I have a Mormon in my cupboard?

December 14th 2015:

What do carnivores eat in space?

All I have to say is I love Peggy so much! She got baptized right before I got here. We have a recent convert lesson with her once a week, and I look forward to it every time. She has been through a lot, she is hands down one of the sweetest 59 year old ladies I know! Anyways, I was looking at her bookshelf, and I saw a book written by Glen Beck. I asked her if she knew that he was Mormon, and she said " I have a Mormon in my cupboard?". I love her and I want to bring her home with me. 

It is hard being away from home during the Holidays, but it is also a really fun time to be a missionary! People are just so much nicer and more receptive. We went caroling this last week with some lovely ward members, Taylor and Kiana (Don't worry I whispered the songs so they couldn't hear my angelic voice). Everyone that opened the door first looked shocked, but then had the biggest smile on their face. I loved it! It was a great way to share the special Christmas spirit. 
This last week we met a lady named Jasmine. She has the cutest family! We met her outside her house. We said a prayer with her and got a return appointment. We went to her house for her appointment, she didn't answer. We were a little bummed, but not surprised, because it wouldn't be the first time. Sister Morgan and I decided to finish tracting her street, once we got to the end of the street we prayed to know what to do next. After we finished we looked at Jasmines house, and saw someone getting out of the car. We went back to her house, and knocked on her. She answered and of course had forgotten but still let us in. We taught her the Restoration. When Sister Morgan shared the Jospeh Smiths Vision the spirit was SO STRONG. Her eyes were locked on the picture. We talked about how baptism can give her a fresh start, and she said "I want that!" I replied " we can help you with that. The spirit was so strong in the room, I felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest!!! It was a great lesson. We set a date for January 9th. We are excited to watch her make the changes she desires! 

Well I hope you all have a great week! Also, you should all watch a savior is born, and share it EVERYWHERE!
