Elder Ballard & Elder Rasband!! (aka best day ever)

This week was an INCREDIBLE week! So many things to tell you all!! I have been asked a lot of times, is your hair naturally that dark?  Also someone asked me if i was Native American. So a lot of people here are confused what ethnicity i am,(some think i'm spanish) so i'll let you all decide. (: I also get called Sister Morgan from a member in the ward, which is not the first time that has happened. So i guess my hometown is more memorable then my last name. Oh i love the people here. Also my Bishop is Kaden Normon's (a kid i went to high school with) uncle! So small world. wahoo! 

We visited a member last Monday night, Sister Ketch. She is so great! I love her so much! We baked brownies with her, and they were going to be done after we had to leave, so she was gonna make us stay the night so we could take them out for her. haha i love it. 

We went to check on a new investigator, she wasn't home, but as we were talking to the husband their little daughter walks to the door with a Book of Mormon and a restoration pamphlet in her hand showing us she still had them. My heart melted. Miracle: We were tracting Saturday afternoon and went to check on a potential. He said his daughter's friend is christian, so we ended up talking to them and they were soaking it up. She was speechless about how yesterday she was talking to her friend about their being more. I was like ahhh miracles. So she doesnt live in our area, but i hope we cant stay in contact with her. Another miracle: We have an investigator on date for Feb. 11!! He is already so involved in the ward even before we started teaching him!! AHH 

Now for the BEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE: Listening to 2 of the 12 apostles and have 9 of the seventies with us at our mission conference along with the Washington D.C. North Mission was aaaamazing. The spirit in our meeting was indescribable. I got to shake Elder Ballard's hand!!! AHH!! He is thee cutest. Guys i am speechless about this experience and will always remember this. In preparation our mission set a goal to find 500 new investigators with baptism invites in 2 weeks. We found 580+. God is amazing. We had 3 trainings this week which was so good and i definitely needed it.  The apostles are amazing. You can feel Jesus Christ and God emulating from them. The priesthood power that was in that room was so strong. I LOVE the priesthood and am very grateful for it. Their teaching will forever be remembered, i couldn't write fast enough!! One thing that Elder Ballard said was, "Whenever i get tired, i picture our Savior in the Garden of Gethsemane and then I find the strength." We can ALWAYS find strength in our Savior. Alot of their teachings were missionary centered, but i am so honored to have had the opportunity to meet these amazing, funny, smart apostles. I know they love every single one of us just like our Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ do. I love you all and pray for you. Have the best week ever!!
