Like The Rainbow After A Long Storm :)

Hey hey!

I apologize for not getting a good update in for the past 2-3 P-Days...please forgive me!

General Conference was pretty awesome!  I recommend all the talks, though I really like Elder Holland's talk, Pres. Monson's talk, & Elder Falabella's talk.  you can watch them at

The past few weeks have been filled with highs & lows; strangely, just before & after Conference weekend some of the people we had been working with either dropped us or had stopped progressing in their commitments.  But the up side is that a less-active sister asked us to come teach her & she wants to get her life back in order--we really look forward to helping her out!  We also met an awesome family who may become investigators soon, & a guy who wants us to come & teach him about the gospel!  We're still working on meeting more people in the Ward who aren't active, & we met several during the past couple weeks who were very welcoming & wanted us to come back!  The Elders in our Ward have also found a bunch of people to teach; things are looking up & it feels the rainbow after a long storm :)


This just in:

I'M GETTING TRANSFERRED & I'M TRAINING!!!!!  Not only am I training a new Sister from the MTC (for the 1st time), but I'm also finishing another Sister's training at the same time!  This transfer group has 14 new Sisters coming in & 2 going out, so there are a lot of Sister trios in the mission for the next 6 weeks.  I am going to miss serving in the Truckee River Ward--it has been a privilege to work with so many awesome members & I will miss everyone we worked with!

I would like to tell you about a guy named Mike--we were trying to contact a referral & knocked on his door.  Turns out the lady we were referred to is his landlord & she lived a couple doors down.  We talked with him for a little bit, gave him a card, & asked if we could come back.  He was super open to us coming back, & he went straight to his computer to check out the videos on!  We had an awesome first lesson with him on Saturday--a member came with us & he totally felt the Spirit as we talked with him & testified!  I wish I could watch his progression--I know he will grow so much in his faith in Christ, & he will find what he has been searching for.  I love the gospel!!!  I know this church is the true Church of Jesus Christ, and I know that His Atonement can work miracles in anyone's life, if they will follow Him.  I say that in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Be strong & faithful because He was!

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter yesterday, everyone!  :)

Hope you had a wonderful time with family & friends, and I hope you had some time to reflect on the Savior's life, example, & sacrifice for us during this Easter season.

This week, I would like to share with you some scriptures relating to Easter:

John 3:16-17
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Isaiah 53:3-7
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Alma 7:11-13
11 And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
12 And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities.
13 Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.

Mosiah 16:6-9
6 And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come as though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.
7 And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
8 But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
9 He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.

I testify that Jesus Christ lives and that he is the Savior of the world.  I know His Atonement (suffering, death, & Resurrection) is real, & that through faith in Him & His Atonement, we can overcome anything in life.  I know that our Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ love all of us & know each & every one of us.  I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Have an awesome week!

Be strong & faithful because the Lord is!
