Hey y'all, Merry Christmas!!!!! I hope all y'all had a great holiday celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. I had a great week full of Christmas blessings! We had a Zone Conference this week and that was really fun because we got together with half the mission and receive some training, but then also play Jeopardy and test the knowledge that we have of the Scriptures, The White Handbook (rule book), Preach My Gospel (missionary manual and guide to teaching), and Adjusting to Missionary Life book. It was fun!
Well it's gotten a lot colder here than I ever thought it would. I actually use my coat and use the heater in the car! That really surprises me, especially since I lived through the really really super hot thought-I-was-going-to-die summer!

I went out with my STL Sister Nelson this week because everyone in my apartment was sick and I needed to get out, so that was super nice. Lots of people weren't home or didn't want to talk to us because of
the holiday, but it ended up being ok. Those who did let us in were very welcoming and were glad to see us!

But highlight of the week was of course when I got to talk to my family!! I face timed them yesterday and it was really great.

This is what we looked like for Sis. Brown!

Plan of Salvation Week

Merry Christmas everyone!!

This week has been so good! We had a lesson with Ella about The Plan of Salvation and she loved it! She then asked us if we could meet more an once a week! Uh, yes!!! So we went back later that week and taught her the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She is so wonderful! She... just doesn't go to church... Did I tell you about Ella? Sister Lemmon tracted into her before I came and the. She went missing, but she's back now and we've been teaching her and she wants to be baptized!!

The Percells accepted a baptism date!!! They will be out of town for the next couple of weeks, so they are getting baptized on January 28th. We taught them the Plan of salvation and it was so wonderful!!! They had a child pass away when she was a baby, and the spirit was so strong when we let them know that their family could be together forever. Domanika, the mother, said a kneeling prayer after the lesson and it was so powerful. I am so excited for them!!!

I gave a talk about the Plan of a Salvation in the Samoan Ward. It was great, because I finally got to get up there and say "Brothers and Sisters, Tolofa!" And I got a nice big reply back :) something that I loved about talking about it at church was to look back at experiences in my life with the Plan and share them. There was a time in the MTC where our teacher asked us what the Plan of salvation was, so we drew the diagram and everything that we learned in primary. But our MTC teacher kindly told us we were mistaken and that the diagram that we drew was NOT the plan of salvation. They explained to us something that I will never forget. The Plan of salvation isn't a travel plan. The plan of salvation is the atonement. Because of the atonement, we are saved. That was the plan. That we came to earth to learn, and have a way of returning as better people, because of Christ. I am so grateful for the atonement that makes me a better person!!

This week in my studies I read 1 Nephi 17:2. It's just a simple scripture talking about their travels in the wilderness, but I found something deeper. When you are focused on the blessing in life rather than the trials, you'll see miracles instead of just complaining.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

Happiness is...Being Charitable

Hello All!

Transfers were today instead of next week, so that's fun. I think it's because of Christmas and stuff. Well, Sister Lemon and I are staying together! So that's super great :) but remember those sisters who moved in last week? Well one of them got transferred out (into my old area. Lucky duck) and sister LeDoux is here now! So now we live together, but I'm still companions with sister Lemmon. So that's fun. 

On Monday night, we were able to meet with the Percell family, the family we are teaching in the Samoan Ward. We shared the Christmas video with them and they all loved it! They came to the Ward Christmas party on Friday and Church on Sunday!! We've also heard from the Ward that the kids (10,8,&7) have been participating in weekly activities with the Ward! We are meeting with them again this week and are going to commit them to baptism. We are super excited for them!

On Tuesday we were able to get in touch with a potential investigator because she was in her garage at the time we came, and it has truly strengthened my testimony on the importance of planning and sticking to your plan. I know that God helped us come in contact with her :)

We've also finally met with Ella, a golden investigator that went MIA for about 6 weeks. We gave her the Book of Mormon lesson and she said that she wants to get baptized!! She doesn't want to set a date until she comes to church, but sadly she wasn't at church yesterday:/ But we know that she wants to and we are meeting with her again this week, so hopefully we'll find out how we can help her keep her commitments. 

Friday night we had the Christmas party for the Samoan Ward!! Man, do they know how to party! And eat! We some gooooood food, and soooooo much of it! I could hardly eat all of it. Well, I couldn't. But it was so great! It was so much fun, and it was just that much better because our investigators were there :) 

Okay, one more short cool experience :) we've been going through our area Book and trying to visit the less actives, or just people we don't know. We stopped by this one house, but realized that they were not the members who we were looking for. But they were happy to hear the Christmas message we said we had to share and we set an appointment to go back this week :) 

In my studies this week I have been studying Charity. I have memorized Moroni 7:45-47 and recite it in my head every time I feel angry or judgmental. Man it sure makes me be angry less often, because I don't want to have to recite it haha just kidding, but it still is really nice. It reminds me of who I am and who I am trying to be like and how I can do that. 

This week, spend one day being consciously aware of your attitude, and try not to be negative or gossipy or irritated. And if you get that way, think of 3 positive things of the thing you just got irritated or mad at. It will change your perspective on everything! And make life a lot more happy :) do that, and write me your experiencesM I would love to hear :)

Have a great week being happy!!

Winter in Vegas

Hey y'all!

It's getting colder here in Vegas and I never thought I would need a jacket in Vegas, but I can't believe it's actually getting cold here. You never know!
Well this week in Vegas has been sort of chaotic. Sister Lemmon hasn't been feeling so well, and we finally think we've figured it out to be a kidney infection. But because if that, we haven't been able to goout that much. But I was able to go out with some other sisters at some points during the week, so I didn't have to stay in the whole week. That was nice. We've been shark the #LIGHTtheWORLD video withpractically everyone we see and it's so great! I think it's genius, because what better way is there to come closer to Christ this Christmas season than by doing the things at Jesus did! It's been sogood :)
Oh and we got roommates! So that's fun. Instead of being in an apartment with just me and sister Lemmon, two new sisters, sisters Fulton and Fitsimmons live with us, so that's exciting. Makes the place a little more alive :)
And I love the Book of Mormon!! I don't know if I've said this before, but I've been studying in 1 Nephi still and going through the prophesies he sees of the future generations. It proves to me that the Book of Mormon was never meant to be separate from the Bible, and it's just the plain and precious truths from the Bible that were lost! Man reading the Book of Mormon, it's just so true!! This gospel is so true and I love that I can be apart of it. I love that I am able to live it and be apart of it and share it. It's true sly the best thing ever!!

Aren't we so lucky hat he have this wonderful Christmas season to celebrate our Savior and Redeemer?! I loved watching the Christmas devotional last night and having the reminder that there wouldn't be a Christmas without an Easter. Because of what Jesus Christ did, because of how he lived, we have a reason to celebrate his birth. Isn't that so wonderful and so amazing?! So this Christmas season, try focusing on the reasons why you are grateful for Christmas. For the temporal things and the spiritual things. Right now, I am so grateful that myfamily gave me something to miss, especially at this Christmas time. I look around and see other's traditions, and am very grateful for what I was able to have and to grow up with. I am so grateful for this wonderful church and for the ability that I have to be out here sharing it. I am grateful for my savior and his atonement and how because of him, I have the chance to be forgiven of my mistakes and weaknesses and start over. What a wonderful opportunity that is :) I love you all! I hope y'all have a wonderful time this Christmas season, spending time with family and jamming out to that Christmas music :) don't miss me too much!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all had a great thanksgiving! I'm so excited for the holidays though! Make sure you check out the video #LIGHTtheWORLD and do the 25 ways of service in 25 days! It's going to be super awesome and I love the video that goes with it. There's also a video for each day in December up to the 25th, so watch for those too! Share the video with your friends, cause it's super great :)

Man. My week! Not really much to account for. Sister Lemmon has been feeling sick lately so we've stayed inside a lot. But he times we were out, we saw miracles! Thanksgiving day was awesome. So Thursday is planning day, so we usually spend most of the day inside planning the next week. So we still did that, but then went to dinner. Well, dinner #1 :)

#1 The K's: the K's are an older couple in the Eldorado Highlands Ward, the family Ward, but Sister K is Samoan and her family came over for thanksgiving as well. So it was an awesome 
Samoan feast! I was STUFFED by the end because I just kept eating the delicious food. So this dinner was at 2:30, so we still had a whole day ahead of us. And our mission president instructed us to proselyte the whole day, so we needed to find something to do, but we really didn't want to go tracting. So, we said a prayer to know where we needed to be. We ended up going to another member's house. 

#2 The T's: this is a family, also in the Eldorado Highlands Ward, but Brother T is the Samoan and Sister T. is not. So not really any Samoan food except for dessert, but they still made us eat, even though we just went in to share a message and clean their dishes for them :) well when we got in, they were just about to start, so that's how we crashed their thanksgiving :) But it was super great, and at the end the whole family gathered around and we shared a video and message about gratitude and then they sang a family Christmas song to us :)

After we left and felt so good and loved from the T's, we went back to not knowing what to do. I expressed frustratingly "I don't know what to do!!!" And then the phone rang :) it was a Samoan family, this time from the Tropical Breeze Samoan Ward, and they wanted us to eat their leftovers 

#3 The A's: So I felt guilty just going to another member's house, but we took this phone call as an answer to our prayers, and drove over there. I could barely eat any more food, but it was still so good. At the end, we shared a scripture about gratitude and gave a little lesson. Well after we left, the Son, return missionary, walked us out to our car and talked to us about our spiritual thought. Little did we know, we had just taught a lesson to a potential investigator with a member present! His Sister's Fiancé was there who is not a member, and is thinking about taking missionary lessons soon. Since we can only work off of referrals in he Samoan Ward, we took this as great news and we can't wait to start teaching him! 

So even though we were in members houses all day and just ate so much food that I seriously couldn't swallow any more, I know that we were where God wanted us to be, and God led us to places where he knew we would help and share a good spirit, even though we weren't knocking on doors :)

D&C 78:19
"And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more."
"Gratitude is an uplifting, exalting attitude. You can probably say from experience that you are happier when you have gratitude in your heart. You cannot be bitter, resentful, or mean-spirited when you are grateful." (True to the Faith: "Gratitude") 
Alma 34:38
"That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you."
So I hope y'all had a great thanksgiving! But remember that it's. It just one day we need to be grateful. If we live in thanksgiving daily, you will see your attitude be brighter towards everything and everyone, and that you will be given many more hints to be grateful for :) 
I am thankful for every one of you! I appreciate the time you give to read my emails and check up on me, I am so very grateful for your prayers in my behalf, and I am grateful that I have you in my life to do things like tell you about my life as a missionary here in Las Vegas :)

I love you all!

Elder Cornish and The Wise Man

Hello all!!

This week was so great! So Elder Cornish of the 70 gave an amazing talk in General Conference a couple weeks ago and he used to be (or still is, I don't really know) the 70 over where I lived in Georgia!
He like spoke at my trek and in my stake and Ward and everything and he's pretty much the best ever. And he came to the mission! He spoke to us missionaries on Thursday and it was wonderful. At lunch, the sisters of my zone sat and talked with him on a personal level and asked him questions and we learned a lot just from that little thing! He is really amazing and a man called of God and I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to receive personal counsel from him :)

So there's not really much to say about this week, so I'll tell a story that Elder Cornish told and it has changed my perspective of my trials:
So once upon a time there was this Widow and her son who lived in a cottage on a hill with one cow. When it was a year of good rain, the cow ate well and gave good milk and they had a successful year selling the milk. When it didn't rain too good, the cow didn't eat very well because nothing grew, therefore it didn't give good milk and they had a horrible year because they didn't make any money with the milk. So they were really struggling, because their profits were dependent on the rainfall of the year. One day, a wise man came into town and the son went to town to get advise from him. The wise man felt like he could help them, so he followed the son back to the cottage on the hill. Looking at the cottage, he said "I see your problem" and then he went to the cow and grabbed him by the horns and led him away. The son followed and watched to see what he would do. He took the cow all the way to the end of the land to the edge of a cliff. He then led the cow to the very edge, and then pushed him off. The son looked down at the very dead cow way down there, speechless. (The son, not the cow. Well, the cow too, because he was dead 😊) The wise man looked at the
wide-mouthed son and then said, "You're welcome. I'll come back in 10 years to see how you're doing."
So sure enough, the Wise man came back 10 years later and the town had flourished dramatically. There was a beautiful courtyard with a huge, beautiful house in the middle of town.  He went to the nearest villager and asked who lived in the big house in the center of town. The villager said that it was a Widow and her son that used to live in a cottage on the hill. The wise man simply said, "I thought so" and left.
At this point, Elder Cornish asked all us missionaries what happened? He killed their only source of income! How did it help? Elder Cornish then closed his story with explaining that sometimes you can be stuck
with what you are doing at the moment. Kill the cow and look for new possibilities and prosper to a new potential.
So that story has changed my perspective entirely! So when you are stuck in a trial and don't know what to do, check to see if you are stuck doing something that is to prohibiting you from progressing.

So, basically Elder Cornish is amazing and changed my life once again :) this week we met with The Cohen's again and taught the restoration lesson to Maceo! Sister LeDoux was feeling sick that night, so I went on splits with sister Savea and we had dinner with them and taught the lesson. It was pretty great! Maceo aid he was going to pray about it because it was a lot to take in, but hopefully he will recognize the spirit and know that God called Joseph Smith to be a prophetic these latter days.

Well that's about it for this week! I love you all and I hope you liked the story from Elder Cornish. Because I loved it. Thanks for writing me and reading my long emails. I'm trying to make them shorter
and less painful to read :)

Sacrifices, even forced ones, bring forth blessings

Hello everyone! So this week has been a roller coaster of good and bad.  But I have come to realize that everything is from God, even the not-so-happy things.

Well it started off with exchanges, and Hermana McAffe came to my area for the day. We talked about dropping some of the investigators we had who aren't really committed I order to make time to find the ones who really were. It was sad thinking about it, but I knew I had to drop some people that I loved seeing because they just weren't progressing.

One investigator, Vanessa, was one that was progressing and we weren't going to drop because she had a baptismal date! Hermana McAffe and I visited her and talked to her about some questions she had and things
that she learned by looking us up on the Internet. We suggested that she just use for her research and set up a Book of Mormon reading appointment with her for the next day.

Well the next day, Thursday, is planning day, where we spend most morning hours after studies to plan for the next week. In the middle of planning, Vanessa texted us saying that she wanted to stay with her beliefs and basically said goodbye. We were shocked! Sister LeDoux and I didn't know what to do, so right then and there we prayed for guidance and then we both immediately felt like we needed to pack up everything and drive to her house. So that's what we did, but she ended up "not being home." We were both devastated. We didn't know what to do, so we just picked a street and tracted because we wanted to show Satan that this wouldn't get us down, even though it really had.

A couple appointments we had planned after that also fell through, and then Vanessa texted us to let us know she didn't want to see us any more. So right now the roller coaster is all downhill. But it starts picking back up when we had a lesson with the Cohen's! So Tamir and Cade are the ones with baptism dates on the 22nd and their mom is Claudia, a returning less-active member. So those three were there, along with Maceo, Claudia's boyfriend, and Brooklyn (15) and Nathan (12), Maceo's kids. They all listened as we taught about the
importance of the Book of Mormon and they all committed to go to church on Sunday! They are all amazing and so fun! We had a great time and they asked so many good questions. That night Maceo, Brooklyn, and
Nathan all became new investigators!

So even though it was sad to see Vanessa go on unhappy terms, the day ended good with the Cohen's. And we weren't planning on dropping Vanessa, so it was God just letting us know that she wasn't ready and
we shouldn't waste are time with her either, even though I love her and miss her tons already. But if she wasn't ready, she wasn't ready, and there was nothing sister LeDoux and I could've done. But the same day we dropped Vanessa, we got 3 more new ones, so I guess it's God telling us that it was worth it and that He's got it covered.

The next day we tracted and we found Daisy, a mom who was watching her kids play outside. We talked to her about what we do as missionaries. She asked us a lot of good questions, which eventually led to a mini
restoration lesson! She said she'd pray about Joseph Smith and said we could come back, so we are so excited to see her again! We set up a return appointment and got another new investigator :)

On Saturday, the Peccole Ranch community was having a community wide garage sale and Sister LeDoux and I went around from garage to garage passing out donation flyers for Deseret Industries. It was good because so many people were outside who normally aren't and they were able to see us and know that we are in the area. No return appointments came from it, but a lot of missionary talk and invitations to church :)

Sunday, all the Cohen's came to church!! It was a little hectic because the. Butch was PACKED because there was a senior missionary farewell, a baby blessing, and three baptisms occurred the day before, but we managed to shift around and move chairs in the middle of the meeting and all of us were able to sit in the same row in the back eventually. It was fantastic! Tamir and Cade got permission to come to church, even though they are supposed to be with their dad for the weekend, and Maceo and his kids came! They all said they enjoyed it and Brooklyn even said that she wants to come next week!!! EEEP!! We are so excited for them! We are going to have dinner and a lesson with them this week, so look for an update on them next week!

In my studies this week I have been diving into 1 Nephi in depth and I love it! I'm learning so much that otherwise I wouldn't have thought of. I'm learning to appreciate God's work more and how he works so
much through other people, especially His prophets. The Book of Mormon at first just seems like a bunch of stories, but when you dive into it, you see all the way deeper meanings and how there is spiritual
meaning to every verse! I encourage you all to read the Book of Mormon and don't keep track of how many verses or chapters you read. Just read for 20 minutes and write down the impressions and thought you
have about each verse, even if it's as simple as "and my father dwelt in a tent." You might get through 4, maybe one day 15. But you get way more out of it and you see more clearly how they relate to you and
your life now.

I love you all and I thank you for all your prayers and support! I hope everyone's okay with the hurricane. I don't know anything about it, I just know it exists, so just be safe, k? :) Love you!!

So we had an exciting week! I'm getting to know Sister LeDoux better every day and she is absolutely a fantastic missionary! She is so ready to work and love the people of Las Vegas and I feel humbled to know that God has trusted me to help her become the missionary that He wants her to be. But honestly, I'm just struggling trying to be a missionary like her right now! She's really amazing and is training me how to be a better missionary. I feel so privileged to be able to work with her and to get to know her more!

This week was really great on Monday after picking up Sister LeDoux, Sister Campos was allowed to join us for her last lesson of her mission and we went to the Cohen's, Tamir and Kade's house, and watched Meet the Mormons! Claudia, Tamir and Kade's mom. had her boyfriend. Maceo, over and we really brought it to watch it with him :) but I had never seen if before, so it was really neat! If you haven't seen Meet the Mormons, go watch it. It's really cool and shows inspiring stories of regular people who have been successful in their lives, and just happen to be Mormon as well :) It was a wonderful lesson and I think they all enjoyed it! then I had to say good bye to Sister Campos and that was really hard for me. She was an amazing missionary and I have been so sincerely blessed and loved to have her in my life and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to serve with her. Saying goodbye was hard, but hopefully she'll follow my advice and transfer to Idaho because it is the best school, and that way we can see each other again! ;)

The rest of the week we had some orientation and training meetings to attend so those were fun, and it made me grateful to be a trainer so I can learn everything over again :) 

Ok well funny story! So on Friday we went and did some moving and cleaning service for the relief society president, but then we had to leave because we had a training meeting to go to. But we just brought clothes to change into and stuff so we drove to the church and then when we pulled into the parking lot, all of the other missionaries who were going to the training were all just standing out there! So we really didn't want to awkwardly be the only ones not in missionary clothes and walk up to the church, so we put our Grand Caravan to use! we drove to the other side of the building, hopped out of the front seat, and just changed in our very spacious van. It worked great! haha so you might not have thought that was funny, but we had a good laugh about it and were proud of ourselves for finding a solution to not walking up to missionaries awkwardly in jeans and a t shirt haha :)

Also, that night was the Peccole Ranch Ward Talent show and Youth camp fundraiser! It was really awesome to go to a ward activity and see the weird talents of ward members that you didn't know had talents and now we look at them in a new light haha :) but it was really great! and someone invited their non member friend, so it was nice to talk with her and see how she was enjoying it. 

Conference this weekend was so wonderful!!! I realized that I really need to work on having a positive attitude through my trials and not to be disappointed in myself when I don't do everything right the first, second, or even third time. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said something that really touched my heart, and it was something along the lines of : "Yes, there will be sorrow, regrets, and anger that will cause us to miss opportunities, but in the end we will be astonished by the love that God has for us." He loves you no matter what. He understands that you will make mistakes, and actually he expects us to. Also, throughout the entire conference, I think the most quoted scripture was Alma 7:11-13. This scripture is one of my absolute favorites because it explains sand illustrates how much God loves us that he gave his only son, Jesus Christ, and what the atonement was and what it does for us now. Linda S. Reeves of the Relief Society explained that the greatest miracle wasn't the parting of the red sea or the raising of the dead, but the greatest miracle is the fact that Jesus Christ made it possible to be cleansed of all our sins and to be able to return to God again. THAT was and still is today the greatest miracle. I am so happy that Jesus atoned for my sins and gave me the chance to repent, because he KNOWS I am not perfect and that I will make mistakes that will prevent me from returning to my Heavenly Father. I love conference and I love hearing what our leaders today have been inspired by God to speak to us about, and I am so privileged to have the opportunity to hear it here in Las Vegas and in homes on Investigators and members! If you didn't get a chance to see it, please go to and watch What our inspired leaders have to say about our day. Their words are truly scripture :)

I hope you all had a great week and I hope you have an even better one this week! 

I love you all!

Well I hardly have any time at all today, because its transfer day! Sadly, I have to say good bye to Sister Campos tonight and I don't think I'm quite ready to do that. She has been such a tender mercy in
my life and I don't want her to leave me! But she has served a wonderful 18 month mission in Vegas and was a wonderful servant of the Lord in all she did, so I know she will continue to be amazing back home in the Philippines. But man I will miss her so much.

The Lord has entrusted me with something that humbles me very much. I have been called be a trainer. Today we picked up a sister that flew from the MTC just early this morning. Her name is Sister LeDoux. (Ley-doo) her
name is French, but she grew up on Utah and lived a couple years in Virginia before she came out. She's 21 and I already can tell that she's an amazing missionary! She's beautiful and outgoing and so ready to be a missionary. I am sure she will teach me so much and I can't wait to see what! I am so humbled at this assignment and I know I will have to completely rely on the Lord to help Sister LeDoux become the missionary that the Lord wants her to be. But I am so thrilled that I get to stay in my area!! My greenie area is wonderful and there are so many wonderful people and I can't wait to see what the Lord wants Sister LeDoux and I to complete in this amazing area!

This week was great. On Tuesday we had the restoration lesson with Vanessa and she accepted the baptism date for October 29th!! She believes in Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and can not wait to get baptized, so we can not wait to continue to teach her! This is the same women as the one we helped get school supplies to and also help tutor her first grader. She finally asked us what we could do for her after we helped her so much, so we asked if we could teach her and now she's getting baptized! We're super excited.

On Friday I was privileged to attend the temple with Sister Campos for her departing temple trip! Because she's the only sister going home, I was lucky and got to go with her so she wouldn't be alone. It was such a wonderful experience and I am SO happy President asked me to join them!

Ok I have to give a shout out, because I love this girl so much, and I don't have time to write a personal email. THANK YOU SO MUCH LEXEY!!!!! She sent me a birthday package full of WONDERFUL goodies and love and I cried because I miss you so much. Lexey you're amazing. I'll write you next week :)

On Saturday Tamir and Kade came to a baptism!! They missed the actual ordinance, but they stayed for the talks and the convert's testimonies and then we showed them the font afterwords and they met President
Walker and he talked to them :) it was super great!

Saturday night the Women's conference was WONDERFUL! I loved President Uchtdorf's talk on faith and having faith in Gods love. Because if you know that God loves you, you know that anything and everything that
happens to you, good or bad, is because God loves you and it's happening for a reason.

I love you all, and I hope you have a great week! I'm sorry I didn't get to write any of you, but I'll definitely have more time next week and I can tell you all about the wonderful Sister LeDoux!

Sister Brown :)

Birthday Surprises never get old!  : )
