Hello Family!This week has been a week of miracles. And big miracles to boot. It was great! So last monday, I mentioned that we were meeting with a potential investigator and his name was Bryan. We had dinner with him and a member came with us. It was a little awkward but he is very interested and we are really excited.

Hello!So I'm sure you are all wondering where my new area is. Well I think that you will be very surprised. I have returned to an old area! I am back in South Royalton at the JSMB(Joseph Smith Memorial Building)!!!!! Yes. I am. It is kindof crazy, but I am here, and boy has it been busy. My companion is Sister Smedley and we used to go on exchanges when we were in Maine, so I already knew her and that she was a Visitor Center Sister, and well I had a feeling we would one day be companions. And now we are! It is great.
I guess this week back has been very fun! And busy! we have been going all over, plus with everything else that is going on it has been crazy!
It all started with the Largest Transfer meeting since President Stoker has had since he came out. It was huge! There were so many missionaries there. All of my past companions were there and it was good to see them.
We then hopped in that car and headed up to South Royalton VT. There we stopped by a few members and said hi and tried to get in contact with a few less actives. We helped our ward mission leader with some service and all together had a very busy day.
So I learned a lot at Zone conference. We are going to be trying a but of things with the people we are teaching to help them. I am so excited.
mormon.org/becauseofhim it looks really good and I suggest you post it to your facebook somehow.we went to Stake conference. that was good. then we come home ran up to the JSM and gave some tours, because we had a New Member fireside here. President Stoker and Sister Stoker both spoke at that. We made some brownies and cookies for it. It was really good. I got to see missionaries that I've worked with before and members. It was really fun! So one of the things that they want us to do is share this website
Well that is all for this week. We have been busy busy and I love it! There are a bunch of new senior couples here at the JSM for me to meet and get to know and I am excited to be able to be back and am lucky enough to be blessed with this second chance to serve here. :)
Love you all!

Hello family and friends!
Ok this week was crazy!I was sick so nothing to report there, then . Oh that was a great day! We went to contact some less actives and tract. Well none were very interested, but it was great. We had fun talking to people. We then went and contacted a media referral that we got the other day. well we went and contacted her and said her mom sent us. Well she hasn't talked with her mom in 5 months! So she was really surprised and open. For some reason we didn't teach her the first lesson, we gave her the articles of faith. It was a really good lesson. I could definitely feel the spirit and I really want to keep teaching her. Unfortunately I will not be able to do that. We then had dinner at Judi's house. That was fun. Her 5 dogs are so cute!
Saying goodbye and trying to get all packed up has made this a very stressful day. We have been all over the place trying to get everything taken care of. I hope that it will all work out and things will be good, but I must say that these past few days have really put on the stress.
So today I got another miracle. Do you remember Mikkel, the investigator online from when I was at the JSBM? Well he e-mailed me today and he has a baptismal date! I am so excited! His parents have gone from complete and total anti to letting him get baptized! It isn't until August, but he has waited this long, I know that things will work out. So even though I am leaving I know that blessing are still happening and the Lord is furthering his work. :D
Love you to the end of an exponential function and back!
