Hey everyone!!

What a busy week!! we had a lot happen this week! We set great goals as a district on what we want to accomplish in this transfer and it really pushed us to work very hard! As a district we found 18 new investigators! How exciting is that!! Also, we had interviews with president, had exchanges with the YSA sisters, planning and preparing a baptism for may 30th, and lots and lots more! ah! crazy!!

I always love having interviews with President. He is the best. It was bitter sweet though because that was my last interview with him since he leaves at the end of this transfer. Sad! But it was great. At the end I asked him if he has seen me change over the past 15 months and he just chuckled and told me that I had no idea. He said that when I came in I was very mature and ready but he said he has seen my testimony deepen and said I have done so much for the mission and a leader and in my areas. It felt good to hear that. All I have wanted my whole mission is to change. I want to change and be someone better and closer to the person God wants me to be and knows I can become. It has involved a lot of stretching and growth which isn't always pleasant but to hear that I have changed pleased my soul to no end. And I still have time! I get to keep growing! I am so thankful.

Exchanges was fun! I went with sister Porter. She is very sweet and gentle. We had a good exchange together. Then that night, all of us sisters in the city went to dinner at the Haffen's! They are a senior couple in the mission. They work in the office. They are my favorites haha i love them so much! So that was a blast. 

Sam and Ann are still going strong for their baptism on the 30th! I am so excited!! They are so special and so prepared!! We still have a lot to teach them and set up though so it's a little stressful but lucky for us our ward mission leader Brother D is literally the best human ever and takes care a lot of it for us. I don't know what we would do without him!! Sam is Ann's daughter and she is 27 and has a speech impediment and is so precious. She melts my heart every time I see her. She is so smart and already in 2nd Nephi in her reading! Ann is just ready haha she is so faithful and excited to be a part of a family that worships God and is on the right path. I'm blessed to have met them and seen them come closer to Christ.

This next week looks pretty busy too! Off to Brandon for exchanges and lots to prepare!! I love you all so so much! Have a wonderful week and share the Gospel!

after sister Hiatt's and my interview with President he gave us this!!! He wrote this book. It's for our future children. He normally gives this book to the missionaries who finish their missions but he won't be here when we finish and since we have worked so much with him as sister training leaders he gave us copies!! SO CUTE!!! i love him!!!!

Happy Mothers day to all the moms out there!!

I was so happy to see my family yesterday! The kids have gotten SO big and my dad's laugh just lifts my spirit up so much haha I think I have the best family in the world. I first just really want to thank my family and friends for all they do for me. I have so much support and love. It fills me with so much joy! And Mom, I hope you had the best Mothers Day ever! I love you with all my heart. I am truly just so blessed.

This week was great! Sister Hiatt and I have three investigators who should be baptized this month!! Natalie, a little girl who I love to pieces. And then there is Samantha and Ann. We have only taught them twice! TWICE!!! Ann is sam's mom. They are friends with members in the Dalhousie ward and they are so prepared for the gospel! We invited them to be baptized on may 30th and they had plans but said they would send back the tickets and cancel the other plans. Feeling their trust in our prayerful choice of the date was a great feeling. They love and trust the lord so much and just love the church. It makes me SO HAPPY!!!! Please keep them all in your prayers and pray that everything will workout!! There are always bad or hard things that come up before baptisms. Satan is rude like that. But I know they can do it. 

So neat experience this week, we were walking to an appointment with the zone leaders for a meeting on training we were going to do with our zone and we stopped and talked to this lady walking past us. We told her who we were and shared a little about the book of Mormon and even said a prayer together on the street. She told us she was so happy and thanked us for talking to her. We went to her home later in the week and taught her. She isn't ready to except the gospel or change but she just loved our happy attitudes and how we were so open to talking. It felt good. Even if she isn't ready now, she can be one day. We planted a seed. I guess it was neat because sister Hiatt and I have seen all stages of missionary work this week. Planting seeds, watering seeds, and harvesting. We shared, taught, and invited. It make m y heart feel happy knowing we get to see every part of missionary work. 

I love you all so much! I hope you have a great week!!

Well another transfer has come and gone!! But luckily nothing is changing for sister Hiatt and I! Which I am very happy about haha. But we had some sister stay with us to leave to the west side of the mission the next day. It was a full house!! Lots of fun though. Perks of being a sister Training leader haha lots of sleepovers!!!! Transfer meeting was fun! Sister brimhall is getting a new comp so I got to see her and sister Smith!!! We had a giant tri-pan hug for at least 20 minutes hahaha everyone just laughed at us. It was the best.

That night we got to actually go to the farewell for the departing missionaries. They say their testimony and mingle with a bunch of members from all over the city who want to say goodbye. We were there a little early and were just talking to some members, waiting for sister smith and Duplesis (another departing missionary who slept over then we drove her to the airport to go to Germany, she is sister Hiatt's best friend) then I hear Sister Smith's voice and eagerly turn to see her down the hall and she was bawling and hugging these two humans. I had no idea who they were until I recognized their faces... HER PARENTS!!!! AH!! I go over to see her and sure enough she introduced me to them!!! CRAZY!!!!!! They were supposed to fly in the next day then get her and visit her areas before they go back to Utah but they surprised her and where at the farewell!!! I MET THEM!!! It was the best but craziest thing ever. So many emotions everywhere haha. They are such great people though!!! I love them.

I'm still in shock that sister Smith is done. Seems not real. Now it's just me and Brimmers!!!! Crazy!

Sister Hiatt and I are teaching a French lady! I was happy to be using my French again!! And sister Hiatt is learning French! we are reading the book of Mormon together and I'm teaching her words so that she can help teach and learn a language! It's been so fun! She can say the whole alphabet ! I'm proud hahaha.

Other t hen that the week was just filled with mission Leadership council meetings and other business we had to do. Looking forward to this next transfer and loving where the work is at right now!!!

so sister Hiatt and I were walking through the church one day and saw this on a random blackboard in the hallway hahahah. really Tanice? hahaha #sheiswithus

We helped out in seminary this week, they are learning in the Doctrine and Covenants. The section they were on was when Joseph and Hyrum got killed. So their teacher decided to host a funeral. Sister Hiatt was Lucy Smith (Their mom) and we all had a role in the funeral. the spirit was very strong. I am so thankful for Joseph Smith. He truly is a Prophet of God
