Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka, or Merry Christmas in Hawaiian!

I am so overwhelmed with joy and love at this Christmas season. Not only do I feel the love of my Savior even more so, but the love from all of you. Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me Christmas letters, cards, and presents!!! I love you all so much, and it truly means the world to me. Well, I guess I'll share the cool news:

I'm back to proselyting!! Yay!!! Don't get me wrong, I loved online, but I am so excited to be back in an area =) I will be serving in the Laie 8th Ward, the YSA 8th Ward, and YSA 10th Ward! The area has a couple of investigators and potentials, so I'm excited to get to work! 

Today is transfer day and I am a grandma!! Yay! My baby Sister Jones is going to be training, so I have a grandchild, haha. My new companion is the one and only Sister Tsai!! She is from Taiwan and has been out for 3 months now. She has such an awesome testimony, and I cannot even wait to see the miracles that we will see together. We already saw one yesterday! 
Miracle #1 : 
When Sister Jones and I were on shift, a family from mainland China came in! Only two of them spoke even broken English, but I was able to take one of them (a woman) on tour while the others took pictures. I showed her the temple corner with all the pictures of the temple, and she LOVED it. She felt bad, though, because she could not understand everything I was saying. Well, in the middle of the tour I felt really impressed to show her the Book of Mormon. We walked over to the Book of Mormon display where we have it translated into 83 different languages, and when I did, Sister Tsai came walking through the Visitor Center. She was able to take over and share more! She taught the whole group about the Book of Mormon, and then showed a video in Mandarin of President Monson sharing his Testimony of The Book of Mormon. I felt the spirit so strong, even if I could not understand the language! Sister Jones and I looked at each other and then went and grabbed materials; one of them being a copy of The Book of Mormon in Mandarin. They gladly accepted it, and said they wanted to learn more, then we all got a bunch of pictures together!!! It's so cool to see this work progressing, and I am so excited for the day that the China Mission opens so this family can be taught by the missionaries!
Miracle #2: 
Let's just say, yesterday was a day full of miracles. This one is probably my favorite =) So a member of the Bishopbric in one of my old Wards came in with two non-members. They said hello to us and then walked back to all of our displays. Sister Jones and I went back to meet with them, when the Brother came up to us and explained that he brought this couple, and they were from the Philippines! Hah, being fluent in Tagalog, of course, I let out a nice, "Oh! Kumusta po kayo!!" Haha, it got us all laughing, and really broke the ice! Then the Brother asked if we could show them the Movie presentation, "God's Plan." Being our favorite, we lead them into the room where it is displayed. While we pre-set it, I bore my testimony that I know that God has a plan of happiness for us, and that a part of that plan is being with our families forever! I mentioned that I had lost many loved ones in my life, but I knew I would see them again because of the temple. The husband then says "Yup! Sure hope so," in a very, how would you say...logical tone..?  We pressed play, then I said a prayer asking Heavenly Father to help the husband and wife feel the spirit and truth of this message. No sooner were we 3 minutes into the presentation, and I see tears falling from the wife's eyes. We headed into the last room and invited them to pay attention to their thoughts and feelings, and how they can apply this message into their lives. We pressed play for the last portion. It ends, and the room is quiet. We stand up and reverently ask how they felt. It took about a minute for words to come out of the husband's mouth, but when he did, he said, "This was really hard for us......." Then the Brother from the Bishopbric spoke and said that they had just lost their son. Tears were now streaming from everyone's faces. Sister Jones and I testified that this message was true, and that through the sealing in the temple their family WILL be together again! The Husband looked at us and then said, "I believe it..." It was such a tender moment that I will never forget. 

Miracle #3: Sister Jones and I did not slip and break something playing mud Rugby yesterday!! Haha, during the winter season it is always raining and very windy. So she and I went and played rugby in the mud with the Elders, when it was pouring yesterday! SO much fun, but so muddy and so slippery!! It was awesome, though. I love my mission =)
I am so grateful for this gospel and the true joy that it brings. I love this Christmas season because it is always so happy and filled with the Christmas spirit. There is a reason for that. It is because the greatest gift we have been given was the birth of our dear Savior Jesus Christ. He brings light into this world, along with peace and hope. It is because of Him that all the bad in this world can be made up for if we simply follow Him, learn of Him, and keep His commandments. Those who were affected by the Connecticut shooting are especially in our prayers. Each one of us can know that if we are doing all that we can to follow Christ, we can have eternal happiness; happiness that last forever! This world is not the end, it is only the beginning. I testify as a representative of Jesus Christ that we WILL see our loved ones again if we are willing to do all it takes to act upon faith and endure to the end. I love my Savior so much, and I love my Heavenly Father for allowing His Son to come and suffer all of our afflictions so we will never walk alone. I know these things to be true, and I invite everyone to share this glad message! Christ truly is our "Joy to the world." 

I love you all so much! Mele Kalikimaka, and Aloha!

Aloha, and Happy Holidays!!!

The only word that can describe this week is MIRACULOUS! Not only in my area, or the zone, but even in the mission! Heavenly Father is truly preparing the 1200 for Hawaii. Usually the majority of guests that come into the VC are from  ALL over the world. Not this week. Heavenly Father has been sending His wonderful Hawaiian children our way. Many coming to the Visitor Center, not knowing what lead them there, but each leaving the VC having given us their contact information to meet with the missionaries!! For the past month we have truly been putting everything we have into finding those who are ready, and we are feeling Heavenly Father right by our side in every aspect of the work.  

The Miracles are endless....

Having said that, I'm keeping this e-mail short so that I can still have stories to share with my family when I call for Christmas. But know that online is going SO well, Sister Jones is almost all grown up, haha (never mind that she is six inches taller than me), and I have never been happier in my life. I know that when "ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:17. I can testify that this is true, and I know that Christ is the prime example of service. He spent His life serving others, and I know that it is by serving that we can build up God's kingdom and find true and everlasting happiness in this life. I invite you all find an opportunity to serve  someone this Christmas season. There is always someone who needs our help, and I can promise you that not only will it mean the world to them, but you will feel closer to Christ.

I love you all so much, and appreciate your e-mails and letters! I love being a missionary, and hope yall are having a wonderful Christmas Holiday!!

Happy Holidays, and ALOHAAAA!
For all those who watched the First Presidency Christmas Devotional, you better believe that after President Monson said, "Brothers and Sisters," all of us missionaries accidentally said, "Aloha!", please don't make fun of me when I get home and say that after every speaker intros themselves. Oi.

I am loving this Christmas Holiday, and all that it entails. We as missionaries are so grateful for the spirit of Christ that truly fills the air during this time. I can't exactly say the same for our chats, haha, but you can definitely feel it in the Visitors' Center. This is a time that we can especially show to the world that Christ is the center of who we are. He is the greatest gift that God has given us, and we can show our gratitude in sharing that gift with others!

Our Zone is still on fire, and the blessings of hard work and diligence are becoming endless. We cannot deny that God's hand is showing us the way to find those who are searching for this true and everlasting gospel. To start the Christmas season out, President and Sister Dalton and the AP's came to have our President's interviews as well as a fun Christmas devotional of our own. It was so neat, and I absolutely love our Mission President!! He is truly an inspired man, and I feel so blessed to have him as our example and leader of this work in the Hawaii Honolulu Mission!
So, I don't have too much time to e-mail this week, but I want to make sure to get in some "Christmas" miracles =)

Christmas Miracle #1:
Our zone went and flooded the Sunset Beach area (not the actual beach, don't worry) on Saturday, using what we call the "Prayer Approach." As companionships we divided into areas and went tracting for just an hour. It was awesome! We were able to leave four blessings (Prayer Approach), find one new investigator, and commit one to baptism! Couldn't have asked for more in just the space of one hour. Also, on our trams and in the VC we have been getting a lot of people from around the island who are not members coming in, and able to get them to self-refer! Vision 1200!!!! It's going to happen!

Christmas Miracle #2
While we were all watching the Christmas devotional at the stake center, Sister Looney (Sister Trainer) passes a note up to where Sister Jones and I were sitting. She said she had no idea why, but really felt like we needed to go to their dinner appointment. The appointment was with a family from Papua New Guinea that I absolutely LOVE. Every time I am on exchanges with the sister trainers we are able to see them, and it is always such a spiritual experience. Well, needless to say, I gladly said yes, and so Sister Jones and I were planning a short lesson before we got up to leave the devotional. We found a scripture, and then felt like we should sing a Christmas song with them that pertained to the scripture we had chosen (3 Nephi 28:10). We both look at each other and say "Joy to the World!" It was perfect. We get to the home, and we forget our hymn books, go figure. We ask the family what Christmas song they knew the best, and sure enough they said "Joy to the World." It was so perfect, and really invited the spirit for our message. The lesson was awesome, dinner was perfect, and we left. We meet up with the sister trainers and they told us that it truly was inspired that we go to that dinner appointment. Instead of going to the dinner, they were able to go visit a less-active who has a non-member husband. After teaching a lesson, they knelt down to pray with her when in walks the husband. He joined them for prayer, they invited him to baptism, he said we wasn't sure when, but that he would meet with the Sisters again!! 

Training is still going well. Sometimes I feel totally inadequate, but I know that I always have a great example to look up to; Jesus Christ. I am truly grateful for Him, and the love that He has for each and every one of us. I know that He came to this earth to atone for our sins so that we can have eternal life to live with God again. I am so grateful for this season, but also know that as we continue to pray, read our scriptures, and go to church we can have the light and spirit of Christ with us every day of the year. Love you all so much, and am so grateful for your constant support, prayers, and letters! Happy Holidays!!

Good Morning, and Aloha
I hope everyone was able to have an enjoyable Thanksgiving! A lot is going on right now in the zone and in the mission!! Our new zone theme, “All Day, Er’y Day!” We are seeing miracles, one right after the other, and I know that it has been through fervent fasting and prayer. Our zone is more unified than ever (including zone exchanges and chanting the Haka every morning during exercise :), and together we are being so blessed in finding the elect. A week and a half ago we had 4 with a date, as of today, we now have 16 with a baptismal date. Our zone leaders committed us to having a total of 30 with a date for December by the end of this week! It definitely sounds crazy, but we know that by doing all we can, we can help God keep His promises.
Well, Thanksgiving here was definitely different, being warm and all, but it was perfect. The Bishop of the Laie 1st ward’s father hosted a giant thanksgiving feast for the public. It was so neat. All the Senior Couple Missionaries, a couple of us from the zone, with a lot of people on vacation or the homeless coming to stop by. It was such a great missionary opportunity; we were even able to get a new investigator! There was a woman from Ukraine, who I noticed was watching Sister Jones, Christiansen, Looney, and I. I turned to her often and smiled, and she smiled back. Later, she was talking to one of the Senior Sisters, and she said that she wanted to talk to us because she felt something very special about us. It was really humbling. She didn’t care about what we were wearing or what we looked like, but she felt something different about us. I know that the spirit was working through her, which allowed Sister Christiansen and Sister Looney to get her contact information to teach her some more. Best Thanksgiving ever.

Oh, and the food was good, haha. 

First Thanksgiving with rice instead of mash potatoes!

Alright, let’s hear some more miracles:

I mentioned going on Zone Exchanges. Well, every single one of us in the zone exchanged companions last Friday. Just through that we found 3 more with a baptismal date. I know that it was truly inspired. It was so nice being back in an area again. I was able to be with Sister Mark. She just got here 3 weeks ago, is from Micronesia, and is AWESOME. She definitely came pre-trained. Unfortunately, the whole town was at the state football game because the local high school, Kahuhku High School, was playing. Sister Mark and I were going around trying to find people to teach, but nothing. We then stopped and said a prayer, then felt like we should go see some members. On our drive there, we saw someone standing at the corner smoking. We drove up a little bit and parked, got out and went to talk to him. He was an inactive member, but as we continued to talk to him we were able to find out his concern!! So, after teaching him, we invited him to come to church on Sunday, and he said he would. Chee-Hoo!!

Just last night Sister Jones and I were chatting, and we received a chat from a guy who had a question about a specific scripture in the Book of Mormon about God and Jesus Christ being two separate beings. We answered the question to the best of our ability, but it somehow turned into what we sometimes refer to as “bible bashing.” Not on our end, but we had to simply testify and get out of the chat. Well, the second the chat ended we got a notification for another chat. We accepted, and then a girl comes and asks about the EXACT same scripture. Sister Jones and I just looked at each other and thought it must have been a joke.  We then talk about it (a blessing about being online), and decide that we definitely need to approach it differently. We thought and prayed in our hearts what we could tell this girl that would help her, and she said that our answers made perfect sense.  She is from Canada, had been investigating the church for the past six months, has a baptismal date, but still had a couple of questions. She said that she had moved her baptismal date several times because she got nervous of how her family might react. She explained to us that she knew this was the path she needed to go, but didn’t know how to pursue it. We then said a prayer with her, testified, and let her know how much Heavenly Father loves her. We then concluded the chat with a way to keep in contact. It was such a miracle that Sister Jones and I were able to receive that specific chat before so that we could know how to better respond to the same question in a better way. I am so grateful for the hand that Heavenly Father has in this work.

I am so grateful for this gospel. It is true! It brings so much happiness and peace into our lives if we let it. God is our loving Heavenly Father, who sent His only begotten Son to live and die for us. I know that He still lives, and I know that God lives, and I know that the commandments they give to us will lead us to everlasting joy and eternal life. I invite you all to ask at least one friend if they are interested in receiving the “Joy to the World,” dvd from the missionaries. I can promise you that your efforts will be noticed as you spread the best message we have to share: Jesus Christ. I love you all, and hope you are all enjoying the wonderful season.

Sister Jones and Me

Well, this week has been amazing! This letter is going to be kind of short, but I hope does not take away from how much I still love this work. I am, in missionary terms, a new mom, aka: training a new missionary, and I am absolutely loving it! It's super fun because in the VC, we tend to call our trainers "Mom," forever...and being called mom is definitely a new experience! I love Sister Jones so much, though, and am learning so much from her. I cross my fingers that she is able to learn something from me. Chat has been really good! We have to double time our training/studies because I have to be able to train her in the visitor center, online, and just as a missionary in general, but she is a fast learner. I love her because if she doesn't fully understand something she is never afraid to ask questions, and when we train on something, I always see her apply it when we are proselyting. 

As for the Miracles I am thankful for:


There have been so many opportunities for me to sign lately! It has been such a blessing. I was able to give a deaf tour on Friday night, then, because of being online, Sister Jones and I can choose whichever ward we want to go to on Sunday. We were headed to the Laie 4th ward at 8am, but saw Sister Looney and Sister Christiansen (the new sister trainers...kind of like the Zone Leaders for the Sisters) going to their own ward, and thought we would join them. We get to their ward and I completely forgot that there is a deaf group in their ward! So, Sister Jones and I sat in the front row with a friend of ours, who is deaf, and all the other signers to watch the interpreter. It made me fall in love with sign language all over again. The tour I gave on Friday was a member, who actually lives in Provo, and said he would be happy to help with my sign language even more when I get off the mission!! So pumped, and such a miracle!

On chat,  Sister Jones and I were able to teach someone who is ready to receive the gospel and accepted to have missionaries over! The miracle in that is that they are from England!! Hard mission. So we're definitely praying for them!
A lady we chatted with, she came on to chat to inform us that she did not want the missionaries over anymore. We were so sad!! She had no way of contacting the missionaries, so was wondering if we could call them and cancel the appointment. We continued to chat with her and try to figure out her situation. She has such a strong faith already for this gospel. The thing is, her husband is not ready to receive the gospel yet, and she, being the amazing woman that she is, wants to always work as one with her husband. We could just feel how much love she has for her family, and how badly she wants the gospel for them as well. We were about to end the chat when we felt inspired to see if we could say a prayer with her. She said yes, and it was amazing! She said it was everything she needed to hear, and hopes that the day to learn more will come soon. We asked if it would be alright if we kept in contact through e-mail so we could still continue to teach her. She of course accepted! I cannot wait for the day that she and her husband are able to learn from missionaries in their home.
Christmas Already!
Fun at PCC

My New Pad
I am so grateful to be a missionary. Every day is a new experience, and every day we are able to be instruments in God's hands. God has provided us with truth on the earth today. That truth allows us everlasting joy! All we have to do is keep the commandments. I can testify that as we live the commandments and strive for exact obedience, we will be able to see miracles in our lives. Pray for missionary opportunities, for miracles, and I can promise that Heavenly Father will use your divine talents and gifts as a child of God. I love you all so much, and during this season of thanksgiving, am especially grateful for my family, my friends, and especially this gospel. Have a great Thanksgiving!!!

Hi family and friends, it has been the craziest week EVER. Well, we all found out that we were getting six new sisters in Laie, so we knew that five of us would have to go full-proselyting (off-island) so there would still only be 22 sisters in the VC. So there are already four sisters being trained, so that meant either you are going out, or you are training the **new babies (new Sisters coming in) !! Everyone has been going insane trying to figure out what was going to happen! Well, my amazing companion Sister Gamba is going full-pros to Kuai!! I am so happy for her, and so totally jealous, haha, but she'll be amazing. As for me...well, Sister Gulla was the trainer of Sister Jones' first transfer, but Sister Gulla has been assigned to train a new sister from Micronesia. That being said, I have been assigned to be Sister Jones' trainer for her second transfer!  So, I guess you could call me her **step-mom = )  I am so excited, nervous, overwhelmed, and happy. I know that the Lord qualifies whom He calls, I just hope that I can fulfill this calling in the way that He wants me to!   (Note from Editor:  **Sister missionary lingo)
Sister Jones and Me

Also, I just want to say Happy Veterans Day, and thank you to all of my family members and friends who are Veterans. Thank you for all you do, and all that you have done to serve this country! I am forever grateful for all the time and life that you have sacrificed for our sake and for those you have helped. Thank you!

WELL, here are the Miracles:

Miracle #1 
Being our last week online together, Sister Gamba and I definitely ended it with a bang (btw, I'm still online for next transfer) !! These past couple of days we were chatting, and had two very similar experiences. So the first, we were chatting with a girl who has been meeting with the missionaries but had a couple random questions. After we answered her questions we continued to chat and learn more about her and her interest in the church. She said she didn't really "get" God until she learned more about the restored gospel. After that everything made sense (Amen) ! We bore testimony, and expressed how much Heavenly Father loves her and what a blessing it is that we can be baptized to make that step to be closer to making our eternal goal. We then invited her to prepare herself to baptism! She said YES!! The spirit was so strong during her chat. She said that she would let the missionaries know that she is ready to be baptized!! CHEE-HOOO! Hah, so amazing. THEN, we were chatting with another girl who said she had met with the missionaries once, but didn't really have the time to meet with them again. She had a question about the spirit, and knowing whether or not she has felt it before. After asking her what she thought it would feel like, we explained that it is a feeling of peace, comfort, and a clear understanding of things. She didn't respond for a long time...then she said...that's exactly what I felt. She said she just felt loved, and so warm inside. We taught her that she was feeling the spirit and that if she is baptized, she will have the opportunity to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost; a gift that will be with you as long as you live worthy to have it with you! All she said was, "are you serious?" Haha, she was pretty happy about that. So then we extended the invitation of baptism to her as well. She said yes! She said that she would call the missionaries tomorrow (today), and set up an appointment so she can prepare herself. It was AMAZING! I love this gospel. 
Miracle #2 
Our investigator from New Zealand, we have been teaching her for a while now, has a testimony of the gospel, but still isn't 100% sure about everything. We asked how her scripture reading and prayers were going? She said she definitely prayed every day, but had not been reading from The Book of Mormon for a long time now. We taught her an awesome lesson about faith using the analogy of a seed. We asked her what would happen to a seed of an apple tree that never received water or sunlight...."It would die." So then we of course asked what would happen if she was not continually nourishing her spirit?..."It's gonna die, too." She got it =) We then shared the scripture  2 Nephi 32:3 "Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do." This scripture was perfect for her....for everyone! So many times we get caught up in life that we forget to put God first. But as we do put Him first and nourish our spirits, we will be made strong, and we will have guidance in ALL things. She accepted our invite to read at least one chapter a day! So that was definitely a miracle.

Miracle #3 
Staph infection is almost gone =)

Miracle #4 
We had a tour from Norway in the Visitor center on Sunday, and it was really neat. When it gets too crowded we often times have to split as companions and take tours separately. Well, that happened yesterday, so I took these four, 25 maybe 26-year-olds, on a tour. None of them really grew up with religion, so it was a really neat experience to teach them the Restoration of Christ's church back on to the earth again. They loved that, and loved the temple. I was then prompted to guide them to the Book of Mormon table where we have copies in 83 different languages....including Norwegian. I explained to them that The Book of Mormon was a record testifying of Jesus Christ in the ancient Americas, and they thought that was very interesting. I testified that the truth of God is on the earth today and if you want to learn more about it, we invite you to read this book. Having pre-set the guest cards we have, I handed them each one explaining that if you were interested in having a book for yourself, we would love to send missionaries to come bring you a free copy. Two of them put their numbers, but no requests, and then one of them, a girl, she asked if she could have the missionaries bring her one! It was really neat. I love this mission. It's just so crazy to see that even though we are in Hawaii, we get to teach people all over the world as well. BEST MISSION EVER!
Alright, time is almost up =/ But I have a ton of pictures from this past week. That's what happens when you neglect to take any the whole transfer, hah, whoops! A lot of them are with Sister Yau who is going home to Hong Kong =(  So of course we had to take a bajillion pictures! 
I just want to end with my testimony of how true this gospel is. I will never be able to deny the blessings and the transformations for good that this truth brings into people's lives. This gospel only brings peace and happiness. I know that God is perfect, and I know that we do not understand all of God's mysteries; but we don't need to. All we need is to know that truth has been restored, and that Jesus Christ lived and died so that we can live again with God. As we keep God's commandments, it will set us free and bring everlasting happiness! I am so grateful to be a missionary, especially during this great time where God's army of missionaries are assembling. Thank you for your love, support, and prayers. I am so grateful to be a missionary, and I don't think I ever want to go home. Hope that's alright with you, mom ; ) Keep opening your mouths and sharing the gospel. Share those pass along cards! We get calls all the time from people who found one or received one. You never know who will use their agency to find truth!

Love you all,
Sister Moyes

Aloha family and friends!

I hope everyone is safe and sound with Hurricane Sandy. We definitely heard all about it from our guests and from our members. Sounded pretty scary. As my dad told me in his e-mail, "This too shall pass." Know that you have been in our prayers, and will continue to be. On that note, it is still the weirdest feeling seeing pictures from everyone seeing that fall is there, and snow is even falling! Today at the grocery store, they were already set up and ready with all the Christmas candies and decorations. I can't even describe how weird it is. It's like time doesn't really pass by here. Makes you appreciate the seasons a little more.

Well, although the seasons don't change, sicknesses still spread during this time of year. I feel really bad because I don't have too much to report for this week. After much persuasion I was finally convinced to go see the doctor. I was thinking maybe I had another sinus infection, or possibly strep, but turns out I have Staph. Unfortunately, I was forced to seclude myself from anyone for at least 48 hours (except my companion of course), and so we didn't leave the house for about 3 days, one of them just being that I was still feeling a lot of pain in my head, and did not have the energy I needed to do the online work fully focused. I was so grateful for the gospel, even more so, when I knew that I could ask for a blessing, through the many (any) worthy Priesthood holders that we have here in Laie. My recovery has definitely been quicker than expected, and I know that it's time to get back to work!!

With our area, the 19-year-old boy from my last letter, he gave us a scare when he e-mailed saying that he "did not want the Mormon church contacting him anymore. Thank you." Bahhh, we about cried. We e-mailed him and then called him, and he told us that the missionaries came to deliver the Book of Mormon he had ordered online, when he thought it would just come through the mail. The missionaries showed up and his mom FREAKED. So, the mom immediately called the Pastor to come over and lecture him about why he is a catholic and that he was a disgrace for looking at any other church. He then told us he got really scared, and didn't know what else to do. Sister Gamba and I both bore our testimonies of the truthfulness of the gospel. We helped remind him the many different accounts he has been assured that this is truth, and this IS the path that will lead him to feel everlasting happiness. We  taught him that if this was the true church on the earth today, that God would provide a way for him to be taught the gospel. He liked that promise. It was interesting to find out that his brother is actually a member of the church. Guessing maybe that's why the mom wasn't so happy =/ 

Besides that, nothing too much new. Oh, hah, we had a talent show for Halloween! SOOO much fun. The Elders put together a wayyyyy too choreographed song to a backstreet boy song...."Ain't nothing but a heart ache, I never want to hear you say...I want it that way!" Haha, it was pretty hilarious. They started it first with an introduction with one of the Elders getting Dear Johned. As Sisters, we were all pretty impressed, haha. It was fun. 

 Then today, for our P-day, my first day really outside, we decided to go on a hike up a mountain called Crouching Lion! It was incredible.

Online these past couple of days has been really interesting with the election going on, that's for sure. But, our mission is trying to reach 1200 baptisms for the year. The mission has never reached past 1101, and we are at about 900 baptisms so far. Meaning= it's time to work and go find 300 more to baptize before the end of the year!!!! We're pumped! Our zone already has 20 set up for this month, and cannot wait to see the miracles that are in store for those we find. There is not better feeling than finding the elect; those who have truly prepared their lives and have continued to search for truth! They are so amazing. Speaking of, I was able to see my recent convert, Mai, at church, and she is stronger than ever! This gospel is true. We invite everyone to taste of this fruit for yourself and tell us if it is not true!! Read the Book of Mormon, study it, ponder it, and pray to know if it is true! I can testify that you will receive an answer, and as we act upon it, our lives will only be blessed! I love being a missionary, but don't forget that you don't have to be wearing a badge to share the gospel! 

Love you all so much.
