"were totally carving watermelons for halloween" - week 30

(written oct. 26, 2015)

MOM!!! -----this is sister hannigans moms number her name is jennifer she lives in ____ if you could tell her all the shipping information you have about sending stuff that would be cool lol 
 it was SO GOOD every weeks a good week even the rough ones lol so they're getting married this saturday WERE SO EXCITED were going to help out with everything this friday so we are excited for that!! yeah!! thaanks so much lol just so you know they do have tooth brushes and toothpaste here but thanks so much!!!! :) american stuff is way better! oh yeah we got a box of spanish books of mormon they're doing good though were getting members who speak spanish to come with us and we try to be as involved as possible i can actually understand a little spanish now learning how to speak a little too!! we read in the spanish book of mormon at night to learn a little more just like words like prayer and stuff like that its been read good! mathiue is doing good he is afraid to come to church because he has never been to church in his entire life i guess? but whats cool is is dad sees us talking to him and he wanted to talk with us cuz he said that we have great faith and wants to know how we have so much faith in what we know. it was rad we talked for a little with him hopefully we'll get to talk with the entire family this coming week!! 

hahaha its just hot i think it changes a little all i know is i sweat everyday somedays i just don't sweat as much lol I LOVE THAT today were totally carving watermelons for halloween cuz they dont have pumpkins here lol were excited. hahaha would you be proud to know we started listening to christmas music 3 weeks ago? lol its good christmas music is the best cuz it all talks about christ!!

ok real quick cool story we were riding down this hill and we saw this family pouring concrete so naturally we stopped and offered to help!! what i havent really realized before is how odd it probably sounds for two girls in skirts offering to help mix concrete cuz they laughed and were like are you serious so we got off our bikes and took the shovels and started helping it was so fun and just cool to help them we talked about christ and how important he is for us and how he is our friend and saviour and then gave them a book of mormon and are going to see them this week but guess what this family is from cuba!! and they all speak spanish lol we are so excited to go see them again i just i havent ever really thought about how cool this is and how i dont know if i will ever have another opportunity to talk about christ and help pour concrete again you know?? i donno i absolutly love this work!!

funny story we were biking on this road and this guy stopped us and said to come talk to him he starts speaking english without saying anything else he goes i am a man of mystery a man of poetry a man of some other things and was like i am looking for someone who understands me and soeur hannigan and i cut him off and said christ understands you and knows exactly how you feel which is so true he didn't really want to talk about the gospel but it gave soeur hannigan and i a good laugh! 

anyway i love you and thanks so much again for the package!! 
love you :)

"we were supposed to be there" - week 29

(written oct. 19, 2015)

this week was so good!! We found these two spanish sisters last week that are so cute one speaks spanish and french and the other speaks only spanish!! i absolutely love every single lesson we have with them because we have to use so many scriptures so that way they both really understand what we are saying! one of the sisters bettse her son and his little girl are coming in town this week from martinique and she wants us to teach them too!! we are so excited about them. the sister who speaks straight up only spanish is reading so much in the book of mormon!! she loves it maybe its cuz she's curious to know what we talk about but she's progressing so well!! and then bettse read not as much but she reads we just shared with theml' the plan of salvation and they were both like yeah we want that in our lives so were going to see them and they're entire family this week w<ere so excited!! 

also weve been teaching this guy named mathieu he's been doing really well so the other night we were in the raizet and hannigan's tire popped which was fine we were only like a 40 min walk home we weren't to far! and so we just decided to cancel the rest of the appointments for the night cuz it was 7:30 and check up on people in the raizet and we were walking around talking to everyone met 6 really cool people and then we ran into mathieu!! we had a lesson with him just by the bus stop and talked to him about the gospel and we invited him to be baptized seriously everything always happens for a reason if her bike tire didn't pop we wouldn't have seen mathieu and wouldn't have met those other people it was where we were supposed to be the moment we were supposed to be there it was amazing. i love this work!!! i hope everyone has a good week :)

GAAAH were so excited for them :) man im gonna be honest there were a few ladies we were teaching that have leg issues i cant remember which one i told you about sorry!! remember when i told you about Xavier he's a less active from my first transfer well he went to conference last week and he went to all 4 sessions he told us saturday he could only stay for one guess something changed during that session lol but then this week he called us sunday asking if he could come to church we were like yeah you can!! so excited lol and we had a lesson with him the other day and it was amazing we talked about prayer and how its through prayer at we communicate with our heavenly father he said something that touched me that he felt like he was being forgiven and it felt good while he was praying and we were both like yeah thats the power of prayer and talked about how reading is how we can find answers to it and coming to church and oh my it was so good i wont forget about the lesson we had with him i cant even express how much i loved being there in that moment.

"it's going by way to fast" - week 27

(written october 5, 2015)

oh my goodness its going by way to fast.. i dont like it at all. but its been good!! i absolutely love it. conference was so good there was something different watching it being here i donno what it was. but it was really good i loved uchtdorfs talk! he always gives good talks lol and after conference we had two lessons and they were so good it was something about watching conference at the church house then having a lesson right after the spirit was already there and while we were talking with our investigators it just grew oh my goodness it was amazing. 

alright i read this talk the other day its called the challenging and testifying missionary written in like 1961 but its SO GOOD after we read it we decided we weren't inviting enough people to be baptized we were challenging enough people so we set out that day decided to invite every single person we talked to to read ponder and pray about the book of mormon and to be baptized if they knew it was true. this was like in lessons we had planned and just people we talked to on the side of the street. we decided we would testify and tell how we know its true and how it has blessed us and how it can bless them then we invited them and some people said no but some said yes and those that said yes are reading and praying!! its so cool to see how much that changed the work and how< that changed the people we are teaching!! and how quick the spirit comes when we testify of doctrine and read scriptures. it was amazing and that couple we found who is married is good!! we taught the wife this past week she accepted a baptismal date and wants us to teach her husband and her family and kids and said she would begin reading in the book of mormon this was the same day we went out with the mind set to challenge and testify to everyone!! it was a miracle and i loved it!! i am glad you got my letter :) i got you letter this week too!! and aunt Andrea's thanks for the both of them!!! :) oh my gosh soeur hannigan is killing it!! she's amazing seriously she is one of those people who has been a missionary her entire life because helping teaching and testifying come naturally for her and she doesn't even realize it i absolutely love working with her and i have learned so much from her its crazy!! she's yeah she's amazing lol i cant wait for you to met her!! i hope you have a good week this week!!
