Merry Christmas!

We got to Skype with Sis. Lloyd yesterday and it was fantastic!
She is doing well, and is now in Chico learning Spanish.
We love her lots, and can't wait to see her in May!

Well, this week is transfer week, and I'm being transferred. Here is my problem. I'm now a zebra.... for all those who don't know what that means, I am now double covering an English and a Spanish ward. My companion is a Spanish missionary. So I get to learn Spanish! Never saw that coming. Haha.  I guess I better learn fast! 

So this last week we went to the temple which was amazing! We also got to go to the temple grounds a few days later for a live nativity. We got to go with the ward family and our investigators the Feliz family. It was so much fun. We walked around the temple before and then went and saw the nativity. I felt the spirit super strong.

Yesterday was spent saying goodbye to people. Today was spent packing. So sorry I don't have much more to say. I love you all!

Christmas is Near

Hello everyone! 

I am so excited for Christmas!!! Are you? It's one of my favorite times of the year! 

This past week we had the ward Christmas party. The ward missionaries were in charge of it so we got to help out a lot. It was Polar Express themed! It was so much fun! I sent some pictures. 

We also were able to help the widows and elderly couples in our ward put up their Christmas decorations! It was so fun!!! The people in this ward are so sweet! I will miss his area when I leave. 
Transfers are coming up on the 13th so next week we will find out if I'm leaving or not. 

Also this week we were able to put one of our investigators on date for baptism! His name is PJ! We are super excited for him! He is such a wonderful person! 

I got to watch the Christmas devotional last night! It was so good! I loved all the talked but I especially liked the analogy of the Christmas presents. The Savior has given us so many gifts, but how many are we actually opening and using? I hope we all can look at how blessed we are and strive to remember to be thankful and use the things god has given us! 

I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!!

Hello everyone!
I hope you have all had a good week! My week was good. 
We had zone conference on Tuesday, we got to see the Christmas initiative video! It's so good just so everyone knows! We get it the day after Thanksgiving!!! I'm so excited!!! When we left it was raining, but it was weird. It was mist instead of rain. So that was interesting. 
On Thursday we had a zone service project. We went and served Thanksgiving lunch to a senior center. It was a lot of fun! Also later that day we sat out in the cold dark rain for a lesson with an investigator. #Dedication! Neither of us had an umbrella haha. 
Last night we went to dinner at our ward mission leaders house, it was pretty funny because they have a 1 year old who was afraid of my black tights! Haha it was so funny! Every time he saw them he started crying. I ended up just taking them off because of how scared he was. But ya πŸ˜‚ We had some good lessons with our investigators this week. Hopefully we will put one of them on date soon. But anyways that was my week! I love you all and hope to hear from you!

Mission Birthday

Hello everyone! Guess what Friday is?!? It's my mission birthday! Year mark! Yay! 
So, Tuesday was transfers, and my new companion's name is Sister Johnson. It's funny because we didn't spend a full day together until Friday.  Tuesday she didn't get here until 6. Wednesday I was at the mission office until 4:30 setting up iPads. Thursday she had a leadership meeting until 5. So it has been a crazy week. 
Okay so the youth here in this area, are amazing. As a zone we are teaching a lot of high schoolers. It's really cool it all started when one missionary left and it has just dominoed from there. 
We just picked up a new investigator named PJ. He is a high school student. And is super interested in learning about god. I can't wait to see where it goes. You are never too young to do missionary work!

We are also a four sister mission apartment now, so that's fun. Here's some pictures:

Happy Halloween everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful week!
So, transfers are tomorrow, Sister Price is leaving πŸ˜• She is going to Roseville. My new companion's name is Sister Johnson. I have never met her, so I will tell you how it goes next week. Also, we are getting 2 more Sisters in our apartment. They are splitting some of the areas so the Sisters are moving in with us and new Elders are taking their apartment. It should be crazy and fun! πŸ˜„ We have bunk beds now, so that's fun! 

So the work in this area is struggling a bit right now. Within the last transfer, we have gone from 25 investigators (9 of them progressing) to 9 investigators (1 of them progressing). I'm hoping with the transfer, we will be able to change that. We have split our area into 5 smaller areas, to make finding easier and more time and mileage efficient. And this last week I made a list of all the streets in each area, so we can tract each one, and keep track of each street.

This week we had a ward Halloween party which was super fun! We had a less active and a potential investigator come, which was amazing!!! It was a lot of fun. We did a chili cook-off/ trunk-or-treat. Our mission president said no dressing up, but he said nothing about makeup, so I went as a doll and my companion wanted to be a cat. It was a so much fun, and it was so good to see our potential investigator ( she is still a potential only because she has some tough family stuff going on so we haven't had a chance to meet with her again, she is pretty interested though). She is really good friends with our ward mission leader's wife.

But yeah, that was about my week. I hope you are all doing well. I would like to hear from everyone, so if you get a chance shoot me a quick email and let me know how you are doing. I might not have a chance to email everyone individually but know that I love you all and miss you!!!

Crazy P-Day!

Hello everyone! Sorry, but this will be a short email. Today we got to go to a members farm and spend the day. They have a pond, tennis/baseball court, volleyball, a trampoline, and some other stuff. So it's been a fun day. Also, Sister Biernesser came back for a visit! She has been home for 6 months! So I got to spend time with her today. It's been good! Also, it's been raining a lot this week. I hope you have all had a good week!

It's Monday

Hello everyone! How have you all been? I hope you have all had a wonderful week! My week has been pretty good. We were able to find a family this week that is interested in hearing the gospel! So that's good!! We also were able to meet with a woman who is interested form a informational stand point. ( at least that's what she thinks πŸ˜‚)  
Also this week, we were invited to a relief society dinner, we were supposed to bring to of our favorite things. So me and my companion brought silly string and Book of Mormons. Well there was a none member there, and she ended up with the Book of Mormon at the end. It was super funny and ironic! 
Well I don't really know what to say so here are some pictures.

Transfer Week

Hello everyone!

So this week was slow and long. It was a transfer week which means everything is slow and long. I am a tech missionary so on Wednesday I went to the mission office to help set up the greenies iPads. That was fun. I got to see some missionaries that I haven't seen in awhile.
Missionary work is slow right now, but that's okay, we are doing our best and working hard. Umm, not a lot happened this week. So.... here are som dumb pictures haha.

Long Time, No Email

Hello everyone! Well... it's been awhile since I have emailed. Well, at least it feels that way. 
I hope everyone has been doing well. Guess what tomorrow is?!? TRANSFERS!!! And guess what!?! I'm staying here! Haha surpriseπŸ˜‚
Well, other than that, this week I got to go to the temple!! It was interesting because the session we were told to ended up being in Mong. So it was different, but good.πŸ˜„ 
But ya I don't really know what else to say. Not a lot has been going on. Haha. I hope you all have a good week!

Short Email

Hello everyone!
This week was a slow week so this email will be pretty short. 
So yesterday during sacrament meeting a woman got up and bore her testimony. She told a story about a little girl she was with at the pool. The little girl was swimming in the pool and the woman was sitting on the side. The woman asked the little girl if she could learn to swim just by watching. The little girl paused and thought about it and then answered, "maybe but you would learn even more if you got in and followed me." That is exactly how life is. We can learn a lot by studying and observing what Christ did, but we could learn and become so much better I we would live the way he did and follow his example. 
I love you all so much and miss every one of you! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Update and Photos

Hello everyone!

This week was fun. Last Monday we went to a museum, which was pretty cool!  
Tuesday we did some service at a place called the salt mine. It's run by another church and the guy who runs it likes to talk about our religion and ask questions. He isn't interested really, he said he wants to know whether he is against us or not. Haha I don't really now what that means but whatever. 
Wednesday we had some good member present lessons. 
Thursday we had a pretty good day, lots of lessons we had service that morning at the salt mine. 
Friday we had a car fast, so we walked everywhere,that night we had dinner with a wonderful member. She is a single mom with too little girls. Super amazing. 
Saturday we ran into some people we had found a lost dog. The had forgotten their phones so we helped and called the number on the tag. Turns out it was a member! And it was a good thing we called when we did because the were just about to leave for Lake Tahoe. 
Sunday was good, we had stake conference. And afterwords we were visiting people, and we saw a dinosaur. So all in all this week was a pretty good one! 

I hope you are all doing well!

Welcome to Lincoln

Hello everyone!
This week has been a crazy one. On Monday I had to say goodbye to some of my friends, because it was time for them to go home. It was really sad and I cried. 
And then on Tuesday I said goodbye to Citrus Heights and my companions, and left to my new area and met my new companion. I am the driver here. 
So on Wednesday we were out trying to find a potential investigator, we missed the house and I was making a u-turn and I killed the front tire on a sharp storm drain!!! I was not very happy, but right as we were about to put on the spare a member drove by and helped us turns out we were right next to his house, and it was a good thing too because our spare was low on air. So he filled it and we were able to get the tire fixed on Thursday. 
Also on Thursday was my 9 month mark!!! Half way!! I got a package, which was super great (thanks family!!!) 
Friday, I don't really remember what happened, Saturday I wasn't feeling well. 
And then Sunday the fire alarm went off during relief society! Haha the primary was using a fog machine, which set it off. It was pretty funny to see all the women running out of the room either to find their kids or to get outside first haha.
Then today is p-day and we went to a museum which was cool. But ya that's my week. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
