Dear family and friends,

My heart is just so full!!! There are so many miracles happening here in B.C. in all the areas I have served in. Christine and Laura are doing great in Sidney and both fighting to quit smoking. Please pray for them...I love them sooo much. Raul is going to receive the preisthood in the coming week. Oh my goodness. My heart is just sooo full! 

So we were able to teach Oscar again this week!:) He is doing great and he came to church again! We told him that the elders would be teaching him now because we go to a different ward and he was SO SAD. Seriously heart broken, but the elders were able to meet with him this week too and everything worked out well! So he is working hard for his baptism on June 25:) yay!

We had a miracle this week with our investigator, Patricia. She has been investigating for a long time but has always been held back by smoking. Sister Moore and I were talking about how we would help her and we thought it would be good to set a plan with her to help her quit. But when we got to her lesson she is the one who brought up baptism and smoking. She said that she is quitting today and she chose her baptismal date for July 9. WOW! We were blown away. The Lord works so many miracles and He is just blessing us so much here in Kelowna. 

I am learning so much from Sister Moore. She is seriously the sweetest person ever. She has the biggest desires to serve God and just forget herself and go to work. I'm grateful for that. I love working and I love being diligent and to have a companion that wants the same thing is such a blessing! She is so good!

So this week has been a trial of our feet!!! Not so much the faith..haha. The sisters before crashed our car and so it had a few dents so it has been in the shop being repaired. So that puts us on foot all the time, except for when we can get our members or the other sisters to give us rides. We are so sore...I don't think I've walked this much my whole mission! Haha, but anyways. We were walking home the other night from a hard day. I don't know why, but it seemed to just be a hard day for both Sister Moore and me. So I just said a prayer to Heavenly Father in my head that He would please bless us with a miracle because we had worked hard all day long. And immediately when I ended my prayer, a potential investigator came to my mind and then I realized she lived just a few houses down. The first time we met her, she wasn't super interested, but we thought we should stop by again and offer service. We knocked on her door and she answered and looked so confused why we were at her house again. But we told her that we just wanted to see how she was doing...her heart was completely softened. She talked to us for a long while and then told us she would love for us to come back and do service. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for a beautiful miracle!!!

I love the gospel so much. I learned this week that "the purpose of the gospel is to cleanse people of their sins so they can receive the Savior's mercy at the day of judgement." I love being a missionary and teaching the gospel and crying repentance.  I help people become clean from sin and find pure joy through Jesus Christ. I love God and I love Jesus Christ. They are so good and so perfect. Their love is real. I love Romans 8:32, 37-39. God loves us so much! Nothing can separate us from His love!
