Dancing turtles?

The fountain in front of our apartments froze over!!  

Some turtles singing and dancing? or fighting over a taco?

Jamin' on my Guitar!

Yet another GRAND week down here in Warner Robins Georgia! It's been super cold down here lately, we even got snow the other day!!! What!! It was crazy!! It didn't even stick and it wasn't a whole lot, but it was still snow and that never happens! So we all kinda freaked out! haha!

A Snake!! Jk haha! it's fake, but it gave us a little scare! haha!
Our week has yet again been full of miracles! While trying to contact a referral we felt prompted to walk a different route to get there and as we were walking past this house my companion felt the need to knock this one door, I was hesitant because the house didn't look Hispanic at all, but we knocked it anyways and low and behold it was this Hispanic lady named Maria! The cool thing about Maria is that she was a member  but she stopped when she was 25 years old and she's in her 60's now so it's been awhile! Anyways she told us that she had been praying a lot for guidance in her life and that she felt like us showing up might be her answer! She also cuts hair so I might be getting a hair cut from her this week! 

Nope no new pets this week! Unless you consider the cockroach that I found and destroyed this morning in the bathroom....

If you haven't seen these videos yet, I really recommend them! They are inspiring! I chose this one because of the message it brings, that no matter what you are doing, serving others will heal you in many different ways! Plus the music in the them is pretty good too!

I love you guys!!

Ice in Georgia?

We found ice!! That's how cold it's been getting!!! 

some members gave us money to buy some beanies!! We be lookin' fly!!
I've seen so many miracles this week, big and small! Over all just a great week! Prayers where answered, People were saved, and flag football was played!! 

We've been trying to get Anne Grendel to find our whether the Book of Mormon is true or not and if she should get baptized, and one day we went over and told her that any question she had could be found by reading the Book of Mormon, so we went by the next day and read with her in 3 Nephi 30:2  Turn, all ye Gentiles, from your wicked ways; and repent of your evil doings, of your lyings and deceivings, and of your whoredoms, and of your secret abominations, and your idolatries, and of your murders, and your priestcrafts, and your envyings, and your strifes, and from all your wickedness and abominations, and come unto me, and be baptized in my name, that ye may receive a remission of your sins, and be filled with the Holy Ghost, that ye may be numbered with my people who are of the house of Israel.

If that's not an answer I don't know what is! haha! Anyways we told her that that could be the answer she has been waiting for so we invited her to pray about it, so the next day we swung by and she said she had received an answer that the Book of Mormon is true, and that she would be baptized soon! super rad! That is just one of the many blessings we received this week!

Flag football! See if you can recognize anybody!!

Yesterday a bunch of elders in our Zone came down and played some flag football! It was pretty awesome! I had a blast the only problem is that I'm super sore right now! haha! it's what I deserve! It was really nice to see some of my good pals! I also used the money you gave me to buy some new running shoes because me and elder Anderson have been running a lot for exercise!

Anyways I love you a bunch!!

My Spirit Animal

My spirit animal "The common house cat"
Weekly Planning!

Hey hey! This week was pretty sweet down here in Warner Robins with my boy elder Anderson, we are rockin' like pure thugs! jk not like thugs, more like true shepherds of God! haha!  I'm still livin' the dream!  


I'm sleeping fine!


So we are teaching this super catholic guy named Julio, he really want's help to quit smoking and drinking for his family, but he is having a hard time with it. The first time we met him he let us in and he had 4 cans of beer on his table, he was surprisingly not tipsy at all! haha, anyways we had a super good lesson with him and at the end right before we left he gave us both hugs, but man when I went in for the hug I feel like he almost broke my back! haha! It killed! Super rad dude though! We also had this really sweet lesson with a guy named Marco and his wife, he's less active and his wife isn't a member, but she wanted to start learning so we taught the restoration and I think Marco got more out of it than his wife, he was thankful that we came by to try to bring back one of Gods lost sheep! I also met this really nice cat so I had to take some selfies with it! 
So we have an investigator named Anne, I've probably already talked about her, but she is stellar! She has really been progressing and we are hoping that she gets baptized here pretty soon! Sweet old lady!
We call her Jinny! haha
My biggest testimony builder lately, is when I take time to think of how much I've grown in the past year and a half! Wow if I was a sister, I'd be going home at the end of this transfer! The more I think about it, the less I want it to end! 


I really liked this video a lot! such powerful testimonies!!! I want to be like that some day! haha

Happy New Year

Happy New Years!!

An orchard
Home made tacos made by yours truly!!
First off this video is a great one! Sometimes it's hard to leave the things of the past behind us, but we can! I love the message of being able to change and move forward! And it is all becasue "We have a savior who loves us, and that is something to be excited about!"


1. I love my new companion, he is a stellar guy who is a great example to me! Were killin' it here in Warner Robins!


2.It's funny you should ask what food we've been eating because lately we've had to make our own food for the past couple of nights because our meal calendar wasn't passed around by accident... But we've actually been doing pretty well at making some pretty decent food! We've made some deer meat tacos, breakfast burritos, and some deer meat burgers! All pretty good! Luckily we have a member here who gives us deer meat sometimes! haha!


3. We have a washer and dryer in our apartment! We are blessed, every apartment has one, or has somebody nearby who has one!


4. I love the mini van! #CallMeSoccerMom that's how I feel sometimes! haha!


5.Teaching is getting better and better each day! We've been finding some really sweet people to teach! Yesterday we had a really awesome lesson with this guy named Jesus! We showed him the same video about new years, he liked it a lot!!
a game of fun and faith....


6.During the new years lock down, we finished weekly planning and found this nock off Monopoly game called Bibleopoly, so we played it with the other elders! It was pretty terrible, haha, but I won! haha!
Bibleopoly........... haha

I know our savior loves us! I know he lives! I know that because he lives I can be whole! I love all of you a lot!
