God is Light!

Hello family. 

Another week gone by. They pass so quickly. It was a great week though. Lots of miracles. We had a really amazing Zone Conference. President Choi is just the best ever. Sister Dobbins and I had to perform a musical number. We put it together that morning. It was a little scary, but it turned our alright, so all is well. We went on an Exchange this week. I was with Hermana Boley. She is so great. I love getting to serve with her. We saw so many miracles! As we were going about our day I felt like we needed to visit Jina (one of our gators who we'd been having a hard time getting a hold of). Heavenly Father is just so cool! He times things just perfectly. We couldn't find a parking spot in her complex so we had to go to the neighboring one and park. Then along the way we met a Born Again lady who told us about how we need to find the real Jesus. And then walking into her complex we passed her in the parking lot. It was such a miracle! Because she lives in a locked apartment complex so it's really hard to try and go visit her. Anyway, we ended up being able to have a really awesome lesson with her where she really opened up. She has the most beautiful little 18 month old daughter and she really wants the gospel in her life. We had a church tour with her this weekend and she is on date for baptism! The Spirit was so strong. She was in tears in the chapel and just talked about how this is what she's been looking for. She's the one I mentioned about a month ago or so. Anyway, please pray for her. I just love her so much! I can't wait to continue working with her. 

Also, please pray for Blanca. We had a great lesson this week and she is really searching for truth. She just feels like she hasn't gotten an answer about Joseph Smith. She is such a sweet person and is really trying to do what's right. She was able to come to the Member and Missionary fireside the mission does once a month and she really felt the Spirit. It's a meeting where recent converts get to share their testimonies and their conversion experiences and then there's music. They are amazing! There were some things that were said just for her. She is taking this week to really study the Book of Mormon and wants to meet with us next Monday. Please, please pray for her to be able to receive an answer and recognize that answer that The Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyday my testimony grows about the truthfulness of those statements. This gospel is the best thing ever. I read a really great talk from President Uchtdort from the Spring 2013 General Conference about light. You should all look it up. I love scriptures and quotes that talk about light. In closing I want to share a scripture with you. 1 John 1:5 "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." 
I know that is true. Turn to God everyday and allow Him to chase out the darkness and despair. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They love us. They want us to return to them. Choose the right. Read your scriptures and pray everyday. I love you!
