"I seriously love spending my birthday on the mission"

HEY YAALLL

Thanks so much for all the best of birthday wishes! I seriously love spending my birthday on the mission- you get to spend the day serving and teaching and receive all sorts of fun packages :) THANK YOU ALL!! Seriously, I am the person I am today because of all of you! You have each impacted me in such a way that has changed me.

At our district meeting, the district leaders issued a challenge. A sort of key indicator scavenger hunt. On Saturday, we had to get 2 referrals (which has been like impossible in this area), 2 street contacts, 1 investigator to be baptized, 1 member role play, and 1 RCLA lesson on tithing. Sister Ludrick and I were determined. So my birthday was filled with miracles, because we didn't know how we were going to be able to do it, but we did!!

MLC and Miracle Sunday

Hi yall!! This will be a pretty short email today :)

MLC was rockin and it was so seriously great to be back in Twin Falls!! I love MLC and President Bartlett. He is truly a man called of God!

BUT WE HAD A MIRACLE OF A SUNDAY!! We had three investigators at church and two less active couples that are wanting to return!! It seriously was a miracle. John, one of our investigators, biked to church again. He loves being there and is so seriously golden. Last night we had our interviews with President. As I was in my interview, Sister Ludrick was talking with Sister Bartlett and telling her about the incredible Sunday we had. Sister Bartlett said, "Well, you know who that is!? It could only be Brent!!" Last week, one of our recent converts suddenly passed away. It was a super difficult time for Sister Ludrick and I and the ward. BUT when he was confirmed, his blessing was all about missionary work. He is doing it from the other side!!

Love you all!! Thank you for your constant prayers!

Happy Days Ahead here in the great IBM!

"I love conference and all the many answers I received to prayers...."

I am so grateful for the opportunity and blessing it is that we have to hear from our dear Prophet, President Monson, and the Apostles twice a year at General Conference. It is scripture for our day!

I LOVED the talks on member missionary work :) and the MTC choir. oh man. my heart. I cried. I love conference and all the many answers I received to prayers as well as silent pleas. I KNOW God knows me and loves me. He is my Heavenly King! I will sing praises to Him every day of my life. I know He lives! And His love is so clearly manifest through our Savior. I know that He lives and I will strive to come to KNOW Him as Elder Bednar taught (below) more and more every day:

"We come to know the Savior as we do our best to go where He wants us to go, as we strive to say what He wants us to say, and as we become what He wants us to become. …

… Believing Him with our whole soul comes as we press forward along the covenant pathway, surrender our will to His, and submit to His priorities and timing for us."


Oh I found out my release date...March 1. It makes me so sick to think about. But I know that it is what God wants for me. He never intended for this mission to last forever! But He did intend for it to change me to the point where I can serve Him forever!!

From Elder Yamashita:

"What does it mean to “be ambitious for Christ”? Being ambitious for Christ means being motivated, focused, and dedicated to His work. Being ambitious for Christ will seldom mean that we are singled out for public honor. Being ambitious for Christ means that we serve faithfully and diligently in our wards and branches without complaint and with joyful hearts."


Happy Days Ahead!!
