Hi Family <3

How are you??? This week has been AWESOME!!! And really CRAZY! It went by so fast! I can't even believe it! We had a great week this last week! Full of ups and downs, but full of miracles!!! We had 8 member present lessons which is HUGE!!!!! The standard of excellence for our district is 7 MP Lessons! It was a miracle! We are able to do much more with 4 of us! We also went on exchanges with the STL's Sister B. and I went with Sister H. into PJ area! It was so nice to be back!!! And Sister T. and Sister C. stayed in KL with Sister L! It was so fun to be with Sister H. again! We talked about all of our good times and talked about how J, A, KL, S and everyone was doing! J. is going to be baptized in December! I really hope I’m here to see it!!! :) When we were there we visited a Hindu couple whose son passed away about 1 year ago from Dengue fever. They miss him so much; we taught them about the plan of Salvation! It was amazing! The father was a little hard, he is still very upset and bitter... but the mom was crying and said she wants to pray and ask God if this plan is true! I’m so excited for the PJ sisters to continue meeting with them! The lesson was just full of the spirit! :) Our investigator S. is struggling really badly, we can't meet with her for a few weeks, but please keep her in your prayers! It's very difficult to watch people struggle! And it's so hard to see these people who don’t have very much! Many of them we can't share the gospel with, but I know that with the Lords help, we can find those who are prepared to accept the gospel and bring them into light!

MIRACLE!!!! While we were on exchanges the other sisters met with our investigator T, she doesn't speak a lot of English, but we brought a member that was able to translate for us! And SHE just LOVED it! She wants to come to church to learn more and to be baptized! We are really excited to keep working with her! Thanks to V! :) We also had an Open house at our chapel on Saturday, it was really stressful!!!!! But it was AMAZING! Over 20 non-members came to the open house! It was really cool! We had a service project going on, a family history room, the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (which was our station), and lunch was provided! It was a really neat open house! Such a great place for the spirit to touch the hearts of everyone that came! :)

The elders in our branch are the zone leaders and there was an elder who had to go home for health reasons; the comp of the elder who had gone home is staying with them, so we decided to heart attack them...but with stars... (didn't want any violations of pg. 33 of the white handbook) and we had made them planners for this next transfer and ditched them at their door. It was one of the most fun heart attacks ever! We had so much fun doing it together! :) On Sunday we went to the M. families home for dinner with all the YSA in the district and a few of our investigators, B. and Is! It was a thanksgiving dinner with them! It was SOOO GOOD! It’s been so long since I’ve had solid American food like that! hahaha! It was wayyy nice! I def. miss mom and grandmas cooking a lot!!!! :)

Sister M. has a referral for us that we are meeting on Wednesday! We are SOOO excited! It was a miracle that she is meeting with us! Sister M. is so excited to have her learn about the gospel! We are really praying that we can help her! She’s a young mom from Poland and is an art dealer with her two kids and husband; she wants her family to be closer together! And Sister M. brought up the church and she accepted to learn about it!!!!! :) Miracles are happening left and right, and we are finding those people that are ready for this message! The Lords work is moving forward! I'm so grateful for the gospel! This past week I was thinking a lot about second chances, and the Atonement as we apply it in our lives by making repentance a pattern of our life, we are aloud second chances! Christ’s arms are continually opened to us! Sister M. said something that I thought was very profound! It's the fact that the marks on Christ’s Hands are not for him to remember the sacrifice he gave... but for US to remember! I pray that I can always remember my savior and what he has done for every one of us! And I pray that we can each take that to the children of God who are around us!

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!! Keep on keeping on <3
