When you're hangin on 👊🏼

This week has been full of trials and miracles!
Our investigator Richard is doing great! He was able to attend a
baptism and he is getting excited. It's crazy how how prepared he is.
Heavenly Father truly leads us to those who are ready! Hahaha
hilarious story.. So Richard is hilarious. We decided to take him to a
members house for tea and she had us made sure he likes curry. We
asked him and he said he did so when we get there he says he can't eat
curry and the member goes out and gets him fish and chips. Oh my
sister Mo and I were so embarrassed and we were dying. Luckily the
member was super nice about it and just laughed. The story got around
the ward pretty quick...
We were also at a
I was on exchange with sister Blair said this past week and we had
been talking to sister turvey about my back, how I feel and
everything. I have just felt frustrated that we have tried so many
things and nothing has helped. Through prayer I have been able to feel
peace knowing that Heavenly Father is aware of me and does have a
plan. And I know this is part of it.

I have been thinking a lot about how I can have the spirit with me
more and be able to receive promptings more regularly from the Holy
Ghost. Another lesson in Relief Society yesterday was just what I
needed.  There have been times where I haven't had the best attitude
about things or I have been critical about others or grumpy and all of
these things keep us from feeling the Holy Ghost as often as we could.
So what can we do?
- pray!!! We can ask Heavenly Father for help to keep our thoughts
centred on our Savior
- Have a desire to improve & want to become better
- Serve others, this will help to stop thinking of ourselves
- Put ourselves in situations where we will be able to feel the spirit

This week I was reflecting on my mission so far and I just feel so
much gratitude to Heavenly Father for giving me this opportunity to
serve Him and His children.  I have learned more about myself and more
about my Saviour than I have in the past 19 years of my life.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes and packages! They mean a lot. I
can't believe I'm gonna be 20!!! Time just flies so we gotta enjoy it.
Love you all,
