We serve a God of miracles!

                                        Cool sunset, cool selfie idea, cool comp, cool car. 😎

Hello All! This week was incredible!! It was my last full week in the mission field. I can't believe it! 

Some highlights:

We had zone conference and it was incredible!! The whole theme was "The Divine Companionship". We talked a lot about the gift of the Holy Ghost and His role in the work. We talked about how important it is that we're united as companions and with the Holy Spirit! It was amazing. I learned A LOT. And it proved fruitful for the rest of the week!

We visited a member family and asked for referrals and we were referred to their neighbors who ARE FROM CUBA!! Cool! The Diaz-Rios family. We love them so much. They came to church yesterday and really enjoyed it too! Brother Diaz-Rios has no religious background, but he said that he enjoyed the environment, teachings, and company!

We actually had 13 investigators at church! We had A LOT of new faces at church on Sunday, and church was PERFECT. All of our investigators loved it! I couldn't be happier!

We also found 13 new investigators throughout the week too! 

We have an investigator who is flying through the lessons, but we've been concerned recently that he's being convinced and not converted. We hadn't seen any sense of penitence in him and we sought revelation on what we could do. On Sunday he came to church!! After church he called us and asked us to come over. It was a little inconvenient, but we felt that it was important. When we got there he told us about a lot of the feelings he had at church and said that he's ready to start the repentance process and be all in with the gospel!! He also asked us for a priesthood blessing and it was a really sacred experience. I'm absolutely elated at his progress and I know that this is a result of the Spirit working in His heart! The divine companionship - 1, Satan - 0.

We've also started a 100 day Book of Mormon reading challenge in the mission!! How neat!

I could go on and on with other miracles and tender mercies we've seen but I think this must suffice. I testify that miracles have not ceased, that the Lord lives, and that if we will seek to be worthy of the gift of the Holy Ghost and follow the promptings we receive, the Lord will do His work before our eyes.

Love you all!

SUPER MISSIONARIES



This week was incredible!! THE LORD HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS. Elder Moyo and I have been praying to be guided to those who are prepared to be baptized RIGHT NOW! And boy we have! I'm not sure if Newcastle is ready for all these baptisms!! hahah

I had my final interview with President Thompson and it was wonderful. I felt so much joy as I reflected on my mission and the lessons I've learned. This is the greatest thing I've ever done in my life! I'm grateful for you all and your support!!
