As much as I have missed Odenton I have loved it here. There are alot of single sisters in the ward and we have been so busy visiting everyone!
I do want to share a miracle from my last area however.
Working with members is just as important as working with non members.
I have talked alot about the Denney's and how awesome they are at doing there member missionary work. Well we paired them with Kim B. to be her fellowshipper. At first it didn't make a whole lot of sense because they are not close in age at all. but after time things began to unfold. The Denney's have never been able to have kids and now are adopting Kim's grandson and grand daughter :) they are so excited! Miracles happen. My last night in that area brother denny text me and thanked me for serving a mission and for introducing him to Kim. He said that it had changed his life. That right there,

made all the hard days in Odenton worth it. I am so thankful to have served in that area and to have met the Denny's. I will always remember them. And I will always be friends with them.

Hey mom and dad! This week my email time is going to be very very limited haha. This town is so small but I love it. I feel like I am living in a fairy tale. its an old historic town called shepardstown. There is a small university here ( a liberal arts school) and we have been able to get to know alot of college aged kids. Downtown is like historic 25th street times 100. it is soo cute! we dont have an actual mail box outside of our apartment but our address is 8348 Martinsburg Pike #1 Sheppardstown WV 25443 PO box 2043. We get to walk down to the post office everyday to get the mail and next to the library is the town bakery with the BIGGEST cupcakes ever haha. we got one the other day and it was so good. The library has three rows of books and two computers with a half an hour limit. I am hoping we can find somewhere better to emial next week.
So we are basically starting a new area.  There were only two names in the area book. There are two towns in the Martinsburg ward. Martinsburg and sheppardstown. The elders are living in martinsburg and have not really ever came down to sheppardstown. The members however are so excited we are here. we are treated like we are celebrities haha. The women especially. there are alot of single women /widowed women in this ward. we met with the bishop the other night and he gave us the challenge of finding his replacement in shep town! Not an easy task haha. We have been so blessed however. we met 5 new investigators this week! and we even had an investigator at church on sunday. I really think that strengthened the trust of the ward to have them see us working hard! Our apartment is so nice. i feel spoiled rotten. We are in a car area so like i said...i feel spoiled rotten. I didn't realize how hard core we were in Odenton.
I love this area! It just fits me so well. I dont know how to describe it. Its very artsy. all of the trees on mainstreet are covered in yarn looks sweet. and across the street is "the wall" where all the  college kids hang out at night and play there guitars haha. and where we preach the gospel. sorry this isn't very long. there isn't a thing where I can send pictures so I will send home my sd card this week since we are going to the library every day now.
I love you all!

Hey Friends and Family!
I just wanted to share my favorite miracle with you from the week! We were down on Cadbury Dr. the other night and we started talking to Tanesha's little sister Breann. She is about 22. We were just getting to know her and her boyfriend and we were standing there for awhile. I kept thinking that we were being super disobedient because we weren't talking about anything to do with the gospel, but I just kept feeling prompted that we needed to stay! about 30 mins later she started to tell us about a dream she had. She told us that she has had it multiple times and every time she has had it she hasn't wanted to wake up. In her dream she sees Jesus coming down from heaven with hundreds of angels standing behind him blowing trumpets and that the sky is full of clouds that are purple, and blue....sound familiar? haha well it did to me too. Before i left I bought a bunch of small pictures to stick into my scriptures and one of them was the picture of the 2nd coming when Christ is coming down from the clouds! I pulled it out and showed it to her and she just started crying. She said it was the exact same picture she had seen in her dream! She ran right inside to show her mom. it was so cool :) The spirit was so strong! She is now meeting with us to take the lessons!
I just wanted to encourage all of you this week to be BOLD! Share your testimony on facebook or send it in a text to a friend. We have been so blessed to have the opportunity to share our testimony in so many ways! I promise that if you do this, you will have a miracle. That in someway somewhere what you say will hit somebody and be exactly what they need. I love you all and the support!
I am being transferred out to Martinsburg West Virgina, so I wont have the address at Scots Manor any longer!
 these little girls love trying on our name tags. This was at the Denney's house for FHE with kim.
love ya, Sister Fullmer

Hey Everyone! I feel so bad I haven't had the chance to email until now. we drove over to the library on Monday and it was closed on memorial day :( we have been so busy that right now is literally the only time we have had to do it! We don't even have time for lunch most days we are so busy :) its a good thing.
It sounds like you all had a bunch of fun camping. it was crazy to think this last week that school got out! haha I can just imagine kaden will all the ladies. I am so glad you got the phone call from the lady in my ward. she is so awesome! we almost ended up moving in with them at the beginning of last transfer. I love the outfit that grandma got me! i am actually wearing it today :) it has a really cool pocket on it that i can stick my  cards in.
To give you a little update for the week...well i can't. It just has been so awesome! It started off with last teusday...I woke up and just felt like I really needed to learn how to teach the restoration in spanish! (we have a few spanish restorations pamphlets and books of mormon) So i did! I taught sister struhs and we were just laughing so hard the whole time. I felt so strongly to take a spanish book of mormon with us. later that day a member called us and asked us if we had a spanishs book of mormon for her friend! Of course I was jumping up and down I was so excited. We went over to the members neighbors with her later and we were able to give her the spanish book of mormon! they are Jehovah witness and have alot of tough crazy questions but they are progressing! the husband knows english. But later that week we found not 1 but 2 more spanish speaking investigators! It was such a miracle. we have a few spanish speaking members in our ward so they came with us last night. I couldn't say a ton but I did manage to say a few things in spanish about the book of mormon. they invited us to come back thursday!!!
We also were able to go do baptisms for the dead with Miss Kim! the water makes her a little nervous but she did awesome. she was just all smiles afterward


Tenesha and her two kids baptism got pushed back to next saturday. the son didn't come to church on sunday and we really want them to be baptized as a family. but we have been able to meet with them alot. tonight we are teaching the 10 commandments and we made it into a puzzle activity to keep them interested :) it should be fun!
we met a total of 10 new investigators last week!!! this area is sacred grounds to me! It has been so blessed. alma 26:12 says Yea I know that I am nothing as to my strength I am weak, therefore i will not boast of myself but I will boast of my god for in his strength I can do all things. Yea, Behold, many might miracles we have wrought in this land for which we will praise his name forever!
This describes perfectly how I feel.
We were able to teach a total of 38 lessons this last week!!
I was studying fasting alot this week this fast sunday coming up. I have always been really bad at fasting but I was reading a talk from the 2004 november ensign so its kinda old but it talks about starting and ending a family fast while kneeling by the table. I thought that was so cool! We have been doing alot of FHE's lately and I have realized how much strength they really do bring. Try to do one this week before sunday and decide as a family something you can fast for :) I love ya'll.
Transfers are this week I am not really sure what will happen but I keep getting the feeling I will be leaving Odenton :(. I will let ya know on monday.
Love ya!

Hey friends and family!
I just wanted to say hi from all the way back east! This week has been crazy busy! We have 6 new investigators and are just talking to literally every person we see!. we have been working alot with the less actives and the members in this area and it has brought so many blessings! We got to teach relief society on Sunday and the lesson was on temples. Man, it made me miss going to the temple so bad! one thing that really stood out to me was the importance of having a current temple recommend. I was thinking about it one night while I was trying to sleep and I compared it to an I.D.
and ID has your name, hair color, weight, height. etc. but how does a temple recommend identify you? .It identifies your faith in HIM. Always have a current temple recommend and make it a point to go to the temple! He needs our help with his work. the missionaries on the other side of the veil are working over time to bring the souls there to Christ but they can't do it alone. We are the ones that have to help these precious spirits progress to the waters of baptism, and endure to the endowment! They can't be perfect or complete without us. and we can't be perfect of complete without them!
Go do baptisms, go do a session. Just GO! Heavenly Father will bless you. Pray for the person you are going through for. You are there escort. Pray that they will accept the blessings of the ordinance and pray that they will feel your love for them. Temple work is the most selfless thing that we can do. As we prepare for the Ogden temple to be finished, get ready!
Love you all!

To all my friends and family!
I just wanted to share a quick scripture with you this week. It is in Alma 5:14 - 28. And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experience this mighty change in your hearts? And how behold, I say unto you my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?
Can others tell we have the light of Christ in us personally and in our homes! Be an example to neighbors that are less active or non members. feel the need to sing the song of redeeming love and reach out to those lost sheep of his fold with love. We are seeing so many miracles out here from reaching out to less actives. Befriend them! Help them remember what they already know! Be bold and loving, when you combine the two it is never overbearing.
This week has been a long one but I have really learned how worth it all the hard work really is. And that goes for just life in general too! When times get hard go forward with confidence that something around the corner will be even better. 
Have ye experienced this mighty change in  your hearts?
Do you let the gospel shape and mold you? The gospel of Jesus Christ will bring more happiness than anything else possibly could here on this earth. Let is shape you! let it mold you! I promise that if you do, you will experience this mighty change of heart. I know I have. Odenton has become sacred land to me. It is where I have been truly converted. I love the Savior and I know without a doubt he loves all of us and is there for us with his arm of mercy extended to us...but are we willing to grab his hand and let Him pull us out? Trust in the Savior and in our loving Heavenly Father's perfect plan.
I love you all!

Hey there!
What a blessed week out in Odenton :) I have an amazing new companion Sister Struhs. She is from Blackfoot Idaho! That is where grandpa grew up right? She even went to BYU-I woo woo.
She came in with a fire that Odenton needed! I remember sitting in transfer meeting being so incredibly nervous (almost shaking haha). when she got up to bear her testimony I knew that she would be my new companion. I really have been so blessed to have such an obedient companion. Odenton has been on fire this last week, we got tons of members out to our lessons which are always so beneficial. OFFER to go out with the missionaries in the area. It is such a blessing to have such strong members! We met 5 new investigators since Thursday! Wow! Not to mention we got to end the week great with the baptism of Miss Kim. What a special thing to be a part of! She had been so excited all week. The spirit was so incredibly strong as she was cleasend from everything that has been bugging her about her past. It was kind of funny, a member fromt he ward baptized her, him and his wife have really fellowshipped her and even took her to buy her first dress on saturday morning! They are seriously the best member missionaries! When he baptized her, at first her head didn't go all the way under so he pushed her down more and she started flicking her feet around. When she came out of the font she said that after she realized that brother denney wasn't trying to drown her haha that she felt so much calmness and peace. It was a really cool moment. after she got up and bore her testimony that she knew it was true and that it made her so happy. She also said that she knows that God loves her because we were able to come knock on her door and save her from the saddness that she had. The whole night was just to good to be true. The next day she was confirmed a member of the church and was given the gift of the holy ghost. I don't think I have ever felt so much joy! honestly! She came back to her seat with tears in her eyes. The humility she demonstrates is just so powerful. It really has been an amazing week :) This morning I was studying and the verse in Matthew 5:14-16. I have read these verses probably a hundred times but they have never stood out to me like they did this morning. Heavenly Father has each blessed us with unique personalities and talents. So why do we hide this light? I know that each of you has an amazing responsiblity and role here in this life so stop pretending to be someone else and just be yourself. plain,raw, natural. YOU! Be excited about the gospel :) share it with everyone you see and take every oppurtunity you have to be an example of the believers! "Bask in its life giving light" I love you all so much! Keep praying for me and my companion. Pray for Jean and Jandell this week that they will understand the happiness that this will bring them. I am so proud of you for having family prayer!
Love Sister Fullmer
