YOUTHS!!

We had a bomb Zone Conference on Tuesday with a lot of new changes!!

One change is that we are working with the youth a lot more!! We are super excited to keep moving forward and progressing. So we get to take out the youth for a couple hours to be our "mini missionaries" And through this, we are helping them to strengthen their propio (own testimonies) testimonios and helping them get excited about the work! And then in time we will help them identify their friends that we can teach and baptize! And then the youth will be stronger and when they go on their missions, they will be even more excited to do missionary work.

I still love it here and am so grateful to be learning so much. 

Remember that God always loves you and that no matter what happens, He will never give up on you.

Satan's working hard

Yes! Satan is trying to destroy everything here! He has been attacking our recent converts, investigators and us!! Ack!

Different things have been happening with all our people, we've lost contact with investigators, Miguel got sick, no one came to church, we were sad a little this week, and Satan was just getting everybody!! But all the while we were thinking "Miracles are going to happen because of all this bad stuff!!" It isn't the first time this has happened, and it's only because we are WORKING!! And we are trying to stretch and grow and do all that is required of us! So we are working through trials and trying to keep the Spirit and we're going to have Zone Conference tomorrow, and then Zone meeting after! Yay!

Tuesday (Happy birthday DAD!!) we got to go to the stake breakfast (I had pancakes for the first time in months, and had a headache for the rest of the day because of all the sugar I ate :/ ), and we sang all three verses of the Star Spangled Banner, had district meeting and other than that had a pretty chill 4th of July!

Wednesday we had a BOMB coordination meeting (with all the auxiliary heads, talking about missionary work). The AP's made a plan with the ward members and we jumped on it to make a goal for how many baptisms each auxiliary will have by the end of the year, and the room was yeno del Espiritu miercoles, y(full of the spirit, Wednesday, and) it was just so cool. I loved it.

STORY TIME!! So we got this referral from this guy, his name was Jose, of one of his neighbors. Anyways, so we went by it and this lady opened up and said "I don't have a lot of time right now, I'm cooking". So we dropped it and didn't think more of it. BUT we went by yesterday and a different lady (the other one was probably the housekeeper) opened up and she's like "oh, you are from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You are Mormons." AND it turns out that she went to church from ages 6 to 15 in Mexico!! So we found a less-active!! And what's more, she gave us a TON of fruit (see picture below.) it was so cool. It was such a tender mercy!! And we asked if we could come back wednesday, and she's like "how about Tuesday?" YESSSS!!!! She is such a sweetie, and we met her husband and daughter (15) and it was just so cool. :D

Love y'all! The church is true! Read your scriptures!!
(And happy late birthday Matthew!!)

Sister Koehler made red pepper pasta. And we ate it at 10pm Monday night BOMB.
 
 
we have incorporated smoothies into our routine. Now I have my eggs/rice/spinach/pepper bowl and a smoothie--and yes I drink all of it before we study, then another glass of water while we study. Stay hydrated kids!!
 
 
all the treasures from our less-active!!

Seeking the Spirit

We had interviews on Tuesday and President Torres said that he's noticed some changes in me over the past few transfers, but now he's like "WOAH sister Fry you are the greatest missionary ever and you've changed a lot, and you are just so great". haha. Not exactly but I have changed a lot recently. And I've noticed that I'm back to "me" don't really know how to explain that, but whatever.

Set some BD's this week, had a TON at sacrament meeting. Please someone tell me how hymn 152 goes in Spanish because I don't have any idea what the heck we were playing and I butchered it so bad. I feel so bad. :/

BUT back to the Subject of this email: after interviews we had to hang at the office for a little while because Sister Phalwane has to figure out how to get home (#expiredgreencard--she's going to take the bus) ANYWAYS, so the Zone Leaders were going to do a little study session with those that weren't in interviews, but it turned out to just be Sister Ellsworth and I and the Zone Leaders. Anyways, they had a "special guest" come to one of their companion study sessions and he talked about having the Spirit and how  we really don't know what the mission of the Holy Ghost is. So he said (and invited us) to study in the Topical Guide about the Mission of the Holy Spirit. BOMB so cool!! And they talked about how after Jesus came to the Americas how the people were righteous for 4 generations after that! WHY? Because they wanted the SPIRIT more than anything else. I am a witness of this because Sister E and I have been trying to seek to have the Spirit in every aspect and we are already reaping the blessings of this. And we've been happy! If we seek the Spirit, then we are truly being instruments in the hands of God and we are doing His will, and therefore (this is so cool) He will RUN OUR AREA. 

And I love that.


Happy Birthday tomorrow Dad! And Matthew on Thursday!!! Love you!
Love ya!
