12 October 2015 - Alexandria Sister Life!

I love my mission. I honestly cannot believe I am 7 months in. It really is flying by and I can't imagine it ending. There is just too much to do, too much to change and too many people to love. It is an exciting work! I have been really struggling with over complicating everything, I think its because I am a bit of a perfectionist haha. But I really came to realize the importance of seeing everything from our Heavenly Fathers perspective. Sometimes we allow the little things to matter way to much when in the long run they will never ever count or matter. I am here because I want to be. I am here because I love my Savior. I am here because God asked me to come here one morning in Altmar, NY when I was pouring out my heart to Him and asking what it was that He truly needed me to do. I am beyond grateful for that morning, it has literally changed my life! I think of all the things I've experienced and all the people I've met and I see that God's hand has NEVER been absent in my life. 
This was such a good week! We were able to meet with Ashley twice this week! We taught the Restoration to her and she was just amazed, we left off after the First Vision and setup a return appointment. We went back and taught the rest, we first reviewed what we talked about and she was so confused why there were to Personages over Joseph Smith. We then explained to her that God and Jesus Christ are two separate beings. I can't even describe to you the emotion that was then in the room. Her jaw dropped and the spirit was so strong. She then said "Oh my gosh, it makes perfect sense. How did I not know that?" It was like a light bulb went off. It was such a testimony builder seeing her truly understand. There is no greater calling than to help someone come to the knowledge of their Father and of their Savior.
Hope yall are having a wonderful week! 
Transfer news is we are staying :)

Ms. Robin took us for pedicures during our dinner break. Love her! 

Birthday Bash with the District sponsored by my mama! It was Elder Nields bday this week!

Ms. Robin and us after pedi's 

We got a request for a free bible... Come to find out it was by a Pastor and he put their church address. So I had to document it. He wasnt there so we left him a bible and a BOM because it was so far out.

We went to outback for lunch with some birthday money from mama, I got a bloody steak and it was like angels dancing on my taste buds. Oh and the bread.........
