So I am being transferred to Anthem Stake. Which, rumor has it, it is the highest tithing paying stake in the world... I am not sure if it is true or not. But I would like to think that. I am excited to go from covering three stakes to one ward the size of my PINKY NAIL! I am going to be able to walk the area... 100 times a day! Sister Stoker is going to be my new companion. I am BEYOND excited to be a companion with a Sister Training Leader. I hope that we finally get to go on exchanges with other STLs. I think that will benefit a lot of sisters. I am just excited for this transfer. I am praying for humility- so pray for me!! :) We, Sister Stoker and I, have decided that we are not going to use the car at all. not for meetings, not for anything. We are even going to ride our bikes to church. 

This week has been crazy. This morning we have been going crazy at the Nellis Air Force Base! I will have to send pictures next week. I love it so much- I am really going to miss this area. I am pleased with the way I am leaving it though- there are many people set for baptism and people who are dedicated to living this gospel more. I have seen an IMMENSE change in Temple View YSA. I am grateful for all my friends that I have made here in Sunrise! GAH! I just wish that I could express in words what this ward has done for me. I have been doing a little too much expressing in tears lately... Anyways! about what happened this week.

We taught A MILLION lessons. I am so happy :) We have been working really hard with the people who are border line and seeing if they will progress or should be dropped until they are ready to do more. OH FUNNY THING: Here is an example of one not ready to make commitments to the Lord. We went to a lesson with a guy named Brian. First sign: he opened the door with no shirt on, and didn't put one on until we had asked him to. We continued on to say the opening prayer and read 1st Nephi chapter 1 to get a jump start on his reading with him. There is a verse at the end of that chapter that talks about tender mercies and we explained what that meant to each of us. Second sign: he answered with sex and drugs... YUP. Moving on. He is just a goof that need to grow up just a little (and I mean this in the nicest of ways) so that he will be more willing to keep commitments. 

Example of someone who IS prepared: Joe! He was meeting with us for a while when Sister Kelepi first got here but then a lot of hard things were happening in his life so he decided that he wanted to take a break. He came to church last week (he called a member all on his own for a ride) and he told us he needed to set up a time to meet with us. We taught him solid for a week- when he was running a few minutes behind he would call and let us know where he was at. He called frantic when he couldn't find his Book of Mormon... Yesterday we had a lesson with him and we invited him to be baptized when he told us that he was praying about a date for a while. He wants to be baptized on his birthday at the end of April. It will be his REbirthday too! :)

This has been a miraculous week. I am really grateful to have had Sister Kelepi as a companion. She has a tender spot in my heart. I love to wake up and see her smile every morning. I love that she has a sense of humor that can keep me laughing all day long. I love that we can play pranks and poke on each other and just... be myself! In fact-- last night I bit a tiny whole in the bottom of my water bottle and squirted at her while she was driving to our last appointment. When she tried to grab it from me to throw it out the window, I just reached over and took the cap off. It went ALL OVER her lap!! It was definitely one of the funniest things that has happened in a long time! :)

Smiling in Sunrise- for one more day!

ONE MORE WEEK IN sunRISE! I can not even believe how fast the time has gone by!

I am torn. I know that I am leaving this next week so all of my spare time is spent packing. It is so hard to go though 9 months of memories. I love my family here in Sunrise and it is already hard to leave. I am really grateful for all the people who have helped me change my life. I know that I will be back to visit and I will have plenty of places to stay! I can not wait to introduce all of you to the people that are so close to the temple! I have been able to see the wonderful transformation of so many people- my ward, companions, investigators, recent converts, friends, and myself. I know I am rambling but this isn't a feeling I have felt before. I am grateful to the Lord for all His miracles He miracles He shared with us this week. We were able to meet so many people with so much potential this week. I promised Sister Neider that I would leave this area with a million dollars hidden in every pocket! And that is what He is helping us to do!
We are teaching a sweet girl named Marly. She had a bad experience with Elders in the past. They told her to read chapters of the Book of Mormon and to write a page essay about it so they know she understood it. She told them that she hated the Book of Mormon because of that. We know that isn't true. It's like when you hate cleaning your room because your mom forces you to, but you love having a clean room... We read a chapter with her and it turns out she just doesn't understand a lot of the lingo. So we answered a few of her questions and promised to read on her own. She is so cute. She decided that she wants to pick her own baptism date- she wants to pray and read and go to church until she recieves her answer but she knows she will get it!
I am sorry I have been bad at telling stories. I will keep a note card with me this week so I can tell you all about this week next Monday! I am too excited to go out and teach today! :) Write me??
I love you all!! Like more than I have ever been able to explain!

Sister Kelepi and I matched his week. 1st time on purpose and 2nd time on accident!

Hurry... I am going crazy sitting at this computer!

This computer is fast. With one exception; loading pictures. So I have spent most of my time doing that. I am going to bullet point this week!  :) I love everyone! I hope that you had a fabulous week! I certainly did. I feel like I am sprinting, and I love it!
  • Monday I had a DR apt in the other mission: those are complete for a while!! WOO HOO! I'm not dying!! :)
  • We taught Elisha this week after a long break. She seems like now is a good, humble time for her to be learning more. Her baby is so cute. I am happy that she let us in. We talked about the Book of Mormon and she admitted to staying up a little too late to read- we were far from disappointed in her! 
  • Tuesday was Zone Conference- my favorite trainings were about eating healthy and companionship unity. I love Sister Kelepi. I want to tell her all the time that she is the best ever so that she knows it too. I have also resolved to have green smoothies for breakfast. Gotta look good at Craig's wedding! I only have 6 months left on my mission!
  • We exchanged with Northstar. I was Sister Roberts companion in their area.
  • no exchanges we taught a lesson to a less active member and committed him to keeping the sabbath day holy. Within 48 hours his friend called him to offer him a job- he took it and promised to never miss a Sunday again! #miracles!!
  • We street contacted a young, black, Protestant minister. He talked most of the time about how much he loves how Mormon girls dress. He said that he thinks we are "fabulous," "super cute," and "just the most adorable things he's ever seen." Then he told us all about his boyfriend Rashard. We would be friends!! hahaha
  • We love Karina Wiberg and Denise McDade! Just sayin'
  • We had an emergency Sister Training Leader's Meeting. Turns out is was to get us all together so we could be the pictures for the cover story on Desert News when the April general conference comes out! Be looking out for that! I am excited!
  • Sister Pence, Bohling, Berger and I went down to Havasu on Saturday for the Sanchez' baptism! I love their family so much!! Their testimonies after were so tender. It was so cute to watch them hug. They were talking the whole time about how they can't wait to be a forever family. As much fun as it was to see all my old friends my favorite part was watching Sister Sanchez watch her husband get baptized! That is what JOY looks like.
I am so grateful for my opportunity to be here on a mission. I see miracles every day! Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us like family-because that is exactly what we are. I love to be here, and I love to know that I will be able to come and visit my holy land when ever I want! I am so blessed. I miss you, family. I think of you often and I feel your prayers! You are my heart!!
With all my love!

TEMPLE TRIP! We did comp study at the temple on Sunday. The weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!

MORNING SPORTS!! This was the other team this morning!

OUR TEAM! not as cool... hahaa

These two lovely folks are The Egans. I love them with all my heart. You can't see their tags in this picture but they are full-time proselyting missionaries. Elder Egan served his first mission in Mexico. They are now in our zone and I seriously wish I could just follow them around for a day to learn to be more successful!



Me, The Bergster! and Brother HAAAAAAAAUCK! (Arizona's finest ward mission leader!)

SO many people in Nevada have personalized license plates. Here are just a few... 

What else can be said!?

Sad day?
