Hey y'all!! Waazzz up??? This week was good! We had trainer trainee
meeting this week and it was good! Weird being the trainer though
but it was cool getting to learn it all again!

Later this week on Thursday we had like three miracles in a row
because we followed the spirit when we felt like we should go
somewhere else other than  we had planned! So that was awesome!!
First some guy drove by us right as we were about to cross the street
and came back and asked for the Spanish missionaries number so we gave
it to him and he is a new investigator for them so that was pretty
sweet! Then we had an awesome lesson with this lady but before we
could set a return appointment someone like yanked her into the house
and yelled at us to go away! But we gave her a BoM so that's good! And
then just like 5min later we were walking along and another guy came
up to us asked for a Book of Mormon and gave us his info and said to
come over! It was crazy!! The Lord really guides us when we seek it
and pray for it!
Oh also we started asking people to pray for us to find people to
teach and it's been working like crazy we've had a bunch of solid
people who we met this week come up to us and two new investigators so
that's bomb!!
The Lord has just blessed us a ton is week!
Oh and one more cool story we were supposed to have a lesson with one
of our people who is on date and she wasn't there but when we stopped
by her cigarettes were on the porch and we both felt like we should so
we stole them  God knows what he's doing! It was just a really good
week! Here are some pictures!

 Hey y'all! How's everyone's week goin?? This week has been pretty good! Crazy but good! We had transfers this week and I got my newbie missionary that I'm training!! His name is elder Robinson! And he's pretty cool! He is pretty chill and he's doing really well and progressing really fast! So that's good! He also almost got hit his first day because people in Portland can't drive  but the Lord protected him and that was a huge blessing!! Also it's been raining a lot more lately so that's cool! We had a great lesson with Mary (one of our investigators who is on date) and it went super good! She is progressing super good!! And we are super excited for her! We're taking a trip to the temple with her and her family this week! So that should be a blast!

  Presley had fun at our lesson this week when she took my iPad

Hey everyone!!!
This week has been good! Elder Barton was back on his feet so we had a
good week!
We had a zone conference, which is like a huge meeting with half of
the mission and the mission presidency gave some really good talks
about repentance and change. It was super good. Also Elder Barton
got us matching ties so we wore those to the meeting!
This week we also got our transfer info! And elder Barton is getting
transferred to Saint Johns.... in Vancouver  so that's kinda
funny! I'm staying in Saint Johns in Portland and I'm getting a brand
new missionary as a companion who I'm gonna be training which is
kinda nerve racking because I'm just finishing training!  But the
Lord knows what he's doing so I'll just trust in him and do my best!
Pray for me!
How's everyone doing? I love you all! Talk to you next week!

Hey everyone!!!! How's the week going for y'all? This week has been pretty good for us! We had a broadcast this week and our schedule changed up some!! We have and extra 2 hrs on PDAY! And planning  moved to the morning! And we have more freedom with study time but other than that not too much! We also had a chance to meet with some of our people this week and it was really good. We had really good lessons with some of our new investigators! One of them is our neighbor like two houses away from us!  Her name is Ashley! She is a really nice lady! Has three daughters! And the other investigator's name is Mary. She's is also super nice and she has two daughters and a son that are all pretty little!   So we had really good lessons with both of them and they both accepted baptismal invites so that's sweet. Other than that not much happened! 

Here is a list of talks I read and liked:

"Settle This in Your Hearts”
    Neal A. Maxwell
October 1992

"Behold, the Enemy Is Combined” (D&C 38:12)
April 1993 general Conference 
    Neal A. Maxwell

“Take Especial Care of Your Family”
    Neal A. Maxwell
April 1994 general Conference 

“Brightness of Hope”
    Neal A. Maxwell
October 1994 general Conference 

 "Deny Yourselves of All Ungodliness”
    Neal A. Maxwell
April 1995 general Conference.  

"Swallowed Up in the Will of the Father”
    Neal A. Maxwell
October 1995 general Conference

Also Ether 12!! 

Also one thing I learned from the missionary broadcast was that the gospel shouldn't be viewed as a bunch of different topics or anything like that. It's all connected and it's all supporting of each other! If we have faith in Jesus and His atonement it'll lead us to repent and so on. It's all connected!  
Let me know if y'all have any questions or anything! 
Love ya talk to you next week!
