Hi family!!
 
How are you all doing?? I can’t even believe its December!!! This week was really good!!! Our numbers were quite low, which was really hard! BUT! We have a lot of faith and a lot of great plans this coming week! So we are going to see miracles with the help of the Lord! :) We have been making a lot of really cute banners to put on peoples doors to express our love! And it's really opened the members up!!! We have seen a lot of miracles with the members asking us if we can help them reach out to their friends, less active members, and even some active members! We are really starting to work together with them!

This week we were able to go to a Thanksgiving dinner at the W. family’s home! it was AMAZING <3 they invited a lot of non-members, less actives, and it was a great opportunity to talk about what we were grateful for, share the gospel, and help them understand what we do here in Singapore! It’s been amazing to see how many of the members are really good at sharing the gospel with their friends and family!
 
 
 
 
We had a missionary presentation in church on Sunday where I talked about all the blessings I have seen from serving a mission and from participating in the Lords work! I have witnessed miracles! My favorite is seeing how close all of you have come together and how close all of you have come to Heavenly Father! The Lord has promised us many blessings as we do our part in the work of salvation! We just need to GO AND DO! That’s been my motto for this transfer! I want to be diligent in all things! It's been a little tough this transfer, but I have really seen how real miracles, and the Atonement of Christ is! We witness miracles every day!
 

And Ipersonally feel how Christ’s atonement is changing me, and how it is changing the lives of those we teach!
 

Most of our investigators were gone this week! :( But we were able to meet with a R!!! He ROCKS! I met him a long time ago when he had first met the missionaries! And now we get to meet with him every week! He is the BEST!
 

I love you so much family! I’m praying for you always! I hope each of you know how much God loves you, how aware he is of you and I pray you never forget to look to him! Look forward to Christ, especially during this time of year! He will lead and guide you in all things!!
 



I love you!!!! <3

Hi family!!! <3

How is everyone?!
 
Things are going really well in Bedok!!! Everyone better get their umbrellas cause its RAINNIG MIRACLES!!!! Cheesy but TRUE!!! We have been really focusing on finding new investigators through part member families in our ward! And we have been visiting a lot of less active members!! As we were walking to the low family’s home, my companion was like! I know a less active that lives here. I’ve met him before! He gave us food! She was like! We passed him to Bedok! There is no way this is him... guess what?! IT WAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So we went inside and visited with him and his wife! They are so amazing! AND still totally have testimonies! WE ARE SO excited to be working with them! We are having an FHE with them tomorrow night, and we hope to help their two sons prepare for missions! It’s amazing how the Lord is aware of every one of his children!
 
And lately it's CRAZY, we have had people come up to us wanting to know more about the gospel! And one sister came up to us, and said, you are missionaries for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints! She had learned from missionaries before so we got her phone number and invited her to church! We will be meeting with her this week! She isn't in our area, but we have seen so many miracles in this area! And we have created an AWESOME vision to work with the members; 1 Nephi 8:12 being our scripture!!! :) We are WAYYY excited!!!! We have a message to share to strengthen their faith and testimony in Christ and his atonement!
 

I know as I have been studying the atonement, it's become so much stronger to me! I have really come to understand that all things are possible through the atonement! And the atonement is the center of this gospel! We are nothing without it! But with it... everything can be possible for us! I love you so much family!!!! I’m praying for you!!!!

Love,
Eternally

Hi family! <3

How are you?? This week was one of the CRAZIEST on my mission!!!! Let’s start out with Monday...so I couldn't find my wallet in the morning... I thought, oh I just left it at the condo! So after we came home I searched high and low... and couldn't find it, so after a lot of prayers.... and panic attacks I called the mission office and told them to cancel my card cause I lost my wallet... (Also had my SD card with my mission photos from the beginning of my mission in it) :( I’m pretty sure it was stolen! Anyway... it was all figured out! They put money on my companion’s card for the rest of my mission! And it was all good...


UNTIL my companion’s wallet was stolen and now we had no money; and she had no transport card! We were feeling a little disheartened because we had also through the week been dropped by all but 2 of our investigators... But! We are so very blessed because with permission from the mission president they pulled out enough money for us to last through the rest of the month! It was a miracle! So now everything is taken care of and we can get to our area!!! It’s quite far from where we stay! But! We were able to see a really cool miracle!!! While we were on our way to serve some of our members with our elders, we met a lady on the bus (her name was R.) and she was a member of our church! She was baptized many years ago, but has been less active for 8 years! So we went to visit her the next day! But before we went to visit her we had a Thanksgiving RS activity. While we were there we were talking with Sister Ra, a member and she was asking us what our plans were and we told her who we were going to visit. TURNS OUT she was the missionary who baptized this woman R! So she wanted to come visit her with us! And let me tell you! After the beginning of this week, it was AMAZING to be a part of this miracle! So we are going to be visiting her often and help her to come back to Christ! It’s amazing how the Lords hand is in EVERY aspect of every one of our Heavenly Fathers children’s life!

My companion taught me how to make cute little banners to hang on peoples doors! So we have started doing that for the members and they love it!!! We have literally had a dinner appointment every night with the members! They are so AMAZING! And we have received many referrals! We are really excited to just get this area going and work so hard core with the members!!! <3 it was a tough week at first! But the miracles are coming! And they are going to keep coming!!! I’m so grateful to be living with sister Pr! I love her and she has grown so much! She was helping me with exactly what we need to be doing for the people in Singapore! Just have to LOVE with all my heart, might, mind, and strength! One more step for Jesus! <3 a little saying we have in the mission! :) I love you so much family!!! :)

Love,
