Sometimes Everything Changes May 4, 2016

Other times, everything remains the same. This transfer, not much has changed- which really is not very common here. The sisters in my district? Different. My zone leader? Same. My companion? Same. My assignment? Same. My apartment? Same. My sweet companion, hahahaha this is her fourth consecutive transfer in the Beehive House. We think Brigham wants her to be his 57th wife. #lionofthelord

It's been an... interesting week. But summer time is just around the corner, and we are so excited for the influx of large group tours. S. Lopez has not yet had the opportunity to take them yet, but she's pretty excited to lead with the flag. And the microphones are just fun. And this is one of my favorite ways to get people interested in referring and accepting copies of the Book of Mormon- in part because they can't interrupt you and they have to hear you out haha. But seriously, best way to place a Book of Mormon, or 12. And then they do the work themselves from there, because everyone has to develop their own testimony, and their own relationship with God. 

And the Ni Haos are back! I will never tire of being called 漂亮 (Piàoliang). Aaaah but again, more opportunities to spread the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, even to China! ;) Paving the way for when it opens to missionaries.  #savechina.

A scripture, a scripture! 3 Nephi 5:13. Yes, a great missionary scripture, sure. BUT EVERY disciple of Christ, full time missionary or not, is called to declare His word. So, go ponder that, and pray. God will tell you what you need to be doing to declare His word. Because He's good like that. Know who you are. Know your purpose. Then do it. 

I love you all so very much. 

Make good. Choose happiness.

This is my district, from last transfer. They are a bunch of
goofballs, and I love them so much. I will miss spending so much time
with them, but I'm sure this transfer will ring lots of opportunities
to get to know and love more of my sisters in a similar way.
Starting from the left, S. Azucena, S. Dufour, S. Lopez Giron, S.
Eging (top), S. Goncalves (bottom), aaaand Me.
We played at the Family Search Discovery center in the Joseph Smith Memorial was so much fun, and I recommend that everyone go play there. The more people you have in your family tree, the more fun it is. So make sure you do some family history work first.

And of course, you all know who this is... We did not eat there that day, but who can pass up a picture with the Chick-fil-A cow? #eatmorchikin

And this is Sister Bae. Yes, Bae is her real name. Yesterday, the man who baptized her grandmother came to Temple Square... AND her recent convert. It was cool, because the missionary who baptized her grandma got to see some of the far reaching effects that he had from serving his mission. I think sometimes missionaries don't understand the difference they are making when they help someone to gain a testimony and receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. More than just that one person's life is changed. 
S. Bae went back to South Korea today. She calls me "American," so I never actually called her S. Bae, but rather, "Korean." But she is incredible and will be greatly missed here.
