October 27 – Con todo mi corazón, alma, mente y fuerza

28 Oct

Whoa. I truly have mixed feelings writing this. Part of me doesn’t want to write it and part of me wants to make it the most paramount email of my life haha. But I think I’ll just speak from the heart and hope that the Spirit will touch you in the way that you might need.

Thank you so much for each of you who emailed me today. Those words were inspired and touched me. Thank you for being my number one fans 🙂 I love you!

This week has flown by and brought so many miracles! R is doing amazing. Perhaps not in situation but her spirit and testimony is growing! T is still in the hospital but they hope he will be able to come home for a little bit before having to go back for another treatment. This family has a huge part of my heart 🙂 Every time we go see R and T (T is in isolation and we can only speak to him via phone but R comes out and sits with us) it’s pretty hard because T is so fragile. But at the same time it is so inspiring. R understands the gospel. She talks to us and it’s amazing to hear her testimony- about how she knows that Heavenly Father has T here for a purpose (that he’s truly in His hands) or that she has stopped smoking and drinking coffee because she just no longer has the desire (we threw out her cigarettes with her!) because she sees a bigger picture of God’s plan for us. She even has said that without this experience she probably wouldn’t be as close to Christ as she is now.

We also had a really cool lesson yesterday with a part member family. The daughter (19ish) has been a member for pretty much her whole life and the other daughter (7) also comes to church because their aunt has brought them. The Mom, I, is not a member. But we know that she has had a good experience with the Book of Mormon and says that one day she sees herself joining. Missionaries have gone a long time ago but nothing since. So we’ve have been working with them. They are an awesome family! I love the love they have for each other and you can really feel the spirit every time we go. Yesterday they had us over for dinner (awesome food from Guyana!). We showed a mormon message about the restoration of the church. It was where a bunch of youth share their feelings about the restoration on their visit to Palmyra. It was really neat as we all talked about what we felt about the blessings of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. You could feel the Spirit. And after a bit I was like, “I would like to go there to where it happened. Maybe we could go next summer as a family”. Her daughter was like, “Yeah! Let’s go!”. You can see how happy it makes her daughter as her Mother feels the spirit. She’s coming closer and closer to Christ!

Also, you should probably know. I said I’d ask my parents if we might be able to join! Hahaha I know that you’ve always wanted to go Mom. Porque no right?

Anyways, I have so many other stories!!! And I have like no time. But one more. We went to visit a sister who just had surgery on her hand. She has been pretty bored so they asked us to visit her. She’s pretty awesome. So we were there and joking around in the beginning and getting to know her more. And then bam! We found out that she hasn’t been to the temple for endowments. In fact she knew a little about it but really not and her reasons for not getting her endowment was really because she didn’t understand it and thought she had to do stuff before that you don’t have to do. So we just had an awesome lesson about the temple and now we are going to help her prepare to receive her endowments. I just love how the Lord works and how we went there not really knowing she needed that but then God just provided a way for us to help her and for her to start preparing to go to the temple! It seriously felt so fulfilling and wonderful!

The mission has been the most amazing experiences of my life. It truly has changed me (at least I think and hope so). But I know for sure that my testimony has grown and that my understanding of the gospel has deepened. I love our Savior Jesus Christ and love more than anything serving Him and being a representative of Him. I am grateful that that never stops. Ever. Maybe without the name tag but I will never stop testifying of His love and His truth. I may not be perfect and I know I have a lot to learn and grow but I will forever strive to serve Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength. And don’t worry. I will not lessen my enthusiasm or devotion to serve Him right to the end. I know that God lives. I know that He loves us. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that through Joseph Smith the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in its fullness and glory. I know that there is a Prophet today who leads and guides the church. I know that striving our best to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to find true, lasting happiness and peace in this world and in our next phase of life. I have studied and prayed for myself and I have felt of the peace and truth for myself. I’ve shared this before but I would love to share it again, one more time. This is my favourite scripture because I feel that it speaks exactly how I feel and will strive for 🙂

“And I saw that I must soon go down to my grave, having been wrought upon by the power of God that I must preach and prophesy unto this people, and declare the word according to the truth which is in Christ. And I have declared it in all my days, and have rejoiced in it above that of the world. And I soon go to the place of my rest, which is with my Redeemer; for I know that in him I shall rest. And I rejoice in the day when my mortal shall put on immortality, and shall stand before him; then shall I see his face with pleasure, and he will say unto me; Come unto me, ye blessed, there is a place prepared for you in the mansions of my Father. Amen.” — Enos 1:26-27

I love you all. Thank you. Seriously, you mean the world to me. Have an amazing week! Keep being examples and reaching out to the one 🙂 They need you and we need them.

Love,
Hermana Godfrey 🙂

October 20 – babysteps

20 Oct

It was wonderful to hear from you guys today! Thanks for your inspiring words. They were exactly what I needed to hear today 🙂

What a wonderful week! Dad you would be so proud of me! So you know how growing up I used to make every excuse I could think of to get out of yard work? Well, this time I used every excuse I could think of to let us do yard work. And it was awesome! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned them before but a less active couple, the H’s, were a miracle for us this week. They let us in their home the week before so this week we went back, raked up leaves, pulled out weeds, cut the grass (and we still have a long way to go for our transformation project- but it’s a great reason to keep coming back!) and then had a wonderful meal and lesson with them. Seriously, I loved being out in the yard and working! It was so much fun! Also, Sister Alvarez is pretty fun/funny to hang out with so that helped too haha. But we loved it. During dinner we were really able to get to know them, hear their stories, how they came to find the church and what things are stopping them from coming. And then we had a simple but powerful lesson on the atonement of Jesus Christ. They really felt the spirit. They opened up and they want to come back. They are also pretty funny and it’s amazing to see the light of the gospel enter and change their lives. That’s what I love.

Another miracle this week was with Sister G and J. They are pretty wonderful. They too haven’t been to church in a while (more particularly J). Sister G is the mother and J is living with her until he moves into his place. We feel they are close to coming back too. So we went there and at the beginning I felt like I was there but not completely there (ya know what I mean) but I was trying. So then I just decided, well, I’ve got to move! So I got up and just moved closer to them, so I could be in front of them and really be there with them and for them. And it worked. It was really neat, then Sister Alvarez came closer too (it was weird the way things are positioned in the home). They shared their experiences and as we listened, Sister G told us about her experience in the temple. And we were able to ask when was the last time she has been there? And would she like to go back and feel that peace again? And it turns out she has a whole list of names of her ancestors ready on paper that just need to be entered into the computer! How amazing is that?! And J, well, he too, we were able to direct the conversation and find out about how he feels God’s love in his life. He even said one of the prayers for us. When we invited them to church Sister G said yes! J said maybe haha. And to be honest, he was sincere about that maybe. But we prayed this week that they both would come to church. Some of the people we thought would come to church didn’t but some of them did! It was awesome. We had just finished our correlation with our ward mission leader and coming around the corner. I looked and there was J sitting in one of the chairs! It was such a great miracle 🙂

Oh and just one more because I loved hearing this. H. She is just progressing as she continues to find out more about the church and feels the Holy Ghost. This past week she had us over with her and her boyfriend and her Grandma. Her family is religious and her Grandma goes to church every sunday! Her Grandma is so nice and sweet. She asked us a bunch of questions about missionaries and what we believe and we would answer and then H would usually clarify and answer a lot better than we did haha. H’s awesome! Well, her Grandma apparently liked us a lot and this weekend was telling H how we were not what she was expecting at all and that she really enjoyed us and felt good. She also had some questions and asked H. H told us how she would answer and she was like, “It was really neat because as I was explaining it to her it felt like I would know what to say and that I was learning too as I said it.” Haha. Like, how amazing is that!? She also said that it felt really good to share it.

Can I just tell you how amazing it is to share the gospel?! It’s been so incredible this week to learn more about how the Saviour would teach and try to implement that into my life as a disciple of Jesus Christ. I love these people. So much. I love being about to listen to them, ask them inspired questions and then testify of Jesus Christ. Yesterday we had a pass off lesson to the spanish elders. Man, sometimes I get fustrated with my spanish because I’m not fluent (I’ve got some high expectations for myself haha. Some things take longer than what you wish but with God all things are possible) and sometimes I don’t understand or can’t express what I desire too. But then at one point during the lesson I just felt this feeling that maybe my spanish isn’t perfect. But that at the same time it is- because I can testify of Jesus Christ. Maybe this is chessy or maybe I’m becoing more latina haha but I want to bear my simple testimony in spanish.

Yo se que Jesucristo vive. Yo se que Jesucristo es el Redentor y el Salvador del mundo. Yo se que Dios es nuestro amaroso Padre Celestial quien nos conoce y nos ama- mas que podemos comprender. Yo se que la iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santo de los Ultimas Dias es la misma iglesia que Jesucrsito establecio cuando fue en la tierra. Yo se que Jose Smith restaurada la iglesia y que en esta epoca tenemos el sacerdocio otra vez en la tierra. Que grandioso es esta evangelio. Estoy muy agradacida por la oportunidad compartir la verda con las otras personas y invitar los demas venir mas cera a Jesucristo. Esta es mi obra y que grandioso es mi llamamiento!

Los quiero mucho,

Hermana Godfrey 🙂

October 13 – God and family

14 Oct

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Wow, I can hardly remember what happened this past week. But it’s been pretty good 🙂

This week I again had another confirmation that members are key to this work (after all, missionaries are here to help the members with their missionary work) but some cool things happened this week.

First, remember C? I’m pretty sure I mentioned him before. He’s the guy that has had kinda a rough past and is working changing some things in his life. Well, we went there with a member this week. It was amazing because they just clicked. Not that they are the same age or even have the same interests but because they could relate to each other. She (the member) was really able to talk to C and help him realize he really wants/needs to make these changes. Also, C prayed more this week and it was wonderful! And he was just so willing to start and say the first prayer. Pretty cool. We are excited.

Also, same day we had a neat experience with a less active. We have been trying to get into the door of this one family. We went before and she made up an excuse to not let us in. We went again this week and we had a member with us. At first, she saw us and was like, “You know, you always come at a bad time. Don’t you know that…” and then she saw the member and was like, “Oh Pat! Hey. Well… come on in.” By the end of it we found out all about her and we set up a time to come help her with some service she needs. She was like, “And you might as well come for dinner too!” Haha it was perfect. And all thanks to our members 🙂

I love these experiences. Good and bad. Although, I can’t really remember the bad ones that well. It just is wonderful. I love it, every minute of being a servant of Jesus Christ. I can’t wait to continue to serve these people and learn more from all of these experiences. Thank you for your love and prayers.

Also, I loved this talk. It’s so simple these steps. And yet I have a renowned love and understanding of these principles. If you have time to read it go for it, if not check out the little video highlight on the right side of the page. https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2014/10/make-the-exercise-of-faith-your-first-priority?lang=eng

Hope that works.

Okay, I love you! Happy Thanksgiving 😀 Two things I am grateful for all year round, God and family 🙂

Love,
Hermana Godfrey 🙂

October 6 – Just in case they kick us off the computers…

6 Oct

Here is a little excerpt that I sent to President Patrick. I’m not sure if I will have time to elaborate. But here is at least this! 🙂

This was seriously a week of miracles!! It is just so amazing to see how Heavenly Father works! We have just found so many more investigators- 4 from Croatia and we already have 2 and there is so much potential. We also have a great investigator, H, she is the girlfriend of a less active (but investigating for the right reasons) and she came to conference this weekend and when we asked her how she liked it she told us about how she loved that they (the Prophet and leaders) said they were learning too and learning from us too. She said she felt like sharing the things she learnt with others and when we told her it was the Holy Ghost she kinda teared up and said, “Yeah, I thought so”. Wow. Just so amazing. Honestly, I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for allowing me to see and be a part of these miracles in His work.

Love you all!

Okay, so far so good. They haven’t kicked us off 🙂 The computers at the church have a different internet thing and weren’t working today so we had to go to a store… and pray that we would haven sufficient time before they say anything haha.

Croatia. Seriously, milagros!!!! We have been teaching this one family (more the Mom than anyone). She is the one with two boys, R and V (V has cancer). The boys are sooooo cute and absolutely wonderful! R is so happy and excited to see us and T (V’s nickname) is so strong. I love when I can make T laugh- it feels like the best thing in the world. Well, R (mom) progressed so much in the gospel this week. We had one lesson with her and she had these questions and we didn’t have enough time to answer all of them. So we gave her some homework to read and find out the answers. Her questions? One, what does the Book of Mormon say about the apocalypse? And two, what happens after this life? Wow. And guess what?! We came back the next day and she had read ALL of the Plan of Salvation and ALL of the scriptures that were in the Book of Mormon (she didn’t have a Bible) and even more than what it asked!!! And then we started that lesson with having her tell her father (her parents live with her but only speak Croatian) how to pray and we invited him to say the opening prayer. Well, he did. And we looked up and saw both of them with tears in their eyes. He had said a beautiful and powerful prayer. We could feel it too. They just cried with the feelings of the spirit for a moment. Well, we knew that we had to teach him too. So Sister Alvarez spent the time looking up different articles in Croatian on their phone and sharing with him while I talked with R (mom) about the Plan of Salvation. Well, it was just amazing! R (mom) just explained the entire Plan of Salvation to me and it was perfect and she really understood it too. She told me of times she has felt the Holy Ghost in her life.

Now the story doesn’t end here. It just gets better haha.

So N, she is a friend of R. She was there with us for one of her lessons once and we shared the video “Because of Him” with them. N really felt the Spirit too. We were so excited and happy to teach her too. But we got the wrong apartment number and didn’t find her. But the other day she got a cell phone and she showed up at the end of the lesson. We invited her to conference the next day but things happened that she couldn’t. However, she called us up and she was like (in her broken english- she’s awesome) “I need to see you.” She said she wanted us to teach her. So we went there that night. R came with us. And it was great because we got there and asked if we could start with a prayer. Well, N gathered her family to come for the prayer (we weren’t really expecting that), there was her brother, her brother’s girlfriend and the girlfriend’s mom/family friend. Well, we taught all of them. R interpreted for us. But even more that than R shared her experience with all of them from the beginning of her journey in the gospel and defended the church and was just like, “and if you are willing, they will teach you too”. When we asked them if they would be baptized by someone who holds priesthood authority of God if they came to find out that these things are true, they said yes. And N, she was like, “Well, yes. Of course.” Oh yeah, and N was like, “Yeah! I felt it (the Spirit) too already!”.

Whoa. And where they live there are so many people from Croatia. It is just exploding with potential. So we are going to try and pick up a little Croatian too (I’m still working on Spanish too haha) and we have a member (actually it’s Brother J) who speaks Croatian and is more than willing to help us out with that. We are just so excited!

Okay, and one last quick story because it’ s one of my favourites from this week 🙂

We have an investigator, H. She is dating one of the members and she really wants to find out for herself what we are all about haha. She’s seriously super amazing. I love teaching her and getting to know her more! Anyways, we invited her to general conference this weekend and she ended up coming to the last session! It was awesome! She was right there taking notes. Haha she said she felt a little weird when they addressed specifically those who were not members of the church (but I think it really helped her too). But one of the things I loved most that she said was that none of them considered themselves better than the rest. Sorry just got kicked off. Well, enjoy! Love you all 😀 Life is beautiful 🙂

Love,
Hermana Godfrey

September 29 – Cat bites and inspiration

30 Sep

My dearest family, this has been a good week. And kinda crazy too haha. This past Thursday we had the opportunity to go teach a Mother and her daughter (ysa age) who are starting/trying to come back to church. They are pretty neat and it was great to be there. We wanted to get to know them more and really understand what goals and struggles they had and really just where they saw themselves in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We got to know them but I couldn’t think of what to say that would really help them and touch them. Well, side story… they have a cat. And they said he wasn’t the nicest. Anyways, the cat was doing its own thing but then it came closer to us. They were a bit hesitant but the cat wasn’t doing anything bad so we went on. Haha so it decided to jump up to the couch we were on and walk over Sister Alvarez and then over to me. It was fine. I didn’t even try to pet it or touch it but carried on as normal. Then it started to like purr or whatever and after two seconds out of nowhere it just bit my hand! Hmmm… I was writing the story out in more detail but it sounded a bit intense haha so I’ve decided to just tell you that I got bit by a cat. They cleaned me all up and it was good. But best part, because of the incident (at least right after the incident) I was sitting back on the couch and thinking about it. And I knew that this directly linked with the atonement. We clearly knew that we needed to testify of Jesus Christ. It was so neat to see that through that anology the spirit worked and touched them. It was really neat. And the Mom came to women’s conference and church this past week!

(About the bite, We put polysporin and stuff on it and cleaned it out again and again. But then the next day it was worse and my hand swollen. So Sister Patrick (mission President’s wife- who is soooooo awesome) found out a bit more about cat bites and decided I should go to the hospital. It was a long night at the hospital (but miraculously fast at the same time) and now I have antibiotics. So I guess I also got my injury story of the mission!)

Okay and also, we found some other cool people who are interested in learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ. First is I. She is really neat and they are such a beautiful family! There is I, the mother and her two daughters (18 and 7). The one daughter is a member because her aunt (I’s sister) took her to church when she was younger and the other daughter is starting to come to church. Well, they want the youngest daughter to start taking the lessons to prepare her for her baptism because that’s what she wants. Her birthday isn’t until June but it is such a great opportunity to teach them as a family. The Mom was taught for a little bit before by the missionaries and had a good spiritual experience about the Book of Mormon. She says she is too busy with work though right now but talks as if one day she will be a member. But. We had a powerful lesson about the Book of Mormon and it was so wonderful because the one daughter bore her testimony to her mother and it was just great. The Mom seems ready, ready to learn more about the restored gospel. And they like us too haha! So we are going to continue teaching them 🙂

And also, C. One day we were in the car and Sister Alvarez saw this man on the sidewalk and was like, “I feel we should go talk to him”. So we did. He is overcoming some addictions but really wants to change his life around and said that maybe this was an answer to his prayers. Anyhow, we went there with his Mom (the power of a mothers prayer! whoa. never understood but wow. prayers are powerful) and taught him a lesson. He is hilarious! He’s got some important and hard things to change in his life but we know that it is more than possible- one step at a time and through the power and strength of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Like, he had a drink and wanted to smoke but when we asked him if he could wait until we were gone he was like, “oh. yeah, no problem” and then just put it away. It was actually really cool. He really has so much potential. And he lives in this area a bit farther away in our sector and we are super excited to get to work in that area more (there is a less active family there too).

I just love this gospel. I love the work. I wish I could just tell you every single miracle. Because there are so many. So many. I feel so blessed to be a part of this work. It was such a powerful, spiritually filled and inspiring week! (We even had a seventy come- Elder and Sister Carlson. Super awesome). Sister Alvarez and I are just pumped to keep working here. Like seriously, I can’t wait for the things we have planned today and the lessons we have set up. And the best part, I use to stress over when we had empty schedules or our lessons would fall through. I would be like, “Darn. What are we going to do now?” Not that we never found where we needed to be. But now, it’s like, “Okay, cool. Well, where does Heavenly Father want us to be?” And then we pray and every single time, GOD PROVIDES! It is so amazing! We are truly in His hands and it feels perfect 🙂

I love you and pray for you. I hope you have an AMAZING week! You are wonderful 🙂

Love,
Hermana Godfrey 🙂

I was just watching this mormon message. I like the message. Thought i’d share 🙂

September 22 – Scottish Day y Arepas

22 Sep

Happy Monday! This has been a pretty fun week. And I know I say miracles every week, but there are just so many! And this week, like, seriously it was just crazy. It was just like Bam! Miracles, miracles. Sooooo let me share with you my first week in LaSalle.

First, my companion is Sister Alvarez. She is from Colombia. (I love Colombia- like so much. It’s pretty ridiculous because I don’t know that much haha but just throughout my mission- Colombia.) She moved to Canada and moved back and forth from Colombia and Canada. But now her family is living in Calgary! So pretty cool. She is super funny and it’s a lot of fun to serve together. We have some visions/goals for this transfer and I’m excited to fulfill them!

Okay, I don’t even know where to start. Reunion de distrito. It was such a great way to start off the week (cause transfers are Wednesdays). The spirit was so strong as we shared insights and then did a role play teaching. Sister Alvarez and I were the ones teaching and it was cool because we were just bold but so loving and everyone felt the spirit. It really inspired us and set the tone of the week of miracles. After we went to Walmart (oh, got a car now- so weird. so great. so fast and effective. like it.) to get chalk to do the plan of salvation on the sidewalk for an activity (I thought of you Dad when you said you did it in Japan- at least I’m pretty sure). Anyways, we were there and Sister Alvarez recognized someone she knew the family from before the mission (she told me afterwards). It turned out to be a long lost less active member. She is so cool. It was weird because she knew a lot about Mormons (little did we know, well, I know haha). She was like, “Are you going to try to to make me Mormon? Cause it’s not going to work.” Haha. Well, we ended up visiting her yesterday. She has the cutest kids and she really doesn’t care for it right now. She is really open and super kind. We want to get to know her more and just kind of be there for her and her family. We are going to make them Arepas (Colombian food which I know how to make now) on Wednesday and have a picnic at the park with them.

Then, we were in the line at the check out and a father and son look over and are like, “Are you Mormons?” We were like, “Yeah! Yes we are!”. Haha they are great. Turned out to be Scottish Independence Day and they were going to play bagpipes (First time celebrating my scottish heritage like that! It felt super good!). So I asked him if he could play ‘Amazing Grace’ because that would be the coolest thing to hear on bagpipes. He could (the son). As well as Nearer My God to Thee and Lady Gaga. Haha it was really neat. So we asked if we could come join them at the park. Wow. What a cool experience, listening to bagpipes, violin and sharing our testimonies and beliefs about God and the Plan of Salvation. It was just beautiful. Everyone shared and I know that our message will fill their lives and make sense to them. I really hope we can continue to share that with them.

There are so many more amazing and wonderful experiences that happened and I would love to share them. It felt that miracle after miracle happened this week. I’d like to share my testimony. It’s been really amazing to see how my own testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ has grown throughout my mission. I don’t feel that I have grown in some crazy new and different radical aspect of the gospel. But rather, that I feel my testimony has grown deeper, expanded in the teachings of our Saviour and it continues to do so everyday. I know that Heavenly Father is our loving Heavenly Father, that He has a plan for us. I know that we lived as spirit children of our Heavenly Father before this life, that we grew in knowledge and personality and that we are sent here as a part of God’s plan- to learn, to grow, to receive a body and to prepare to meet God. And I know that death is not the final step, that we will one day be resurrected and have the opportunity to return to live with God, our Father, His son Jesus Christ and our families forever- in perfect peace, in perfect happiness and in perfect love. And I know that that is all possible gracias a Jesucristo. It’s beautiful, it’s perfect 🙂 I am grateful that every day I can continue to learn and learn from my mistakes and feel the love of God in my life. And I love and cherish having the opportunity to share that with others and allow them to see how it will change their lives as well.

I hope you all have an amazing week! I love you. Thanks for being amazing examples to me. Keep it up! And let me know of the miracles and tender mercies that happen to you and those lives you touch.

Love,
Hermana Godfrey 🙂

P.S. not enough time for photoos. But just know that I love you!

September 15 – el evangelio

15 Sep

Okay, let me tell you some really good stuff that happened this week. Like super good. First, Hermano E was baptized and confirmed this past weekend!!! It was super cool and such a great experience! He is just so ready for the gospel and it was so natural too (like he was just ready for it- really ready). He is doing great and I am sure he will continue to progress in the future just as well. The members really reach out to him and he is in good hands. It was for sure the hightlight 🙂

Also, we had a big miracle with one of our less active youth, M (the one who had his birthday the other week). He is kinda in a hard situtation right now with some things. He is a great young man but has just been missing in action at church for quite some time. But we really made the effort to go out and make contact with him several times a week. He came to mutual, the baptism and church this week! And even read a chapter of the Book of Mormon by himself! So incredible!

Guess what!? I got transfered. It was kinda a shock for me since I thought I’d stay here. But I guess Heavenly Father needs me elsewhere. I will be going to the LaSalle ward. It’s actually in my old stake, just further south. I love Zarahemla. The members and people we work with are so warm and just full of life and especially love. They have taught me a lot and I hope that I have been able to help them feel more of God’s love and brought them closer to our Saviour. There will be two other Sisters coming in and I know they will do an amazing job. It’s kinda sad to leave, but I am also excited to work with the people in LaSalle. It will also be neat because I will have the opportunity to work more with a lot of the other Sister missionaries. It will be great to learn and grow with them too. I can’t wait to keep serving as a representative of Jesus Christ 🙂

Love you all and have a great week!

Love,
Hermana Godfrey 🙂

sorry out of time to send pictures… next week. and they will be fantastic!
