"Its Flower Scented!" (fluorescent)

Well this week has been super fun! We have gotten the blessed privileged of helping one of our investigators chop wood for the last 5 days! It has been so much fun!!! I love having Farmers as investigators! It really just makes my day when they call asking for help. HAHA granted Sister Rodriguez has no idea whats going on, but she is willing to help and we have the best time ever!!!

I am now starting transfer 12 out of 13. Time is just flying bye!!!! Every day I pray that it will slow down but sadly it doesn't! But I am doing the Lords work so time does not matter. This week has been pretty crazy but still lots of fun! We had alot of wonderful lessons with our investigators about the Atonement! All i can say is I love the Atonement and the amazing power it has! 

Over the time I have been able to serve the Lord here in New York i have come to truly understand, how the Atonement is something every human uses everyday weather they know it or not. And for some they use it more then others. I often think of the Atonement as a life guard. A life guard is always there ready to help, and when we need help he jumps right in and keeps us safe and above water. The Atonement of Jesus Christ does the same thing for all of us. But its is our responsibility as humans to let it keep us about water and not to turn our backs on God.

Also this week we got to do some fun crafts!!! Because we are teaching so many little kids, every Saturday now we have a craft day. We teach short lesson and as a reward for being so good during our lessons for the week we do something fun. This week we made a prayer poster! and each kid made there own prayer foot print to remind them to pray and how to pray. It was so much fun! We also made scripture cases with the some other kids we have been seeing and taught them about the importance of keeping our scriptures safe and taking care of them. 

It is so much fun being a missionary!!! I cant believe it has gone by so fast! “I have often said one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work! If a missionary works, he will get the Spirit; if he gets the Spirit, he will teach by the Spirit; and if he teaches by the Spirit, he will touch the hearts of the people and he will be happy. There will be no homesickness, no worrying about families, for all time and talents and interests are centered on the work of the ministry. Work, work, work—there is no satisfactory substitute, especially in missionary work.”

thank you for all your love and support!!
