I am from Reno, NV and have been called to serve in the South Carolina Columbia Mission! I report to the Provo MTC on January 7th, 2015. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve. I cannot wait to start this 18 month adventure. I have a testimony of this gospel and want those who read this blog to feel the same love that I have felt from my Father in Heaven.

Dear loved ones!
The end of May cannot be here! Its goes so fast!
This week I want to testify of the promptings of the Spirit. 3 occasions this week.
1) I don't know if I mention Vince in last weeks email. Well when he first called us back to tell us he was interested in learning more, I had an uneasy feeling. I thought it was doubt so I just pushed it aside and wanted to go forward with faith. Well little to say that he was not interested in the gospel but interested in us. So it was a prompting.
2) We went to go see a member that we hadn't yet met and frankly didn't know if she lived there any more. Well we knocked on the door and we heard voice but couldn't make out the words. We yelled "Its the missionaries!" Same thing, voice but couldn't understand it. I had a prompting to just walk in the house. (Whats the worst that can happen?) The lady that lived there had fallen on the floor. She had been stuck on the ground for about an hour and had been calling for help. We helped her up and chatted with her. She didn't break anything she just couldn't get up. We learned that she was Judy (not the lady that we were looking for) but just a miracle because the Spirit prompted us to just walk into the house. We did and that happened!
3) We went to see a less active named Thomas that we have been trying to get ahold of. We went to his house. No answer. We started driving and I saw a man that was walking and I got the prompting "Ask if he is Thomas" So I drove to turn around and ask and before I got to him, he went into the house we just knocked at. Would you believe that it was Thomas!
I just bear my testimony that the gift of the Holy Ghost is real. In the words of one of favorites.Elder Busche says: "The greatest achievement one can have in this life is to be under the complete influence of the Holy Ghost, then he can teach us what is really good and necessary to do." This is true! We must do the things that will make us worthy of the Spirit. This gospel is true and I say again and again,Christ is our Eternal Head.He guides this church.
